Summary: I have owned this player for almost 3 years now. (mine is a 1 GB version with another 1gb card in the slot). I love this thing. The other reviewer was right, the instructions were not clear but I don't remember having trouble with the firmware. Also you must convert video to avi. to play it. They included an avi converter disc which did not work on my windows vista, just my older xp. My biggest complant was the "buttons" took quite a while to get used to.
Summary: Too bad this player's utimate performance did not live up to its very attractive appearance. It worked fine for a week, then went into a mode where it circulated endlessly through its menus and couldn't be shut off. I made an attempt to update the firmware according to the player's instruction manual, but they were written in such poor English that I found it impossible to accomplish properly. I'm returning the device to Amazon.
Summary: This is a nice player. I really like the sound quality and the ear buds. I bought an adaptor for the car and play it through my AUX outlet. I would recommend this to anyone interested. I didn't want to buy and Ipod which I think are overrated and over priced. This was the perfect fit for me.
Summary: This is a great buy and what a steal lfor the price. I have several mp3s and mp4 players including 2 Ipods but by far this is my favorite. Alot of features and such ease to operate. I would definitely recommend this to any and everybody! The only thing that I wish that came with this player was a carrier that I could use to work out with it.
Summary: Sound is excellent! Will highly recommend. My only gripe is that when you turn the player off, and then back on, it goes back right from the beginning, it does not continue where you left off.
Summary: I have enjoyed the player for about a week now. I use it to listen to audio books on my commute to work. The audio and video quality is outstanding. My only issue is that after turning it off, it does not begin exactly where it was turned off. It does begin with the track that was playing when it was turned off, just not the exact place. The voice recording feature is awesome and I had a radio employee borrow it to record a commercial!
Summary: Had the unit for over 45 days and use it constantly. A bit smaller than I pictured. Crisp, clear screen for vids, with excellent audio and audio controllers (pre-programmed AND user-program EQs). Built-in speaker is a plus. I've downloaded tons of music, pix, video-books and videos and still have tons of room left. Seems pretty rugid...it's been rough handled some and even dropped once...it's like a Timex.
