A good, simple music player - nothing more, nothing less
2 February 2010
Excerpt: This is a good player while it lasts, but mine only lasted 2 years! On the plus side, it uses standard AAA batteries meaning you can charge several at once or cycle them and never go without power. 2GB was ample for me, but for other users it may not be. They appear to be £35 now whereas mine cost £70 at Argos. Menus are good, be sure to update the firmware to the latest version.
Excerpt: Very nice player, huge space for mp3s. The only disadvantage is poor handling of many files, if you got lets say 300 songs and want to listen to the 150 one, you have to press the button 150 times, which is sometimes frustrating. It has got many different colours of backlight, you can even set it to choose colour randomly after every pressing the button. Sound quality is good if you connect different headphones, the one with it are not very good.
Pros: 2gb, possibility to use as a pendrive, many languages
Excerpt: I was looking for a small and portable device on which to store a variety of different music for use at the gym and on holiday and was not disappointed. Philips are renowned for their excellent quality products and this was no exception. Small and compact, I was amazed at the sound quality which is better than my home stereo system !
Pros: small and lightweight with excellent sound quality . easy to use with voice recorder function
Cons: battery is not rechargeable . no neckstrap or carrying case supplied
