"Good player but not as advertised"1.5 starson by nmpiper
Pros: Very sharp and bright screen, good sound quailty, ability to play video out using included cable
Cons: Poor battery life expect 4-5 hours minium, Dust under the screen after a few months, all of your songs get erased ocassionally, whole harddisk wipes clean with no way to restore firmware
Summary: I've had this player for a year now. I'm glad they stopped making it. I bought it because it wasn't an Ipod and it got good reviews. The unit itself was great. I loved the thing for the first couple months of ownership. The battery life was the only bummer in the beginning. Only having 4-5 hours of audio playback is abysmal. If you do a lot of driving or take long trips you won't be able to listen to your mp3 player the whole time which just plain sucks. Then you have to buy a car charger. Good luck in finding one. There are absolutely no accessories for this thing or at least any that you can find. Also after a couple of months the screen got a layer of dust under it making the once brillant display crappy.
Now the biggest problem, the thing likes to erase it's harddrive. I'm not hard on my electronics at all. I've been listening to it and have the music stop because the data got erased. This wasn't a big deal(besides being a pain) at first because you can just sync it to your computer. BUT just recently the player decided to erase absolutly everything on the harddrive including the firmware. Then we get to the biggest problem of them all. NO SUPPORT. Good luck in contacting toshiba you'll get no help and you won't find anything on the internet for it either, nor the instruction manual. So, I've got a perfectly good working, never dropped, scratch free mp3 player that i can't use just because I can't get support from the company. The mp3 player says check the manual and the manual has nothing in it. I've read every page! I'm glad you can't buy this piece of crap anymore. I'm sorry for anyone who already owns it. If you're in the market for an mp3 player buy an ipod or a zune. Get something that has accessories and good support!
