Advantages: Long battery life, simple to use
Disadvantages: Might not be your cup of tea if you are used to ipods etc.
Why I bought it: we picked up this lovely shiny little MP3 player to leave in our car. We have one of those radio to MP3 gizzmo's so we just wanted something cheap and cheerful to leave in the glovebox.
Design: The MP3 player has quite a sleek design, alright it isn't an all singing, all dancing iPod, but it has a clean and simple design, bright screen and easy to use control, perfect for on the move when you don't particularly want to be faffing around.
Usability: The onscreen display is easy to read and bright, the buttons are quite big and not fiddly at all. he user interface is simple to navigate and only requires you to cycle left and right through the options and then middle click to select. Volume controls are built into the central control panel and there is also a hold switch to save you accidently switching songs why it's in your pocket. The device comes with a usb lead to charge through your computer and the battery life is really really good, we probably only charge it every coouple of weeks andd that is with daily use. A battery monitor can be seen on the screen. You can also use the player as a voice recorder and it is compatible with mp3, wma and wav formats.
Cost: We paid around £25 for our player through argos but it can probably be found cheaper online.
