Summary: Pros: Small, Portable, Lightweight, Good sound. Cons: The micro chip section never did work correctly, The neck attachment is a joke for any type of active use (walking / jogging), It stopped working after 1 month. Final analysis: I guess this would be fine to record business meetings or sermons at church, but I certainly wouldn't recommend it for a listening device while doing an activity.
Summary: I bought two of these the first one the buttons stuck. I bought the second because I thought it was my fault it broke. Well now the second one won't turn on.Sandisk customer service is useless. Save your time and money don't buy this.
Summary: Great Player. I love everything about it, except that you have to buy a cover separately that has a clip if you want to attach it to your clothes etc. although it does come with a lanyard that attaches and you can hold or put around your neck. For the price you can't beat it. I bought 2 of them. C.
Summary: I have had this item for about four weeks. For the first week it worked fine. Then one night while clicking to play a song the screen went black and the item would not turn back on. I tried 3 different computers and none of them would recognize the player's existence. I put the MP3 player in a desk drawer with the intention of returning the item for a refund. Each day I would try to turn the item on hoping it would magically start working again.
Summary: As advertised this would be the greatest portable player for use in the gym..small, lightweight, decent size memory of 2 GB, can be used with Rhapsody service, FM radio.. I bought this player about 4 months ago to use with my Rhapsody subscription, easy to use, very lightweight however the software updater never worked correctly, every time I plugged it in to USB port on my pc the software would tell me there was an update and it always failed to install.
Summary: Really like this unit. Bought as a gift (I've actually given two as a gift now) for people who need something basic. Great size, really nice OLED screen that is easy to read and bright even in daylight,sound quality is and the main thing is how easy to use it is. Plug it right into the computer without the need for any cables or special software, and operation is about as simple as can be.
Summary: This is a great product for portability and ease of use. Been looking for a MP3 player that was small, portable and able to plug in with standard USB and not require some propietary connection. It is unfortunate that they discontinued this product, however Sandisk continues to make great MP3 products and memory sticks. For the cost of the product, this is a winner.
Owned 2+ years and still looks and works like new!

Summary: First, let me say that I've owned this MP3 player since July 2007. I traveled across the world for a year with it, I use it daily in the gym, and I've connected it to large computer speakers for various poker nights and parties. The little thing has fantastic quality, and I use it and abuse it heavily. It went through the wash once and came out fine. Many of the negative reviewers seem to have problems with the firmware pre-installed on this device.
