Summary: This unit worked ok for a few weeks except for the fact that if you wanted to ff or rewind, it would go about 45min in 5 seconds in audiobook. So say if you wanted to rewind 5 minutes you will end up overrewinding then overfastforwarding then overrewinding until you just give up. Then one day the sound stopped coming out of one earpiece, I thought it was the headphones, nope its the cheaply made rca unit. Guess I should've kept the receipt.
Crappy sound because you can only use the RCA earphones

Summary: Although the device is easy to use and works great, the only earphones that you can use with the device are the ones that come with the unit. All other earphones do not fit into the unit and you have horrendous sound quality. The earphones that come with the sit in the outlet, but they are just as bad. Do not buy this until that is fixed.
Summary: A year ago, I purchased this item, so I could replace a portable CD player at work. I liked this mp3 player because it had the USB port and I didn't need to worry about a connector to my computer. The battery wasn't a problem for me either, I bought rechargeable ones and a charger for them. It was easy enough to use for my first time with an mp3 player, but alas I was fooled.
Summary: I have been fighting with this mp3 player for a couple years (I alternate use with my ipod), and I finally have decided to just buy a new one. First off, the RCA program to manage your music etc runs poorly. The window is chopped off at the side, it's difficult to navigate and generally frustrating. The player itself is difficult to browse on. I do like the USB port built in, as we have ports on the front of our tower.
Summary: I chose this mp3 player because of its ability to record songs from the radio, download songs onto it and also to be able to voice record, but what I am not happy about is that the space isn't enough for anyone who wants to download a lot of music or use the fm record or voice record feature. I still like this mp3 player because of its capabilities and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a decent mp3 player to start with.
Summary: Where to begin: 1. The battery bulge in the back prevents you from using the device with a laptop with any sort of convienence. It basically prevents you from inserting the player into the usb slot if your laptop is on a desk or any sort of hard surface. You know, the things that most people keep their laptops on. 2. Uses AAA batteries, not rechargable. 3. With the default settings it does not play many common file formats. 4. It does a terrible job importing track data.
Summary: The best little MP3 player that I have ever seen and owned. More than just music, keeps up to i-pods with the built in FM radio, Audiobooks and even Graphic Equalizer for the best sound of the type of music listen to.
Summary: There is a reason this MP3 player is under $50. My 8 year old received one for his birthday last month and it's even frustrating him. First of all, as everyone else has mentioned, the music is horribly jumbled. It is nearly impossible to find what you're looking for without wanting to throw the thing out the window. Although it is supposed to support playlists, we have so far been unable to get any to load on the player.
