Expert review by : Shannon Rodricks (

Philips Go Gear SA-1356/97


It's a lighter, it's a Swiss Army knife, no wait, it's an MP3 player!

Stylish looks, Good voice recorder

Bad reproduction of lows and highs, Low transfer speed, Prone to smudges, Battery life, Display never goes off, Sluggish interface
