"Its decent but could be better"3.0 starson by llenod
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.
