Philips GoGear SA3225/02 2GB

 

Philips' GoGear SA3225/02 plays both music and videos but, as a whole, is Jon impressed?

For a budget player, the SA3225/02 looks nice. Its polished steel rear is a world away from the plasticky i.Beat Motion, and the thick gloss-black front is luxurious indeed, though it does pick up fingerprints like a forensic scientist at a murder...

Philips GoGear SA3225 2 GB review

 

Over the next 50 â'¬ Philips is courageously trying to Buck, the inclination, but it has enough to meet the additional costs? The first thing to note is that this is not just a music player that also plays video SA3225/02. He has a 1.8in, 220 x 176...

Philips GoGear SA3285

 

I had bought this product back in 2008 and got it at a pretty good deal at that time. If you're looking for an MP3 player with decent storage space, good battery life and quality sound, then Philips GoGear should be your choice. It comes in a 8 GB...

Philips GoGear SA3285 8 GB: Bring Simplicity Into Life

 

The Philips SA3285 is probably what defies a minimalist's idea for a MP3 player. Its stylish Zen appearance gives the player an elegant finish. Upon using the supplied headphones it produce a reasonable sound quality with sharp and clear sounds, which...

Sensitive buttons, user friendly

Sound quality is only average, quality of pictures and videos are quite poor
