Ok product for a disposable mp3 for biking/running
1 December 2011
Summary: Pluses: battery (good for backcountry, no computer or car required), but short life for AAAs. Good sound quality. Love the radio (I'd use my ipod more if it had a radio!). Easy to manage files from computer. Minuses: Menu doesn't allow use of filenames. No bookmarking. Too easy to skip vs fast forward or reverse. Plastic feels frail.
Summary: It works as an MP3 player and the actual hardware and software rendering of sound is spot on. But as a functional object, it's got flaws. The tiny storage capacity and quirky button layout will eventually frustrate you. It's easy to press the wrong button in your pocket, and then you have to pull it out to see what you did wrong. Spend a little more money and get something nicer, i.e. more functional.
Summary: While the sound quality and portability of this product is great, the thin little buttons are extremely difficult to press, making switching songs and albums a pain (literally). I would not recommend this product for that reason alone. I regret buying it because using it has become a very frustrating experience.
Summary: This was my first mp3. Its battery life is pretty good and you wont find yourself changing its batteries after a trip to the gym. i have the blue model but that doesnt change anything. the screen is a little dark and dull so no videos for you.if i were you i would keep searching for an mp3.
Summary: I have used this for a maybe a year now. The only problem I have is if I deleted files, the player would have brain fade and not work properly. When I add files, I do not delete any until it gets unwieldy. Then I delete all the files and am required to re-format the player before I add any new ones. I had to get help to do a re-format since it wasn't covered properly in the instruction book.
Summary: I owned the 512mb version of this mp3 for several years and loved it and decided to get one with more memory. This one is just as easy to use but when I turn it on it takes a few seconds longer to power on than my old one. It also is a bit slower moving through songs. Some of the songs don't sound crystal clear when playing but I don't know if that's because of the source file, the mp3 player or my headphones (I'm using my own)although I never had this problem with my...
Summary: I bought this one to replace the iRiver T10 that mysteriously stopped working last week. It was okay, but I sent it back the next day because I couldn't turn the sound down low enough. It went from sort-of loud to mute with one click. Not what I wanted. Looked easy to use, which is good because the instruction manual is at the "see spot run" level. Never could figure out how to store FM presets.
Summary: This is my first MP3 player. My husband helped me figure out that I needed to load CDs first to my computer, and then back to the player to get them into the proper format - not as easy as "drop and drag" as the instructions (online) say. I'm pleased with it overall, but I bought it for music and audiobooks (primarily Overdrive from my local library).
Summary: I had a few issues with this player when I got it, but I'm liking it more as I use it. It comes with no software or instructions. You have to look it all up online. Had to get Windows Media Player 11 to download anything to it. Nothing else seemed to work. The case it comes in with the band isn't the greatest - it flops around on your arm - but it's easy to use. If it continues to behave itself I think I'll keep it.
Summary: It was very easy to use and to download music onto, but everything was automatically downloaded alphabetically by title. I wanted a player that I could put both music and audio books onto, but there are no folders to seperate the audio books from the music. The audio book titles were all mixed in with the music.
