Summary: This was such a great player. I put it in a pouch and listened to library book CD's and cleaned, walked to work etc. It was wonderful and I did drop it a few times and it was fine and then I dropped it in the bathroom on the hard tile and that was the end of it. Such a shame.
Summary: I bought this used for use on backpacking trips. Yes, Ipods are lighter, better, etc. but I am "Old School". I have a huge collection of "All Hits" CD's and wanted to bring them with on solo backpack trips.
