Nextar MA715 1 GB Digital Media Player, a Review

Nice Unit


I use this in the gym fits in my pocket very light. The price is awesome!

Basic mp3 player, just drag and drop your files and you are good to go. 1 battery lasts for a while I like that I do not have to deal with recharging

No cons for an inexpensive mp3 this is not an Ipod you get what you pay for...if you want to drag drop your old mp3 into a portable unit this is for you

It worked after I put on my glasses


Overall good bang to buck ratio and I want to buy more of these as presents for relatives, especially if shipping can be combined. At this price I am seriously considering selling audiobooks already recorded on the players--in addition to downloads,...

Cheap, arrived fast and works on rechargeable AAA batteries, lightweight, good volume, simple control once I learnt to push the menu button. Works with the Philips wraparound headsets I prefer. Happy camper here, using it to edit an audio book

Hard-to-open package, would not play till I read the microscopic print and tried the menu button which activated the folder containing the mp3s. No attached plug, so you have to use a cable, and the string that lets you secure it comes attached to the...

Its a 2 gb MP3 player


Bought this for my wife because we lost our old Sony 2gb walkman, and needed a cheap replacement. My wife is very low tech and the Sony was a little complicated for her and she didnt use all the extra features Sony included. With this mp3 player all...

For starters this is a very cheap unit. Uses 1 AAA battery, which is nice, instead of always having to constantly recharge. Navigation of songs and CDs is fairly uncomplicated. Backlight works great and easy to read display. Worked right of the box

Took nearly 4 hours to download 2 GB of data. Manual says USB 2.0 but I have had faster downloads over a 56k modem ; this is listed in error. The buttons sometimes stick and causes you to occasionally over shoot the track or folder your looking for....

Great for the Price


This is a good player for $20.00. It's essentially a 2GB Flash drive with a built-in mp3 player. My XP and Win 7 systems recognized it immediately as a removable flash drive (usb 2.0 HS). Just drag and drop folders and files. File transfers are slow,...

Cheap ; Plug-n-Play- No drivers or other software needed to transfer files. (Win 98 requires USB Driver.) ; Decent sound quality ; You can browse the folders directly on the player

Can't browse folders while music is playing- have to pause first ; Folders and Files are listed in the order they were transferred ; No way to sort music by artist, album, genre, etc ; Random play mode only uses current folder ; Slow transfer speeds....

Garbage - stay away


Read the 'standard return policy' before you buy.

None - there is nothing good about ths piece of junk ; It doesn't rate even the one egg I gave it - but you have to give it something to submit a review - this is pure Chinese junk

First off, a brand new unit did not work. The buttons used to navigate the menus did not navigate diddly - no way to even play your music. 2nd - the menu is so small and unreadable, you need a magnifying glass to make out what you're looking at. Next -...

I wanted something for a plane trip. After trying severla times to load music on it from 2 different computers, it said that the music was there but when I went to play it back, there was nothing there so I slept on the plane.....

You get what you pay for


This MP3 player is the best thing you can give your kids. If you are the type of person that has the bad luck of breaking gadgets, well, this one is for you too. This is a very inexpensive, working mp3 player. Besides the fact you can use it as...
