"Great MP3 player, the guy who rated it a 3 hasn't got a clue."5.0 starson by SkyyRSN
Pros: Stunning looks, great functionality, LYRICs feature...
Cons: one thing only; the right headphone cord is longer than the left...
Summary: This mp3 player is beautiful, plain and simple.
It works awesome and is a very solid mp3 player. I have gone through 4 mp3s before this and really, this is the BEST, I like it more than the iPod. All of my friends who have iPods minis have said they like the way this one looks beter.
#2: LYRICS. I have some songs that are in japanese, and i can actually sing to them thanks to the lyrics.
The guy who rated it a 3 and complained about the software is most likely a 45 year old computer illiterate man who doesnt really know how to do things other than use MS Word and his E-mail. If you take a good 20 minutes or so and get used to their software, its really easy. you CAN change the names, and you can program a LOT of other things in as well. One complaint by others is that the volume is too low. it was when i bought it, but go to olympus' website and download the lastest firmware. They have fixed the volume issue.
Lastly, there was one thing that I didnt like.
The headphones have a cord setup im not all that satisfied with. Where the one cord splits into two to the left and right phones, the right side cord is about 2.5 the lenght of the left. The setup would be much better had they been designed with the left cord as long as the right.
I have had this mp3 player for 4 months, and haven't had a single problem.
In conclusion, this is a very solid mp3 player and I highly recommend it.
