Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed54 Not fit for purpose
This player cannot play album tracks in track order, only in alphabetical order (?!?). Most albums are intended to be listened to in track order and this is the way I like to listen to music. Sure, occasionally I will play in "shuffle" mode when I don't mind what song or artist comes next, but in most cases I want to hear songs in the order that the artist or composer wants you to hear them. The fact that this player cannot manage this simple feat is amazing and renders the unit completely unfit for purpose.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Marty More Info
Simply there is just not enough info in the instructions on how to use it. There is only a quick guide which seems to leave out a lot of info. You simply have to experiment with the use of it to learn how to use it.
Also there is no mention of how to switch off the radio. If you have the radio on then go to another function the radio will still be on.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dhillon Complicated software
Been trying to understand how to make playlist for the last 2 days and i have not been sucessful. I used both the philip software and even the windows media player. I am able to get songs in but till now i have not been able to make playlists. I can somehow see all playlists on my computer after having spent hours making them but when i check the player...no playlist. This is one of the most complicated software i have come across. Should have stick to my earlier player.

Rated 2 out of 5 by George Volume adjustment is poor
I gave this player an exxcelent for ease of use & design is great the performance I gave is low, When the player is connected to external speakers of which I have tried different types the volume is very poor. I have various MP3 & MP4 which when connected to speakers have excellent volume range, the Phillips is very disappointing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Notimpressed Reasonable
The incomprehensible user interface means that most of the functions are unavailable to me. It plays MP3's and that's about all. File management I have to do on my computer. The random play mode is nowhere near random, and plays the same sequence over and over again.
