I have been using this little mp3 player now for a while and I feel I can give it an accurate assessment. I'm going to compare it with the ever popular Ipod Nano just in case you find yourself like I did, stuck between two heavyweight champs.

-Appearance: I found myself taken right away with the gogear. It's about the same height of the nano but definitely thicker. The entire player is a reflective midnight black with silver plating on the sides. It fits nicely in the hand and looks stunning. It shows fingerprints, but those wipe away easily. It doesn't seem to scratch too easily, unlike its opponent which scratches at the lightest of touches. I knew someone that kept his nano in a cloth case and it still found a way to show scratches. Albeit, the Ipod nano is incredibly small and aesthetically pleasing, but the darn thing just can't take its punches. The screen is prone to cracking and I've never seen an Ipod nano that didn't have a million battle scars on it. Which one you like better is a personal choice, but in my books, this round goes to the GoGear if only because it doesn't scratch so easily.

-Functionality, Playback and Features: Let me start by saying duh! Who would buy an mp3 player that only has a capacity of 2gb when they could get a different one at the same price that has 6gb of storage. I call this a nobrainer but whatever floats your boat. You could shell out an extra 50 to get the superior nano, but it still falls short of the GoGear by 2gb. The GoGear is extremely straightforward in its design. My computer had no trouble detecting it. I quickly and easily synched my music library to the GoGear using Windows Media Player. The main menu has 5 options to chose from: music, radio, pictures, recordings and settings. Everything is pretty easy to find.

I bought this player back in January, at the last minute choosing the Philips over the Zen Micro I'd had my eye on for a while. The Philips player looks better, and most of the reviews I had read were positive. The player worked well enough for a while: I had no problem loading songs onto it and the sound was good enough for my purposes. The buttons are a little touchy, and so navigating was sometimes a little frustrating, but that was only ever a minor annoyance. Then, two days ago, the player froze up on me. It had done this before, and I reset it as I had done in the past, but when it powered up again, it was giving me an error message, telling me to connect it to my PC. When I got home I connected it, but neither the device manager nor WMP would recognize the device, so I wasn't able to repair it. I also noticed a soft clicking sound coming from the device as it was starting up--kind of like a small harddrive trying to spin up and failing. I did a bunch of uninstalling and reinstalling, just to be sure, but at this point I'm pretty sure that I'm dealing with a hardware problem.

The real problem, however, is that I can't seem to get Philips to recognize this. I called them once, waiting on hold for over 20 minutes, and tried to explain the problem, but I was told to reinstall the device manager from the website. When this didn't work, I tried using the online chat function on the support site, hoping to avoid long hold times, but apparently hold times at Philips are not to be avoided. So I tried emailing them, explaining what I'd done to fix the problem and why I think the unit needs to be repaired or exchanged, only to receive a reply saying, "Your concern with the unit needs further technical assistance" (my concern needs further assistance...?

I have no idea why some other reviewers don't like this player. I've had no problems at all.... so here's my complete review.

I've done a lot of research while searching for my next Digital Audio Player. I had a Creative Muvo 256 mb player (my first DAP) which I was looking to upgrade because I wanted A LOT more space. When searching for a new one I knew I wanted these features: Color screen, at least 5 GB of space, FM, jpeg display, album art display, and voice recording capabilities. Looks were at the bottom of my list, but I admit, this is a great looking player.

I knew the ipods were going to be WAY out of my price range and they don't have all the features I wanted anyway. Originally, I ran into what I thought was a deal on a $95 5GB DAP, the japanese NHJ VHD-5100. That was the crappiest player to ever exist. It locked up on me literally hours after taking it out of the box so I returned it. (Do NOT buy that one if you happen to find it somewhere). You get what you pay for, so my search began for better one.

I decided on the Philips GoGear HDD1630 because it had all the features I wanted so I decided to fork out the extra $80 bucks after returning the VHD-5100. MONEY WELL SPENT.

- Plenty of space for my music (currently have about 800 songs with lots of room to spare)
- Looks sleek, I like the black color, has the neat blue touch-sensitive lighted controls
- The sound is MUCH better than my Creative Muvo
- I LOVE the headphones supplied with the player.
