Awesome product


best $xx you can spend. you can't even get a 2gb storage let alone this has built in FM, recorder and mp3 player & storage

Awesome performance for the price. perfectly designed and it might be cumbersome or too advanced for older people/novice users but once you know how to charge this.. it keeps going and going. Nothing to complain

the headphone is awesome except it's slippery sometimes due either size of my ear or bit poor design on their part. it's rubber coated so it slips from your ear easily

Pretty good player


This has been a pretty good player. The SQ is very nice. I have not experienced any lockups, but I upgraded the firmware to V6 as soon as I got it. I have a feeling all the negative reviews are being done by 1 or 2 disgruntled owners. You know the...

Good sound quality ; Feels sturdy ; Better than expected battery life ; Attractive design * logical controls

Weak headphone output ; Minimal information

I thought that I was buying a good product since it was Philips.

I listed them all earlier in a different review

Locked up one day on the "Philips" screen, and stayed there until the battery died. Can't power back up or recharge through USB (lost the AC adapter). Seems to be a recurring problem with Philips MP3 players

Recertified: PHILIPS Silver/Black 2GB MP3 Player HDD082/17


received it within 3 days as Newegg is the best as always. Been shopping with them for 2 years now and not have 1 bad product so that should tell you something. Received it and automatically knew how to use it and did not need instructions. Thanks...

Silver and black which also matches my Vivitar 5.0 Megapixel Digital Camera which mother also bought me through Newegg. Nice shaped and nicely designed. buttons nice and big and easy to push unlike most other MP3 players. 2GB which is nice size as I...

Requires WMP10 and only WMP10 which it's no biggy to me ; Nothing although the screen is all black as I prefer the lighted Blue LCD Screen and hard to read. Screen sucks and at night time need a flashlight just to see what song is playing but other...

This one was Bipolar


I purchased my first MP3 player back in November 2005 and it happened to be Philips HDD082. I bought it because of the cheap price, roughly $100 at WalMart and because of the design. I liked that it had an FM tuner in it and it ran with Windows Media. ...

A small capacity, but decent MP3 player


The first thing I must say about this product is that you can create as many playlists as you want, but only from within window's media player 10 and then transfer those settings by syncing to the player. It is not a very user friendly process compared...

Cheap price, sleek design, good sound quality, built-in radio, good included earbuds, decent battery life

You must use Media Player, you must sync playlists, could be more user friendly
