Buttons don't work, No album art in display - disappointed.

Summary: Screen doesn't display album art; you'd think it would by the specs and the picture. Buttons are terrible. They literally work about every third or fourth time you press them. Maybe mine's defective. I had a GoGear before this one, must have been a different model number, because the old one I had was so much better. After some research I just bought a fat micro SD card for my phone. I'm just gonna use that from now on.
Summary: I got this for my son, because I some how threw his other one away. I felt really bad about it because he had the original for quite a long time. I was in a desperate search to find the same one because he loved his old one of this same product and he was thrilled to find out that I found the same exact one. He has never had any problems what so ever with this device or even his old one of this same product.
Summary: Bought this item in lieu of an iPod & I love it! It's very compatible with any PC & any music related programs. Loading music is very easy & it has radio capability which makes it even better. Great buy!
Summary: I bought this for my son as he decided he needed a new one besides my castoff. (It wouldn't hold a charge.) This one, however, holds a great charge! I was really impressed with that. The sound is good and the features are perfect for my boy. The shuffle button could be in a different place since we don't use it (creatures of habit) and my son keeps hitting it when he goes for the other buttons. But we are very happy with this mp3 and I really think we'd get another one.
Does it's job reasonably, but wouldn't reccommend it.

Summary: There's really nothing wrong with this player... it does what an MP3 player should do. My big turnoff with it was that the software doesn't allow syncing of subscription tracks from online stores (like Rhapsody). Also, it's EXTREMELY small... but I wouldn't consider that a con unless you're wanting to watch videos on it. It's good for loading your CD collection onto, but otherwise I'd splurge and get a 4gb player that allows DRM track syncing.
Summary: Okay, this little mp3 player is really a decent little gadget. The sound quality is terrific, video plays decently and all that. What really turned me off about this player is that it doesn't support DRM files (i.e. if you subscribe to any form of rental tracks from, say Rhapsody or Napster or whatever, it will not sync onto the device. Upon hours of researching, I finally found that this is just a part of the player's software).
Summary: This was my first mp3 player ever, and acquired it almost two years ago. At first I was thrilled, as it was a new type of device for me, but as time went on, I realized how many shortcomings this device has. Note: I own the grey one, not the black one, but the devices themselves appear to be identical despite the color. The controls are the biggest sore-point.
Summary: I loved the Phillips GoGear Media Player. It is small and that is exactly what I wanted. Easy to use, capable of everything I wanted it for. Pictures and music. For the price you can not beat this deal. I would definitly buy again.
