Summary: I recently received this unit as a surprise Christmas gift. Believe you me, If I had known my parents were purchasing one, I would have researched first. Hopefully, I will save someone time and money. First off, the software that it comes with (the juke box thing) only offers a 96 kbps, while the player offers up to 256. Of course, this is only a problem if you try to rip CD songs and convert them to mp3s.
