Philips GoGear SA6045 (4GB)

 

As MP3 players go, the GoGear 6045 is neither cheap nor terribly compact, but it's not expensive and huge, either. The 4GB player goes for about $140 (by contrast, the 4GB Creative Zen V Plus is $110) and measures 3.6x2.1x0.5 inches. The relatively...

The Philips GoGear SA6000 offers a user-friendly design, an ample screen, and dedicated volume controls. It includes desirable features such as an FM tuner and photo and video support. The player is compatible with subscription services, and it has a...

The control pad on the GoGear SA6000 feels cheaply built, and there's no album-art support. The unit is large for a flash player, and some music comes across flat while some bass-heavy tracks are slightly distorted

The Philips GoGear SA6545 is a feature-filled MP3 player that will suit those looking for good video playback over a compact form factor.

Philips GoGear SA6045/02 (4GB)

 

Philips strikes a solid balance between music player and video player.

As with so many digital media players these days, the conclusion with this Philips is a bit of a mixed one. With such a low price it's clearly firing directly at the Sandisk Sansa e200 range of players and, to a certain extent it bests them. In...

The Philips GoGear SA6545 is a feature-filled MP3 player that will suit those looking for good video playback over a compact form factor.

User-friendly design ; Ample screen ; Dedicated volume controls ; FM tuner, photo and video support ; Compatible with subscription services ; Has a lot of bass

Control pad feels cheaply built ; No album-art support ; Large for a flash player ; Some music comes across flat ; Some bass-heavy tracks are slightly distorted

Performance Taking everything into account, the GoGear SA6045 is a decent performer overall, though we wouldn't call the sound quality excellent. Most songs -- especially selections from Duran Duran and Kanye West -- sounded very good in testing, with...

I bought this unit in June and today it just died.

 

I hate this product because it did not last for even 4 months. I charged it lastnight and then I took it with me to use it and it would not turn on or do anything. What a waste of money.

It was compatible with audible. The sound was okay

The buttons are cheap and did not always work on the first try

Consumer review by:

Doesn't work properly, battery failed. Rubbish

 

Basically, I would urge people to avoid buying this product. The firmware seems buggy, as it crashes now and then, the only recourse being to press the reset button. Worse still, after only a few months use, the battery collapsed, and now only gives...

The styling is quite good, and the build feels a reasonable quality ; Sound quality seems quite adequate, although volume output is a little low, when using with front panel input on a car head unit

Buggy firmware, sometimes it locks up ; Bundled in media converter is slow to the point of being unusable ; On screen text is a bit too small ; After 4 months use, the battery collapsed, now only gives about 4 hours use

Awesome sound and clear video, screen smallish,

 

at this price point, you cant get any better ...and now its been working like a champ for almost 2 years now.

Had it for 2 years now, use it mainly for gym and travel. The screen could be bigger but than whats the limit, 50 inch hd. Great for general use. I had mine freeze up and do all sorts of rubbish and i formatted it and it only formatted to 800mb

if pluugen into a car audio system. sound is not loud at all, in fact very low but with headphones, its great. ...Then i rset it a few times and tried different media players and rest and formatted a few more times
