Summary: Seems to work ok. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Summary: I just can not believe after calling customer support to be told that this unit does not support playlists. Why? Why would a mp3 player ever be designed that does not support playlists. I thought that was a standard. Apparently synchronize playlist with mp3 player does nothing but that doesn't mean it won't take ten minutes trying to do a short playlist of about 100 songs without even hinting it failed. Will try to return.
Pros: Plays music, decent battery life
Cons: Incredibly slow software and does not support playlists.
Summary: For a tiny machine, this thing packs alot of punch. The screen is big and clear, so I can easily see what's written on it. Loading songs onto it is easy. The sound is loud and clear. The radio feature is nice, but it doesn't pick up many channels and you have to hold it at certain angles for certain channels, but that may have as much to do with my location as anything else. I haven't tried the text or picture functions.
Summary: Sending this back for a refund. Main problem is that, after loading the device with files, it needs to refresh the music library after every power-down and start. Then the library refresh takes forever; my battery actually ran down the last time before the library refresh was completed. Buttons and jog-wheel are of poor construction; I have to find a very small sweet-spot to get them to take input.
