Summary: I've had one of these for the past four years, and it worked like a charm in all that time until it finally began freezing up. When I'd power it on, it would stick and not do anything. The first few times, I simply reformatted it and that solved the problem. But it finally stopped working, even after several attempts at reformatting. Not a bad life span for such an inexpensive item.
Summary: Started out fine with this...but as the months went by it got worse and worse. Now the sound is terrible. Not too happy with it. Doing research now on purchasing another. Have had this since Dec. 2009...only 8 months of use.
