Great Features and No Gripes


There are GREAT things to be said for this player. First off, it holds so much music for it's price range. You get roughly the same space as a DVD (about 125mb of that 5gb is used for system). Sound quality is great, you can customize the equalizer if...

Good player

Good player


The player over-all is good. The joystick-style navigator is okay, it's easy to press a button you didn't mean to. The only other downside I've seen to this player is you can't browse music by the folder you've copied it over as. You only have options...
