Philips Active PSA612 (4GB, blue)


I should say that I've ony had this for a few days now, but so far I've been quite pleased.

Easy to Change Songs, FM Tuner, Built-in Rechargable Battery, Stop Watch, Manage Music Through WMP10, 4GB MP3 Player for $149 at WalMart

A tad ugly - nothing on the iPOD mini, other reviewers indicated that they had problems with the service (I haven't needed to use it, so I can't personally confirm this)

Philips Active PSA612 (4GB, blue)


It's not that good as it's a horrible design and doesn't function to well and the buttons are annoying to press,i'd say in my opinion save up for an ipod nano they look better and work better and music sounds better on them!!!

Philips Active PSA612 (4GB, blue)


I would have given it a ZERO rating if I could, because a product that does not function schould not be reated. I loved it for the TWO weeks it worked, and then for no reason on my part it just locked up. All that Philips did was offer my money back...

Looks great and nice backlight, used to luminate screen

Everything, besides its looks is, Atrocious

For Philips Blue 4GB USB mp3 player


I love this product comes highly recommended.

Own this product before. Only mp3 on market with 4GB's. User friendly.Love the voice timer, very durable. I love this product thats why I decide to purchase it again after my first one was stolen

When it's on your arm tends to bump things and get pretty scatched up. People often mistake it for a heart monitor. Can causes you to sweat on your arm more than usual
