4 out of 5 eggsBest mp3 ever

Pros: No cables, plugs directly into a normal mp3 slot. Runs on rechargeable batteries you can REPLACE. Even runs on alkalines AAA batteries, wuch last a wek or more even with daily use. Even has a display so you can see what part of which audiobook you are hearing.

Cons: The only cons are in the case design. If you put a rubber band around the body it will not fall apart, and a small piece of tape will keep the USB cover from falling off. Wtth those two fixes this is

Other Thoughts: All others have a messy OS or batteries that die and cannot be replaced --all rechargeable batteries fail sooner or later--or some goofy cable with a weird plug that's always not there when yu need it

4 out of 5 eggsProblematic, but great

Pros: very cheap. very good sound quality. 2gb (30 - 40albums) of space is plenty unless you plan to carry your entire harddrive's worth. Small, simplistic design. Good button action. Great for jogging. Fits in your pocket well. Easy navigation.

Cons: Stock firware a little buggy. White backlight kinda boring after awhile (different colors please?). Headphones suck. IMPORTANT: Almost had to RMA my mp3 player after a week, wouldnt turn on past the boot screen. Whacked the @@@@ out of it but still didn't work. Read the manual, did the Hard reboot method with the included software, still didnt work. Then I tried the hard reboot method again and instead held the shuffle button for 30 seconds during and after choosing to reboot. Fixed it like a charm! New firmware as well.

Other Thoughts: Easily the best value mp3 player out there at the moment. Storage is more than necessary. After a firmware update this player really delivers.

4 out of 5 eggsDoes the job

Pros: Respectable sound quality, ample output (drives my Sony MDR V6 headphones just fine), relatively easy to use compared to some small MP3 players, very inexpensive.

Cons: Doesn't recognize playlists, feels pretty fragile, voice recorder sound quality is poor, included headphones are yucky.

Other Thoughts: For $16.99 I didn't expect much and this player exceeded my expectations. It sounds pretty good although having more control over sound (other than preset EQ settings) would be nice. The included headphones are yucky. Toss 'em and get something better for not a lot money. It does the job that a Discman did 25 years ago for a whole lot less money. (:

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Cheap, sleek, and cool

Cons: Volume is a bit off as mentioned. Menu design kind of stinks.

Not sure if it's the headphones or what, but when you move the jack, it messes with the calrity of the songs.

2 out of 5 eggsHmm..

Pros: Portability?

Cons: Kinda big. Not to mention, maybe I received a defective one? Transfer rate on mine is takes ~10 minutes for 186 MB. Something wrong with mine? I have a 2.0 U.S.B. port on my comp.. *shrugs*

Sound quality is kinda ear piercing even with my Apple earphones on. Maybe my ears are just extra sensitive?? It's kinda nauseating TBH.

Btw, if you're buying this because it reminds you of the mini Creative Zen player about the size of two USB sticks combined, it's not the same. Slightly larger, fatter. =)

Other Thoughts: Other than that I am PLEASED with NewEgg's customer service/delivery time. Out of all products I purchased, I'm thus happy with the service so FAR. Outstanding. Great deals!

2 out of 5 eggsNot good for non-continuous use

Pros: Cheap. Great sound.

Cons: Very poor product engineering. It does not remember the song you were playing and you need to browse over to the song you want to play every time you turn on the device.

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure who engineered this product, but it's not very user friendly. My biggest complaint is that it does not remember the last song you were playing. So if you turn off the device explicitly, or it turns itself off after some idle time (~5 minutes), when you turn it on again, you have to browse over to the song you want to play again. This flaw pretty much renders the product useless to me since I often pause a music player for more than 5 minutes. I guess if you listen to 10 hours of music in one sitting until the battery dies than you will face this frustrating problem.

1 out of 5 eggsVery poor product

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Only worked for a week. Then it only turned on for 5 seconds and shut down. Bought new batteries and followed the manual for trouble shooting but still not working. Very disappointing. Spent too much time on fixing it.

Other Thoughts: Own a few Philip products but this is the first disappointment. Guess I have to spend big $$$ for iPod.

5 out of 5 eggsData files on mp3

Pros: Update.. This player is working great!!! It is better than Philips sa 2325 2GB player that was prior other than the fact It holds less than half music content. Like the fact it starts up right away. The sa2325 takes appprox. 2 to 3 minutes to start.

Cons: As before the earbuds need replacing!!

Other Thoughts: The files you see when you are adding music, STDBTR,etc, Have nothing to do with operation of player. Its firmware or hardware. If it did they would not even show up visually, As is the case of the sa2325. I deleted all files and it works perfectly. Look up files on your computor and you will find out what they are........

5 out of 5 eggsGo Phillips!!

Pros: I was looking for a cheap FM radio for working out in the gym and settled on this GEM. It is an inexpensive, easy to use player that adds a lot of great features. The MP3 files are easy to add (no ACC). Simple set up had me listening to files within minutes. The player needs a PC to set up, but after that you can use a Mac to add files or podcasts (the primary computer you use for this device should be a PC). Another hint, don’t delete locked files, this is the OS and they need to remain on the device.

The radio is easy to use, though I recommend using the manual method for adding radio stations (auto added all stations from 89.7 to 95.5, this filled up the presets and I had to add my stations, 101.5 ad 106.5 manually). Someone should tell Cupertino that FM is still worth a listen.

There is a file browser, which allows you to see other files. Useful if you also keep some documents on the stick and can’t remember which files/versions is on the thumb drive.

Cons: The play button is temperamental. It sometimes takes a few hits to get it to go. But for the price, that is worth living with.

Other Thoughts: A cheap alternative to joining the white head phone nation!
