The GoGear Ariaz may not be an iPod but it plays Metallica all day long

 

I received this budget 8GB mp3 player via the Amazon Vine program one month ago. It is not as nice looking or as useful as an 8GB iPod. However, the sound is quite good and it has all the basic features you need to listen to music or viewing downloaded...

Great sound

 

Great design, ease of use and sound quality. Failed to import my Itunes library without some songs corrupting, but after loading songs using Realplayer instead was perfect.
