Philips GoGEAR MP3 Player - Could Be Much Better
This is 4GB MP3 player is ok for the money, but it could have been much better if it had an FM radio, and a Sleep Timer.
The pre-set volume feature is ok, but it could have been set a bit louder, because if you are outside in everyday noise such as traffic, then you will have to turn up the volume manually. The feature to unlock the pre-set volume then turn it up is a bit time-consuming, so overall, I guess the pre-set volume and unlock pre-set volume should be removed so that one can set the volume manually from "0". The overall maximum volume could be a bit louder too, by around 2-4%.
The other thing that lets this MP3 player down is that it does not have a "Sleep Timer", where one can set a time for the player to turn itself off automatically, e.g.: 30, 60, and 120 minutes, then Sleep Off.
I was very surprised to find that a white MP3 player had black headphones; this is a serious product marketing error. White headphones with a volume-slider would be the way to go for the next 4GB MP3 player in this range.
All-in-all it's a good MP3 player, but to compete with another well known brand beginning with "S" for a 4GB MP3 player that has an FM Radio, white headphones with volume control, a Sleep Timer, and an FM radio should be installed in the next 4GB MP3 player that Philips decide to design/market.

Easy to use!
Small, unobtrusive, easy to use, yet still good for those with a fuller finger. Holds a good number of symphonies so it is not just for those who like songs! No cables to carry around: other than headphones. Now all I have to do is find a gym that does not insist on pumping out loud noises that seem to be aimed at the terminally tone deaf!
