Philip's last device that i will willingly own

 

Cheaper than the competition-At the time i got the device it was around £109, the only other hard drive mp3 players were nearer £175. Though this is no longer the case so this advantage is somewhat rebundant ; Dcent display-Simple and clear display...

The Good and Bad

 

I bought this as a refurbished product for $75 shipped.

Price, Price, Price. High quality ear plugs. Radio is very nice.

You have to use POS MusicMatch to load the player. Can't just do drag and drop. Doesn't recharge from USB.
