I was really excited to receive my new, upgraded mp3 player but I was left feeling rather disappointed. I own the first version and so I am comparing the 2. I appreciate that the screen is larger but wish the configuration was up and down, as the first player, because it holds better in your hand to use the buttons. This one is much more difficult to use overall. I have been unable to create a playlist....something I use faithfully with my first player. It is much more difficult to navigate in general. The music did not seem to transfer as well either. The customer service however is great! And, just like the frist player, I absolutely love the speaker. Overall a fine player for the price, I just prefer the original version.
For anyone looking for an inexpensive player that doesn't need blue tooth, this one will do the job. I'm not going to place blame anywhere, but on me for misreading the description. However, I will say the product description can be a bit hard to follow as information on a product is all over the place and some in down right vague! As I said, the player is great, a bit smaller then I expected, but it works for its intended purpose. The down side is there is no touch screen and menu controls are very small. This is a problem when your a guy with large fingers and on top of that, one hand that functions at 28% on a good day. The other problem was the blue tooth, the player wont transmit mp4's over blue tooth. This is a deal breaker for me since all my music is off iTunes and I'm not going to convert all my music over to another format for I can listen to it over blue tooth. I don't know if this is some kind of DRM feature that was introduced into the blue tooth transmitter or its software related. For the price its a good deal, for me its a no go. Happy shopping!
This is only my initial review from only using the player for a couple days without using all the features. The player has a nice weight to it and quite a few functions such as fm radio, recorder, alarm, bluetooth etc. I haven't loaded any music just yet, but 3 songs came pre-loaded and they played fine. The fm radio picked up some of my local stations but played a bit fuzzy. The player has a built in speaker which is not very loud which isn't a problem for me personally....I must mention that it is advertised as touch screen of which it is not. I will give another review and possibly a higher rating after I've loaded music and have used it for a few months to really tell the quality/longevity of it. I am hoping the battery life holds up to other reviews.
This is an update to my initial review. I have been unsuccessful in getting my mp3 files loaded.....They appear to load but then do not show in the playlist on the player, but my computer lists the files under the mp3 drive....Also, none of my devices connect to the bluetooth. Lastly, the playtime is about 6 hours...somewhat disappointed in this purchase.
This unit is difficult, if not impossible, to operate while driving. The navigation is cumbersome, and the buttons are tiny. It also takes time to figure out what the buttons do in certain menus. A standalone volume control would have been nice, as it's complicated to adjust the volume, let alone the other sound settings. That being said, the unit has worked fine and has relatively good battery life so far. Charging is easy with a standard micro-USB charger. It has a built in speaker too, although it's almost useless. For the price, the unit is fine. You get what you pay for. But don't expect an intuitive, user friendly design. Made in China.
I am going to give it 3 stars. It has lots of functions but no memory to keep your settings. I like to set the sleep timer and KEEP IT! If I wake up in the middle of the night and turn this player on, the sleep timer setting is gone so it just keeps playing my audio book. For me this player does not fit my needs. It is super sensitive so if you inadvertently hit a function it may take you back to the beginning of the audio book - which is not what I want. It is a good player for many but not for me so I am going to return it. Sorry Berennis.
Ive had this device for a few months now. What i dont like is the shuffle all only works on local folder (internal hd). The shuffle all feature is non existant with your memory card, nor can you play all from the local HD and the memory card together. Also an annoying feature is the touchpad. If your are increasing the volume you have to press the back button to skip to next song, the volume screen wont go away until you hit back. The overall navigation is rather frustrating in general. Also, for some reason the devise will freeze for no reason at all and you will have to restart it. Battery life is good, bluetooth works fine, build quality is good as well. This thing is just kinda ok.
I needed this because my work bans cell phones. It hold a lot and works well. Great battery life. The display is impossible to read in strong light and the interface requires many steps for any function. A good value.
We purchased this for our son’s 10th birthday. I was surprised at all of the things you can do with it including voice recordings, radio, and video on top of just an MP3 player. However, the external speaker quit working the first day. It will still work with headphones so our son doesn’t mind too much. We were able to connect it to a Bluetooth speaker so he can still listen to it without headphones, but still disappointed it quit so quickly. All around, not a bad product though.
