"THIS PRODUCT IS NOT ENGINEERED TO LAST"1.0 starson by beaufordslyone
Cons: This device is not built to last. I've had 2 devices in 15 months. The first device failed about six months of regular use. The USB interface stopped working. I waited 2 months to send me a replacement. Replacement died after 6 months of light use.
Summary: I've been buying MP3 players since the Diamond Rio 500 with 64MB of memory. I've purchased the Ipod Nano which is comparable to this player. My son accidentally left it in his pocket and it went through the washing machine. The Nano still worked when it dried!!
I've had two Sansa Fuze players in a little over a year. Both failed after 6 months of light use. I did everything to protect my player. I even bought a hard shell plastic case. This player is typical "MADE IN CHINA" junk. It's a sealed unit because they don't expect it to last more than the warranty. Spend the extra $50 and buy the IPOD.
By the way: My Diamond Rio 500 from 1998 still works.
