Photos: Philips GoGear SA4000 series

The Philips GoGear SA4010 and SA4020 are inexpensive players with a handy, slick design. The GoGear's tiny screen and lack of an FM tuner are big drawbacks, but for the money, the SA4000 series is attractive and simple to use.

The GoGear's rounded design isn't quite as flat as its Nano-sized competition.

We liked the big, tactile controls on the front, but the small two-line display was hard to read.

The GoGear SA4010 has a sturdy design that feels good, and its rounded edges make it comfy to wrap your hand around.

The rubber cover over the USB door is attached surprisingly well.

The GoGear's controls make the most sense when you look at it horizontally, but the player feels best when held vertically.

The AAA battery cover takes up the back of the GoGear and accounts for its thickness. The Menu, volume, and record buttons can be seen here as well.

The sleek, rounded plastic surface is comfortable to hold but prone to glare.
