Excerpt: I bought one of these as I'm no big fan of Mac products and I wanted something super tiny. This certainly fits the bill for tiny. First off this is a niche market device - if you want 200 hours of music to travel around the country with, this isn't for you. However if you want some tunes for a couple hours while mowing the lawn its fantastic. Cautions: !! Something to be extremely careful with on this model ( and with all Mobi Cubes ) is moisture.
Pros: The small size is its huge advantage - also records audio .
Cons: Buttons a bit small, navigation is not entirely easy . Moisture Sensitive .
Pros: If the reference is about the volume, i- Pod Shuffle wins. But if the reference is about a fully featured mp3 player then there is no doubt that mobiblu wins. Why go for an i- Pod shuffle if you can go for the cube 2 that gives you all the features an mp3 player. You enjoy and get your money's worth.
Cons: Absolutely none at the moment. It doesn't mean that i- Pod pioneered the mp3 player doesn't mean that they are still the best. I'm just trying to be fair in terms of other brands where the mp3 quality has gone beyond what i- Pod can offer.
Summary: I purchased the earlier cube a year ago and still enjoy it very much. I am going to jump to the cube2 for that exact reason. I trust their products and they have made some simple improvements on an already great product. the outer casing looks better (especially with the loop on the top for attaching the earphones being better hidden, less breakable i think. and the video playback sounds awesome. am i going to be watching movies and video on it? probably not.
Summary: Very unique, and the "Ohh what's that?" statement comes into everyday life often. It's cute and it's small. The screen is annoying, so I avoid it as much as possible. I didn't realise it was so expensive until i saw the price the other day.
Pros: The size is great, teachers don't notice it, and the compliments are in everyday life. Auto Artist sorting is a great invention, plus with the genre, album and artist sorting it truly does make life a lot simpler.
Cons: The small screen is unbarable. Although the size is fine with me, somedays it's just too small. I loose it easily although it's constantly in my pocket. The landyard head phones break easily, (which clearly have for me) so I use other not as expensive headphones.
Summary: I got this cube about a week ago, and it took me about 5 minutes to learn how to use it all. Fairly easy if you read the manual. I've never really had another mp3 player, but I've seen my friends' iPods or whatever they had, and this one is far better. I love it! The buttons aren't too small for me & the screen is just fine. That is, after all, the whole point of the cube. To be small. The headphones are a bit strange, but they tried.
Summary: I have the DAH-1500i (AKA : the older cube) I'm very happy with this particular brand, because it keeps people occupied during classes or wherever. I know the screen may seem small, but as the days go along, you tend to get used to it. I saw the Cube2 just the other day, and I demanded it. It's in the mail this moment, and it's coming along the way. The landyard isn't the best thing to have for the Cube2 as it is extremely hard to look at the screen.
Pros: EXTREMELY ATTRACTIVE, this I can promise you. It's most definatally a (Oooh, What's that? Is that an mp3 player?!) kind of a gesture.
Cons: Yes, the button and the screen is small, but you grow into the fact that it's small, and you just adjust. Don't worry, it's always a good thing to have MobiBLU around. Really easy to put songs on this mp3 player, because it acts as a removable hardware (basically, you can put anything on here!) *SCORE*
Summary: I thought the cute little cube2 deserved my attention so I curiously clicked on the video review. Much to my astonishment, the reviewer (Ella Morton) seemed more interested in displaying her ridiculously inept comedic abilities rather than provide a succint and eloquent review (as one would expect).
