  • Summary: I was very disappointed in this player for a number of reasons. The sound quality was horrible, I bought different headphones, but the quality didn't improve. The operating buttons for all functions were VERY non user friendly!

Okay for the price

  • Summary: The first unit I bought had a battery that wouldn't hold a charge. Returned it for one with a good battery, but with "stuck" buttons. Not a huge issue, but it screams of bad quality control. Beware. Can't comment heavily on the other features. Radio works okay. Haven't tried the microphone.
  • Pros: Good and simple MP3 player, especially if you can get it on sale or locally for about $30. I haven't timed the rechargeable battery exactly, but suffice to say it lasts quite a few hours and recharges very quickly. The sound quality may not please hardcore audiophiles, but I don't have any huge c...
  • Cons: Biggest issue: This player uses Random -- not Shuffle -- and its random number generator appears to be flawed. On multiple occasions, the same track has played twice in a row, or else in a Track 1, Track 2, Track 1 order. This may be less of an issue if you have 4GB of 128 bitrate music. Random a...

'salright

  • Summary: It's got the same guts as a Coby MP-series player, just in a different housing.
  • Pros: Small, built in battery, built in radio, and has a clip. Sound quality isn't too bad either, even with equalizer applied.
  • Cons: There's two power switches; there's a switch on the end that seems to physically cut the power off when you switch it (and cut it off from being connected to a computer as well). But you can also turn it on and off by holding down the menu button if you just leave the physical switch turned on.

  • Summary: Don't buy this mp3 it is a piece of garbage! Mine is being returned as I type.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Small screen, poor instruction manual. Does not cover how unit charges. Unit seemed to have a mind of its own. Deleted files, programmed sttings would not be there upon turning unit back on had to format the unit but this did not help.

Not user friendly

Richard F., Newegg
20 April 2010
  • Pros: 4GB memory
  • Cons: Very hard to use. Buttons too small. Too many steps to change from radio to player. Display almost impossible to read. Very poor back light. Radio introduces background clicks not found with similar MP3 player radio.

ok by me

  • Summary: I rated it too high - too bad I will not hit it for the phones as mine worked with some fidgetting and sounded good enough. So far it seems sturd and sounds good.
  • Pros: It does well in the way i wanted it for. In the car this player communcates very well. It shows all the titles on original CDs snd artist. It competes or beats the strongest FM radio channels for quality. The sound is clear and detailed. I like the pigtail as I feel the straight connnect in the r...
  • Cons: The ear phones are actuallly acceptable. The 1/8" minijack plug is the worst i ever saw. The out of the vehicle navigation is the pits. You need long thumbnail to work it and the direction on how to navgate are sparse - trial and error will be your friend

don't buy it

Dennis M., Newegg
28 July 2009
  • Summary: Read the review first be4 you purchase any item. I was fulled by seeing 8GB. I thought that was a good buy. Now all of them are sitting in the corner. Useless! Because my friends don't know how to use.
  • Pros: I wished I read the review 1st before I purchase them. one of review said all these features horribly difficult to use. That was so true. I had 3 different MP3. I figured out how to use in 5 min. This things took me half hour still couldn't figure it out. very frustrated.
  • Cons: The worst was I bought them for my 6 friends. They trusted me because I already had other mp3 and they were good. two of them are philips and even cheaper then Centon but was only 2GB.

Stay Away

John S., Newegg
10 July 2009
  • Summary: I got this for $30 after S&H about a month ago and all I can say is you get what you pay for - cheap junk. I got it because I really wanted something like the Sony 2GB gum stick sized mp3 player that my wife has, but with more memory. This was the only thing I could find like it at the time.
  • Pros: - has lots of memory in a compact size - offers a good range of features (voice recoding, reads text files, plays music, fm player, etc.) - too bad the user interface makes all these features horribly difficult to use.
  • Cons: - data started getting corrupt within the first week. It was so bad that their internal program is actually overwriting my files. I now have tons of files where my resume used to be with names like "function(isQueue..." that say they are 98GB in size. - it is the SLOWEST USB device ever. Seriousl...
