This is a very simple MP3 player to use when downloading music to it and also when playing your music. It's drag and drop so as soon as your computer has recognised the device you will be able to begin to transfer your music, sometimes I have had to manually open a few folders to begin to transfer but I don't mind that and it's an easy thing to do. The programme that opens up so you can transfer the songs or other audio is simple to use and does not have many functions, that's better because sometimes there are too many options and then things get too confusing. With the Hipstreet Mini Clip you transfer your music and delete any you don't want anymore using a simple screen that anyone could use once it was open in front of them, the screen is also useful for organising your lists of music because here you can change the order of your songs and even block some that you will not need to access to save them playing with everything else.
Using the MP3 player is easy too, a child could do it (my mum did and she's terrible with this sort of gadget). There are only 5 buttons of the front: a big central play-pause button, forward, reverse and up and down volume controls. They all work well but when I turn the volume up I have to press quite hard on the button to get it to work smoothly, I have asked my friend who I bought it off and he said this has been the same since he bought it new so it's obvious that it's a fault with the manufacture. It still works ok but you have to have the knack sometimes!!
I think the quality of the music is good and as long as I use good quality earphones and all the buttons respond well (except for the volume button I've already told you about). The MP3 player is exceptionally lightweight and I was frightened of losing it for those three weeks when I was using it as my main way to listen to music outside the house, it's made of a soft plastic that feels quite brittle and I was always worried about the clip breaking and it falling off my waist band and hitting the floor because I don't think this MP3 player could cope very well with being banged around.
