Philips GoGear Opus 8GB

 

Could this be Philips' Magnum Opus?

The Opus isn't a bad looking beast in its own understated way, but there's something conservative about the whole look. If it were a car, the old SA5825 would have been a Vauxhall Vectra, and it wouldn't have hurt Philips to think outside of the box...

Philips GoGear Opus review

 

Philips' 8GB GoGear Opus is an updated version of our favourite MP3 player, the GoGear SA5285/02 (Labs, Shopper 251).

The Opus is an excellent- value MP3 player with great battery life and good sound quality.

Philips GoGear Opus 8GB review

 

The latest addition to Philips' GoGear line of portable music players is the Philips GoGear Opus 8GB, a sharp-looking and comparatively large 2.8in-screened player.

Philips GoGear Opus

 

The slow interface probably kills what would have been an excellent player with decent format support and great sound quality.

Very neutral sounding ; Good bundled in-ear headphones ; Build quality is solid ; Uses standard mini-USB ; Decent software bundle

Awkwardly positioned headphone port ; Menu navigation slow ; Average screen quality ; Limited file support
