"BIGGEST waste of time"1.0 starson by donteatmecheers
Pros: Nice appearance, easy controls, good sound quality
Cons: UNRELIABLE, problems syncing, questionable storage.
Summary: I recieved the mr-100 for christmas, after about a month of looking around, this one seemed to have the best reviews. It worked fine for a month and a half, and i was really happy with it. At the beginning of February it stopped synchronising, and even when i unplugged it from the computer, it still registered on the screen as being plugged in.
Also, when I looked at the storage amount in "properties", it stated it had no free space, and no used space. After two frustrating weeks of phone conversations with the people from Olympus who clearly had no idea what they were doing, I finally got mine sent back to the selling company. I then got a replacement, which lasted a good two weeks and then had to be sent back again. Two more models were recieved and eventually sent back with different faults or problems occuring after about a week. After finally receiving yet another model, and watching it fail to work once again, I decided it wasn't worth the bother and got a full refund.
I'm going for the Ipod now, what a waste of time just to get an attractive model.
Another downside is that it doesn't fill up the 5gb, but around 4.3. But i guess it's the same with all of them.
DO NOT BUY THE MR-100.
