Philips GoGear SA3125


Media players these days, come in all shapes and sizes with features coming out the wazoo. Although we could say that players like the Zunes or iPods of this world are at the top, let's be realistic, not everyone can afford those can they? So what's...

And of course the main feature is the music player but it has no features that make it any more attractive than the SA1355 . The SA1355, that doesn’t even have a color display and is half the size, actually has a few features that are lacking in this...

Good investment


I bought this as a gift to my boyfriend, at first he was a little upset by the size, but once he started using it he loved it. He uses it at the gym and the one thing he likes the best he does not have to worry about buying batteries.

Sound quality and video quality is excellent. Once you get familiar with everything easy to use.

A little smaller than I thought it would be, but a good size. No real instruction manual, hard to understand how to download videos, but once you get the hang of it easy to use. The headphones are not comfortable.

SA3125/37 MP3 2GB Video Player with FM radio


My third MP3 player (has SanDisk and iPod) and this is my favorite so far! I haven't used the video feature, so I cannot comment on that, but I bought it for audio use and it's working out very well.

Intuitive menus, easy to read display, easy to navigate buttons, plenty of memory

shows fingerprints, oddly shaped & uncomfortable ear buds

SA3125/37 MP3 2GB Video Player with FM radio


Awesome audio and very easy to use. The flow of the dials and the use of symbols to indicate different functions to choose are so simple that you can learn to use the player without directions.

I did not like the 5 hours charge time prior to using the mp3 player but once charged it was worth the wait!

Nice try but a miss


For fm radio, mp3 playing, etc it's nice. However, there are a lot of other mp3 players that do that even better for the same price or cheaper. I like it, or want to like it. It's just that whole SMV & BMP only issue that is the deal killer.

It's inexpensive. That's the big plus. The fm radio works really well and the presets are easy to set. MP3 transfers are pretty straightforward and easy to do.

It's really limited as to what it does. It only displays BMP files on the image browser and only plays slideshows. So out of luck if you want to use it like a really small picture frame. The really big pain is the video player. Since it uses a...

Highly recommended for the price

Easy to use, very clear sound, Good reception from FM radio. Easy to download music

Earphones are not designed very well, They get worn very fast, will not stay in your ears.
