5 out of 5 eggsThis thing is amazing!

Pros: I bought this for two reasons. 1. music player 2. access to apps. all i can say is that it is easy to use, easy to load music on to and a great little internet device. look if you dont need a smart phone but want all the apps, this is it! Everything runs great, i can send and receive text, check facebook, send photos to instagram, all the fun stuff the smartphones do, but no bill every month! love it! so what if it i need to be in a wifi area to do all that, not to hard to find a signal....besides, the main reason i bought this was for the music player, everything else is a added bonus!
As for some other reviews, i have had absolutely no problems with this refurb player. out of box, charged, and loading apps and music with-in a few hours of receiving and been going strong since. Not only have i praised this player to others, my boyfriend got one too, and loves it!

Cons: seriously, the only con i can speak of is the head phone jack being on the bottom of the player....just seems out of place, but not really a problem...

Other Thoughts: just buy one!

5 out of 5 eggsGood choice for media play

Pros: I love this thing. It covers all the things I wanted well except one. The media player portion is great. The speakers are above average based on their small size. The stock mp3 software is not the greatest but since this is an android device; finding a better quality software was a snap.

I download books from the public library onto this device and the reading experience is almost as easy a paperback. The screen size is surprisingly easy read.

If you find yourself waiting for the wife while she shops this is the device to have. Load a few books up and lots of music and video. You will be entertained for well over 6 hours on a charge.

Cons: A very poor camera. This is the single worst portion of this device. The next version should be equipped with at least an 8mp lens.... on this model one has to wonder why they put a 2.8mp in instead of a 5-8mp.

Other Thoughts: I have read the complaints about the refurbished models but I have experienced none of this.

1 out of 5 eggs2nd time still no charm

Pros: looks nice

Cons: this is my 2nd device and it still has power issues and constantly freezes. this was a gift for my daugther and the first one was purchased almost a month ago. the no refund policy is ludicrous given that this device only has one good review and obviously there are known issues with the refurbished models (assuming the new ones don't have the same issues). I will be contacting new egg by phone to inquire about a refund or will be contacting the BBB.

1 out of 5 eggsBuy a new one instead

Pros: Nice screen, Android-based, expandable memory

Cons: Refurbished unit has a lot of power issues - won't charge properly, keeps making usb connect/disconnect sound even when nothing is plugged in, etc.

Other Thoughts: I've had a Galaxy Player before and I've bought half a dozen for friends and family as gifts,. Everyone's loved them - the battery life is good, the Android market gives a good variety of apps, the screens are good. And they're relatively durable, not shattering as soon as they're dropped, unlike the fruit-brand media players.

However, the refurbished version seems to be garbage. I've bought refurbished electronics before and had no issues, but this one has been a huge disappointment since it became defective within a few days of use. I'd give the new one 4 or 5 stars, but I cannot recommend getting a refurbished one with a clear conscience. Since it seems the exact same issues I'm having are being experienced by others, it just seems the whole line of refurbished ones are, well, not worth buying. If you want one, save yourself the headache and buy a NEW unit.

5 out of 5 eggsWe Love It, Does much more than Ipod

Pros: You can expand memory. Large amount of free apps. Will play radio without being connected to internet. Touch screen works real good. Connects to open WiFi sights. Down loading MP3s from PC are easy. We like this size, not to big or too small. You can text with one of the free apps. The battery is removable.

Cons: Price

Other Thoughts: This unit has a time out to sleep to save battery. I think this is what the other reviewer was seeing. This timer can be changed or shut off.

1 out of 5 eggsdidn't work

Pros: beautiful device. we love samsung... and this fits the bill

Cons: the device would not stay powered on. when an app was opened, it would shut down at random- even the camera. when attempting to download an app, an error message would pop up during install.

Other Thoughts: this player was purchsed as a gift for my (very tech savvy) 10 year old. we were VERY disappointed. i would've preferred to just get a refund. i don't know if the fault was with the product, the refurbisher or the company it was purchased from (refund wasn't an option). so i was forced to pay for shipping AGAIN just to send it back and have another player sent to me. hopefully the next one works.

1 out of 5 eggsNot happy

Pros: nice looking device

Cons: would not stay powered on and could barely open apps or download. when it did work it seemed very slow when downloading.

Other Thoughts: this may be an ok device when working properly but I would just assume buy an older smartphone with the same sized screen and a faster processor.
