Philips GoGear Vibe 4GB Review


Philips launched the GoGear Vibe not too long ago and although it's not meant to be a direct iPod competitor by any means, it does do the job of being an affordable MP3 player and a serious alternative to the Shuffle. In the Box: The packaging is...

Priced well for a 4GB MP3 player that also supports video files. Great starter MP3 player or player for the gym

Navigation buttons are stiff to operate. Video playback is low quality

Philips GoGear Vibe SA1VBE04K 4GB
