Summary: ive had my m:robe for years and love it but just recently i have lost the disk that holds the software on it and i can not find anything online to buy a new disk or even just an online download so i am unable to add or remove songs to it so other than that its great if there is a way to get the software back please please feel free to share.
Summary: I've had the m:robe for 3+ years and it's still going strong. So take that you nay-sayers. Yes I also have collected an iPod mini and iTouch over the years, but the m:robe goes on. It was just ahead of the iPod curve when introduced, with smaller size, more memory and the first with all-glass front. And I can get a replacement battery for only $10. Ha!
Summary: I am yet to receive this item that I ordered on November 10. There is no way to contact the company or there is not a tracking number or phone number to reach anyone regarding this product. This item was added to my credit card on November 10 and it is now Dec. 12, 2008 with no merchandise or credit back to my account. I would never use this company again. They have not responded to any of my emails (which is the only way to contact them).
Summary: Great sound quality, easy interface, good battery length, easy to use with an FM transmitter. Only negative would be updating the firmware from the Olympus website is annoying but easy and only has to be done one time.
Summary: The m:robe is far better than the iPod in sound quality. The motion sensor on the m:robe is great and beats the ipods click wheel easily. IPod's are known to break easily and are poorly put together inside. The m:robe has anti-g shock protection which means it will not skip a song and works better than a iPod with a hard drive in this manner.
Summary: I received an Olympus m:robe 100 for my birthday back in April and it has not let me down yet. The user interface is slick and responsive, the sound quailty is top-notch(with good headphones), and the look is ultra-cool. I was impressed that such a high quaility digital jukebox came from a digital camara maker. The player is not with out faults(don't worry,most can be easily remedied). The headphones that are provided leave something to be desired.
