"A fairly nice player, but with some serious problems"2.5 starson by Malafus
Pros: Intuitive interface, good battery life.
Cons: A quite serious design flaw.
Summary: The Micro is indeed a fine player, the touchpad is a little sensitive, but other than that, the interface is fine. The included software is also quite user-friendly. Included earphones are excellent quality (as far as bundled earphones go).
There are a couple problems, however...
1) The battery seems not to hold charge when charged via USB... when charged by mains power this problem does not occur.
2) Far more seriously, the headphone jack on the player is a weak point on the player. 3 seperate Micros owned by some friends of mine have had their headphone jacks fail, and my own is heading that way. After about 1-2 months of use, the headphone jack seemed to become loose, and if the jack is nudged then sometimes 'crackling' occurs. It appears that the headphone jack is not soldered onto the mainboard of the player very securely - and having happened to 4 seperate players, I can only assume this is an inherent flaw in the design.
