Summary: This is a small player that travels well. It cames with all the accessories you need for the basics. I haven't been able to find any ad on accessories like case, armband, etc. The external speaker volume is not the best, but the headphone sound is very good. The USB cord made uploading to this very easy. Be sure to read the directions -- you have to do more than push the on button to start.
It is ok, but the battery dies after about 3 hours.

Summary: I got this to replace one I lost for work. I used to use the zen for 8 hours straight. This one dies after about 3 hours. Easy to use and a good deal for the price but not what i was looking for.
