"Seemed great till it crashed and died just post warranty"1.5 starson by dehalla
Pros: Small...not an apple
Cons: Stopped working after 5 months of light use, difficult to use, small screen
Summary: I would have given this player an 8 if it hadn't stopped working after five months of fairly infrequent use. Tech support was responsive...but not helpful.
I have not tried Apple MP3 players but Creative and Rio players both seem to be overly complicated for my non-tech savy girlfriend (who was the recipient). I often heard her cursing if she was ever in a hurry to load stuff to go on a run.
Incidentially, I got a Creative Zen after this...it stopped working in two days. Bummer. I'm now willing to join the Apple music monopoly.
