Good choice for this price.

 

First of all it's a responsible, rock-solid player and good partner in traveling, sport and so on. The Full Sound technology making this a must-have. I just love the design of this player, especially the metal housing, and the ergonomic interface. It...

Playback time with one charge is convincing. Sound Quality with FullSound on is great ; Equalizer is great and Smart Shuffle lists are really smart ; 8GB for this price is great. FM recieving and recording quality is amazing

There is no Linux or Mac version of the Philips Songbird software. The Win version is buggy. Can't add playlists easily. Editing playlists on the device is hard and slow

A decent MP3 Player; with multiple - abilities.

 

It's good, durable, basic MP 3 / video player, as long as you don't wish to add the personal frills. That some of the other MP 3 Players offer, for around the same price.

Good full sound, & decent video resolution

Program files show up in the menu, with no way to hide them. The Philip Songbird application is a bit awkward & tedious to use, when loading this device. There is NO way to personalize the Device (change the theme on the player, re-organize the menu l

Does work on Macs

 

getting it to work on a Mac, make sure your not using AAC files (the normal I Tunes format) but other than that hick-up works great

easy to load, charge, make different folders for music

Easy to Use and great Value with a few glitches...

 

Overall the product is good and perfect for everyday use, I think it takes way to long to load the songs onto the player. Once the songs are loaded (took me almost 2 hours to add 4 GB of music) the player is great especially the smart shuffler......

Philips makes a great mp3 player. I used to have a 2gb one, but wanted one that had more capacity. This one allows you to set up playlists, unlike my older model. The sound, as always, is sharp and clear. The headphones are comfortable and allow for...
