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

Philips HDD1620 6GB

 

Very stylish and very easy to use. I use Windows Media Player to listen to music on my computer and was pleased to find that music can be added quickly and easily to the mp3 player via WMP. It was nice to find that no additional programs were needed!...

The touch control pad can get dirty quickly
