Summary: like so many of philips other great little concept ideas this lets it down in practicality the review given claiming erratic bahaviour from the player is very true, and i also suffered the power button failure after 6 weeks of ownership and fairly little use. the other downside is the usb charging cable is not a standard size, so if you lose/damage it you're well and truly knackered.
Summary: Unless you get it for free, stay away from this MP3 player. Cons: Buttons are not intuitive, especially the play/pause button and the on/off button. Sound quality is below average for an MP3 player, even when using good headphones. Buttons are tiny and the icons are the same color as the unit, so without 20-20 vision, it's tough to see Pros: None, really Recommendations: If you want a very small MP3 player, go with the Sansa Clip or the Ipod Shuffle.
Summary: First of all, this device has its weaknesses. It isn't a Shuffle, which to me is a good thing, but it is a little bigger, and it only supports MP3s and WMAs. That being said, get yourself a program like Songbird, which will transcode any music that isn't in one of these formats in to WMA upon syncing, and this problem is solved. That is a workaround, yes, but it is an easy one, and so I can live with it.
Summary: One and a half month after I bought this, I rue the day i bought this thing. Sound quality is bad enough but It crashes, behaves erratically too often. Bluetooth sound quality and range is pathetic.. connection gets lost too many times. Just after a month, the power switch does not work. the software has to be repaired with the utility provided too often and still the problems persist. Stay Away from this!
Summary: Only when you goto the Philips web-site, will you discover the number one question NOT posted in the specs: No Bluetooth headset support. i.e. No A2DP profile support. You cannot connect this device to any bluetooth headset. Buyer's remorse.
Excerpt: Le raccolte punti alle volte danno buoni frutti... e la mia cara mamma anzichè aggiungere pentole e coperchi alla già grande collezione, ha preferito farmi un (graditissimo) dono scegliendo questo magnifico oggetto! SA2446BT è un lettore mp3 dalle dimensioni contenute (58 x 22.9 x 11.4) e dal design moderno.
Summary: Hallo liebe Ciao-User, mein Sohn wollte sich neulich von seinem Jugendweihegeld einen neuen MP3-Player kaufen. Also fuhren wir mal wieder zu MediMax, um uns etwas umzusehen. Nach langem Suchen schien er endlich etwas gefunden zu haben. Nämlich den Philips SA2446BT von dem ich euch jetzt auch gleich berichten werde. Er bietet dank seiner FullSound-Technologie einen super Klang und kostete 79,99€, war also bezahlbar.
