Tiny, lightweight. Built-in USB. FM radio and recorder. Voice recorder. Solid bundled earbuds

I like it!

 

I've only had it for one day, so please read other reviews as well. I really like it. It took me a while to figure out the software that came with it. You can also just drag songs into the music folder, so there is no need to use the software. I just...
