Good sound quality, good function

 

You do not need to use the included yahoo music software to transfer music to/from this drive. Using Windows XP, open the device to explore. You will see three folders (don't tamper with their structure). One of the folders is "music." You can drag and...

Sound quality is indeed excellent. EQ settings will help you set one that is perfect for you - I find them all to be good. 5 GB is plenty of track time. Small size is very cool (Girlfriend says she likes how it fits in her pocket). The price is...

Try using it with different headphones of your choice. They will be more comfortable and probably have better sound (in other words don't judge sound quality by the stock earbuds it comes with). Song capacity is different according to bit rate of your...

Meh...

 

Ok, so it's 50$ you get what you pay for, still could have figured a different way to charge it and a little more options.

Price, Functional, 5GB

Well, first of all, charging is poor, it's USB charged, and when you connect the USB the device will turn on, you have to hold the button until it goes into charge mode. Which in turn will charge an hour at a time and turn off. Battery life is...

Great For The Price

 

This player is great for the price with its 5 gigs. Easy to use. Good options and nice settings. Got this in 2 days with a 3 day ups shipping. And as always Newegg rocks

For some reason my battery life is only lasting up to 4 hours on continuous play. It also stops charging after so many minutes and I have to unplug and plug it back in to start recharging again

Be careful!

 

DO NOT connect it to your computer and put the hold on. If you do, you may not be able to "stop" the device so you can safely remove it. This problem led to mine bricking, even though it the device worked fine for about 1 day afterwards.

Really cheap priced mp3 player ; It does everything that it says pretty well. The website recently added a FW update you should take a look at

It doesn't remember where you last left off

Happy

 

Bought 2 one for me and one for Dad. It has great sound. For our first MP3 players they were easy to figure out. Doubles as a flash drive

I don't like the Ear bud earphone. But that's no big deal

RCA MP3 Player

 

Under 100 bucks and a Name Brand that has been around for years!!!! WOW We have 6 children and they all have Spendy MP3 players. None of them even come close to the amount of memory at 5 gigs, battery length & charging ease, menu capabilities and the...

Vista Ready.... Plug it in and copy your favorite songs immediately! Info-lithium Battery Rocks! No double or triple AAA Batteries to fool with, Easy Navigation Menu, Superior 5 gigs of memory ; This MP3 player is Stable ; Happy Kids

Have only found one... The sock they send with it to protect it from getting banged up. They could have at least developed a "cheap,fitting" plastic sleeve to protect it while on the go
