Ideal For The Gym or Travelling
Member Name: patmustard
Advantages: Small, light, good battery life, well made, good sound
Disadvantages: fiddly to use, awful Sonic Stage software
I purchased this MP3 Player around a year ago now and still use it quite often. I initially purchased it for use in the gym as I was attracted by the compact design and the fact it has a display screen as many others of a similar price at the time did'nt offer that facility, although im sure there are plenty on the market now that do.
The unit feels very well built and the sound quality through the included earphones is excellent, although I have had to purchase some sports headphones as the included earphones kept falling out of my big ears.
In use the unit is quite fiddly to operate at first but not too bad when you get used to it. The problem arrises from the fact that there is only a few buttons so each one does different things depending on what menu you are in. I tend to just put my music on the shuffle fuction and leave it be so it does'nt bother me too much.
The unit very lightweight and you would never know you had it in your pocket, it also has a hold button on the side so you dont inadvertantly press the buttons all the time.
The battery is built in and is charged through your computers USB port, and seems to last for ever on a short charge. The Sonic Stage software included that is used to upload your music is the most complicated I have used and takes for ever to convert and upload your music, so the unit is usually chaged up by the time I have updated my music.
Summary: A good value, good quality compact MP3 but not exactly feature packed
