GoGear Ariaz - dont buyNO MANUAL VOLUME!!

 

If I wanted to be nagged about how loud i should have my music, i would find the nearest time machine and go back to being a teenager. But to the Philips Engineers/Desiners, I am an adult, and I am perfectly capable of knowing how loud i want my music....

NO MANUAL VOLUME CONTROL. Probably the most basic function any music player needs, and it doesnt have it!!
