Summary: The only time I use a personal player is when I am working out. For that purpose this inexpensive device does the job. It is true that I find the controls baffling and I will never fully master it.
Summary: I love this mp3 player, it's hardy, water-resistant, and super user-friendly. The 2MB is plenty of space, plus at $35 it's very affordable. I bought a $50 mp3 to upgrade from my RCA 1MB player and returned to RCA (upon finding a 2 MB option, it also has a way to expand memory).
Summary: This MP3 has driver update that is supposed to address the problem related to the microphone's lack of sensitivity. However, there is no noticable difference after installing the upgrade. You can hardly hear anything recorded, even with max volume.
Summary: I purchased this item with the intention of recording my professors at school and some additional studies I am involved in. It's a fair purchase for the price. The manual is a download, this is okay, but when you can't figure something out and you can't find it in the manual, it becomes frustrating.
Summary: Great price for the capacity, but the design is stupid inside and out. You can put files in separate folders but the player will just play everything in alphabetical order anyway. If you turn it off in the middle of a file, it starts back up at the beginning.
Summary: Got it as a gift to someone but feel that it is missing some very basic features or updates. Pros: + AAA battery so no need to buy any expensive batteries later on or recharging problems + good size + basic mp3 players + has support for ebooks + provides voice recording support Cons: - you cannot...
Summary: Although I have another MP3 player, I pulled out my old RCA recently*, and noted how easy it is to load with the USB port. The other MP3 player has a proprietary connection that I've got to go find in order to use it, and it is always in sync mode and/or shutting off while doing file transfers.
Summary: All in all this is a pretty decent mp3 player that uses a AAA battery. You can add up to a 2GB SD card, but that's it. It will not support any SD HC cards. So you're max'd out at 4GB. (or at least until RCA updates the firmware to support it)
