4 out of 5 eggsNice video/music player for the price.

Pros: Fairly easy to use and set up. Had no trouble what so ever with it. Even my 8 year old daughter has one and still working fine for her too.

Cons: Have to view the screen straight on or you get some image loss like a typical cell phone style screen.

Other Thoughts: Over all for the price, this is not a bad player but can easily run out of space when it comes to movies on it. Need to convert the files down to the players specs for file size.

1 out of 5 eggsSeriously?

Pros: It was marked down from full price. As usual,Newegg got it to me very quickly.

Cons: Seems to be a recurrent theme here. I too found the touch screen very difficult to deal with. It would either do nothing or go somewhere other than where I wanted it to go. At times I would have to press so hard the background would blur. I was afraid I was going to crack the screen. The radio reception was spotty at best and all but non-existant inside the house.

Other Thoughts: When a product you buy is non-functional right out of the box you really shouldn't have to pay MORE money to return it. Nor should you have to pay a restocking fee and only be able to exchange it instead of getting a refund.If the first one was a dud you can pretty much bet the next one is going to be one too.Especially when it gets as many bad reviews as this thing is racking up.I wish I had gone ahead and gotten one of these that has clip in the name. I guess if the next one is bad I'll just spend more money sending it back too. If that happens I won't be so complimentary towards the people pawning this junk off as quality merchandise.

1 out of 5 eggsTrash screen

Pros: Able to just copy music onto it without the use of any special software.

Cons: The touch screen is horrible. As another reviewer said, this is a "pound" screen, not a touch screen. You really have to smack it violently with your fingers multiple times and hope it recognizes your "touch" one of those times. The only physical button just goes back in menus and turns on the screen. So everything else is tiny and has to be pounded in to control anything.

SnR is not great. Bass is practically non-existent.

Other Thoughts: I got this for $20 during the labor day sale. I figured that this touchscreen and its other features was worth the cheap price. Boy was I mistaken. This player isn't even worth $20.

You'd be better off with one of those tiny mp3 players without a screen, than to deal with the frustration with controlling this one with it's awful touchscreen.

2 out of 5 eggsehhhhh, it's OK

Pros: It records FM Radio and it's extremely light.

Cons: I realize you get what you pay for but this is well below the quality I expected for 50 dollars. The touch screen is more like a pound screen as you need to pound your finger on it to make it work. It ain't no iPod but I was expecting something a little more well put together than this. It records FM radio but in a very low quality format and you can't change it. The menu doesn't seem to retain settings either, I guess it will work after an upgrade to the software, if there ever is one. Nothing to write home about.
