Summary: I bought this MP3 player when I was a high school sophomore. I am now a college senior, and this little thing is still kicking. I admit, I no longer use it for music playing - it records lectures so well, that it's primary function is to record all my classes so I can go over them later in the day.
Worked fine until it it popped apart from the battery swelling

Summary: I had my charging and noticed the case was coming apart and could not be pushed back together. So I took it on apart and found the battery had swollen up so much that it forced the board up and the case apart. It was an OK player while it lasted.
Excerpt: Have you ever thought how boring the world could be without music? I don’t even wanna think about it. I’m gonna go crazy if that happens. So as millions of people around the world who lives with music everyday of our lives. So if you love music that much as …
Summary: This device is just another MP3 player amongst many but with some flaws. The size is fine for the small price of under 20 bucks but nothing higher. There is a bug in the device that after so long its not accessible via usb to computer. to fix this you need to update its firmware.
Summary: After only a few weeks, the device is working well so far. The only real problem that we've had we were able to work around. I tried to follow the instructions for loading music using Windows Media Player per the instructions.
Summary: The USB is much easier than F'n around with a USB cable to charge or sync. I think the blue l.e.d. light for the clear cap is fun and you can program it to off/random/ or when pushing buttons. The screen is small which is why I think it can be tricky to navigate the songs.
Summary: This is my first MP3 player, very simple to use. I received it as a Christmas gift. I had it for about 3 months and I too was having problems with my computer recognizing it. I called the 800 Samsung number, got to speak with a real person right away.
Summary: Same as most of these other reviews. I owned it for 2 1/2 months, my computer no longer reads it. There is a tone when i plug it in signifying its plugged in and two seconds later the same tone sounds and the screen shuts off on the player. I can not add/remove/or view any files on the player now.
