Excellent basic MP3 player for rec. use
bought this mp3 player for listening to music during exercise. It's absolutely wonderful, and easy to figure out. I have no problem using the Music Go software with it, as I don't care about Media Player or any of that. I import my own CDs and send them to the mp3 player, and create playlists. The earbuds, I dismissed without trying, and used my own headset for a couple of days. But, the earbuds were nice for listening to music in bed, and I realized they are better than my headphones!
Affordable, versatile and compact MP3 player
All things considered this is a good deal for a low end MP3 player. For the price it's difficult to go wrong with this device. Is it perfect? No. Could there be improvements? Absolutely. As I mentioned earlier, my biggest disappointment was the lack of the audio recorder. I'm guessing this probably won't be an issue for most people however. Other than that I'm very satisfied with the Philips GoGear Vibe. Satisfied enough to consider purchasing the 16GB GoGear Muse.
This mp3 player has an input jack, which is rare, and very handy. Plays well, has external speaker, which is also hard to find. Music saved to internal memory plays back nicely. The only drawback so far is that it is very slow if you try to play from a micro SD card. I have tried several class 10 micro sd cards with the same extremely slow result. I've decided not to bother with the micro sd card and just put my most important music on the internal memory.
Poor build quality
The MP870 is priced at Rs. 4,150 (MRP) for the 4GB version and Rs. 4,850 (MRP) for the 8GB version. For that money, the only decent feature it provides is music playback. There are a few other options with similar features that might appeal to potential buyers like the Philips GoGear Spark priced at Rs. 2,697, and the Creative M300 priced at Rs. 3,499 with Bluetooth as an added feature. A mobile phone could be another alternative for those who want added functionality along with music.
a very rugged finish and a great choice for an on-the-go device.
Having used nearly every player on the market over the last few years, I cannot help but feel like my hands are tied when using the Zune. I feel limited by the single piece of software that must be used. I want choice. I want to be able to play all my media, or at least the supplied software should allow me convert it. The Zune is a really nice piece of hardware, but it lacks flexibility and choice.
