Great Sound - Very BAD Battery Life

 

I received the Gateway DMP-310 MP3 player as a Christmas gift. Upon initial use, although advertised as a 256MB player, I could only download approx. 150MB of music before the unit would not accept any more data. I reformatted the unit and was able to ...

Great sound reproduction

No way near the storage space advertised. Very bad battery life. Difficult controls

Inexpensive for a 256MB player

Decent recording quality.Convenient to carry.Easy to download from, and upload to device

Controls are hard to use, especially when in case.Uploaded files stored in randomized order

Not very good

 

I received one for Christmas and so far not too impressed. The main button toggle does not work well (no it is not me...). A single button controls power, pause/play, fwd/rev track, and the volume. Sometimes when I want it to go to the next track it ...

Small, neck strap, light

Terrible terrible terrible button interface. Batteries die for no reason. FM is nonexistent
