Philips GoGEAR Portable video player SA5245 4 GB High-definition headphones with FullSound™ and SuperScroll™ is rated
Rated 2 out of
Worked OK for a while, then developed an annoying fault outside warrantly.
It did what I expected it to do, then developed a fault where the sound became distorted. This happened after a minute or so playing, then cleared if left long enough, then came back every time a control was operated. Really annoying!
It was out of warranty so I emailed the symptoms to Philips via the support contact and never received a reply.
In summary - if the SA5245 works as it is supposed to it's a reasonable device. If it develops a fault you get no help from Philips and end up throwing it away and buying something more reliable.
