Summary: It's a shame that this mp3 has an incredible poor battery life, because the radio is nice and it has some cool features and design. The battery hardly lasts 3 hours, that's why I give it only 2 stars.
Summary: This mp3 has been pure disappointment. I have gone through so many batteries that I could have probably purchased an ipod by now. Even with the high quality Energizer Lithium batteries, it doesn't last long. The arm band also fell apart on me, with the plastic piece breaking off. The mp3 player came with no written instructions, all inquiries have to be read online. I have also had problems with the player not saving music that I download onto it.
Summary: Stoped working after 2 months. I only used the radio and liked the presets. However it now has a demon and when you plug in the head phones it turns off or does weird scanning. But it doesn't work. It also used a Battery every four hours or so I bought rechargables but it was to much of a hassle.
Summary: Pros: Great design for the gym Good radio reception Built-in stopwatch Very inexpensive Cons: Bad battery life Only compatible for sync with WMP 10 (not the newest) Very difficult to add a play list Overall, I like it just because of the great design and ease of use while exercising. This MP3 player is the reason why I started using rechargeable batteries.
Summary: I love the size of this player and it's easy to use features. However, the main problem I encountered was downloading purchased songs to it. It kept freezing up and scanning through all the songs without playing them. I bought several songs from Rhapsody that I wanted to put on my mp3. Even though Rhapsody songs are listed as being compatible with this device,...no such luck.
Summary: I have used this MP3 and find it fairly easy to use although the cradle for the player is difficult to seat the player itself into without hitting the buttons on the side. Other then that inconvenience it works very well.
Summary: I use mine when I am on the tredmill or when I jog. The battery life is not that bad and if you register it when you first get it they will replace the back if it falls off. I like it and I only paid $60 for it. Not for the hardcore music fan.
Summary: I am like one of the other reviewers. I wanted to like this mp3 player but it is so terrible. I wish I would have held out for the Sony or Ipod. I bought this because it was on the cheaper side and I thought Philips would have been a good brand to have.It works sometimes and this is the longest it has been that it hasn't worked at all. The radio worked but I can't play any of the files I have on it. It is by no means user friendly.
