"why such low rating?"4.5 starson by lct14558
Pros: Slick design, VERY good touch responds contrary to what 3 other ppl say, looks way cooler than mini ipod, comes with a stand unlike mini ipod, better buy than mini ipod due to the accessories
Cons: surface might be too smooth, might fall out of your hand easily; Not enough accessories out yet like a leather protector, but will come out soon...the program for downloading music sucks like iTunes
Summary: Very slick design, did I mention this mp3 player looks "baller" because it's all black when the leds are off. I just got this today and I've checked over other ppl's complaints. Yes, the volume at 100% is not as loud as that of the mini ipod (my girlfriend has the mini ipod so i can make credible comparisons), it's still pretty loud enough for me. I set the volume to about 80% when I feel like listening to loud music. My ears CAN'T stand 90% volume of this thing, so...other ppl who complained might have listend to loud music too much :P
Sound quality is good. Same song on the m:robe sounds the same as ipod It's DIFFERENT than ipods, so that's a plus...
About the touch screen response...seems completely fine to me, don't know what other people are talking about 0.o Very responsive actually, works like magic
This player definitely deserves a same rating, if not higher, than the mini ipods.
