"don't bother"0.5 starson by eastbound2009
Pros: the cost was relatively low
Cons: doesn't work, too time-consuming to get it fixed
Summary: i have never posted a review before but i wanted to provide this info. i bought this mp3 player for gym use before a long trip abroad. once turned on, i could not turn it off. when i pressed the plastic off button, the device would scan for stations. i took this back to walmart where i bought it, but they said if it had been more than 30 days (or maybe it was 2 weeks) i had to mail it back to the manufacturer and wait for them to try to fix it. since i was leaving for a long trip, i didn't have time to wait several weeks for it to be fixed. so i would charge it on my laptop before each trip to the gym, the battery would wear down after each use bc I couldn't shut it off, then i would have to recharge it. really annoying. also the armband clip broke almost immediately so i had to try to use the wristband while in the gym. when i left for my trip, i just left his behind. i have since switched to the shuffle and given up on radio players, since the quality of the ipod-type players is far superior to those that play radio stations.
