Summary: I got a Philips MP3 for my birthday. I was excited to have something that would let me listen to my music. First of all, the sound got WAY to loud at the lowest volume level. It gives me a headache when I listen. Next, you can barely have ANY vidoes on it, the best I could come up with is 100% sound, 0% picture, vice versa, or 50% sound, 50% picture. Thirdly, I can't make a playlist other than the "To Go" playlist. It always runs out of battery too.
Summary: okay i get this thing for 60 bucks. It works fine for a little bit, but the controls are all screwde up. if i press fast forward it will rewind and it will pop up the stupid annoying "do you want to add this to the playlist". it will do the the same for rewind. if i press the menu button it will pause the song and go to to the menu or stop it go to to the menu then go back to the song and restart it. charging is another pain.
Summary: I have a Disney Mix Max video/music player for one of my kids that we've been using for a while. It plays WMV video and music as you'd expect. While there have been issues with that device, I was hoping that the Philips SA32 would be at least the same. While I have found that the user interface and controls are a bit better on the SA32, the SMV video format is terrible compared to WMV.
Summary: First of all, bear in mind that I got this player for $30 in Staples (May 09) so that sweetened the deal for me. And also, I am looking to get a larger unit in the future. Pros: 1- Nice size player. Small and fits in your hand and pocket. 2- Very responsive when I connect it to my PC. 3- Very fast transfers of files. 4- Good video conversion software. But it converts the files only to an SMV format. Nothing else plays on the unit but .smv. Not mp4 or 3gp.
Summary: I have the 8gb version of this player and so far I've had no problems. For the money, you really can't go wrong with the amount of storage you get as you'd pay close to the same price for other players with half that amount. That said, I think the player is VERY easy to use. Navigation is easy and the interface is very polished. Photo resolution is pretty sharp and not pixelated. Movies are a sort of a pain because the conversion program hardly recognizes any formats.
Excerpt: I'm not a keen fan of inventive technology however simple it appears to be, and so went looking for an MP3 download player in Argos. I was amazed at just how expensive these little wizard gadgets can be (the more select brands) even though many do have video features and other complimentary tools I wouldn't have a clue where to start with the more sophisticated ones.
Excerpt: The Go Gear is Phillips response to the excellent ipod and the Sansa mp3 player. I was bought this mp3 player last year and am still undecided about this one. Firstly though it allows the standard fare of being playing mp3 files and WMA files but it also allows for video playback. It is nice to have this additional feature on the phone but it definitely comes secondary to the music.
Excerpt: I got this product for my dad at xmas and have been trying to organise some playlists on it. Just worked out how to do it.When you go to the music folder where all your tunes are, organise them into different folders and name them seperately. Organise the folders like playlists. When you turn on the device go to folder view on the main menu and you'll find all your organised folders and listen to them like you would a playlist. Best I could do.Hope this helps someone.
Summary: Ho comprato tempo fa questo lettore della Philips e devo dire che mi sono trovata molto bene. E' comodo e facile da utilizzare. La memoria interna è buona, entrano 4 GB di musica e devo dire che per me sono più che sufficienti. CI ho anche inserito qualche foto ma la risoluzione ovviamente lascia un pò a desiderare..ma è normale, infondo è nato come lettore mp3 non come macchina digitale.
Summary: Un nuovo modello di lettore mp4/mp3 Il GoGear con memoria da 4Gb non espandibile, è uno strumento con molte funzionalità utili ma che comunque possono essere ritrovate in ormai quasi molti lettori multimediali. Queste funzionalità sono quelle di leggere video con una buona qualità, (i video dovranno essere convertiti con il programma in dotazione con il lettore) ha anche un lettore di txt interno, e possibile visualizzare immagini jpeg , e ancora ha una radio...
