Summary: This is the first MP3 player I have purchased and I wanted something simple. I did not want tons of bells and whistles at a high price. I wanted the MP3 to download radio broadcasts and to copy music from my CD's to listen to while I run. We are on a budget, so I also wanted a great value. I am happy to say that the MP3 was charged and ready to go very quickly.
Summary: Ok i got this last week and it is awesome,syncing is easy and simple,puting photos aswell and downloading videos using windows media converter is a breeze the screen maybe small but the sound quality is great the head phones are a bit uncomfortable so i suggest u buy another pair of headphones but other then that awesome for music,pics and vids highly recomend.
Summary: This little player has great sound and is super easy to load and use, however... I have an issue with the jack that the headphones plug in to. The first one I bought the headphone plug would just fall out, so running or any sort of movement was totally out of the question. I thought it was a problem with the player I had purchased so I took it back and exchanged it for the exact same player and the new one has the exact same problem.
Summary: I got this for Christmas, and I didn't like the earbuds, so I went to Office Depot and got a pair of headphones (that cost 30$) and when I put it in then took it out, the TIP of the jack got stuck into the slot. NEVER buy this product.
Summary: The product arrived, factory sealed and would not turn on. I contacted Phillips and they immediately sent me a replacement, asking that I return the original after the replacement was received. I was impressed at that point. The replacement did turn on and I did load some mp3 files onto it. It was very difficult to navigate the menu and go from item to item. When I tried to delete some files, they would not delete. I am returning the item for refund.
Summary: I have never owned an MP3, so this is all new to me. I figured if I couldn't figure it out on my own, I would read the manual. Most of it I figured out on my own, but it took me a WHILE to figure out how to put pictures on it. I went back to read the manual, and it was not helpful. Also, when I title a song and the artist, this player will put the song under unknown artists, and I can't figure out how to change it.
Summary: Very Nice for the Price. Worked fine for about 3 months. Now all it does when you turn it on is say "Phillips" and then cuts off. Was having second thoughts because I've had a Phillips MP3 player years ago and it started doing the same thing. Tried putting it on the charger and all it does is flash and cuts off....Really disappointed right now.
Summary: I just bought this yesterday for my wife, and I am the one enjoying it!! I loaded 40 songs, which is EXTREMELY EASY, and I am loving the sound quality! An IPOD might be better quality, but as long as I have good sound, this is MORE than fine for me!! Loading it is a snap.....just click and drag to the player icon, and it is loaded! Great sound, great value, and NONE of the issues of the negative reviews! I might just have to buy another one!
