Summary: Excellent product, although many people gave 3 star rating. I find it to be a 5 star product, because it can take rough abuse such as inadvertent-washing in a washing machine and other rough uses.
I've owned one for 5 years and it's still going strong, bought these for the kids.

Summary: Most of the time when they say water resistant they really mean, it will survive a few drops of water for a very short time. I've always thought of my Pico-C as waterproof - I've owned my first Pico-C going on 5 years, and it's still going strong.
