The mp3 player is petite in size and also relatively thin. It looks simple but stylish at the same time, as I purchased the black version it has a nice glossy finish with black control buttons located on the front of the player. The Sandisk mp3 player comes with earphones and a USB cable for transferring music to and from devices. I would say that the product does not look highly expensive due to its simple looking design, but it is far from cheap looking and still looks more expensive than its price tag.
The setup process was easy enough, however I did have to glance at the instruction manual a little to get it fully started. The mp3 player impressively plays a range of format files including MP3, WMA, secure WMA, Ogg Vorbis, and FLAC formats. It is also fully compatible to play audiobooks which is great little added feature.
It has a mircro SD slot so if you run out of memory it you can always purchase memory cards, however I found the 4GB storage capacity manages to hold more than 1000 tracks and is personally more than enough for a music lover like me.
It has an in built microphone that enables you to record voice memos easily and is highly convenient, the quality of recordings is also of a high standard with my voice memos playing back crystal clear. The mp3 player also has a FM radio playback feature, which is also great as it means I can switch from playing my mp3 tracks to listening to live radio tracks and shows.
The USB cable allows the mp3 player to be charged easily by connecting it into a usb slot on a computer. The battery capacity is quite good in my opinion, it can play back music for around 14 hours before it needs recharging, however over time (a few years) I have found that the battery would need to be charged after listening to music for around 6 hours. This is not a huge problem as it is easy to recharge and recharges quite fast.
The button functions are easily visible and work great and enable controlling the playback of music simple and effective. The play, pause, rewind etc symbols are labelled white and therefore are easy to recognise against the black contrast of the device. The control dial allowed me to navigate between tracks easily and also scroll through menu options without any issues and therefore is very user friendly.
The screen is small but still manages to display track details clearly. The clip that is positioned at the back of the device and is strong and fixes onto belts or upper trouser area easily and securely, I have clipped this on my pair of jeans a few times and have never had any problems with it falling off. However as it is already small sized, I tend to just stick it in my pocket while I listen to it.
The power button is easily found at the top of the player, and a simple click of the on button and the player is ready to go. The volume levels can be controlled by the side buttons, and have found that even it medium volume levels the sounds is more than loud enough.
The playback quality of the music is great, the vocals and overall music can be heard clearly with no background buzzing sounds. As I am a bit picky, I found that the headphones that come with the mp3 were not that great; therefore I use my own earphones to really bring out the full potential of the track and mp3 player.
Transferring songs to and from the music player is very simple, and requires a simple drag of files to/from the computer folder into the mp3 folder and they are transferred within seconds. Songs can be organised on the computer or via the device itself and makes the process of listening to certain playlists and music genres so much easier.
I would highly recommend this mp3 player as it is cheap but high quality device that plays quality sounding music. It is easy to use and well designed, and it is hard to believe it is only £20 while other similar mp3 players are so much more expensive. I would therefore rate this mp3 player a high 5/5.
