"I have had 2 of these, great only short term...."
16 February 2011
Pros: I LOVE love love the simplicity. The menu is easy, it doesn't take long to charge, it's pretty sturdy (I tend to drop things often) and the wheel worked great.
Cons: The MP3 was lovely for about 4-6 months, then it started failing. I would get a fuzzy or white screen, the volume would rise by itself (REALLY! I had it on mute and it still was too loud for me). The menu and wheel buttons started malfunctioning...
Pros: The price to feature ratio is very good! Supports many different audio formats and has expandable memory. Large screen looks nice and bright. Micro usb connection is a plus I use my phone charger to charge the unit in the car. Feels light yet solid in the hand. Sound quality and eq are good. Volume output is nice for such a small unit, its able to power my 40mm headphones quite well. Battery life is also good. Id say R&D did a good job in the hardware department, I re...
Cons: There is no menu looping, so when you get to the last menu, you then have to swipe all the way back to get to the first menu. The settings menu it is awful. Simple actions such as enabling or disabling repeat and shuffle are buried away in sub menus yet options that you would usually adjust once and leave are in the main settings menu! The shuffle setting is also bad, the option to shuffle is listed at the top of every menu within the music menu. Its nice to have it r...
Pros: Easy to use, good sound quality, video's were nice and crisp. Good price too (bought x-mas 2008 for $100 from Best Buy)
Cons: Quality is a bit lacking. I've had 3 so far, 2 worked good for about 3-4 months and then broke down, one the wheel stopped turning, the other the battery is 100% dead. The other one was a refurbished piece of **** replacement that never worked.
Summary: Do not Buy this product. I was looking for an alternative to a new iPod nano and I thought that this was a great deal. Boy was I mistaken!!!. I received this product and it works fine. But it does not have any software, and for someone like me who has a messy music library, lt it is basically useless. It will only read Mp3s, that means that anything you have downloaded off a CD , will not work.
Summary: I really liked this player until after loading over 600 songs onto it and 5 days after getting it, it decided it didn't want to work anymore. I picked this player because of the quality of my first Sansa player, and because it had a one year warranty but unfortunately I must have gotten a lemon.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Great Sound, Simple Controls, Sleek/Compact
Cons: Not enough amplification, Short Battery Life
