What makes this MP4 player different?
Coloured in a vibrant purple this GoGEAR Vibe MP4 player is compact and stylish. It offers nearly a full day of battery life, which makes it perfect for anyone looking for an extremely portable music or video player. The FullSound technology that Philips have implemented offers sensational sound. This technology enriches and enhances your MP3 music, so you get CD quality music without distortion.

Also added to this MP4 player is the SafeSound feature – which informs you when your volume settings may have an impact on your long-term hearing and helps to automatically regulate it for you. The LikeMusic feature creates smart playlists for you, using a Philips-patented algorithm to identify songs with similar music characteristics to create the list. Just click on a song and hit the LikeMusic icon to get the playlist.

What is the battery like on this MP4 player?
Built-in is a rechargeable battery that provides you with up to 20 hours of music or four hours of video playback on a single charge, so you can enjoy your music for hours on end. What’s more if you forget to charge this MP4 player the night before – you won’t have to wait for it to charge thanks to FastCharge. By plugging the GoGEAR into your computer or USB charger for five minutes, you can get up to 90 minutes of audio playback, so you won’t have a silent journey to the office or on your short run.

How easy is it to use?
An optional folder view setting on this MP4 player lets you view the files on this MP4 player as if they were on your computer screen. This way all you’ll need to do is select a supported file and hit play. This makes it easy to quickly start playing music, watch videos or view pictures. Windows users can install Philips Songbird to discover and play all your media, and then sync it all seamlessly with your Philips GoGear.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fine if you only want to use it for music. I have found this is useless as an mp4 player. If you only want it for music, it's fine, but if you actually want to put videos on it, as you should be able to, it is an absolute waste of time and space. It does not, as the name would suggest, even support mp4, it wants something else, the specs online say smv, yet on the box this isn't even listed as compatible. The software it says you need to install to convert videos doesn't even recognise the player. I'm quite computer savvy yet I've wasted hours trying to put vids on this for my daughter, without success. Unimpressed is an understatement.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It died! Used this player for 3 weeks during which time it performed well & was easy to use. But tried to turn it on yesterday & found that it was completely dead. Tried to charge it even though it should have had charge with no result. Then tried to connect it to the computer only to find that the computer did not even register the fact that it was connected. I have returned this product for a refund.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works fine as a portable Music player Not much use in Linux even with a .thisis a musicplayer file added, I have Sonbird in Virtual Box but its cumbersome and not as good as Rythmbox. But I only put podcasts on once a week and have got it sorted in Rythmbox but the player needs to connect MSC so I can live with this as the player is a nice little unit. Need much better headphones than the ones supplied to reveal the sound quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very impressive. Have had AA battery MP3 players before purchasing Vibe player. I have found it easy to set up and to use. It holds a lot more music than my previous players. Sound quality is good. Battery life is also good, I have used it for over tens hours so far in one go and the battery was not flat. It has proved to be everything I hoped it would be and would recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Basic, but does the job. No frills, basic MP3 player. No artwork. Nothing difficult. Sound is moderate quality given the cost..... Its OK. Not a patch on an iPod, but then its only 20% of the cost.
