I love it

Summary: This is the second one for me. I love the way it looks, very stylish as opposed to the Ipod, which is boring, I think. GoGear plays well and I've had a good go with mine, starting in 2008. Sounds good as well.
Summary: I received this product for Christmas and now in March I'm still trying to figure it out! The original did not work properly--after a phone conversation with a Philips tech rep I was instructed to return it for replacement. They would not refund the cost of the player. I use it mostly for audio books. When I load the player, the chapters do not retain their order or their titles.
Summary: Purchased this NEW Philips Vibe 8GB as backup for my other two mp3 players (earlier version 4gb Vibe and 4gb Sansa Clip+) and for the ability to play FLAC encoded music. Compared to the earlier version of Philips Vibe, this new one have a better and more intuitive menu navigation. The navigation pad now have the Play/Pause button in the middle. The aluminum case give it a solid, well built feel.
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.
