Consumer review (

Philips SA-2326 2GB


The FM transmitter does not work very well. Part of the appeal of the SA2326 was that it came with one.

I found a lack of clear instructions of use. Even with assistance i am still unclear as to how to choose a particular cd or song!

Philips SA-2326 2GB


Very easy to use. Loading music onto the device is quick and simple using drag and drop. Excellent sound quality when attached to external speakers. The shuffle funtion actualy shuffles and doesn't keep repeating the songs in the same order when...

Can't think of any.
