Summary: Bought this mp3 player back in 2008, and I still use it to this day. It's scratched to bits, from being dropped, stepped on, sliding it in my pocket while running- but it's durability and (over time) sentimental value had me hooked.
Summary: I am shocked by the amount of bad reviews for this player. I loved it when I had it (I lost it so now i'm looking to buy a new one.)... I am very picky when it comes to reviews because I'm not sure who to believe and I was actually surprised to see the bad reviews.
Summary: For the $45 price tag this is a tremendous value. I added Sennheiser isolating earbuds and the results have been superb. I haven't had the reliability issues I've seen shown on here and have only had to reset the unit once. The operating logic is cumbersome, and a better playlist system would help.
Summary: I am VERY happy with the product. PERFECT for LINUX. I have found this device amazingly good for the price, for sound, audio, pics, text and more. I am using with Linux (Ubuntu) and it is totally compatible with and usable in Linux.
Excerpt: This mp3 player offers you great MP3 and WMA playback, at a relatively cheap price. You also get reception from roughly 20 different radio stations and you can watch video clips (in 220 x 176 pixels) as long as they are the correct format.
a really pleasing, tactile, easy to use product which sounds really good too!

Excerpt: I was pleased and dismayed to get a Philips go GoGear ! Pleased because I have always wanted something like this, since my old cassette player Walkman, which used to seem the height of fashion!
Excerpt: This MP3 player is a better and cheaper alternative to the Ipod. It's easer to get music to the MP3 then the Ipod and I think cheaper too. Not only that it has great features such as the ability to read txt files, not you're cup of tea well Im sure the video player and the music to keep you company...
Excerpt: Man, where do I start? I've had this product since Sunday (August 3, 2008). So far it has given me to problems whatsoever. I was looking for a new mp3 player that wasn't too cheap but also wasn't too expensive. To tell you the truth, this is the most expensive player that I've ever had.
Summary: Ce baladeur Philips GoGear est un petit bijoux ! Je m'explique : il est ultra léger, tout petit, et d'une simplicité d'utilisation ! Certes l'écran est réduit, néanmoins la qualité de l'image est bonne. Il possède une radio, ce qui est très intéressant et utile.
