Philips GoGEAR MP3 player SA4RGA02KN Raga 2 GB* with FullSound™ is rated
Rated 2 out of
Good Design And Software However Slow And Unresponsive
I've had this product for a couple of weeks now and it turns out that it just hasn't lived up to my expectations. As I was buying a Philips product, I expected much more than I actually received. The MP3 does have excellent battery life which means long periods of use without the need to charge. Also, it's very easy to use and small and compact, making it very portable to carry around with you on a day to day basis. Even though there are these positives, the negatives of this music device overcome. Firstly, the device is extremely slow and takes a couple of seconds to successfully complete a button press. This can make you very frustrated and tends to waste a lot of time. One feature Philips have totally forgotten to add is a clip/attachment for the user to be able to clip on the device to their clothing. This would defiantly be useful for sports etc. All in all, I think Philips have made a good product with an excellent design, ease of use and mediocre performance. On the other hand, I wouldn't recommend this product due to the poor performance and no clip/attachment.
