Summary: This device is easy to use, easy to load with music, has great sound, and is incredibly durable. A bit more than what I like to pay traditionally for an MP3 player, but for this quality, I am absolutely willing to fork over the extra loot. I tragically switched to another, more expensive brand of MP4 player at Christmas, only to find that it was internally flimsy and not able to put up with the wear and tear. It broke down after a month.
Summary: I bought this player to replace my old Raga which has disappeared & which worked great. This model has many flaws & features that made the old model suit my needs are gone. The time it takes the Raga to update after turning it on is over 70 seconds & it frequently turns off while using after skipping songs in shuffle mode.
Summary: I had owned Phillips last generation of GoGear Raga and was extremely happy with it's operation, simplicity and incredible durability. This player is a huge step back. The case is cheap feelling, cheap looking and controls are no longer tactile. The bootup takes roughly twice as long as the last generation and is so glitchy that I stopped using it after a week.
Summary: I use my mp3 player as a replacement to using my cell phone during workouts. I like these kind of players because they are small and less expensive if they get damaged from sweat or impact during a workout. Pro: Long battery life Headphones stay firmly connected Cons: (a lot) The shuffle feature on the mp3 player doesn't really shuffle. When you click shuffle you get a random order of songs on your player but everytime you hit shufffle you get the same order. So dumb.
Summary: My daughter loved receiving this for her 8th birthday. It works well for that age, and after a little practice, she's able to locate specific songs and albums by herself. She uses it when she's working on schoolwork, riding in the car, or falling asleep at night.
Summary: I own and enjoy the earlier version of the Raga (you can tell the difference by where the lock button is.. ). This newer version is simply terrible. The firmware "update" actually made the player entirely unusable. Imagine a 1-2 second delay every time you press a button. Imagine how terrible that would be if you were on a run, at the gym, working in the yard.. I cant even begin to note all of the problems the new firmware created.
