Would not recommend to anyone


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.....

A genuine value.


For $8 you get a lot of hardware and capability. The recorded voice and downloaded music audio quality is quite respectable. I've even used it to transport some small data files between computers. You get the MP3,earbuds, a Win98 install disk (if you...

Excellent, especially for the price


These can be seen as either pros or cons: The screen is biased, but that way you can increase/decrease the brightness without having to go into settings, just angle it slightly to the left or right. You can skip forward/backwards in a song/video and...

The controls are easy to learn and are a lot faster than most other controls I've used. You don't even need to see the player to turn the volume up/down, go to the next/previous song, play/pause. Turning it on and off is very simple, just switch the...

The explorer does not alphabetize the folders (different from the medialib). The screen attracts fingerprints. I got a screen overlay to help with that. Some computers (so far it's only with Vista) the battery charge animation does not display, so I...

Good concept, poor execution. good for the money though, i just don't think its worth the risk again, so im not going off brand anymore! San disk here i come!

Nice screen, light weight, built in speaker, 8 gigs, (plus expandable memory) ; good concept, but needs alot of work still

Speakers were blown out when i received them, the volume + button didn't work, the user interface is obscenely over complicated, the micro sd card feature needs alot of work and ; The over all feeling of it seems...flimsy

Great value


The Menu button has two functions depending on how long you hold it. The Directions say press briefly to select or play, press and hold to go up the menu tree. On the press-and-hold the menu-up does not occur until you release the button. So really it...

PROS: Good sound, FM reception, at $55 is cheap for 8 gigs and what it can do. Good color and sharpness on video and photos

CONS: Cumbersome menu structure, tiny type, painful buttons, video converter is hard to use and limited in types it can handle
