Great for the pool, too small for general use

 

I had never purchased an MP3 player before and thought I would start with a small, inexpensive one to learn on and was so happy to discover there were waterproof units available. This is about the cheapest one of the waterproof units on the market...

Compact, easy control access, nice back lit display for such a small unit

memory small, charges only on a computer, doesn't come with an AC outlet charger.

I love it!

 

Finally able to swim with music. Easy, quick, small and light.

Music quality is good, not great, in the water.

My first and my last Oregon Scientific product. When I first uploaded some songs, it said that the disk was full and after unplugged it from the computer it was completely dead. I went to the shop and they gave me another one. This one worked properly ...
