The box advertises up to 8 hours of battery life.

This product does not deserve a star, but I had to chose one so I could post this warning.

Since the battery is not replaceable, I have to return it to Best-Buy for a refund.

The title pretty much sums it up. Don't buy this product. The box advertises up to 8 hours of battery life. In actuality it is closer to 90 minutes, fully charged.

Yes, I have read the part about entering the device into charging mode. It makes no difference.

Buy a used iPod for 30 dollars instead.

In addition to the awful battery life (I bought it for FM radio, and a full charge will last about 4-5 hours), the stupid thing won't even charge on my laptop, I've tried about everything. IF you can get it to a full charge, there is no way it'll last 8 hours, especially if you use more than the radio.

originally I had this as a 4 ... after working with it some more ... this is a 5* for what it does and the cost and learning to work with it and learning its limits.

For the price of $19 at WalMart, this is great! Lots of pluses for the price - video recorder, camera, FM radio, MP3 storage, etc. Sound is good. I notice a tiny tiny bit of cutting out when I play my MP3s occasionally (I think the QC on the product is a little weak from reading other reviews) that I did not notice on my ZEN. Battery life is good 2x my Zen. Zen was 4 hours I can get 8 hours easy with the Eclipse. This is great as it is half the size and weight - of the Zen. The Zen screen is better by far than the Eclipse. But the Zen was $110. Got to give it to Eclipse. Nice product for the money. Be sure to turn your screen off - Mine is on 10 seconds auto turn off. This saves battery. I never could create a play list on my Zen. Eclipse is easy. This is a feature you really really want to use. Plus you can select and set your own frequency volume levels. This is a plus. All for $19.

Easy access to camera photos and drag and drop of music is easy. I have no problem with the product and will buy another. Hope they fix the tiny bit of skipping on some of the MP3s. I really think this is the QC of the device. It is not much of a problem really. I just noticed it.

Again, if they can QC this just a bit - this Eclipse would be a 5 for the money!

Good player holds charge for several hours, DOWN LOAD THE COMPLETE MANUAL FROM INTERNET BEFORE OPERATING!

If not the screen saver will not activate and suck the battery dry in 1-2 hours. I found out the hard way. I was ready to return, searched for a complete manual. Works great if you know how to set it.

Instruction sheet that comes with it is worthless

I bought 1 because I wanted a portable MP3 player and the radio was a nice extra. It would not hold a charge at all. I took it back and excanged it for a new one, same issue. I know it has to be turned on to charge, no idea why. Don't buy one unless you carry around a USB charger.

I got the eclipse from Best Buy and had to return it a few days later. In addition to the 1-hour battery life, when it turns off it won't turn back on for at least half an hour, so if you walk into a store and turn it off to be courteous to the clerk, good luck turning it back on. Also, the music on my microSD card did not sync with the internal memory, so if you put it on random, you only get the music on internal memory. Music on the SD card must be selected first by artist, then by album. This makes creating playlists a chore, and makes listening to different artists about as convenient as changing cd's in a walkman. Also, this doesn't support windows media files, so albums I ripped to my library had to be converted before I could play them. The volume is barely audible even at it's highest level, and the FM radio doesn't even pick up some of the stronger radio stations in my area. I got this player because of it's low price and impressive list of features, but it just proves the old adage "If it seems too good to be true, it is." Avoid at all costs.

Some time ago, I lost a Samsung MP3 player that I loved to bits despite it having a broken volume button (my fault for dropping the thing, I guess...). Searching for a replacement, I ended up with this Eclipse player. The list of special features was impressive -- in addition to music, it could play video, take photos, and let you read e-books. I doubted I would use all these features, however, and was just glad to have a replacement to play my music on. And it was cheap, so getting so many features for a low price was a plus, right?

You know the old adage "you get what you pay for?" It's VERY true in this case, and this "cheap" MP3 player was an extreme headache for its short lifespan.

Echoing what other reviewers have said, this player has a short battery life. It generally has to be recharged after an hour or two of playback time, so don't expect it to last long on a long car trip. And if you use the power switch on the top to turn it off, it will restart your playlist from the very beginning. You have to press and hold the center button to turn it off without resetting your settings to default -- I had to contact customer support to learn this. And to top it off, the "random" setting doesn't work. If you set it to random, listen for awhile, then turn it off and back on (even using the center button instead of the actual "power" button), it will play the same playlist over again from the beginning. It's not truly random if it's the same songs each time, people.

The player itself looks nice and sleek but feels flimsy. It's very thin and, hence, seems like it would be easy to break. And the clear plastic screen pops out all too easily. The only benefit of this is that it makes it handy to clean dust and debris from behind said screen.
