Small Wonder

Perfect price

 

It's not the biggest thing, but when you just have a few songs at a time you want on there, this works perfect.

I bought this MP3 player for my mom who has always tried to mooch off of my MP3 player for awhile now. She just needed something light, easy to handle, not so small that you lose it, and not too large in MBs. This thing works perfectly

It isnt 1 GB, but you know what you're buying

Great Deal

 

I would definitely buy this mp3 player again.

High quality sound, nice control layout, fast & easy to manage files, FM radio, low price, 19 hour battery life

It is a bit thick & heavy, bigger than a roll of quarters for example. Also, the shape is awkward in both my pocket & my hand. The combo-deal case looks just like a baby's sock, not something I like at all. I recommend buying a case seperately with an...

Not all U want, but all U need

 

I just purchased a new iP*d Nan* for me. The kids got MP3 fever so how can you go wrong at that price. I bought 2.

Simplicity, Flexibility and Sound quality. Onboard tuner and 5 band EQ. Stock headphones are excellent ; 64K WMA files sound better than iP*d at 128k. Fairly easy to use. Works on AAA battery. No recharge time

So it won't play video... and the navigation has a little bit of a learning curve. 512MB isn't a lot of storage but it will hold over 200 songs @ 64K rate

Consumer review by: stb (newegg.com)

so easy a caveman can do it!

 

confused on why people need support from a drag and drop player? maybe the EQ is the hardest part. but even then the average person won't need it. don't have to have the player off when transfering music.

no software needed guys. not even windows media player. its a plug n play which means windows picks it up after you plug it in. all you have to do is go into windows explorer and copy the music you want and then paste it in the "data" folder on what...

smalls screen sometimes makes it hard to read. but nothing to bad

Docs/Manual useless

 

Low price

The manual supplied with this player is virtually useless. The "support" web site isn't much better. You just have to play around with it to figure out how to use it. I would not reccomend this player to a friend
