Summary: After going through three ipods over the past four years, I knew it was time to make a switch elsewhere. After scanning some reviews for the Zune and iRiver, I kept constantly seeing MusicGremlin pop up in the Zune review. I deicded to check it out...
Summary: All you need to know is--over 2 million songs immediately accessable from wherever you are! No computers, no waiting. Pretty sweet. All you need is your MusicGremlin unit, a wi-fi signal, and your choice of songs.
Summary: The concept is great - being able to hop onto unsecured WiFi networks and grab music when and where you feel like it. I never had an issue getting on WiFi networks and the d/l speeds were fine.
Summary: This product is great for people who travel or spend a lot of time on the go. However, one thing that is missing is the ability to easily transfer your existing music from your computer to your Gremlin.
Summary: This device isn't cheap. After setting up my account, I downloaded 4 albums of songs. I went to play an album, the menu froze up. I tried the power button - no go. I hard reset with a paper clip and still nothing, its permanently stuck on the a "please wait..." screen. Forever.
Summary: Much as the iPod replaced the Walkman, I think the MG has chance to replace the iPod. Two weeks ago, I thought my iPod was a perfectly serviceable music player -- sure it was tethered to my PC, but what was the alternative? I've since been using the MusicGremlin.
Summary: I bought the MG-1000 when it first became available because I loved the idea of being able to download music without having to be tethered to a computer (especially appreciated not having to clog up our computer with music files in order to get them onto an MP3 player).
Summary: I purchased my Gremlin In August of 2006 and i loved it...keyword, loved. 3 weeks after receiving the player and downloading songs to it (over 1000) i began getting software failure messages. After 2 days of these messages and constant system lock-up I went straight to the company.
