Philips GoGear Muse SA2MUS16S/02 review


The latest version of Philips' GoGear Muse is a touchscreen MP3 player with a 3.2in 320x480 display. It has 16GB of storage, excellent audio format support and the ability to play 720p HD video and output it via a mini-HDMI port. There's also an FM...

Sound quality over all else


I am relatively happy with this purchase. The sound quality is excellent and was the main reason that attracted me to this device. The touch screen is a little annoying being unresponsive at times. The tracks are put into alphabetical order, something...

GoGear Muse


Was impressed at first .. loaded MP3s perfect . But wouldnt load MP4s or AVI files . even though it says it will on the box . Wont allow third party downloads. You have to use phillips songbird program , which slowed down my PC ??
