The packaging it was sold in was nicer than contents

 

Good brand name in electronics. I certainly didn't live up to its reputation with this piece of junk. Hard to believe they made it!

Nice user interface (while it worked). Pleasant appearing case ; Compact and light

Dead batteries not long after purchase date. I recharge it now for varying lengths of time and it turns off in less than a minute

Switch Problems

 

Don't buy it. Switch failures appear to be a problem

Decent interface ; Good sound ; Nice features ; Good battery life

First one lasted about a month before the on/off switch malfunctioned ; Second one did not even last a day ; The switch failed the first time I tried to turn it off

10 stars (it made me select a rating) PIECE OF JUNK!

 

I purchased the product on 9/24/2010 to give to my son on his birthday on 10/20/2010. Out of the package, IT DID NOT WORK!!!! The store had a 10 day return policy; the company says it is out of the warranty period. IT IS THE WORST PRODUCT EVER! I will...

NOTHING

The customer service agents are the worse. They know nothing about the product; they only follow the script. Do not waste your time with them

Horrible Device

 

I highly recommend against the purchase of this device. I haven't had any critical problems with the device but it's almost as though the people that designed this thing had never seen or used an MP3 player before. The device is very sleek looking but...

Neat Looking ; Music sounds decnt ; Easy music transfer from PC to device

Power button sketchy and powering off difficult ; Cannnot create music playlists ; No power off after inactivity feature ; Music not sorted ; Touch screen doesn't always react to touch ; No wrap on titles and albums
