Philips SA2820


An object lesson in packaging and ergonomics, but sound lets the Philips down

Small and cute ; nicely finished ; clever interface ; a lot of memory for the size and price

Philips Go Gear Digital Audio Player SA2820


This is a tiny MP3 player that also can make voice recordings. Although it is tiny the screen is still very readable and with battery life of close to twenty hours between recharge it certainly has things in its favour.

Firstly it is small enough to fit in the palm of the smallest hand. It is 4cm wide and tall and only a smidgen over 1cm thick, the weight (before you attach the earbuds) is just 27grams. The top has on/off and back buttons as well as the 3.5mm jack...

Easy to use, great features and generally a great item

The screen does occassionally freeze, although pressing the reset button sorts that

Philips GoGear SA2820 2 GB: Top piece of kit


My friend has one of these and constantly has the piss taken. Despite this it's actually a very good piece of kit. OK might be a bit plasticy and not brilliantly well built, but for the money it's excellent. It will play normal mp3 files and at a high...

cheap, small, simple

Not much memory, slightly plasticy
