Summary: I still use it every day & can't say enough good things about it. I already have a spare but might get more. Designed smart, works well & has an equalizer. A little static on full blast over time but I can't complain for the price.
has great sound, and uses an easy to replace AA ...

Summary: I've had this for well over 10 years and it hasn't missed a beat. I've taken this all over the world, countless road trips, used it all day, every day for months on end, and, aside from a couple of freezes(cheap batteries), I haven't had any problems with it. I just throw it in my backpack and go.
Summary: I got this refurb. off ebay just last December(2012), as this is a discontinued item. I can see why. It has WEAK sound. NO Bass to speak of. Even the Sony am/fm discman I used for years had much better sound.
Summary: Doesn't get five stars because of the lack of radio and it I'd like it to have come with something I could put it in to go jogging. That being said. Its an excellent mp3 player small but with a AA battery instead of AAA. Excellent long playing time. No major problems in over 2 years of usage.
Summary: Really, actually does go well over 40, 50, 60 hours using 1 AA battery - also works with almost dead batteries. Does not offer extra features like radio, recording, etc... but great for listening to e-books or music etc...
Great sounding but Windows Media Player 11 killed it.

Summary: We have owned this device since it came out. Recently, it stopped working as we remembered it. When you hook it up via USB cable, it would appear with the green icon in the lower right corner, and was recognized as a "Mass Storage Device.
Summary: I've had one of these for two and half years. I've dropped it, stepped on it, and yesterday it fell into a glass of water and sat there for about 2 minutes before I noticed. It still works! Battery life is as advertised. I love this thing.
Summary: I've had many players before, they all had something I didn't like. This one has it all. Here are the things that I liked. The buttons on this really work well. Not spongy like some I've had. The power is unmatched with the larger battery.
Summary: I have put this mp3 through demanding use for well over a year, and am impressed enough that I'm considering buying another one and setting it aside for the day the one I have finally dies. No need to chime in with the other reviewers, as they explain the features well.
