Philips Go Gear Muse,
This review is from: Philips GoGear MP4 player SA2MUS32S/02 Muse 32GB - Silver (Electronics)
I liked the look of the MP4 player from the Amazon website and had bought Philips products in the past with good results. I have a wide music genre so a 32GB player was essential as I like to carry my collection with me. I wasn't disappointed with the overall style and look of the Philips Muse the satin alloy finish gives the player good grip and the outside controls are easy to read and use. It took about an hour and a half to fully charge the Muse ready for music input, from the moment you switch the player on the on screen instructions allow you to set the date and time and the background design. Once connected to the computer you have no problem as the USB instantly recognises the device and sets the player up for you. I did have a problem however with 'Songbird' the Muse's own music/video capture software but I went online to Philips and downloaded the latest software from there. Drag and drop is the best way to load you device and it's quick too, I filled my Muse with 8450 songs in about 2 hours, that included finding the album artwork before downloading the songs. The best thing about the Muse as a player is the sound quality. The system is loaded with a 'Full Sound' system that creates a mini concert in your head. It is exceptional and the best I've heard on what is a mid range player. The fact you download programs from BBC iPlayer is an added bonus which make the Philips Muse a worth while buy.
The screen is easy to use and does exactly what you expect it to do unlike other units which instead of changing the track will alter the volume. Overall the Philips Muse is a nice bit of kit.
