Summary: I bought this as a replacement for a Philips GoGear Vibe 4GB mp3 player I had bought before. This model (which has the same name) has no bass response. I used the same music, the same EQ settings, and the same earbuds and there is no detectable bass. Philips has obviously replace the original chip with an inferior one. I returned this unit for a refund.
Summary: I got this for my wife and she loves it. The great sound, the compatibility with 7 makes it a good buy and a great performer. However, the software that comes with it is difficult to use and even locked up my computer. The instructions are for techies and just didn't work. However it works fine without the software and I can download music from most sources using Amazon Cloud, Microsoft Media Player and Real Player Cloud.
Summary: I only use this for music and it works well enough for my simple needs. There's enough capacity for lots of songs and podcasts. I like the fact I can adjust the equalizer too. The screen is small but so it the price.
Summary: I use mine solely for audiobooks that I rent from the library. It does require a little manual work to get it to work best, but it's worth it. After I download the audiobooks, I cut and paste them into the Audible file under Services. When I want to download more books while I'm listening to a book, I have found it best to make a note of what disk and time I am on since I'm too lazy to see if there is a way to bookmark it.
Summary: My wife listens to her music on this working nights in the warehouse. Sound quality is great and its size is just right for the arm band holder. Its easy to download music on works well with windows media player.
