Summary: I was trying to decide between this and an ipod nano, and this one was about $50 cheaper and had a bigger screen on it. I have never had any problems with it. The interface is pretty slick and it plays every kind of audio file I can come up with (and a couple I haven't heard of). It sounds great and the battery lasts plenty long for me. I mainly use it on flights and it always lasts the 4-8 hours I am at the airport or on a plane.
Not perfect, but better choice than Ipod, in my opinion

Summary: With a price so much better than video IPods of similar memory capacity, the excellent sound quality, compatibility with so many formats, and nice picture quality, I would say that this is a good buy. The batteries charge quickly and I've had it last about 15 hours playing music. I've had mine for quite a while now, and have had no major problems with it. But I wouldn't call it an IPod killer.
Summary: This is my first "real" MP3 player. (I had a very rudimentary one about 6 or 7 years ago). I knew I didn't want an iPod because a) I didn't want to support the Apple empire, b) it's not the best value for your money, and c) from friend's horror stories, it just seems like an unbearably unreliable product. After a thorough Amazon search, I settled on the Meizu, and I am in love.
Summary: My major complain is that the FM radio function is pathetic. As for customer support, when I downloaded a video converter from their offical website(WisMencoder), my computer reported trojan found.
Summary: Meizu's M6 miniplayer really is an ipod killer for people who don't mind learning the user interface. It takes some getting used to, but the features can't be beat: FM, mp3, mp4 (xvid), and outstanding battery life. It really does get 20 hrs of audio playback. I haven't tried draining it on video yet, but it just keeps going.
Summary: This player is really cool! It truly is an iPod Killer. The best thing is that you can drag and drop your MP3 files and it looks and feels just like an iPod. Only one small issue, no pun intended, but the slot for the carry band is very small and it takes patience and time to get the carry band attached to the player. The sound coming of this unit is INCREDIBLE!!! It realy sounds good in car stereo systems where you can plug the unit in via an audio-to-audio cable!
Excerpt: "Meizu Mini Player 1GB The Meizu Mini Player is the latest addition to the flash based mp3 player market. It's competing against offerings from Apple, Creative and Sony but how does the Meizu fair against the competition. Well pretty good infact. The player comes in 4 different sizes, 1GB, 2GB, 4GB, 8GB and you can get the player in two different colours, black or white. The design of the play is heavily influenced by the iPod but because of this ...
Pros: Big clear screen, sounds excellent, supports movies, photos, music, text, games
Excerpt: "...to buy it just before Meizu increased the price nationwide by about £10. FIRST IMPRESSIONS: I received the M6 in its own personalized bag with some writing in chinese and a picture of it on the front. I got it out of the bag and found, of course, for the packaging to be just like the iPod's, as is alomst everything to do with this player. I turned it on and found that all the menus were in chinese. To fix this I went to a very good fansite where ...
Pros: Long battery life, plays videos, wide range of audio formats, great screen, all for £29
