Philips Recording Audio Jukebox HDD120

Limited codec support. Separate buttons and screen animations can slow navigation. File management/transfer software is substandard.

Pretty and functional, with the best standard ear buds on any digital audio player, the HDD120 could use better ergonomics and better file software.

I will not describe the features as others have fully done so but will give my opinion having purchased it for 130 from Comet in October 05. I have still not put all my music onto it only because I spend too much time listening! I have had no problems ...

When I got my HDD120 I was really happy because I knew I was getting an mp3 player for my birthday but I didn't know which one. I honestly expected to receive one which held around 100 tracks - certainly not 10,000! I would strongly recommend that this...
