Summary: I got this player as an early birthday present from my wife. She ordered it on Nov 1 and I got it the next day using the over night shipping option (great job Amazon). Everything worked well right out the box. The sound was great it synced up with MP11 well. Then out of nowhere, the dog on thing just up and died on me yesterday! It gave me no warning what so ever! I picked it up to load a few new albums on to it that I had just ripped; and the thing wouldn't turn on!
horrible battery long transfer limited video support

Summary: I have had a problem both units I have had from Amazon. No fault of Amazon they have been great during all of this. No questions asked when submitting for the return but each one has had the same promblems. Why would WMV files need to be converted? No Divx support. I even recorded some shows in Windows Media Center Edition and the device wasnt able to read or convert the files from Windows Media Center Edition to the Portable Media Center Edition.
Summary: Very happy for the 1st 3 weeks and then problems started to occur. I put it in my back pocket of my pants and I guess my walking around while listening to it caused some kinda of warping (but MP3 players are built to stand some warping, right?). First the screen died so I can only use the buttons to navigate to play the music. Then the battery would suddenly discharge for no obvious reasons.
