Worthless for Playing Audiobooks and Podcasts in MP3 Format

Summary: I use my mp3 players for listening to podcasts and audiobooks as well as music. The problem with the Ariaz is that it won't remember where you left off in a podcast or audiobook that is in mp3 format. Instead, the player starts the file from the beginning every time you open it.
Summary: i like that it is platform independent, plug into pc and drag/drop your music etc. it doesn't lay .avi nor does it recognize playlists from media player. gone through two of these already. save your money
Summary: This thing has all the features that it advertises, but can't play more than 3 or 4 songs on shuffle before it stops. Also, it shuts down sometimes & you can't turn it back on without hitting the reset button. So much for continuity.

Great MP3 player, lousy video player, needs improvement.

Summary: Lets start off with a few competitors... Sandisk Sansa and Apple Ipods. I have been a fan of the Sansa line for a long time now. Sandisk really has the corner on the market with their products. As for Apple Ipod related stuff, I just don't care for them.
Summary: To put it in extremely blunt, layman's terms, the Aria is the iPod's trailer-trash cousin. I'll list the good qualities first and foremost, because, frankly, the good qualities last all of one extended descriptive sentence: The Aria features attractive packaging, a nice product name, a very good,...
