Summary: This is a good cheap MP3 player. No bells n whistles, but it plays the music you put on it loudly. The integrated USB charging also means you will NEVER misplace the proprietary charger and have it clogging a drawer in your house somewhere, unused. I would definintely buy it again.
the maximum volume is lower than I'd like. I use it for podcasts

Summary: as noted by others, the maximum volume is lower than I'd like. I use it for podcasts, and it's a tick below the volume I'd like on a cardio machine. It's pretty hard to hear when the subway is starting and stopping as well. Otherwise as expected and I'm happy with the price.
Plays all day, fast to charge on the fly, fast to move music to and from

Summary: This is VERY easy to use, and it does charge really quickly, which is why I bought it. My son uses a mp3 player at work, and the fast charge lets him use a lipstick style charger to charge up on breaks when he needs to. It's fairly sturdy and inexpensive, which is what I was looking for, since it is used primarily in a work environment. I just wish it were more than 2 gigs. It's cute though, and it is very easy to just move files right over to it.
Summary: This review is for the Philips 2gb Blue SoundDot MP3 player. It performs well for it's niche: the simple, affordable, playing of MP3 files. My only complaint is that it does not have a "lock" feature, so the little player will just keep on trucking, ignoring the many accidental bumps and pushes that may occur, especially at the gym.
