Advantages Compact, great sound quality
Disadvantages You need a PC
If you have read any of my other reviews, you'll probably have guessed that I like technology - a lot.
So when I noticed people on the train to work listening to music on what appeared to be a slim piece of plastic, I simply had to investigate.
~~ What is in the box ? ~~
The Philips GoGear MP3 player comes with :-
- MP3 player (thankfully)
- plug-in ear phones
- lanyard to carry it around with
- external battery pack
- instruction manual and disc
The player displays the track that is playing which is handy if you want to skip to your favourite tracks.The player recharges via your computer's USB port and takes 4 to 5 hours to fully charge and lasts for up yo 8 hours.
The controls are part of the ear-phone strap and allow you to alter volume, skip tracks, pause the player or turn it off/on.The ear-phones are the sort which you push into your ears and I'm not sure if there are other types available as of yet.
The unit recognizes either MP3 or WMA file types.The MP3 player weighs in at a meagre 35g and is ideal for using when running (the wife) or cycling (me) - there's even a clip to attach it to the neckline of your clothing so that it doesn't bounce around like the rest of my wife if whe forgets her sports bra.
~~ What I like the most ~~
The simplicity of this MP3 player is it's best feature - no need to digest a tree's worth of instruction booklet to find out how to work it.
The light weight design is also a big bonus compared to say, an apple ipod - especially if you plan to use it on the move.
Number 1 may seem fairly obvious but worth mentioning as the obvious things are often overlooked (like our plane tickets last year when we went on holiday).
