Like most Philips MP3 players (we'll make an exception for the Spark), the Vibe is a case study in nondescript design. It's about as thick as an Oreo cookie (0.25 inch), with a 1.5-inch width and 2.5 inch height that can easily be palmed in your hand or slipped in your pocket.

The bottom of the Vibe is riddled with openings for a mini USB connection, 3.5mm headphone jack, lanyard loop (lanyard not included), and a pinhole microphone for the voice recorder.

The right side of the Vibe includes a menu option button and a volume rocker switch that's just big enough to be useful.

The back of the GoGear Vibe is shiny enough to view your reflection (and your fingerprints).

On the Vibe's left side you'll find a power switch that doubles as a button hold.

At around $50, you're lucky to have a 1.5-inch screen capable of photos, videos, and album artwork.
