Rated 5 out of 5 by Onemack Simple to use and versatile
I have cooked many meals in this unit including, chips frozen and fresh, chicken drumsticks,, lamb cutlets, lamb chops, frozen dim sims, spring rolls, chicken breasts, etc, etc,. A little judgement is required as to time and temperature usually based on the recipe book that comes with the unit. Everything has been successful and tasty. I cannot fault this unit

Rated 2 out of 5 by MrGadgetLoverMan Dissapointed with Video Capabilities
The product is of a sturdy and clean build and the user interface is clear and easy but that's about as far as the Pros go. It's slow to respond, temperamental and will not play videos of a dozen different file types. It's a little infuriating and rather disappointing as a media player. As an MP3 Player volume and Equaliser leave a lot to be desired. Screen is also a poor LCD Single touch input resistive one with poor viewing angels. I bought this for my young niece as music player and that's what it will remain. I expect it to be replaced rather soon, which is unfortunate as it is an attractive piece of kit :(

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lachie17 A solid performer
Excellent battery performance and sound quality, touch screen system fluid. Some issues with video compatibilities, would be good to expand accepted file types. Some language hiccups and corruption of punctuation, accents and umlauts etc.

Rated 2 out of 5 by greeny good starting point
much the same as above re tracklisting in alphabetical order, painfull to a fault...also, wont synch tracklists created on pc to device as songs are already on the device, so have to create the whole songlist again, only to have it relist it in alphabetical order again anyway, so only good for listening to songs in random, really...menu navigation is painfull too, as no back button, no stop button on track playback or radio, have to turn off and on again to get rid of radio, and now it wont even synch to my pc, even though it did 10 minutes ago...this device is becoming a really big dissapointment....

I was going to buy this product but after reading reviews i have decided not to due to the alphabetical playing of tracks on an album - sorry but this isn't good enough and is a really poor software desgn decision on Phillips's part.

Rated 3 out of 5 by almail73 Good quality hardware, not so good firmware
I am using this primarily for playing mp3 and the sound quality is very good. However the graphical navigation through the mp3 database could do with improvement in three ways:
a) when selecting tracks by Artist you get a complete list of associated tracks regardless of which album tag they have. Personally I would have expected a list of albums associated with the artist to be displayed first - tracks would then only be shown once the required album was selected. Obviously if the Album tags are missing then these could be shown under unknown album.
b) When selecting tracks by Album they are shown in alphabetical order rather than in the order specified in the Track Number tag. I would recommend that it reverts to alphabetical display only if the Track Number tags are missing or invalid.
c) When finished with playing a track or group of tracks there is no 'Back' button icon to go back to the previously selected artist or album. Instead you have to press the library icon which puts you back to the very top of the artist, album or track list. It's not a show stopper but it does mean that you can end up doing lots of down-scrolling each time you want to change artist or album - especially if lots of your favourite bands start with "The..."
I would be most grateful if you could look into these when producing a firmware update - these issues are stopping me from recommending to others.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Graeme77 A very clever piece of equipment. Wish I was clever enough to use it fully.
This is my first attempt to use an mp3 type of player. I am having difficulty learning how to work out all of its possible features. When I do I'm sure it will bring me hours of pleasure. It has great potential.
