Philips Micro Audio Jukebox HDD060


This is a capable player with good navigation and a nice design, but there are more capacious players with faster interfaces in the same category and general price range.

Although the Philips Micro Audio Jukebox HDD060 is a nice enough player, it falls short of the Creative Nomad MuVo2 and the Editors' Choice-winning Apple iPod Mini in transfer speed, software, and storage. But we do love those ear buds.

Philips HDD060 Review

Philips Micro Jukebox HDD060


Resembling an iPod in colour and style, this mini hard drive-based MP3 player lands way off the mark in terms of design, features, and performance.

Compact and stylish ; Functions as an external drive

Pricey ; Cluttered display ; Slow menu navigation ; Doesn't play copy-protected WMA files ; Poor bundled software ; Slow transfer speeds ; No resume function

Maybe not a shining star, but good value


I bought this because I am a uni student and didn't want to spend a massive amount of money on an MP3 player. However I also didn't want a totally dodgy no name brand or something with barely any memory. When I saw the price, the 1.5GB sign, and the ...

Price, display, big buttons, easy to use.

Could be smaller, headphones could be better.

Philips Micro Jukebox HDD060


Loved my player when I got it as a present, good sound, sylish look. But using the DMM transfer softaware proved to be a nightmare and then It died on me completely. I managed to get it going again after a disk format and re-install of the firmware! If...

Pretty good sound, looks very nice, good battery life

Philips DMM software poor, java problem means player not recognised. Can crash on you
