Advantages: Sound! Small! Clips on! Easy to use!
I do a lot of singing and so it is important that I have my own equipment. Whilst I had a P.A system, speakers and a microphone etc, I didn't have anything to play the music on. Most of the singers I know use laptops, but as I don't have a laptop (only a desktop), I didn't really want to fork out around £300-£400 just for the sake of playing music. So when I heard that some people use 'mp3' players, I decided to give this Sandisk Sansa mp3 player a go.
The mp3 player is very small...it's like the size of a matchbox and very light. It's so small that it is quite easy to drop, but luckily because it is made of thick plastic it doesn't mind when I drop it accidentally. To be honest, I think it looks very toy-like. There is a clip on the back so that you can clip it onto yourself. I find that this is very useful when performing songs as it means that I can have it close to me so that I can skip songs etc and so I can see what song is coming up next.
The screen is quite small, however, considering it's size the screen is very good; the writing is very clear and easy to read which is good. My only complaint is that I would like if there were more buttons rather than '3 arrows' as this would make 'moving around' easier.
In order to connect the mp3 player to my 'pa system' - I had to buy a special connector lead (this was only a couple of pounds). This means that whatever I play on the mp3 player comes out of the speakers. I only ever use the mp3 player when connected to the pa system and so the sound is always quite loud; it's very good quality; always clear.
Uploading songs is very easy. Simply use the 'connector lead' (which comes with it. Plug one end into the mp3 player and the other into the computer. Switch the mp3 player on and it will connect to the computer. Follow the instructions on the computer. Simple. You can also delete songs off your mp3 player using this method. I do think that the lead connecting the mp3 player to the computer is very short; so much that it 'hangs' down as is so short you can't put it on the desk. The memory on this is quite good, although I bought a special memory card for it so that I could add a lot of songs without fear of running out of memory.
The mp3 has great battery power. The mp3 comes with a battery (although I'm not sure what it actually looks like). I charge it using the 'computer connector' and it charges off the computer which is good. It only takes a couple of hours to charge. I find that the battery lasts me around 18 hours which I think is great. So if I have a show I know that I can rely on the battery to last and that it won't run low (that would be embarrassing!).
I paid £33.10 for this mp3 player from Amazon which I think is excellent value for money and would definitely recommend it for both personal and professional use.
Thanks for reading!
