Summary: This is a simple and intuitive player. My 11 year old son was able to work it from the start without directions. The available soft cover accessory is a good idea if you plan to buy this for a kid.
Summary: I bought this refurbished mp3 player a few months ago and didn't open and use it for a few months. Mistake. During the initial music loading process, it went into a music refresh cycle which lasted several hours before I turned it off. Now after repeated attempts, it turns on and freezes. It is not recognized by several different computers I tried and so I can't reinstall the firmware. I went online and tried all of the suggested fixes.
Summary: I have one on the charger and one usually in my ears. I use it for audio books, music , radio, almost all day long. I did have one literally melt down and almost cause a fire but it was quickly replaced by Amazon.
Summary: It is an mp3 and fm radio in one. I bought it for the radio. The reception is not the best, it does not have an external antenna. I use it in an office and for some stations I have to hang the radio high up to get better reception.
Excerpt: This purchase replaced a previous version of the clip player and I'm very pleased with it. I think this is my third one. I use it for exercise and after a year or two it stops working, so I replace it. That's my only complaint. Maybe if you just stuff it in your pocket all of the time it will last longer.
Summary: Don't think they have very good quality control. I received it, charged it per instructions and was unable to get it to work. You get what you pay for. I just took the $ 20.00 loss, and threw it in my junk drawer!
Summary: Understand this was reconditioned and appreciate seller for answering my email for concern I couldn't get the player to hold a charge while connected to my computer AND followed the suggestion that it needed to be charged direct from an electrical outlet. That didn't work either.
Summary: The battery life less than one hour. I The ear buds wires pulled out on one bud. I threw them away. They are not worth twenty bucks. I don't usually buy things that are remanufactured for this reason. I finally threw all of it into the trash. I'm done buying things online. If I had bought this at a store I would have gotten a refund. I would not recommend this product to anyone.
