Customer reviews and ratings

Philips SA4VBE08VN/12 GoGear VIBE 8GB MP3/MP4 Player -Purple 4 5 121 129
not as good as the raga but still good sound quality is good even with the headphones provided but the volume protection that you cant turn off on bugs you every time you try to turn it up over 12 as you have to click on yes to do battery life lasts about 16-18 hours it takes about an hour per 100 songs to add to the GoGear from the songbird software but its quicker from windows media player 31 March 2015
Love it! Great for spoken word audio. I wanted this player to listen to spoken word recordings rather than music. This player fits the bill just right - as I can transfer folders from my pc and the player recognises them and their contents without the need for downloading specific software. It also means that I just get the tracks I want on the player - rather than loads of unwanted ones that are synced behind the scenes. I was hearing some buzzing to begin with - but I turned off one of the audio settings and that did the trick. 17 March 2015
Good Machine, Terrible Software I like the MP4 player, but Songbird is a nightmare! Apparently Philips stopped developing it in 2013 so none of the links to it work anymore. When I eventually did manage to download it, half of the features don't work anymore. I had to manually enter all of the info (Artist, Album name, Song Title etc.) from the CDs I ripped until I gave up. It's a shame, but this has really put me off the whole lot... 28 February 2015
Died after about 4 weeks I don't normally write these reviews but a reminder popped up from Argos today and ironically the product died this morning, about a month after my purchasing it. I'll be taking it back tomorrow and won't be replacing it with the same model. This has been a waste of time and money for me. The ratings that I've given seem contradictory but the truth is for the four weeks that it worked I was pleased with the product. The one star reflects my mood right now I guess. 03 February 2015
Surprisingly good Was looking for a FLAC-format music player, didn't find one, gave up and bought this instead. Surprisingly, it does support FLAC files, after all, although it isn't mentioned anywhere. Negatives: ? GUI's a bit weak, I needed to edit the file properties to get them to show properly and play in the right order (essential for audiobooks). ? Doesn't like users turning the volume up, annoyingly asks confirmation every time. Positives: ? Everything else. It's a good bit of kit and I'm happy. :) 19 March 2015

Hi,

I have checked the instructional manual for you and the Philips GoGear VIBE 8gb MP3/MP4 Player ? Black uses Philips Songbird.

Is the player compatible with DRM WMA/secure WMA?

3 months, 1 week ago
Can you advise whether the player is compatible with the WMA DRM protected/WMA secure file format that many audiobooks borrowed from public libraries via OverDrive and OneClickDigital use? Could you also confirm whether the player is compatible with Audible audiobooks?
