Philips GoGear SA6025

 

Philips' additions to the PMP market are quite worthy of attention. The company employs sleek designs, large clear interfaces, and navigation menus that are a breeze to use. But sadly there's always something missing that could have made their devices...

Battery Finally the battery. The SA6250 uses a 800mAh. Li-Polymer battery which is really good. It dishes out a good 14-plus hours of music and at least 3 hours and 40 minutes of video. That’s around a full movie and a little more than half of the...

Philips GoGear SA6025 (2GB)

 

As MP3 players go, the GoGear 6045 is neither cheap nor terribly compact, but it's not expensive and huge, either. The 4GB player goes for about $140 (by contrast, the 4GB Creative Zen V Plus is $110) and measures 3.6x2.1x0.5 inches. The relatively...

The Philips GoGear SA6000 offers a user-friendly design, an ample screen, and dedicated volume controls. It includes desirable features such as an FM tuner and photo and video support. The player is compatible with subscription services, and it has a...

The control pad on the GoGear SA6000 feels cheaply built, and there's no album-art support. The unit is large for a flash player, and some music comes across flat while some bass-heavy tracks are slightly distorted

The Philips GoGear SA6545 is a feature-filled MP3 player that will suit those looking for good video playback over a compact form factor.

The Philips GoGear SA6025 is a decent flash based media player for those looking for something simple and competent.

How well does Philips do music and video?

The Philips GoGear SA6025 is great if you're willing to regularly swap and change the files contained on it. However, for the asking price we feel it's a little expensive for what's on offer.

Big is the new small for the Philip's latest MP3 player

Very cheap ; Large screen

Too much wasted space ; A shameless iPod rip-off

Philips' latest video player is black and shiny with a tempting price tag, but lacks the basic talents needed to take on its contemporaries

Nice to hold. Easy to use. Plenty of versatility for the money. Good software.

At best, sounds lifeless and abrasive. Video playback is queasy. Memory fills up fast.

Good value and smartly designed, the SA6025 sadly falls down on audio and video performance

Philips GoGear SA6025 review

 

Whether you choose this model, the 1GB Philips SA6015 or 4GB Philips SA6045, you'll get an affordable and pleasantly designed player. Commuters will appreciate the low cost and video support, but the slow menus will grate as time goes on

Pleasant design ; Simple menus ; FM radio ; Voice recorder ; Decent audio quality

Sluggish controls ; Odd navigational style ; Battery life could be better

If you're after a simple player, consider Creative's Zen Stone, a bargain at little more than £25. Or if you definitely want a screen but don't mind paying a little more, consider the iRiver X20 at around £99. It may cost a few pints of beer more, but...

An odd one, this. It's nearly full iPod-sized, despite being a mere 2-4GB. A lot of folk will find it less appealing than all the other flash-based players, wanting something they can carry without noticing.

Very cheap, Large screen

Too much wasted space, A shameless iPod rip-off

It's not the worst player around but it needs better buttons and less girth

one of the best on the market

 

My mom just bought this for me yesterday for my birthday. They do also sell it as an 8gb at walmart for $99. The playback quality is amazing. My cell phone has an mp3 player on it, but this easily surpasses it. While it may weight a pound or two, ......

great screen

weights one to two pounds
