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: 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. The mp3 player came with no written instructions, all inquiries have to be read online. I have also had problems with the player not saving music that I download onto it.
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 has been that it hasn't worked at all. The radio worked but I can't play any of the files I have on it. It is by no means user friendly.
Summary: Pros: I like the talking stopwatch. Sound quality is OK, I like the EQ & Bass level options. Headphones stay in place. Pretty durable. I've had mine over a year, it's been dropped lots and still works.(see arm bracket mounting issues below.) But, Oh, the CONS: Battery life is HORRIBLE. I'm lucky if I get two workouts per battery. They need to use more than one AAA battery for this thing. Never could get the mini-SD card to work.
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: 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. This MP3 player is the reason why I started using rechargeable batteries.
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. After this happen to me i went out and bought a ipod which i did not like and took back.
Summary: I purchased three of these MP3s--One for me and two for my two children. One of the battery covers did not fit correctly and within one month of purchasing it, it fell off the product and got lost. I called Philips to try to purchase a new battery cover. I was told they do not sell it separately and the best they could do would be to exchange the product "out of warranty" for $75!! That was almost what I paid for the product! Also, the battery life is TERRIBLE.
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!
