Nice mp3 with great sound and interface
First off, I have no idea why any manufacturer would make an mp3 player that only has 2 gigs in it. That ship has sailed. 4GB is a minimum nowadays, with 8GB becoming the norm. Whatever product manager thought that was a good idea should probably move on, and out of the technology realm...
For sake of a fair evaluation, I'll be comparing this Philips Raga to my mp3 player of choice, the SanDisk Sansa Fuze .

After making appeals to moms and tech neophytes everywhere with its ultra-simplistic SlotMusic and SlotRadio players, SanDisk returns to the land of real, full-featured MP3 players with the Sansa Clip+. Like its popular predecessor, the Sansa Clip, the Clip+ runs against the iPod Shuffles of the world with a compact and clippable (duh) profile, but makes an extra play toward practicality with the addition of a microSD slot that allows for expansion by up to 16GB.
Best low-end mp3 player
It's the best low-end mp3 player on the market, without question. And did I mention it costs $50 for 4GB? That's $20 less than the iPod shuffle and the Clip+ has the shuffle handily beat on features and sound quality. I recommend the 4GB version - it's worth the $10 upgrade from 2GB, and 8GB is really more music than the little guy is built to handle. The UI's a little dated, but it's totally serviceable, and the player's strengths more than make up for its drawbacks.
