Advantages: cheap and cheerful
Disadvantages: sound quality through headphones a little tinny
I was bought this MP3 player for christmas as I like to download music from the net to listen too whilst im out working and this was one of my presents, which although it's quite a basic MP3 player it suits me fine as it stores around 400 songs and is small enough for me to carry around in my bag, so that I can listen to music when ever I want.
It came with headphones and has a good display window, it is a plug and play device and has a slide out USB connection, this is great as I'm terrible when I get a new gadget as I tend to lose the leads if they have them. They cost money to replace and sometimes they are really hard to find as I found out one time when trying to get a new lead for my sony digital camera a few years ago. With this USB connect that problem is gone.
You can plug it in to charge it up on your computer and can download music from your computer onto it as it is the simple drag and drop method which I'm sure everyone is familliar with.
The casing is sturdy and it is made from thin aluminium metal so it doesn't scratch easily or scuff up as quickly as plastic. They come in pink or black so the colour choice is limited, but for me this isn't a problem as I like black.
It retails from around £29 upwards depending on where you buy it from and is thin, sleek and durable.
I like the style of it as it doesn't have lots of buttons to navigate and get used to, it has a slide control for volume and has a button on the front which is a four way button for scrolling through the music to chose what you want to listen too and volume . Scrolling through your music list can take a while but I don't mind.
The sound quality is quite good but a little tinny if you wap it up loud but on a fair level of volume it sounds quite good with the base and treble at a decent sound for the price you pay.
It is a bog standard player and if your looking for something high tech then this isn't for you, but for me I'm happy with it as it's easy to use stores enough of my music and lists it by ablum or artist and can be charged up on my computer.
I'm happy with it.
Summary: good standard MP3
