This is a very slick and sexy little player and so high tech with touch sensitive controls that light up with blue leds in response to even the slightest touch.
The sound is fantastic and you’re not restricted to using just Windows media player, I got this synchronizing with Real player with no problems what so ever.
You don’t really need to use the supplied CD-ROM if you don’t want to if running XP, just plug in and go, although the one really useful thing to have from the CD-ROM is the device manager which is handy for firmware updates.
Don’t make the same mistake as I made when I set this thing for auto synch, as soon as it got going started downloading all music files from my PC and was gob smacked at the speed this thing was going while downloading, believe me it’s fast. Set this cute little thing for manual synch and you can’t go wrong.
Forget about the IPOD Nano, leave that to all the lemmings out there. Only two in my book that are now the real Nano beaters, the new Sony and this super sexy and high tech little thing.
So far I’ve yet to find any fault or problems, the Philips HDD1620 is fantastic, gob smacking fast at downloading you’re music, sounds great, not restricted to using just one particular software, just use anything that can synch to portable players. So high tech with the touch sensitive controls would you want to go back to the IPOD click wheel after using this?
