"Great mp3 player for the price but a few quirks"4.5 stars
Pros: Great interface, amazing form factor, slick look, colors, Its size considering it comes in up to 16 gbs, batterylife, accelerometer.
Cons: Accelerometer, itunes can bug out sometimes. curved screen.
Summary: I am continually impressed by this device. It feels very sturdy in my hands, has up to 16 gbs of memory. It has good sound quality (i suggest equalizer off or bass reduce, v-moda vibes, and apple lossless format for best quality and a budget). However the curved screen can induce minor reflections, but you barely notice them unless in direct sunlight. I also liked that they got rid of the chrome and the plastic screen that scratched easily. I have no accessories that used firewire charging so I am at no loss their. I would say that the accelerometer is both its best and worse at time feature. It is very unique about the player. However when your running at the gym the shake to shuffle feature can cause issues. (you can turn it off tho). Also the batterylife is great (gets 24 hours of batterlife) considering it is a about 28% thinner at its thickest point.
