MP3 player is great - let down by Songbird
I was looking for a simple MP3 player for on the move. The Vibe is lovely and compact, very easy to use once all the music has been stored and has the added benefits of playlists, pictures and videos which is not always available with other such MP3 players. The sound quality is great and I have absolutely no complaints regarding the MP3 player itself. The only issue, which really lets down the whole product was the Philips Songbird - which is so clunky and slow! especially compared to other programs used by competitors. The Songbird WILL do what is is meant to but it is quite slow and doesn't like to multitask! E.g. I have learned not to try and change a song on my playlist whilst adding music to the MP3; it just crashes!
I will continue to use the product because of the quality of the Go-Gear Vibe is fantastic! But the Songbird really needs to be updated!
