Pros

Radio connectivity is a major selling point - allows users to listen to local stations without having to resort to a larger, dedicated mobile tuner

2 agree

Small, ultra-compact form factor is ideal for biking and exercise applications - unit is very lightweight and largely unnoticeable while moving

1 agrees

Sound quality is surprisingly good considering the price point - frequencies are clear and well-balanced with exceptional bass response

1 agrees

Functions as a worthwhile competitor to the iPod Shuffle - radio capabilities and sub-$50 price are excellent attractors

Cons

Clip-on attachment is somewhat unreliable - component may loosen over time, eventually becoming unusable

2 agree

In-line hard buttons are very small and difficult to adjust - not conducive to track/volume adjustment while the user is walking or exercising

1 agrees

Unit is only capable of playing back MP3 audio content - may force some users to convert some or all of their existing music library contents

The Philips GoGear MP3 Player represents two 2GB MP3 players, including the black SA018102K/37 and silver SA018102S/37. Both units offer WMA and MP3 playback in addition to an integrated FM tuner with five station presets. More importantly, they realize on Philips’ proprietary FullSound technology to restore compressed MP3/WMA music into its most natural form, thereby allowing for greater depth, bass, and frequency extensions than is typical for a conventional MP3 player. Included also is a shuffle functionality that randomly plays music, a built-in clip for wearing the device as a fashion accessory, and a USB interface for charging and drag-n-drop file transfers.
