Customer Reviews

If you press them into your ears you get better sounds.
HawaiiArtist
Because of the not so clever control mechanism which can be activated by pressure when it's in your pocket.
Bee Guy
After several rounds of deleting the file and then adding it back, I finally find it.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By S. Lemke on July 12, 2009
I've using it for several months now when I work out. I'm very pleased with it. My wife also has a Phillips MP3 player, different style. I like mine better because it has a lanyard and just pushing the sides of the screen is easier than the smaller control buttons she has on hers. They both sound good.

I noticed lately I have purchased a lot of Phillips products, a small stereo, two matching 47' LCD TV's, and wired headphones for the TVs. I have been pleased with all of the products.

The sound quality isn't too bad. The battery life is okay. The only problems I have had with the player is that it won't shut down correctly, and takes several tries before it goes off. The shuffle function is pretty horrible. I have 500+ songs on it and I hear the same song playing every 10 songs. If you aren't getting a deal on this one, I would advise not buying it.

I use this 2GB GoGear Spark everyday commuting to work. I bought one on sale a few months ago. For me this is the perfect budget player. It hangs around my neck in a lanyard. I like the clear face interface on this MP3 player. You just press on the top, bottom and sides of the screen to navigate the screen. This is great for me because I don't have to look at it to forward, pause or rewind my songs that I'm listening too. I also like that the album art displays on the small screen as well. You can created playlists on the go, and I have one just for my slow jams set up. The shuffle function is good, but I use it so much, I've noticed that there can be a sequence to how the songs of are shuffled. This also has a resume option so that the player can go back to the last song played if you turn off the player.

The Spark is also Audible compatible, so I use it for my audio books that I download from the Audible site. This is a small player w/ only 2GBs of memory, so I only load one book at a time.

This is not a full featured MP3 player. It is a small 2GB player and it will work for you if you just want something small and good to listen to. It's great for listening to on the go or when working out.

Verified Purchase
This is the best mp3 player, for its size. The customer service, at Philips, are also the best at getting issues resolved, quickly; plus they are all super-nice, even when I sounded frustrated. A couple of times this mp3 player shut off for no obvious reason---and each time that I talked to someone, they knew exactly how to resolve these weird, little dilemmas. So now I know how to handle these situations. For all of the information that this mp3 player handles, including the awesome artist's graphics displayed during each song, it's actually surprising that a brief orientation on which buttons to push when it does shut off is all that's required to get on with life---letting in only the sounds that you want while keeping out the ones that you don't:)
Oh yeah, the Rhapsody 'drag-n-drop' software is well-suited to this mp3 player, which also syncs up to all the other tracks that you already have stored---excellent:)

This device seems easier to use than your average Ipod. I use it with the [...] download manager and many times when I try to download my daily Wall Street Journal file, the download manager will say that it has downloaded onto the device. Then, when I turn on the device, it's nowhere to be found. After several rounds of deleting the file and then adding it back, I finally find it. The same thing happens with mp3s. Also, sometimes I'll try to delete files, appear to succeed, and then when I boot up the device......they're still on it!

Purchased from an newish egg site for twenty. This product has more then surpassed my monies worth. Easy to put music files on. Has better FM reception then the sony running receiver my wife had. I have not tried to use any of the multiple other functions that are available. Just use it for running. I would recommend this product for that use.
