Nice

Can't beat the price.

Adam F., Newegg
23 April 2009
  • Summary: Drag files to folder and bypass all music players.
  • Pros: The price was superb for what you get. Very visually appealing with glossy black plastic and nice screen. Small but not too small. Fiance likes it and it was for her.
  • Cons: 2gb might not be enough. Menu is clunky, not easy to navigate. Hard to import videos. Can only charge via usb.

Great so far!

Sobalvarro F., Newegg
12 April 2009
  • Summary: I would recommend this to anyone in need of a cheap mp3 player to take to the gym or whatever. btw- New Egg has great customer service!!
  • Pros: The price is the first thing that caught my eye, and its a phillips. It can play video, pics, and it has a radio! My 80gig ip*d doesn't even have a radio and it was 300 dollars! The radio seems to have pretty good reception. Video quality is good enough for a you tube video, I wouldn't really lik...
  • Cons: It locked up on me while listening to the radio and I had to use the reset button. I am not sure if it had something to do with the screensaver that I enabled. I turned it off, so we shall see....

Cheap, nice audio, cute

Anonymous, Newegg
11 April 2009
  • Summary: Even though I listed several cons, they are all minor. The fact that I got it for less than half the retail price makes it an awesome buy.
  • Pros: Surprisingly good audio quality for such a cheap little unit! File transfer is easy...you DON'T need the software or WMP 11 to add mp3s. Just drag and drop! Rechargeable battery is a plus...my previous mp3 player ran on a AA and I got sick of changing it all the time. I wasn't even looking for pi...
  • Cons: Construction seems a little weak. It's already getting scratches on the plastic. Although I will admit I tend to abuse my mp3 players. Headphone jack is touchy, I hope it doesn't die on me. Earbuds that came with it hurt my ears. But then, I've NEVER seen an mp3 player come with good headphones. ...

Piece of Junk

Anonymous, Newegg
10 April 2009
  • Summary: Again, you get what you pay for.
  • Pros: Cheap - but you get what you pay for. Video looks good, it used to sound good.
  • Cons: The menu is kinda annoying to use. Left headphone stopped working after two months. I thought it was the headset, but it ends up being four different headsets failed to work all on the left side. Cannot be fixed.

awsome deal

lynn w., Newegg
6 April 2009
  • Summary: great service from new egg and it got shipped on time just like they said and came in great condition
  • Pros: great interface nice shinny display does need a screen protector just to avoid scratches and dust good radio reception and great price cant beat that and as others have said you dont need windows media player to load this one up just open up the music folder and drag and drop your new music to it...
  • Cons: well not to many cons for this one but i have a few one of the buttons sticks a bit but its tolarable and so far the fact of finding my music is a little annoying but im sure i can make it work other than that just a great little player

Decent Player

Robert C., Newegg
4 April 2009
  • Summary: Some have complained about the headphone jack being crappie. I doesn't seem too bad to me but I don't abuse things either no saying anyone else was just saying I am careful with it. For the price you really can't go wrong if you need a little radio for working out or cleaning around the house.
  • Pros: This is a nice player overall. I with there was an EQ somewhere in there and there may be I just haven't found it yet. The video demo on it looks really nice but I don't know if I will ever use it for video I just wanted a cheap replacement to my Sansa Clip which by the way is an awesome player i...
  • Cons: No EQ that I know of. Bigger then a Sansa clip and no way to hang it on your waist so it has to go in your pocket.

AMAZING for the price

Joshua N., Newegg
26 March 2009
  • Summary: I bought this as a 'cheap' MP3/video player to use while running, etc... Something I could use and abuse, and not be worried about breaking it. I've had this thing for 3 months and so far its still kicking, despite my abusing it horribly.
  • Pros: AMAZING price Decent storage size Small, simple to use Decent internal radio Decent battery life for the price/size (about 3 hours of video and about 10 hours for mp3s)
  • Cons: As with most cheap MP3 players it has a very annoying 'mandatory' upload software. For MP3s you can actually avoid the software by manually dragging and dropping songs into the player. By my clock this takes 1/4 the time to upload using the software. For movie files unfortunetly you must use the ...

Defjerm

Jerm D., Newegg
20 March 2009
  • Summary: i recommend this product. newegg has excellent service and constantly updated my info so i knew where it was and when id get it. very good value.
  • Pros: This is an awesome little mp3 player. 1st i read cons in other peoples reviews and several of them said it had low batt life.. no way i fell to sleep with it on and woke up to find that it hadnt even knocked off a bar of the battery indicator. most mp3 players ive owned would be atleast half dead...
  • Cons: it didnt come with a protective transparent piece of plastic for the screen.. i bought a cheap 20 dollar cell phone and even that came with the plastic covering..to bad.. also the keys feel like a few months down the line they will be falling out or something..

Failed

Douglas S., Newegg
19 March 2009
  • Summary: I have never had any other problems with my computer. Nor have I ever had a problem with a product I've purchased from Newegg before. I like Newegg, but buyers beware of this product. Unless you want to have to rely on WMP 11, don't buy it.
  • Pros: FM radio
  • Cons: Could not load any music onto the unit. This unit requires you to use WMP 11 to download your music. Whenever I attempted to sync to the player to WMP 11, it would crash. I would get that error message with the dialogue box that gives option to either "send" or "don't send" the error report to mi...
