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.
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. There are many online tutorials to resolve this, just research the model number and firmware update. Should be about 9 steps.
Summary: The size and sound quality are the best features. The LCD display is small but crisp and the navigation is just OK. It takes a long time to find files you want to play once you start loading the unit up. I like that you can slow down or speed up the play speed, it's nice for audio books and that sort of thing. the FM is OK, not great at tuning but the sound quality is very nice. I do not like the Microsoft Media Player interface, it's quirky and doesn't always work.
Summary: Note: These nifty little players are also advertised as a "USB Drive" but only as long as Windows Media Player 10 is installed. Windows does not see this as a USB drive, but as a Mobile Device. So unless the machine you plug this into has Windows Media Player 10 on it, don't expect to be able to plug into any machine and be able to transfer files to it.
Summary: I've had this digital audio player for about two months, and for the most part, I've been satisfied with it. I chose it because it was inexpensive yet had packed into its small and seemingly rugged body a wide variety of capabilities: FM radio, audio recording, and multiple format music playback. It's easy to load music onto it, takes only a short time to power up, and the instrument interface is easy to use. However, the screen quality is very low.
Excerpt: "I was very happy with the player until is stopped working after 9 months. Now it is completely dead. I used it at work every day, and the only real problem I had was that you cannot listen to music while charging it up. Good points 1) Good sound quality (good enough for me, anyway!) 2) FM radio reception OK (at least on strong BBC stations) 3) Can be used as a USB flash drive for files as well as music 4) Charges via USB - so all you need ...
Pros: Small and convenient, lots of useful options and features
Cons: May not last very long . Need to buy better earphones

Summary: Ich habe den Stick jetzt seit knapp zwei Wochen und bin eigentlich ganz zufrieden. Gut gelungen ist das übersichtliche und intuitiv erschließbare Menue. Meistens sinnvolle Begriffe führen durch die Bedienung. Bisher habe ich noch nie den Akku "leergedudelt" (6 bis 7 Stunden ohne Probleme), also ist es nicht so schlimm, dass keine Batterien sondern eben ein festeingebauter Akku als Stromquelle dient.
Excerpt: Questo lettore Mp3 mi è stato regalato, e se avessi dovuto comprarlo probabilmente ne avrei comprato un'altro. Tutto sommato non posso lamentarmi. Il mio ha 1gb (ci sono anche da 512 e 2gb). Il menu è semplice da navigare. Naturalmente è dotato di presa usb e inoltre ha la funzione voice recorder (utile per gli studenti universitari come me che non devono correre dietro al professore per prendere appunti mentre spiega). Il sonoro è abbastanza buono. ...
