To sum it up, the whole experience was bittersweet. Though Id like to say more bitter than sweet. The screen as mentioned earlier was THE biggest issue. The rest of the features worked out fine but the player is meant to provide a good experience...

Philips' GoGear Muse looks and feels classier than older models thanks to its brushed metal back. The right-handed design is unchanged, which will put off left-handed users. It's one of the few players we've seen with built-in noise...
