Good player if you can afford to charge it every day and never need to get much battery out of it.

Summary: As many have stated before: the battery life is awful, the player is great. If you can charge it up before you begin the day, you should be OK. But if you're flying halfway around the world, look elsewhere.
Summary: It's a good player. However, the battery life is a bit on the short side. It's kinda funny, in that if the battery indicator is low, and you allow it to keep playing it'll go for quite a while before it shuts down, but if you turn it off it will not turn on again without a charge. Hmm...
Summary: This product worked exceptionally well for me, and was a big improvement from the last mp3 player I had (which inexplicably stopped working entirely, and the jerks at the company dealt me a load of bull on fixing it).
Summary: well im going to have to say i love this mp3 player not only because i hate ipods but also because it has many more features that are very helpfull for one you dont have to pay .99 a song because there are many music options such as urge, napster and many others its a great thing for people that dl...
Summary: The battery on-off button is unlableled and extremely small. It is almost useless. It cannot be operated with fingers. You will need a tool with a very fine point - like a pin and probably a magnifying glass. Otherwise I like this player.
Summary: I got the same hard drive access error as my iPod did; lucky for me, the back siding is so cheap that it was only a few screws holding it together, much easier than my iPod 4G's (I still haven't gotten it open) ... though I bent it in the process (also very easy to do).
Pros: Sleek and sexy looking! Great audio quality and equalizer presets, awesome interface, and everyone thinks it's a Zune so you can get extra attention. ;)
Cons: HORRIBLE back siding - it dents very easily and feels very cheap! Not the advertised battery life, and doesn't work with iTunes.
Summary: I bought this item to replace my Creative Zen Touch. The Gigabeat is easy to interface and sync using Windows Media Player, and I can hook it up to my home stereo system using cords from the box.
Summary: I recieved this as a christmas gift and have been very happy with it. I recommend you update to Media Player 11, it is much easier to manage. My wife has an IPod and I hate the ITunes software.
Summary: I really wanted to love this player. I've read many great reviews about it and so I decided to finally get it. I'm anti-iPod so this seemed to be the best alternative. Coming from an iRiver IHP-120, I expected this to be a huge upgrade after using my iRiver for the past 3 years.
