It's a very good, quality MP3 player considering the price. Has all the features you would need and much more and sound quality is excellent.
The interface takes a little bit of getting used to but not in a way that should daunt anyone (unless you...Read more're a technophobe). Once you fully adjust to the interface - a few days of regular use tops - navigation is generally quite slick, although inferior to competitor brands like iPod Nano and Sony Walkman. This is evident in such niggles as having to find an album through the album option rather than artist. This is because an album found in the artist search won't have tracks where the artist is listed as 'Artist A ft. Artist B'.
The touchpad is decent. For navigating long list, you can simply drag your finger from the top of the pad to the bottom repeatedly to scroll quickly, and tap up and down to scroll one-by-one. This is also applicable to playback: to fast forward or rewind, drag your finger across in the relevant direction. One thing to note is that by holding your finger on the touchpad will allow more control, while sliding it across will allow more of free scroll. All in all, intuitive stuff.
The sound quality of the player is decent even without making your own configurations. And if you do intend on sorting out your own EQ then you are allotted 4 slots for saving it all in. However, for those who aren't audiophiles there are plenty of pre-configured EQ settings to enhance the experience of pretty much any type of music you throw it.
The headphones provided are pretty basic and I would advise purchasing a higher quality set if you don't already have some.
There's also the facility to change the colour scheme*, which is a surprisingly nice touch and one I've found very welcome.
The radio is as a radio should be with 24 spaces for preset channels and it would appear deleting those presets isn't actually possible, although that may just be me. Even still, you can overwrite them so it's not really a major issue. I should point out that radio station names don't show, and you can't rename presets.
Works well with PC, and provides the option for MTP and MSC modes for USB connection (MTP for syncing with media players, MSC for drag and drop use - option needs to be chosen before you attach USB)
I don't use any of the other feature so I can't comment on them.
Provides a great deal of storage space, plays music well, playback is non-stop - no gap between tracks, customisable color schemes, looks great
interface takes some getting used to, the album thing mentioned above
Very much worth buying considering the price.
*this was actually advertised as a revolutionary facility called 'Mood Therapy' but to be honest it doesn't really work. Still nice to have different colour themes, though.
