To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
As someone who buys a lot of music (seriously, like 99% of my Amazon purchases are MP3s), I need a decent player to fit everything. My old 16 Gig was almost out of room so I had to upgrade, and my old car doesn't have Bluetooth access. I brought this player as my upgrade and am definitely happy with it. The way to control it took a little bit of experimentation, but it's easy to use once you know what to work. It also connects to my car via a cable, as I love listening to it while heading to and from work. The only reason I can't give it five stars is the fact that there's no way to sort by artist or album like other players I've had in the past, as I keep my music in a single folder for a quick drag and drop.
Controls are finicky, often turns off as I'm trying to use the menu. Easy to upload (I took the card out and put it in my phone to download that way), radio setting works amazing. NOT a touch screen like the comment review keeps saying. Best for smaller kids who don't really care and like the same songs on repeat or radio playing. Volume also resets automatically to 18 which is pretty loud.
Just to be clear I knew what I was getting...a device I needed to drag music into to make work with limited bells amd whistles. It worked. It worked fine for all of two days. Then all of a sudden the mp3 function stopped and only the am/FM worked. Now it sits in a box and will one day sit in a landfill. Not worth the trouble of returning.
Stopped working after 20 minutes and showed errors saying "no card/data error" and wouldn't connect to our computer again. Emailed the company but never heard back. Did get a replacement one so will update after that one comes if it actually works
What was I thinking buying a MP3 player for 20$ and hoping it would last a while ... In short, after 3 weeks using the player, it stopped working. My recommendation, don't buy it or you will be disappointed like me. Buy sth else
