Summary: I also bought mine at Target for about $100. Wish I hadn't! I had no problem working the controls once I figured them out. The sound quality is ok but not the best. My problem is that it keeps shutting off. Even with a full charge it plays a few songs (if you are lucky) and then shuts off. I thought Memorex would build a good product. I guess I was wrong. It's a shame it cost me $100 of my hard earned dollars to learn this lesson.
Summary: I bought this for my daughter. It cost me $100. It worked for awhile. Then, we charge it, it says fully charged. The computer shows the songs that are in there. You turn it on, it says "building sorted list" then shuts off. I went online to see if I could find a solution and there are so many other people who complain about the same problem. I tried resetting it many times. Nothing works and there is nowhere you can get help from.
Summary: I was sent the memorex mmp9008 as a christmas gift. 6 weeks later it glitched out, powering up and shutting down, buttons responding and not responding. It was working one minute and pshyco the next. I called memorex, the tech support was okay. There was a form to fill out, mass emailer response, and after using the tech support number on the memorex site at each stage (representative interpretations of the email responses were needed.
Summary: This is hands-down the worst Mp3 player I've ever owned. While in the store (Target) I found it on clearance and really liked the idea of expandable memory. I bought mine in early October and at first it seemed alright at best. I still haven't figured out where the shuffle option is (there isn't one) and there isn't an option for continuous play.
Summary: I bought this unit refurbished for 50 dollars and it's worked perfectly. The on/off battery is a little hard to use but otherwise, it's worked well. I bought it with the idea of using it to watch videos on it and occasionally songs. I've put 4 movies and 4 albums and it's at less than half capacity. It plays the videos clearly though not in widescreen. The battery last about 2 hours watching videos. The audio sounds good to me but I'm not that picky.
Summary: I got this for a bargain price of $38, and so therefore wasn't expecting much. I usually list the good/bad for an item so here goes: Can't be used when recharging. Automatically dims and turns off the LCD display when playing long videos. doesn't have a "keep on" function I've found so far. Scratches very easy. Requires syncing with Windows Media Player to have files work. You can copy them directly onto it but then you get a license error message.
Summary: Wish I returned this item. The sound quality stinks and I don't like the software to download the music. Wish it was Windows media player based downloading. Did not seem to charge fully once my computer went screen saver mode. Save your money and invest in Sony or an Ipod...
