Summary: I guess you get what you pay for... the unit is at a good price for the storage... but the unit frequently freezes up... If you skip thru the songs too quickly the unit freezes, the unit keeps playing the song but you can't access the menu, the volume or change the song for about 20 seconds, sometimes the unit will freeze completly and you have to hold down the power on button for about 30 seconds to get the unit to shut off and restart...
Summary: I purchased this mp3 player for my wife who casually listens to music. Needless to say, the players tends to freeze up. Also, the storage space listed appears to be less than it should be. There are barely 400 songs and this has eaten up 10gb? If you charge from a different computer it takes an extremely long time to synchronize. Not happy with the product.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Long Battery Life, Simple Controls
Summary: you cannot bet the price of this item for 16GB.In regular store you can purchase for $200 & over.This is my second purchase of electronic products in overstock.first i purchased sansa 8gb but got the wrong model.2nd this 16 GB purchase for my husband,I like the features but the only complaint is:battery only last for an hour and it freeze sometimes when yuo scroll and look for a song titiles.has a "REBURB" on the back which really doesnt bother me at all.will return this...
Summary: Have had it for 2 weeks and can't get it to sync properly with anything. First it wouldn't show up on the computer, downloaded firmware update and still had problems. It's supposed to be Vista compatible but if you are using Vista you can't use Rhapsody with which the View is bundled. I have worked on this for 2 weeks and still can't find a music manager that will work with the View. Have tried Winamp, WMP, Rhapsody, Media Jukebox, none work.
Pros: Lots of Storage, Simple Controls, Sleek/Compact
Cons: Difficult to Set Up, Does not work with Vista, TERRIBLE TECH SUPPORT
Summary: I looked at the iPod and other players before landing on this one. Within an hour of downloading music, the screen froze and it would not respond at all. I tried tunring it off and back on many times. I tried charging it. Nothing worked. The next day it worked fine. That lasted a week. Then it stopped playing again...none of the songs would play...just a "Bad Track" error on the screen. I decided to return it and try again.
