Pros Stylish, small, holds what I need
Cons No screen and I don't think the battery lasts the 13 hours as indicated on the specs.
Summary To the person who said there's no shuffle, there is... read the book. Getting used to the Smart Key took some time, but it's not as bad as the reviews make it out to be. It's light and small and easy to tuck away into your shirt. It's my walking buddy! The battery lasts longer than my daughter's IPOD Shuffle and my husbands MP3 so I'm happy with it although I don't think it lasts quite 13 hours. I got this when Best Buy was leaving our local mall and had a blow out sale. $12!!! It's been the best thing I've ever bought for $12! I recommend it to everyone.
"A pretty loyal friend"on by imoh5
Pros 1. audio quality is great
2. it's tiny!
3. resists scratches pretty well
4. survived a 45 minute wash - i didn't check to see if it'd work, but i stuck it in a bag of silica and rice for one and a half weeks. I was so relieved!
Cons wish i could have the tracks sorted into albums, mine is a 2GB one and it can get pretty frustrating trying to find something so i have to decide which two or three albums i'll stick in for the week before i change them. a waste of space really.
Summary great product. very much worth the buy, and i'll be sad to let it go when it dies *not anytime soon hopefully*!
Pros EXTREMELY durable.
Fits quite well in a pocket.
Has a place to insert loop.
Has 3 play modes (+volume, light echo (my favorite), and 'tunnel echo' (horrible)).
Cons Less than 1gb of space (940mb)
Hard to see led light in places that are lit and outside during the morning.
Switching modes is hard at first.
Summary This first fell off when I was riding my bike (the cord from my headphones got wrapped around the handlebars somehow) and after falling for 4 feet and skidding about 3 feet into sand the only thing that happened to it was it got dirty.
Another time it fell 4 feet, no damage.
And just today I found out it went through my washer AND dryer and there is no recognizable damage so far.
This is a GREAT product if you just want to listen to music.
"Small and Awesome"on by akc5247
Pros Size, Audio Quality, Storage, Small Flash Light, Playback time (# of hours)
Cons No shuffle, sometimes randomly shuffles and plays.
Summary Its 1GB, small cute sleek; awesome. Sometimes it shuffles and plays its own playlist. But thats not too often. The light that blinks can be to the like/ dislike - depends on the person who wears it. I like it, personally. Bought this for around $22 at a Best Buy @ mid-town Manhattan. Its a great product for a small size, low cost mp3 player.
Pros It's very small and stylish with a surprisingly good sound! For me, it has been user friendly and convenient. I like that it CAN be wall charged, and the display lights are a comforting feature! I AM PLEASED WITH THE PLAYER! 5 STARS!
Cons I AM TERRIBLY ANNOYED WITH THE PACKAGING which caused major damage, making my first one useless! 0 STARS on packaging! There's no screen, which doesn't bother me at all, and I think better earphones would be nice.
Summary THE BAD PACKAGING: The unit is TIGHTLY lodged at the headphone jack with a HARD-plastic pin which extends down the back then scoops the bottom. You need to pull firmly, yet gently, in a downward/forward direction. In the process of trying to manipulate it out, the HARD plastic cracked the thin plastic liner at the jack. It must have done internal damage because I have yet to get it to function at all!!! I had purchased two and although the 2nd one was VERY DIFFICULT to unlodge, I did get out. PLEASE BE CAREFUL IF YOURS IS PACKAGED THE SAME WAY!
THE PLAYER: As for the player itself, I honestly have no complaints. It's ideal for my purpose which is, for the most part, working outside and rockhounding. Nice sounding loud music to motivate in a very portable and light-weight size!
The headphone: I will probably upgrade to a better fit, and my daughter has complained about hearing them when I'm using the player.
