Best MP3

 

This is a really good player, its worth the money. The only negative is trying to work out how to do playlists, i am not very techno but i ended up just cutting and pasting as it was easier. would recommend it to everyone.

Impressed

 

Got this model yesterday, and i was very impressed with it's sound quality playback. It's easy to use, and what's most important is it's capability to read loss-less formats like APE and FLAC, and movies as well.

Fantastic MP3/MP4 player

 

There is nothing that I don't like about my new Philips music player, but lots that I do. It is slim, light weight, well designed and feels like a high quality product when I hold it.
