Although a great product, producing great sound and large storage capacity, there is a tendancy for this product to keep crashing, usually when low battery and there is little to do but wait for the battery to die, and then let recharge. However, I have found sometimes that it won't recharge for a few days.
There are many different sound options, different EQ levels and so on. There is a back light of neon blue, which constrasts with the black colour of the model. The neon light helps see when its dark, but it also lights up when the MP3 player is on charge, so little chance of losing it then! With the ability to record sounds as well, this is an all round MP3 player. So, if you want an MP3 that produces amazing sound, has amazing store capacity, but is sometimes unreliable, this MP3 player is for you.

If you want bother with mp3 players that crash every now and then this is for you. The features it has are great but i was warned by one person doing a review on another site and did not listen. Lucky me it was refunded
I spent a long time time reading product specs and reviews of many different mp3 players and eventually decided to give this one a go. I certainly don't regret it! I looked at many of the products on offer with video and photo capabilities, but simply decided that what I wanted was a device to play music. This player does the job extremely well, and with 20 Gb of storage, you can fit a pretty healthy sized CD collection on here! The touch controls are incredibly sensitive, but you find yourself getting used to them within minutes of takeing it out of the box. The only slightly negative point I can pick up on is that when ripping CDs, it does have a tendancy to 'lock up' when it encounters multimedia discs. However, I suspect this is a problem that can be easily solved with a software or firmware revision.
Highly recommended, robust player with great sound quality.
