  • Finally a place to put all of your CDs!

    May 3, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy-to-use, aesthetically pleasing mass storage device
    Cons: You can fit so much on that you sometimes forget what you have on it!

    Summary: When I got my HDD120 I was really happy because I knew I was getting an mp3 player for my birthday but I didn't know which one. I honestly expected to receive one which held around 100 tracks - certainly not 10,000! I would strongly recommend that this ... read more

  • One year On - No Plans to Change It

    Nov 16, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sound, Shape, Reliability, Line-in (direct or voice)20Gb capacity. In-line controls
    Cons: Rubber buds lost - pouch boring Only Available in chrome/black No more being made

    Summary: I will not describe the features as others have fully done so but will give my opinion having purchased it for 130 from Comet in October 05. I have still not put all my music onto it only because I spend too much time listening! I have had no problems ... read more

  • A sleek looking piece of kit, but not without problems.

    Feb 1, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great looks, easy controls, huge storage capacity, good battery life.
    Cons: Flakey software, mediocre sound quality, no accessories.

    Summary: I bought the Philips 20GB HDD simply because I didn't want to be captured by the iPod and wanted to stand out from the crowd. Plus with those gorgeous looks and my previous flawless experiences with Philips, I thought it was the right choice for me, ... read more

  • Probably the worst product I have ever bought

    Jan 30, 2006 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: It looked good and it had a big hard drive
    Cons: Poor software, locks up, lost everything, only x2 fast forward and poor quality of recording

    Summary: While this product MAY be ok for listening to 3 minute tracks, it is useless if you wish to listen to anything longer like lectures, dance mixes, classical or opera because it only has a x2 fast forward facility. So if you want to listen to something ... read more

  • Great looks, poor quality and reliablility

    Sep 14, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Looks good, good price, good capacity
    Cons: HD breaks, wont turn on, battery dies

    Summary: 've had nothing but problems with this mp3 player. In all fairness Philips have been excellent with their customer service. my first one started to not turn on pretty much imediatly, it then took about a month and a half before it would not turn on at ... read more

  • Pretty good product...only a few weakness

    Aug 28, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: 20GB, usually pretty cheap, program pretty easy to navigate, design, button layout.
    Cons: battery life 'died' on me after only about a week.

    Summary: Well, let me just start out saying that I have a cryteria when it comes to rating mp3 players and other electronic stuff. I rate it on a few things...Design, Durability, Battery life, Program, and Sound Quality. Oh yeah, and overall performance. Here ... read more

  • What's everyone's problem with the software?

    May 11, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Styling, high storage space, and user-friendly software.
    Cons: Whiny babies who are doing their best to scare everyone away from it.

    Summary: I wanted something I could use at work, since I don't have access to internet radio sites. I didn't want to have to switch CDs in and out of my computer, so an MP3 player was the only way to go. Now, to get one with enough capacity to play songs for a ... read more

  • Great alternative to the iPod, but do your research on it!

    Mar 15, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Great Looks, good sound quality, able to record
    Cons: Previous research required to avoid bugs.

    Summary: Overall, I'm happy. The first thing you notice is the beautiful looks, the nice smooth, shiny, black surface and curvature really make this look like it cost £500, but really its so much cheaper. The only thing about the surface is that it does attract ... read more

  • Works Fine for Me

    Dec 10, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: price, looks, hard drive plenty big, line-in recording is great, it's not an ipod
    Cons: software is awful but it's an easy fix, unit locks up periodically

    Summary: I read these reviews ad nauseum trying to determine which mp3 player to buy. Read all about the awful software and the hard drive lockups. My criteria were: --- big enough hard drive --- moderate battery life --- good quality recording with line-in ... read more

  • Like a supermodel: Great looks, but dysfunctional!

    Nov 14, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very elegant, with great looks. Voice recording and line-in capability.
    Cons: Poor sound, terrible bundled software, died on me after 4 days.

    Summary: I purchased the HDD-120 primarily because of looks and price. The appearance of it is striking, compared to the toy-like appearance of the iPod. It also has similar features to an iPod, but for far less money. One benefit over an iPod is the voice ... read more

  • Dare to try something other than the IPOD? Try the Philips HDD120

    Sep 26, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review

    Summary: You get it all with this unit. The Philips hdd120 is the best looking Mp3 player out right now. You will totally fall in love with it as soon as you see it for the first time. I was a little skeptical in buying it because of some of the negative reviews ... read more

    Pros: Best looking 20 GB MP3 Player. Excellent build quality. Great sound and easy to use.
    Cons: Software inadequate out of the box but can be remedied.

    Summary: This is my third MP3 device. I brought a Philips KEY005 128 MB MP3 Player h ttp:// _146169433732 and a Philips KEY006 128 MB MP3 Player ... read more

  • Device suffers MAJOR limitations. Get Rio Karma instead.

    May 5, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Gorgeous looks, decent sound, good battery life, mic voice recording
    Cons: Requires awful software, cradle-less, won't play music purchased online, won't transfer music to computer

    Summary: I got this device and was impressed by its specs and its looks. And most of its functionality is good and is covered by other reviews. The problem is, this device is crippled. In an effort to appease the music industry, Philips introduced limitations ... read more

  • A sleek, attractive player that stacks up favorably to Apple's iPod

    May 1, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Attractive design, good battery life, and digital recording capabilities (including voice) at a reasonable price
    Cons: Philips' proprietary "Digital Media Manager" software and minor issues with presentation

    Summary: Prior to the Philips line, if you were going to buy a hard drive-based MP3 player you were generally either looking at a sleek design with an oversized price tag (iPod, iRiver) or a cheaper, if less elegant, device (Zen, Karma). Recently, Philips has ... read more

    Pros: excellent recording capability using line in and mic functions
    Cons: Can take some seconds to boot up. Sometimes gets stuck and needs a reboot.

    Summary: I've had this audio jukebox for 4 years now and have been very happy The ipod doesnt even come close with recording capability. Only problem is that it now seems impossible to get a replacement A5H battery! The A4H is the nearest equivalent but it ... read more

    Pros: Works fine for the first month or so
    Cons: See my is filled with them

    Summary: And that is as far as it goes. I read the reviews and decided that the good ones outweighed the bad ones.......Oh was I wrong. Songs take quite a long time to transfer, then there is the fact you cannot d/l songs onto your computer using the ... read more

    Pros: Excellent user interface, Excellent sound management, looks fantastic, excellent sound quality, cheap.
    Cons: abysmal software, its instinctive wish to break within a year of purchase! KEEP YOUR RECEIPT!

    Summary: This is by far the best alternative to the Ipod. It is superbly easy to use and delivers fantastic sound. You can easily scroll through, playlists whilst flicking back to 'now playing'. This is amazingly cheap for what it is! The downside however is the ... read more

    Pros: Design, Audio, Linein, Price, Accessories, EVERYTHING!!!
    Cons: Software is a bit dodgy, but you can get around this.

    Summary: Fantastic audio quality, design (I love the silver sides), useability (buttons are very good). You can record with the microphone or with the optical line in! Inludes headphones with remote, pouch, cables etc. Move over ... read more

    Rated Show
    Pros: Design
    Cons: Very poor performance. Troubleshooting and major technical deficiencies.

    Summary: I am extremely disappointed by the HDD120 by Philips. After only 3 months, it has major troubleshooting, blocking itself completely for no reasons, and with no way to restart but let the battery dies out. Also the music manager is awful, complicated and ... read more

  • Waste of time and money

    Pros: None
    Cons: Everything else

    Summary: This MP3 player is of a low quality and is not worth buying as after having it for less than a month it broke. The MP3 player is nothing special it has very basic features and is nothing to get excited about. Is it that hard to make a good quality MP3 ... read more
