Rated 4 out of 5 by CDPNYC Great for Sports, Lecture or Book listening, Beautiful Design
Usual beautiful PHILIPS' GoGear design, clear, easy to use great file structure, Well designed armband. Great for jogging, walking, biking.
Alas, it does not seem to play Audible .aa files. The reason I bought it. Philips usually recognizes there is more than music available for GoGear players --- books, lectures, radio downloads, and usually lets .aa files to be played too. I am an avid Audible Books user on my 2 other GoGear 8 gig players.
MP3 is 2nd best re downloadable BBC/NPR mp3 files, MP3 lectures and mp3: non Audible books. I do not listen to music on players but only non music stuff. I have 4 wonderful Philips GoGear 4 gig & 8 gig players, and use them for Audible Books in .aa, or only lectures / BBC/NPR radio downloads, books in MP3. Non Music.
it would have been nice for me to put some Audible .aa files on it like on my other GoGear players.

Excellent sound system but it was not transferring some of my songs and also did not scroll down through the songs very fast.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JustMoi very disappointing
Not very clear. Not that fun. Not very practical. Sometimes just stops reading the songs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by leomojo I am visually impaired so the buttons on the GoGear are a problem for me.
The sound is great but again since I am visully impaired there are some challenges to using the product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by trav123 Great product
This philips mp3 player is very slim in shape small and very compact which makes the product much better for jogging. The sound is very good. The only downfall is that this model only have 2gb of memory which means it only holds up to 450 songs. but other than that this product is very good and is very compact. Great for all types of use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Walter Bad revision
This is a newer version of the old one. This one is awefull. They switched the hard slide lock button with an ealisy-pressed-in-your-pocket button that gets hit all the time. This makes it so at almost any time it'll unlock, change whatever it was you had on, and have to go back. They also took out the voice recorder. Something simple but extremely handy. There was no reason to take it off. If you have the old version, KEEP IT. Had it for 3 weeks, raged, and took it back. I love Phillips stuff. But this one isn't worth the money anymore till they fix it.
