I chose this MP3 player due to the price. I knew that there was a chance that it could just stop working, or some weird malfunction may happen, but I did not want to bring my new Ipod on a rugged camping trip. I was truly in for a nice surprise, because not only does this MP3 player work great but it has lasted me for several months already. The sound quality is good, it fits in my pocket, and I actually enjoy taking it around more than my Ipod because of it's simplicity. Overall, sometimes you really don't need all the "jazz" and a simplistic product like this works fine!

I wanted something small & simple (and with at least 4GB of memory) to listen to music at work. This fit the bill and the price was right. The reviews were fairly good as well, so I gave it a shot. I've only had the player a couple days, but I'm very pleased so far. Here's what I've noticed:

The player arrived packaged well; the contents included the player, USB connector, earbud headphones, AAA battery and manual. The player seems sturdy and sleek. Though I can see why another reviewer stated the battery cover was flimsy, I feel it's fine. The buttons are a bit hard to push but I adjusted to it pretty fast. At least they feel sturdy. I did notice that after a little bit of inactivity you will need to hit the button twice - the first time seems to 're-activate' the player. That may be while some people felt they don't work... The buttons from left to right are Mode, Volume down, Volume up, Back, Play/Pause, Forward. The Play/Pause button is also the Off/On button. You have to hold the button for about five seconds to get it to turn on (you'll know it's on once the COBY sign comes up on the screen). Turning it off also takes five seconds and you'll get a little countdown on the player letting you know it's about to turn off.

The LCD display is very SMALL, which I knew from the pictures but they cram a lot of info onto that screen so what's there is tiny! The display lists: Song Number (out of total songs on the player), song length, battery meter, song album & title, song bitrate, play mode, and volume.

I plugged the player into my laptop and it came right up as a flash drive. There is software that comes on the player that you can load and use to transfer files. I ignored that and just used Windows Media Player which worked just fine.

I loaded this one up with two levels of directories and 1425 WMAs. I just used the normal explorer software to transfer the files from my notebook. Sound is very good for an inexpensive player. I had no trouble using the buttons once I found out that it normally locks after a delay between uses and you have hit a button to unlock the buttons before proceeding. It also takes a little bit to figure out how to use the folder mode. When you enter the folder mode, it does not display the directory tree as the manual says. It displays the title of the last song played. You the have to go up, or down, until you get to a folder icon. The icon is a folder with an up or down arrow in it. At this point, pressing the >= (play) button will bring up the directory tree.

The only real con that I have found is that the display is hard to read because it is so small, however it does have a surprising amount of information on it.

I highly recommend this product.

I wanted something simple without many frills. Having the title display was about the level I needed. I normally use the unit when I am sitting at a desk doing some other work. I thought it was a good idea that this used AAA battery, so that I could replace battery easily (I have recharger). Note, it does not recharge the batteries. I am still on the first battery so it has adequate lifetimes for me.

It is cute and has fairly intuitive controls. A variety of built-in equalizer settings and a few other settings that are easy to access.

I have a some trouble with controls and the sound, which just could be my particular unit it a bit of a lemon. The earphone jack is not quite arranged right, and so if I plug in the jack all the way, it doesn't connect, and I have to back it out a bit in order for the connectors to line up right. That seemed weird. Luckily, it stays OK in that position so that I don't have to keep fiddling with it to keep connected.

The thing that really bothers me, however, is that I also get a faint but unmistakable 'clicking/electronic click' noise in the sound output. It is fairly annoying during soft music when it is really obvious. Of course, with louder music, it isn't as obvious. It does not change volume with the music volume or the output volume. I've tried rotating and using different positions of the earphone jack, and different equalizer, but haven't been able to identify its source.

I have owned one of these products for 5 months. I was looking for a MP3 player that would have incredibly long battery life (for long drives when listening to audio books). This product definitely fits the bill. The small lcd screen means the device will not be sipping a lot of current for the display, increasing the overall battery life. The company's estimate on battery playtime is also quite conservative. With rechargeable 1000MaH AAA batteries (not the highest capacity on the market), I can get over 26 hours of playtime on a single charge. As some other reviewers have noted, there is a clicking noise that becomes audible when the volume is very low or the device is paused. Since I use this for audio books over songs, this isn't an issue for me. The clicking sound also gets drowned out after you turn up the volume settings past 1/3rd of its max output.

A recommendation I would give to future products would be to integrate a charger within the device, while retaining the AAA battery. Swapping files with your computer via USB (even if plugged in for only 5 minutes) would translate to hours of playtime if a charger were included. A miniature switch could be included within the battery compartment to deactivate the charger when using non-rechargeable batteries.

Overall, if you want durability, duration, and simplicity, this is the device for you.
