Pros: Can't add anything that hasn't already been said. Price can't be beat.
Cons: Same; if it works better than the Curtis 24" I returned for it, I'll be happy
Overall Review: I have nothing to add that hasn't already been said about the actual unit. I really wanted to talk about NewEgg and how awesome their service is. Price is phenomenal, and I ordered it on a Wednesday at 4 PM EST. NO LIE, it just got delivered to my desk at 10:45 AM on Thursday. There is no other company can that compete with that. I've been a NewEgg customer for years, and if you are within 3 states of their Edison NJ processing facility/warehouse, count on your delivery in 2 days flat.
Pros: Didn't spontaneously combust in my face when I turned it on.
Cons: I just got a sansa clip, and the fact that that player was so great is what compelled me to write a review of this player. Save your money. I spent 15 bones and that was way too much. It's an awful player. The controls are horrible, the rocker is unreliable, the sound is terrible. Worst of all, is the fact that I bought this to use while exersizing, and the SLIGHTEST bump would make the entire thing shut off. Just lightly tapping it would make it crash and I'd have to boot it back up and navigate back to the playlist again. To me, this is inexcusable from a flash-based mp3 player.
Overall Review: I can use it as a usb drive I guess.
Pros: This player is easily the best flash-based player I've owned. I've tried out quite a few (my main purpose is for use during my exersize sessions) and this is far and away the best. It gets five eggs for size, ease of use, features and price. Add to this the fact that this thing weighs nothing, and it is perfect for working out. I bought another Centon mp3 player first to use when I'm working out, and it was AWFUL. This is the one you want.
Cons: It doesn't make me breakfast in the morning.
Overall Review: Volume could be louder, but I like my music LOUD and I use the stock earbuds, so I'm sure this could be rectified if I wasn't so lazy/cheap.
Pros: Great cooling capabilities, terrific design. The cooler could easily be highlighted in a serious modders case. Comes with a thermal pad.
Cons: None really
Overall Review: It does what it says, and it keeps my 3800+ X2 cooled considerably at load. 29C at idle, 37-38C at load. Not bad at all.
