Not bad, for it's age

gwzcomps, Ebay

  • Summary: It is a simple MP3 player, with only one flaw that bugs me. I don't like the fact that you can't charge it without a power cord. I would have given it a five if it were chargeable through the usb port. Simple interface plus it is easy to copy music on it (Just drag and drop). Would be great for a cheap mp3 player/radio for jogging.

  • Excerpt: "...containing a hard drive, your Philips HDD will ocasionally crash.... do not worry, simply press..." What?! You wouldn't expect to be sold a wardrobe and be told "oh yeah, the door sometimes sticks so just give it a kick and it'll be fine" or be sold a car and told "the hand brake is a bit rubbish on these models, so don't park it on a hill..." I know this is the same for most hard-drive MP3 players, but the fact that this one has so few working ...
  • Pros: Small .  .  .

iamasadli..., Ciao
23 June 2006
  • Excerpt: "Ok I will review it point by point. Advantages: Cheaper than the competition-At the time i got the device it was around £109, the only other hard drive mp3 players were nearer £175. Though this is no longer the case so this advantage is somewhat rebundant. Dcent display-Simple and clear display with easy to use and understand control's. Though it's no Ipod or Iriver to be honest. LCD display which is pretty enough for it's job. Great headphones- ...
  • Pros: Cheaper than the competition, decent display, great headphones .  .  .
  • Cons: Useless software, small memory, no longer worth the money, dated .  .  .

Not Happy

18 January 2006
  • Excerpt: "...not loaded. Secondly having contacted Philips on 4 seperate occasion by email I still await a response 2 weeks after my original email. I've now had time to read a few more reviews from other who purchased this poisoned chalice over Christmas and with 1 or 2 exceptions they overall impression if that the Philips 2GB HDD070 is a dud. Bad technology. Terrible support services from Philips. Hopeless software. Whatever you do in 2006 buy one of these ...

Think Twice

  • Excerpt: "...everything on it. I contacted Philips and they were extremely helpful and offered to pick it up; which they did. They sent e-mails telling me what was going on, which was re-assuring. The last e-mail i recieved was one telling me that they were sending me a HDD070 instead, and it arrived today. Unfortunetly, this one was also corrupt, as when i began charging it, the screen flashes and it also makes a high pitched noise. I have then e-mailed them ...
  • Pros: Small, slim, looks really good, easy to use
  • Cons: hard - drive corrupts easily, soft - ware is poor

Phillips So close yet so far.

fuzzycats..., Ciao
3 October 2005
  • Excerpt: "...got a firmware update from Philips off their website but this seemed to send the MP3 player crazy. My PC could no longer read the device. i presume that this is down to the fact that the software for the PC was not updated. I slowly became more and more frustrated with the Player. I sent it back and got a refund. I think Phillips could do with just having one piece of software to upload MP3s onto the player or make it appear as an external hard disk ...
  • Pros: Looks and feels great in the hand
  • Cons: screen a little hard to see and buttons sticky

  • Excerpt: "I bought the Philips MP3 player in December 2004, from Tesco online for a modest price of £139 for the 2Gb version. After a long journey to the Amtrack depot, I finally managed to obtain my MP3 player. When I opened the box, it looked a fantastic MP3 player and was a lot smaller than I had imagined. Unfortunately, the software was very poor to use, but after finally transferring all the songs, I was impressed with the quality of the sound. Also, ...
  • Pros: Radio, good sound quality
  • Cons: Unreliable, poor build, fragile, no colour screen

Not having it very long so far, I don't think there are many disadvantages, so ill start with the advantages first, whilst I have a think about the latter! It is white in colour - back and front, with silver sides and silver trim. I love this look because it is smart and stylish. The design, as you can see from the picture is very minimilist which is good for me because I don't like ...
  • Pros: Very Stylish, Small and Easy to Carry Around
