Consumer review by: Victor (bestbuy.ca)

Excellent mp3/mp4 player but not perfect.

 

Works great and the sound quality is excellent if you are using decent headphones. My only complaint is that the battery life could be a little bit better. I also have an Sony Walkman mp3 player that can hold twice as much playback hours.
