Summary: i have owned this for at least 12 years, its backpacked with me all over the U.S., I've dropped it in puddles and dried it out and lost it time and again and i just found it recently and used it for the gym and it still works perfectly!
Summary: I bought this mp3 player 8-9 years ago (maybe longer! I used the "snot" out of it. I wouldn't have run and worked out as much as I did in the past years. I am grateful for it. It was 160$ at the time when I bought it. Now, 1gb player will probably run you 15$ if that.
Even after falling apart several times, this model still keeps running.

Summary: We have several MP3 players and this is THE BEST we have found on the market that has rechargable batteries. My original was five years old and had been dropped so many times that it needed taped together.
Summary: ...dropped my MuVo TX FM in a bucket of paint last week, five years after purchasing for it about $70.00. Washed it under a stream of water for about 10 minutes to get all the paint off the surface and out of the crevices, then let it dry for a bit. It still works; even the mic.
Summary: I already have a 256mb player just like this one. I wanted a 1gb but this model was discontinued. I like the fact that you can record from the radio. When I attend assemblies, I can tune in on the station on the radio and record the program. The back cover was missing from the player.
Summary: I bought 3 of these for my kids back in Aug 2006. I think 2 still work, but the one that failed got wet. It works quite well. I like the many levels of volume, unlike my cell phone. Sound quality is good (though not as good as Cowon D2). The menu is reasonably navigable with adequate features.
