Philips GoGear SA6185 (8GB) review: Philips GoGear SA6185 (8GB)

 

The Philips GoGear SA6185 is an affordable, easy-to-use portable video player with a glossy, streamlined design and a modest set of features. With a retail price $159, the Philips GoGear SA6185's low price tag and larger-than-average screen are the...

The Philips GoGear SA6185 is an uncomplicated and inexpensive portable video player with built-in speakers, Windows DRM support, FM radio, a relatively large screen, and voice recording.

The Philips GoGear SA6185 suffers from a dull design, weak built-in speakers, poor video codec support, limited storage capacity, and low screen resolution.

If you're looking for a cheap way to entertain the kids on a road trip to Dullsville, the Philips GoGear SA6185 should work out fine. Grown-ups, however, deserve a more substantive gadget.
