Summary: I purchased this AWESOME product 5 years ago and I have NOT been disappointed from any aspect. I have approximately 320 songs loaded and they all play just fine. I have dropped the device numerous times and despite hard falls, it still plays and sounds great!!!
Summary: Pros: 1. Battery operated. I don't like rechargeable MP3 players because I don't want to plug into to computer or outlet all the time. I just carry AAA rechargeable batteries and replace it whenever the battery goes out. 2. Small enough to fit in your pocket. iPhone is too big when I run or workout.
Summary: After many challenging hours to the service lady helping me search through mp3 players, I bought this one. It was easy to use, download songs to, and lasted many wonderful years. I have one now that, after using the Pearl, seems like a dinosaur and has none of the simple features that the Pearl did.
Summary: Good software support, my second one didn't store my favs but overall its a good product. the menu and selector buttons got jacked on my first one so I bought another.. its got return customer appeal.. easy to use.
Picked it up at Menards, been through two in the past year or two...

Summary: I got this MP3 player at Menards for $27, and, despite the horrible reviews (most of which are right), the product doesn't suck. I use it mostly for listening to the radio and the many recordings I have made from it.
TH1702 and TH2002RDR are the Best MP3 Devices RCA ever made

Summary: My severe autistic teenage son is a lot calmer when he listens to music. But he likes it loud, and listens at all hours day or night, as many autistic people do. We bought this for him because it has several features which are great for kids (and even adults): PROS: 1) Uses a single AAA battery,...
THE PERFECT PLAYER FOR ME (I CAN'T IMAGINE A FINER ONE)

Summary: RCA TH1702 WAS THE PINNACLE OF THE RCA PEARL SYSTEM. WITH EXC. SOUND, FILE ACCESSIBILITY, AWESOME BATTERY LIFE, EASE OF USE, DURABILITY, AND FM RADIO. THIS HAS BEEN MY MP3 PLAYER DAILY FAVORITE FOR 5+ YEARS. SADLY, THINGS HAVE TO CHANGE. NOW, I HAVE 3 SPARES. FOR ABOUT 15 BUCKS, IT CAN'T BE BEAT.
Summary: Although this mp3 player works fine it does not remember its position after powering off. This makes it worthless for audio books. It also has an arcane menu system that makes no sense at all. RCA technical support is worthless.
Summary: This seeming primitive player has much in its favour, so much so that it's my main item. Its built-in USB connector means i can load up podcasts from whatever computer i happen to be on. Ditto for the drag-and-drop -- no special software required.
