Summary: My Memorx 8002 was a Christmas gift. It was very difficult to operate, instructions were poor. Would not respond to lmenus, just a bad one all round. My call to Memorex resulted in a suggestiion to reformat - whick I had already done. it was stuck on Play All and stayed there. My options came to stick it in a drawer and forget it or throw it away. Big help.
Summary: My son loves the MP3 player. It is user friendly, cute and easy to take with him everywhere he goes. My only issue is that the headphones are not comfortable, and I had to replace them the only reason for not giving it 5 stars.
Summary: Bought this as a cheap unit for the gym. My wife keeps washing my mp3 players. this was to replace a ZEN stone. compared to the Zen Stone the sound is tinny and the controls are not as easy to use. It does have a display though.
Summary: A few months ago, I bought this MP3 player, as it was cheap and I was in need of a new MP3 player. The day I got it, it froze on me. I should have known then that this would be trouble. After only having this MP3 player for a couple of months, I've had numerous issues with it. The first was a problem with it turning off and freezing for no apparent reason. The final straw came today when, for no real reason, the MP3 player would not take a charge.
Two major flaws: Bad Headphones and Fixed Shuffle option

Summary: First of all, when I tried to play the mp3 player the left headphone wasn't working. I was very disappointed when Target told me that they would charge me a 20% restocking fee for something that didn't work in the first place!!! Second, the "SHUFFLE ALL" option doesn't actually shuffle the songs. It places the tracks in a random order when your music is uploaded but it saves the tracks random order and uses the same track order when you select the "SHUFFLE ALL" option.
Summary: The player is small and plastic, so it's very light. The clip is pretty flimsy (and easily becomes detached from clothing). It works with Windows Media Player, so it's easy to load and manage your music. The functionality covers the basics (play by shuffle, playlists, genre, artist, album, etc.). I've used it for a few months now and it seems to be holding up (better than my wife's iPod Suffle).
Summary: I used this for training and participation in a snow shoe race. Works great and has a ton of space. My only complaint is that it stopped working once when it was really cold out. After that I kept it inside my jacket and haven't had any problems since.
Summary: After spending $$$$ on an ipod and ipod nano, neither was really that good for the gym. The 60 gig ipod skips tons, and the nano is a little too big to clip onto your body (unless you have pockets or a bulky armband holder, which always slides down on me.) I can't believe this inexpensive unit does the trick--the FM radio and display makes it a better unit than the ipod shuffle.
