Summary: I wish I had read the reviews on Amazon before I bought this device. I was shopping at a local retail store, looking for a couple of MP3 players I had researched earlier on Amazon, but they didn't have any of the ones I wanted.
Summary: Briefly put: 1- The toggle switch was easily bumped, thus suddenly switching songs, etc... such as when carrying in pocket, or when running with it in the sport band. (I did not discover a way to lock these features when using) 2- The battery life (it takes 1 AA battery and is not rechargeable)...
Summary: This thing has to be one of the worst mp3 players on the market. When I first got it I was satisfied, it did about what I expected. It was a little frustrating that every time it was turned on it had to update the library, taking about a minute to boot up, but something that could be tolerated.
Summary: Well, this was my first experience with an MP3 player, I figured I'd try them before I go for the IPOD. Maybe I should have gone all out from the beginning. I initially liked it's features. The fm tuner was nice, for when I wanted to listen to my favorite show. I also liked the stopwatch.
When it works, it's great. When it's broken. . . you might get it back again. (Keep your receipt.)

Summary: In principle, this is a great product. It's small, expandable, and even has an FM tuner. Sounds like a great iPod nano killer. In principle. Alas, in reality, it does none of these things well, promising much more than it delivers. Well, it might actually deliver some of these. I can't tell.
Summary: This posting is to keep a promise to the Memorex Customer Service Represenative I delt with that I would post my awful experience every place I could on the Web. ****************************************************************** I bought an Memorex MMP8565 and had it just up an die and not power up...
Summary: Terrible!!! This product(the first versions) were excellent but the software sucked. Now they have the software issues resolved but the hardware sucks. It cut out as I ran, and just plain quit working. DO NOT BUY, if you want to have an mp3 player play songs that you can exercise too, this aint it!
Summary: Neat idea to combine FM radio with MP3 player; but DO NOT buy this product. Initiating the FM radio feature, it scans the band to identify a set of presets, which then you can easily navigate between (in theory, see blow).
Summary: My first mp3 player, a little 1GB FM-tuner off-brand, lasted eighteen months of daily usage before I broke the headphone jack. Seeking a similarly-priced substitute, I bought this one. I regret it.
Summary: This product is a piece of junk. The thing freezes almost every time I turn it on. The only thing I can do when that happens is take the battery out and put it back in. Even then, the thing just keeps on freezing when I try to play a song.
