The Philips GoGear Spark MP3 player reminds us of the iRiver Clix MP3 player. The device is smaller than a matchbox and light enough to hang comfortably round your neck with the included lanyard. The player is also small enough to fit into a pocket,...

Philips is a brand that hasn’t gotten much attention on this site in the past, due to somewhat random product numbering, release schedules, retail outlets and generally a rather weird behavior for a MP3 manufacturer. They have some nice players...

The Spark is a nifty little device which, despite its size, manages to provide great sound. The screen is more than adequate for displaying tracklist and album artwork but, beyond that, it has its limitations. While the Spark is unlikely to win any...

The 4GB Spark has a 1.46in display that also acts as a convenient control. Pressing the side of the screen allows you to change tracks and skip menus at pace. The player also comes with a protective rubber case, which is useful for sporty types, and...

The Philips GoGear Spark is principally let down by an occasionally confusing navigation system. But it is very portable and attractive, and temptingly priced for an MP3 player that includes a colour screen. David Alexander Price...

Philips GoGear Spark MP3 player is smaller than a matchbox and light enough to hang comfortably round your neck with the included lanyard. The clumsy among us will really appreciate the rubber case. As with its predecessor, the GoGear 2GB...

Philips' coolest new product line is the GoGear Spark range of diminutive MP3 players, with or without optional FM tuners. Instead of following the pack into feature-creep territory, the GoGear Spark line keeps it simple. The result is a compact MP3...

Call me fickle or easily bored, but Im looking forward to the day when Im asked to recommend a cheap, no-nonsense, miniscule MP3 player and I cant instantly recommend the Sansa Clip. Frankly, Im tired of saying it. Why cant someone - even...

The Spark is Philips most convincing portable music player for quite some time. The sound is above par for the price bracket, the battery life is excellent and the device itself is easy and pleasant to use. If youre looking for a decent MP3 player...

Ok so there is still the update delay when you turn it on and the screen, although better, isn’t great, but at this price, you get a compact and interesting player, which doesn’t sound too...

The Philips GoGear Spark is great for a budget MP3 player, offering an attractive balance of features, style and usability. It's also one of the first MP3 players in its price range to sport a colour display, and sound quality isn't bad either...

Der SA2920/02 hat den besten Sound im Test. Selbst mit den mitgelieferten, eher billigen Ohrhörern ist er den deutlich teureren Playern von Cowon und Sony eine Nasenlänge voraus. Mit hochwertigen Lauschern offenbart er sein ganzes Potential....

Der MP3-Player Philips GoGear Spark ist der Fiat 500 unter den MP3-Playern. Er ist so klein, dass er problemlos im Kleingeldfach der Geldbörse ein Zuhause findet und weckt sofort den Beschützerinstinkt. Wie sein Vorbild aus der Automobil-Branche...

Der Philips GoGear Spark überrascht uns mit einem tollen Bildschirm, intuitiven Menüs und einem erstaunlichen Durchhaltevermögen - im superkompakten Format. Allerdings ist die Radioqualität eher mittelmäßig, und wir vermissen eine Unterstützung von...
