Philips GoGear Jukebox HDD1620 (6GB) review


The 6GB Philips GoGear Jukebox HDD1620 will please penny-pinchers and patient power users alike, but if you demand a speedy processor in your MP3 player, look elsewhere

Attractive price ; Sharp, full-colour display ; Voice recorder ; Included earbuds are surprisingly decent

Glossy, black surface is highly smudge-prone ; Touch-sensitive controls are ultrasensitive ; Processor isn't always up to speed

Performance In our tests, the Philips GoGear HDD1620 offered excellent sound quality, even when using the included earbuds. We still recommend swapping these for a better pair, however, as they barely block outside noise. The player's battery life also...

Philips GoGear HDD1620 6 GB: Not worth it's salt, an insult to working mp3 players!


This MP3 layer is an insult to all other mp3 players out there which actually work. The thing constantly freezes up on you (upon which you have to restart it by pressing the volume up and power key together). When it freezes the thing will keep playing...

Decent size, respectable download speeds onto system

where to begin? Crashes/freezes often, tacky looking, difficult to use

Philips Gogear HDD1620 6.1 GB : Philips HDD1630 - A Brick with ear buds!
