Summary: i workout so much that it is a permanent part of my lifestyle. with that being said, i really needed a reliable mp3 player to fuel my workouts. those certain songs i listen to can really charge me through the more difficult moments in my workouts! i have to say that i didnt even read the booklet that came with this mp3 player yet it was so simple to operate i didnt need to! works great and i would recommend this product to anyone who wants a lotta bang for the buck!
