Philips GoGear SA1335


Philips' last entry into the portable multimedia space, the [[prodid:1775]], was a fairly competent device, but it didn't particularly impress us. The...

Stylish design, Good sound, USB port on the unit

Some interface response issues

Product Specifications

Step out in style with your MP3 and WMA music on the radiantly chic GoGear SA1335 1GB. Transfer music and data or recharge via direct USB. The SA1335's 2-color OLED display offers color combination in a super-bright display and also allows for animation. This makes for easier reading of the display, and for fun sharing with friends. Voice Recording Function converts your player into a handy dictation machine. Besides playing music or listening to radio, you can also record notes or reminders for work or school, record shopping lists and phone numbers - even song lyrics. By pressing the recording button and speaking into the built-in microphone, voice messages are compressed and stored either in the built-in internal memory or on to the external memory card. Voice Recording Function gives you a highly portable voice recorder allowing you to record anything, anytime and anywhere! Devices with direct USB can be plugged directly into the USB port of your PC without the need for any cables. Your computer will automatically recognize the device as a removable USB mass storage device (Windows 98 requires additional drivers) allowing you to easily drag and drop files via Windows Explorer (or Apple Folders) between your computer and device. The player's equalizer allows you to select preset modes that optimize certain frequency bands to enhance specific music styles. The player utilizes graphic equalizing technology to automatically set the optimum sound frequency balance for a chosen music style. The equalizer allows you to enjoy the optimum sound depending on the music style.
