Summary: Pros: Great design for the gym Good radio reception Built-in stopwatch Very inexpensive Cons: Bad battery life Only compatible for sync with WMP 10 (not the newest) Very difficult to add a play list Overall, I like it just because of the great design and ease of use while exercising.
Summary: This mp3 has been pure disappointment. I have gone through so many batteries that I could have probably purchased an ipod by now. Even with the high quality Energizer Lithium batteries, it doesn't last long. The arm band also fell apart on me, with the plastic piece breaking off.
Summary: Asi es, la verdad me ha salido buenisimo, la bateria dura lo que debe de durar, aprox unas 8 horas.... Vino en buenas condiciones y es pequeño, cabe en la mano.... Lo recomiendo para corredores de media maraton, acaso piensan gastar 1GB de música en todo el recorrido? lo dudo!
Summary: Stoped working after 2 months. I only used the radio and liked the presets. However it now has a demon and when you plug in the head phones it turns off or does weird scanning. But it doesn't work. It also used a Battery every four hours or so I bought rechargables but it was to much of a hassle.
Summary: It's a shame that this mp3 has an incredible poor battery life, because the radio is nice and it has some cool features and design. The battery hardly lasts 3 hours, that's why I give it only 2 stars.
Summary: The Philips PSA232 is not the worst MP3 I've ever encountered, but it's certainly far from good. I purchased this model (on clearance, not surprisingly as it turns out) and returned it three weeks later. The main problems: 1) As everyone has mentioned, the battery life is terrible.
Summary: I am like one of the other reviewers. I wanted to like this mp3 player but it is so terrible. I wish I would have held out for the Sony or Ipod. I bought this because it was on the cheaper side and I thought Philips would have been a good brand to have.It works sometimes and this is the longest it...
Summary: I use mine when I am on the tredmill or when I jog. The battery life is not that bad and if you register it when you first get it they will replace the back if it falls off. I like it and I only paid $60 for it. Not for the hardcore music fan.
Summary: This Mp3 Player does have alot of problems but those can be fixed. 1. The battery life does suck but after you buy yourself one of those 15 minute rapid chargers that really is not a problem anymore. 2. It sometimes does not let you play your music.
