Unfortunately, the product is marred by flaws you won't notice until they bite you hard long after you've gone past the return period. The clock is defective and will start going wrong after a while. In addition, if you have any audio files encoded with a WMA Professional codec, the file will appear to sync OK but will fail to play back. Worst of all, if you have a long audio file, such as a >2 hour audiobook and you try to seek, you will be unable to seek at all.
Since this is a somewhat old product, the cheap price may make up for the deficiencies, esepcially if you do not listen to long audio files or plan to rely on the clock. In the event that you receive one with a dying battery, you can purchase one from Samsung and replace it with a little screwdriver.
This is my second Samsung (I had two ipods before Samsung). I loved the the first Samsung. Why did they have to change good things about it such as the software or navigation controls? The nice screen is a waste since you can't use it for video. The controls for scrolling up and down are frustrating since you have to press them very lightly. The only reason why I am not giving it one star is that the external design is beatiful.
All in all, much more than I expected. I wish I had one of my own, since once I have loaded it with her music, I will need to give it back to my wife. I am giving it 4 stars instead of 5 because I wish all this stuff should be described in the manual and officially supported. If you're like me, this is how you think a music player should work.
