Summary: I got this as a birthday present for my 8 year old nephew. He wanted an MP3 player so bad. When he opened it he couldnt get it to work. Me and his mom both worked with it only to find out it was shipped to us defective. Be careful of brands you don't recognize.
Summary: This is a really nice mp3 player for the price. The only downfall of it is that the supplied in-ear headset has a tendency of falling out if you're moving a bit. I would recommend that you purchase a cheap in-ear headset that wraps around your ear so that they stay in place. Other then that, really nice.
Summary: I AM HAPPY WITH THE UNIT, BUT THE EAR-PIECE I RECEIVED WAS FAULTY FROM DAY ONE. I CALLED CUSTOMER SERVICE TO GET A NEW ONE AND WAS TOLD I COULD BUY ONE (EAR-PIECE) ANYWHERE. I ASKED ABOUT THE WARRANTY AND WAS TOLD IT WOULD COST $6 FOR SHIPPING & HANDLING AND AGAIN THAT I COULD BUY ONE ANYWHERE. THE EAR-PIECE MUST BE WORTH LESS THAN $6 THEN. NICE (SARCASTIC) CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!
Summary: This was a gift to my almost 10 year old and she loves it! It is very easy to download songs onto, has pretty good sound quality and is durable. It does go through batteries fairly quickly, although I would say she gets about 10-12 hours of use out of 1 battery, and she mostly plays it with speakers (purchased seperately).
Summary: Now, I'll start off with the downsides. This item looks nothing like the picture. Well, same color scheme, but its not the pretty picture you see. The MP3 player looks very poorly made. That being said though... I can't complain about it. I didn't buy it for looks. And, for only about $37... it doesn't need to look good. Heck, most companies charge $37 for the friggin' matching armband, but one comes with this sucker... which is why I bought it to begin with.
Summary: Decent player for the price. Battery performance is ok. FM reception is awful but that seems to be the only drawback. $30 is not bad for a player with 1 gb of memory. The nice thing is it comes with the armband although the armband I got is a funky tan color.
