      Disadvantages

      Buy this and a good set of earphones and you will not be disappointed.

      Having had an array of MP3 players and a couple of Ipods, all of which I have lost or broken, I was delighted when a friend bought me the stunning bright pink Philips GoGear for my birthday. Looks wise it was perfect but would it be up to anything as a player?

      Well after about three weeks now of continuous usage I can tell you that it is pretty decent but with little faults. The biggest of those little faults is the earphones that come with it, they are a bit tinny sounding and not really loud enough for the player. I have a good pair of Sony in ear earphones which I bought a while ago and the sound quality is infinitely better with these.

      The functions on this little player are pretty basic but for me they are all you need. You can play, pause, skip and shuffle the tracks and what else do you need? The buttons might be a little fiddly for those with larger fingers but for me they were just fine.

      The loading of music to the player just could not be easier, plug and play facility allows you to simply plug this into your PC or laptop then drag files on to it. It also charges from the PC or laptop USB connection so again very simple.

      You get around 10 hours playback time with this player and it has a built in radio if that's your thing as well as a handy clip sort of Ipod shuffle style to clip this to your clothing, ideal for the gym or jogging or the likes.

      The player has a brushed steel body which again is sort of Ipod shuffle style, it looks stunning and would be fairly difficult to break I think.

      The one I have is the 2GB version but I believe they do a 4GB as well. As I say I got this as a gift so am not sure exactly what it cost but after a little look around it seems depending where you buy you can pick one of these up for between £27 and £41 so shop around.

      I would definitely recommend this little player to anyone looking for something just all together more simple than the Ipod but it really does need a better set of earphones.
