Rated 4 out of 5 by Nicky15 Good player with a few rough edges
A good mp3 player in general. I had it in a drawer for 3 years, loaded it per USB and it woorks like before! The only two negatives are a difficult playlist generation (only with software for PC or during a very boring procedure on the player itself) and the not-so-optimal navigation through arge playlists. You have to scroll through all songs if you want a certain one. You can sort by artist but only if the mp3s are tagged properly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by yummyflan Completely Unusable
Seemed like it was going to be easy to use, but multiple errors and lockups make the device unusable. A complete hassle. Will synchronize a few hundred tracks and then lock up. No point in having a 16 GB device if you can't fill it up with music. I have used many different MP3 players and this is the worst.
I'm going to return it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Owenr nice buy but manufacturing is so bad
I just bought it today, it was very impressive when I was at the store. I got shocked when I went home and it doesn't turn on anymore. I checked if maybe there was no more battery but even if I connected it to a pc, it still didn't turn on. I tried connecting the usb cable to my other Philips gogear mp3 at it was working so I guess Ariaz has the problem. Im so disappointed specially that it was a very good buy for its features and price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer This product never did work right.
This product only worked a couple of times and then only after rebooting it several times. I did not have the internet and I had to go to the library to repair it but it still did not work. By the time I called for technal help it was too late to return this item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MAC1986 My favorite music player.
I have purchased a Philips electric razor, DVD player/recorder, and the Ariaz is my second MP-3 player from Philips. The unit, like the other products, has proved quite reliable, and does what I want exceedingly well. I trust Philips quality and esign greatly, and it is now at the top of my manufacturers of electronic equipment, edging out Sony my favored company for many years.
