"even better than i'd hoped"4.5 starson by palmcrash
Pros: beautiful screen, very customizable, simple usage, excellent sound, syncs with multiple music players
Cons: wish a 16GB or higher version was available
Summary: It's thinner than I had expected, and when you turn it on, all you can say is "wow" at the beautiful screen. The flush "D click" interface is not only sleek, but very intuitive. You can also use the player in any 90 degree angle (portrait & landscape), which I assigned to the "smart button".
Frequent firmeware updates add/enhance new features (1.15 enables music to play while playing flash games). Free, customizable/expandable themes, TTF fonts, wallpapers, equalizers, and games are great.
My only wish is there was a 16GB+ version and that you could customize the white font color and size (I want black for use with light wallpapers, and some larger fonts like Tahoma are clipped vertically in play mode). Perhaps the font size/color will be customizable in a future firmware update. Text display mode does allow for font size adjustment, however.
Btw, videos are 30fps, not 15fps (was in 1st gen) as mentioned in some reviews.
Best of all, I'm not limited a single software, proprietary music format, nor player manufacturer (iStuck). Clix syncs fine with iRiver Plus3, Windows Media Player 11, and even Music Match 10 (the best player until they sold out to Yahoo, imho).
