"A great product"on by homer773820
Pros size, weight, price, navigation, fm tunning, voice recording, compatability with nabster
Cons battery life, no presets for fm tuner, screen is a little hard to read
Summary This is an excellent flash player, especially considering that I got it for $40. I can fit all my "favorite songs" which is enough, plus, you can drog and drop your files in a matter of a couple minutes. I put 100 songs on this device in about 5 minutes, which is pretty speedy. The music sounds great, and I can bring it anywhere, knowing that if (1) it drops or (2) the battery runs out, I know (1) will not break or skip (flash), and (2) I can run to the store and get a AAA battery. What more can you expect from a product that costs $40.
Pros It's compact; easy to use
Cons Only stores about 100 or so songs; armband could be better; USB could be longer
Summary I got this as a gift and considering this is my 1st mp3 player, I like it. I like the fact that I can easily transfer my .wma/.mp3 files from my PC to my player.
The only real issue is not realy being able to load the 240 .wma songs as stated on the package.
Pros Small, Compatible with several services, easy to use
Cons The shuffle option is not random, short USB cord, memory for playback
Summary This is my first MP3 player. I did not buy into the hype of the IPOD. The arm strap is useless, and the earbuds are nothing special. I would have preferred to have a strap hook to put on a keychain or around my neck, but it doesn't. I normally listen to it on my way to work using one of the old cd/cassette deals as my car has a dual cd/cassette deck. When listening to music, the shuffle hardly shuffles. I have heard the same song 3 times before it goes to one it hasn't played, and that is not every now and then, it is everytime. I constantly have to forward to the next song until it finally picks a song I haven't heard in the past 20 minutes. Also, I will download talkshow programs which may be about an hour long. If the MP3 player turns off, and then you power it back on, sure it remembers the last track, but you have to restart from the beginning and skip to wherever you left off. It takes roughly 3 minutes to skip 20min of content. That is a pain. My wife got the free deal from napster for signing up. Hers is exactly what I do want. It remembers where you left off, shuffles just fine, and has a neck strap. I gonna see if she wants to trade All in all, it is a decent player though. Just a few kinks I am sure will be worked out in either firmware updates or later versions.
"Awesome!!!"on by kickassdude01
Pros Great Durability, price, usability
Cons nothing. it is perfect
Summary Okay. I think this is a really good mp3 player. it comes at a great price. and it is very durable.
I have dropped it so many times, i even accidently soaked it in water, and sat on it. and it still works even today! I've had it for 8 months now and it has never dissappointed me.
get it. it will take a lot of beatins and torture and still come out strong. i also own an ipod shuffle (read my reveiw) and this is an excellent back up! so in conclusion.
if you want an mp3 player, that is durable, strong, reliable, and immune to dropping and other fates. and price get it! you will be happy you did!
Pros no proprietary software needed, price, FM receiver, easy to use, easy to find buttons
Cons cheap armband and case that comes with it
Summary I picked this player up at Best Buy for $39 (Black Friday Sale). I currently own a Sony NW E505 but have put it away to use this one. No proprietary software needed and very easy to use. FM receiver picks up more stations than my Sony player. Sound quality is good enough, can't really tell a difference between my Sony and this one. Very pleased with this purchase
