Summary: When I bought this, we too thought the r stood for refurbished not Rhapsody. We didn't use the service and would like to have the option of bypassing Rhapsody. Other than that, it is a very good device, and this is our third purchase of one, but may be our last.
Feel in love w/the features I bought another one to replace my old one!!

Summary: I like this player, because you can record not only voice recordings, but my favorite, fm recordings. I use this when I hear a song on the radio that I like. It has great internal storage, and an additional sd slot, where you can add even more storage to your player.
Summary: I have had quite a few mp3 players and I have to say that this has been my favorite. I love that it has ample room for files with the additional room from a memory card, the radio that picks up surprisingly well, voice recorder and excellent battery life.
Summary: When I bought this, I thought the r stood for refurbished not Rhapsody. I don't use the service and have found that the operating system uses a great deal of the memory, over 2GB. Other than that, it is a very good device.
A relative good option but not designed for a non-Windows user

Summary: In a nutshell, this is a quite good MP3 plays. I have owned a number of MP3 players over the years and this one is one of the best. However, if you using Linux (and possibly other non-Windows OSs) this is NOT a good option. Advantages: - Good battery life.
Summary: Works Great! The web site has a converter you need. You have to tell your browser that you will accept that page, then it will download. With that you can load pictures and short movies clips or you tube videos. Music plays well, but the quality is sometimes poor.
