"Just about perfect"4.5 starson by MSKGNW
Pros: Easy to use, great features. great price, shockingly excellent FM receiver. Expandable memory. You can watch a video and look at pictures if you want to.
Cons: On/off switch a little hard to use. non-replaceable battery
Summary: After spending TOO much time getting my kid's iPod Touch to work and dealing with the inflexibility of iTunes I looked around for the best non-iPod player out there and found the Fuze. Paired with Creative EP640 ear buds makes the Fuze just about perfect. Sync's easily with Windows Media Player (& probably RealPlayer). You can also load stuff as though it was a disk drive. All with software you probably already have installed.
Used the FM receiver while camping in the mountains of Pennsylvania and was shocked at the quality of the audio. I could not hear a difference between the FM and the 128 Kbps MP3's I had just listened to.
Overall sound quality is excellent.
Though small, photos viewed on the screen were vivid and crisp. As for video, I probably would not want to watch a full length movie but if you wanted to catch a music video or something else short, its a nice feature to have.
Haven't used the voice recorder in a real situation yet, but that's another nice feature to have.
This is one great little player.
