Not perfect, but it's convenient and takes a beating

Summary: I've had my T30 for two years, and it's still playing. I had no trouble setting it up, really, just a plug and play or plug and upload and I've got plenty of music for a bike trip or a long hike. And when I'm tired of the selections, I just erase what I don't want and download new selections.
Summary: pretty good overall. Invest in AAA's and possibly some tape for that battery cover.
Pros: very tough. Handles drops surprisingly well. excellent sound, and the recorder is fun to mess with. Battery lasts fairly long, but I keep it on low settings.
Cons: the battery cover flies off if you look at it sideways. the battery always stays in, though. Demands the use of WMP to sync music, which is annoying. The backlighting is unnecessary and eats power. you can't completely disable it, either, you can only set it to turn off after a period of inactivi...
Summary: I've had my T30 for about 3 years now. I love the sound quality! It's the best I have ever found in a player of this size. I've tried the SanDisk c150 and another no-name brand which neither could equal the sound quality here.
Summary: I just found a way to get around having to use Windows Media Player. Good thing, because I was just about to give the player away. Using Windows Media Player, there is no way to organize the music in folders (playlists), so you can just go from folder to folder without thumbing through all the songs...
Summary: I recently purchased the T30 to replace my Creative Zen Micro which had bit the dust. I wanted a player that would be easy to use for working out and simple to take anywhere. The T30 has managed that and more.I love just hanging it around my neck and listening anywhere.
Summary: I had IFP-895 before, so I expected that T30 has Radio, and I didn't check that. Now I see that it doesn't have. That's bad. The radio on ifp-895 was great! (very powerful...) I can add ogg files only using Windows Explorer (add to 'data' folder of 'T30' device.
Summary: I got this little player several months ago and was a little worried about a few of the reviews I read here. While its true it eats batteries like crazy and doesn't hold as much music as stated, it still holds quite a bit!
Summary: i purchased this device about 6 months ago for one thing: recording. you can plug any music source into the jack and record for up to 3 hours at 320k. i dabble in DJing and i can take an RCA to Stereo mini Y-plug directly from the mixer into the T30, bypass the computer, bypass any other...
Summary: This was one of the first 1GB flash players that supported subscription music services. When I initially purchased this player, I disliked it. It wouldn't play OverDrive audio books (32kbps), and does not sort files well.
