"snazzy, easy to set up, works fine, even my son is addicted to it"4.5 starson by chinacat
Pros: design, Price, ease of set up, doesnt require a PC to charge
Cons: the dependence on the Mtrip prop software
Summary: Just picked this up about 3 days back over the creative - which seemed more feature rich, but this had personality.
I am happy already, software set up easily ( i had apprehensions - my home comp is a souped up P233 mh processor - that according to specs is below the minimum requirements). charged up the mrobe, ripped 2 of my old and fave CD's with Windows media player and plugged in the mrobe. mtrip started up found the albums and loaded them on to the m trip with no hassled. 20 mts later i was listening to music.
sound quality is great, the piece looks so so lovely and in just a day or two the controls feel reasonably intuitive.
i worry about the fact that im dependent on mtrip - but this being my first mp3 player, so far that hasnt beeen a problem, especially since i dont have a changeover issue.
in 2 days already my 2 1/2 year old son, loves this and insists on listening to the mrobe.
im happy!!! why is it not a 10? lack of versatility (mtrip dependence and the support of just mp3 and WMA)
