But to my surprise it was super easy transferring my music over to the player. I simply plugged it in, registered it, selected which music folder on my computer that I wanted it to read from, then boom, there's a list of all the songs in MP3 format on my computer.
Then I just choose synchronize for which songs I want to add and that's it.
For the money this is the best deal I have found. It is hard finding an 8gig music player alone, much less one with pictures and video options.
I received this product as a gift from a friend, in exchange for books.
It's fairly decent, to me. $33 for one, free shipping, and you get about twice the storage capacity as most others in this price range.
I have seen a lot of talk about the battery life. Let me tell you that I ran a test yesterday. At 9:18am I started playing music. I ran it until 5:00pm. Yes I was using the buttons to jump around at least moderately to select different songs.
As far as I could see, the battery icon remained full and it played great. At 5pm I cut it off and put it to charge. It took 1 hour to get back to full. That is very good, in my opinion.
As cheap as it is online, you are taking a risk with this. I'm not sure if a seller would take it back and replace if defective. If not, you are screwed. The fine print in the warranty states that you are required to send a defective product back to their facility. (That's $2-$3 for shipping.)
You are also required to send a money order for $6 for them to ship a new/fixed product back to you. Can you say money scam??
Their customer service is a joke. They don't care if you get a defective product. They will quite happily bilk you out of $10 to get it fixed.
They keep wanting to slowly work their way out of my ear. Frankly it is annoying.
This is important. Read it carefully. It's not in the documentation or ad above AT ALL. If I had known, I probably would have gotten a different mp3 player.Read more ›
This device has 8G, that is plenty of storage space for hundreds of songs. The sound from this unit is great. The price is right!
VERY user unfriendly!! You have ONE playlist ONLY! The software that comes with the device is awful. I messed around with it an entire Sunday afternoon and just couldn't make it work. (And I manage the IT department for a Fortune 50 company...) The repeat function is not what you would expect. It goes to the end of the songs and STOPS. If you want to repeat the songs you have to hit 'Enter' again! No shuffle feature unless you want to shuffle and play ALL your songs...
If you want a lot of storage space on the cheap - this is the device for you. If you need user friendly with all the basic features you would expect to see on an mp3 player, keep shopping.
If you want playlists and don't mind the work, I figured out how to create them in a very archaic way. Read on...
1. First of all, don't install or use their software
2. Connect the player to your PC and open Windows Explorer
3. Open the music folder on the device
4. Create a new folder in the music folder amd name it with your playlist name
5.Read more ›
It cannot make libraries, or folders, or separate music into styles, or do anything of that nature. So, if you have different styles of music on your player, such as hip hop and country, there is no way to separate them. You simply have to listen to them together.
Nor is there an equalizer. So, if you have music with heavy bass, there's no way to tone it down. Or, if you have music with weak bass, there's no way to punch it up. There are no options to personalize the sound quality.
Also, there's no shuffle or repeat. You can only listen to your music linearly, in alphabetical order.
And finally, just loading the music onto the player doesn't work. When you drag your files into the manager, it asks if you want to add the files to your library. But, just because you say "Yes," doesn't mean it will work when you play it. No, no, no. Once you've added the files, then you have to tell the manager to synchronize the files. And, even though you synchronize them, doesn't always mean they'll play, either. It's a hit or miss with this unit.
So, while the capacity is wonderful and the price is good (for that capacity), the features are horrible. I would never recommend it. The features this unit left out are absolutely vital to a high capacity unit. Definitely not a good choice if you have different tastes in music and like to personalize your listening experience.
If I had to do it over, I would pay more for a better unit with less capacity.

Based on price and performance. It works fine. It is only a 8GB so do not expect to upload a large amount. Get some good ear phones and you are set with the sound.Published 2 months ago by Pete
