Summary: It seems this item is full of problems. Even on the manufacturer's website they address major issues with the harddrive in this unit. There also seems to be a problem with the batteries. I wouldn't recommend this item.
Summary: I bought the HDD 100 a while back and fell in love with it. The styling is great and the analog and voice input capability were amazing. The processor speed is very slow and the PC interface is cumbersome at best.
Excerpt: Before it was necessary to have an ipod in order to not be an outcast in today's society, I had this little number, and it wasn't a bad MP3 player either. It allows 20 gigabytes of songs like most ipods do now which is quite a lot. It has a sleek black and silver design is very attractive.
Excerpt: I feel that this MP3 player is good but I am sure there are some that are better. If someone thinks that the problems I have identified are minor then I would defiently recommend this device to them, but for me I think I would chose another device over this one.

Excerpt: this mp3 is very good, the actual device is very easy to use the battery, if cared for last a good 10 hours.The 20 gigs allows for mass storage of upto 10000 wma songs or 5000mp3 approx.Its quite light and small enough to fit in your jeans,the headphones are comfortable and give a good sound aswell...
Excerpt: This is a very nice unit. There is probably too much space on it and i can't help but wonder; if they'd cut it down to 6gig or 8gig they could have made the unit slightly smaller. the menu's are very easy to use and i found that i wanted to change a setting i didn't need to refer to the manual; very...
Pros: masses of space, you'll never need another mp3 player again
Cons: but you'll have to buy one cause this one'll scratch so quickly
Excerpt: I have owned my Phillips HDD for 2 years and on the whole have been very pleased with it. The one major annoyance has always been the slow transfer speed via the DMM software. I have read several instances of the same issue and also people stating the player freezes.
Excerpt: When I got my HDD120 I was really happy because I knew I was getting an mp3 player for my birthday but I didn't know which one. I honestly expected to receive one which held around 100 tracks - certainly not 10,000!
Pros: Easy - to - use aesthetically pleasing mass storage device .
Cons: So much room that you start to forget which albums you have on it .
Excerpt: I got this at a good price, it looks very nice, and it has a huge memory. And once you get the hang of it, it is dead easy to use. But... you have to get there first. The instruction book is absolutely useless, and I don't mind reading it. Even now I know what I am doing, it still doesn't help.
Excerpt: software difficult to install it told me i needed to install updates from philips which i could not find. my friend was baffled by it as well and he work in IT so technology is no stranger to him and I am a BSC multimedia student.
Pros: Large storage space, classy, recognised brand
