This review is from: COBY 3" Black 8GB Touchscreen Video MP3 Player with FM MP837
Pros: None, I didn't get it to work long enough.
Cons: Broken after the first music load. I added 950MB of mp3's and ejected it safely. The unit went into "updating database" and I let it sit for a full 20 minutes before forcing a reset. It crashes to static on every restart now.
Other Thoughts: Before loading the music that brought it to it's knees I did get a chance to navigate around the menus. The interface is a bit sluggish and unpolished looking but serviceable. That's all I can comment on, there was no chance to check sound quality.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SanDisk Sansa Clip 1.0" Black 1GB MP3 Player
Pros: Drag and drop loading. Find files by artist, genre, album. Playlist generator. I must not be picky because I don't understand all the people complaining about the earbuds. They are fine as far as I am concerned. Bright screen. Intuitive navigation. LOUD.... FM tuner. Great battery life. Medium volume, and 192Kbps files gets you right around 8 hours continuous play.. And I rarely go above 1/3 volume. Overall, the best you can get at the price.
Cons: I honestly can't think of any. Possibly only supplying a USB cable to charge but it's not a deal-breaker by any means.
Other Thoughts: All you guys complaining that it only charges from USB can go on 3b6y (the auction site), and get cellphone chargers with the same connector! I can charge this with my Moto home charger or the car charger. And the bonus is, unlike hooking it up USB (that disables the player), you can listen while it's on a stand-alone charger.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ECS GeForce6100SM-M (1.0) AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 6100S Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Does as advertised. I built it as a super-budget office PC and am running value RAM and a cheap single core. The onboard video works fine for 2D stuff, don't bother trying to play games though. Onboard sound was surprisingly free of the whine I hear on most, but it wasn't hooked up to great speakers, could still be there.
Cons: I'm not overclocking or tweaking this one so I have no cons. It works as advertised. Only one SATA cable.
Other Thoughts: I have to say, chalk it up to luck if you want, but this is the first full PC build I've had in a while where I had no hardware or software issue at all. The driver disk has everything you need to get started, and the ECS website was easy to navigate to get updated drivers.READ FULL REVIEW
