Rated 5 out of 5 by carboss This is the VERY BEST MP3 player I own
The Philips GoGEAR VIBE with *GB holds more music than you can play in day. Perhaps the device is the best on the market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JLC420 Nice little player
Nice little unit for playing video and audio. Outstanding display quality compared to 2 other brands I have. Sound is much more rich. A little smaller screen and no camera and no mic than my other 2.
I take one star away from ease of use since you have to hold the on/off button while it counts down to shut off and to turn it on. Also if you just tap the button for even 2 sec it puts it into lock. Not a big problem just a little annoying to have to watch it shut off.
I was given this unit used from a friend. I just recently bought another brand because of other features I wanted but it doesn't have date and time like the Philips. One of my gripes though is more with the software though, Songbird. I don't like songbird but seems to be the only thing that puts the right specs to video then transfers. Other converters seem to lack support for not MP4 but the other aspects of the video format.
Sound quality is outstanding. Crisp and clear not to mentions a few sound options. The earphone's like all that come with things, are poorly made. No offense to Philips at all.
Anyway I see nothing majorly wrong with this unit in functionality even after all the terrible reviews I have read. I have had various products by Philips and have never been disappointed.
Recommend this unit? Yes.
Final note(s) Sure the earphones are always lousy regardless brand but there are decent ones for a few dollar's is you just try others. Philips has a few styles for just pennies (so to speak). Expensive does not mean better. I use cheap earphones so if they break I'm not out more than a few dollars.
Don't be swayed by reviews for your own experience is what matters.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Krys Would not charge or turn on without being connected
it would not charge or turn on except when connected to usb to pc. When disconnected would not turn back on. Would not reset or ever charge. Not good quality built in battery that you cannot replace. When battery dies the player is too...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer This product works well.
My only issue, which is a personal one, was the ear pieces were not comfortable at all. I had to go buy something different. They would fall out or not fit well at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by shannon74 sound is great, not so easy to use, troble deleting names of songs
overall I really like it however it could be easier to find the functions and set the clock and delete things.
