Summary: Works well for the price. If I need another one, I would purchase this again. I added a 16GB micro SD card, to fit all the music I want to listen to. Easy to move music files from computer to the player. Radio reception is just ok. Tried different headphones to work as the antenna. Could only pick up a few stations, having to move the wire around. Good thing I spend most of the time listening to my own music. Best things about this player: * Battery life is good.
Summary: This is by far the most infuriating music device I've had. There is no easy way to sync your existing playlists onto the device. The manual offers no help whatsoever since it is only a start up guide that tells you what each button does. It is a great device if you want something for radio or storage, but it is difficult to navigate and there is no way to play and shuffle all of the songs at once.
Summary: A great product and one of the best mps/fm systems for the price and quality. I still own the last models that's made with metal and it's still keeping a full charge and working great also. A MUST BUY!
Transcend TS8G MP870 (white): Could be excellent with a few tweaks

Summary: This device is a combination of some features that are truly excellent, and other that are equally frustrating. The GOOD: sounds good and offers several enhancements, including one user customizable setting; decent battery life, though only about 75% of what's advertised (inflated claims for battery life is the norm throughout the industry); functional gel case that stays on well, and does its job; drag and drop for tracks that doesn't require "iTunes" or "Windows Media...
Summary: I purchased a 4gb 840 model from Transcend about 6 or 7 years ago and it had lasted and given me great usage. I'm very pleased to have another very simple and easy to use electronic device for music, which I don't have to fuss with. It's fabulous!
Summary: Background: I bought this player/recorder eight months ago from an Amazon merchant after my iAudio G3 was stolen in a home break-in ... two years after the break-in. I searched that long trying to find a replacement for a device that had 40+ hours playback time on a single AA NiMH battery, recorded not only FM audio and voice audio, but also had a line-in jack for direct transfers and recorded 128Kbps MP3 on the fly, as well as having terrific sound, drag & drop from a...
Summary: This is an incredible machine. I love it. I have several Sony players, which are very good. I also have a good Sandisk which has limitations but I would also recommend it for the versatility, compact size and the price. In the past, I had several Zen players, which I found too large, too pricey, and I never had one that lasted much beyond the warranty period. Of them all, I would take Transcend above them all by far.
