Once again portability and size take centerstage for DAPs. Philips has always had small DAPs and PMPs in its GoGear range, and the SA2825 is no different. But as we all know size isn't everythin

The MP3 player looks like a shinny gemstone and brings along Philips patented FullSound Technology.

Good Looks, Small, Recording, FM Tuner, Battery Life

Earphones need upgrade, Bit Expensive

Small and Powerful Unit.

 

Supplied headphones are alright for using the unit right out of the box, make sure you have, or pickup, some better ones.

Great sound quality, very small size. No need for any special software, connects like an external HDD; drag and drop. Had the unit for over a week and the battery charge is still going. FM radio uses your headphones as an antenna and auto tuning is...

Latest firmware upgrade broke the main menu navigation for me. Had to downgrade the firmware back to stock. Had some minor glitches with recognizing some mp3 files (turning the unit off and back on again solves it)

Sweet

 

Bought this as a simple player for my wife. Really surprised by how nice it is. I got an amazing price a week ago, with free shipping, so I thought I'd take a chance -- not any reviews at the time. I'd get another (or 2) at that deal. I could see...

Cheap. Small. Good sound. Good interface

Only 2G. No video

Does audio books

 

If you listen to lots of audio books because of a long commute, this is the device to get. I can't speak for the music quality, as I have 4 other mp3 players (Creative MuVo TXFM (1GB), Creative MuVo 100 (1GB), and 2 1GB Creative Zen Stones) that I use...

Puts the Philips driver software in the systray for easy reference. This puppy took 13 CDs from an audio book that I ripped, and there was still at least 56 percent unused space!! Plays well and comes with great documentation. It has an informative...

Beautiful Little Gem

 

Bought 5 of these little dudes. One for me, and 4 for the kids/grandkids for Christmas presents. It feels well constructed. Haven't dropped it or anything, but we'll see how they handle them after Christmas. Super fast shipping from Newegg as always!...

Nice and compact. Outstanding Sound Quality. Folder Options. Equalizer. Just an outstanding little MP3 player. Just what I was looking for to replace an iPod Nano that decided to stop working. Much better sound quality to me

None so far
