This is a great MP3 player and very cost efficient. There are a couple of things that I absolutely LOVE about this MP3 player. First, it has an FM radio receiver built in to the device so that the consumer can listen to the radio. This is an awesome option because I love listening to the radio just as much as I like my downloaded music. The second thing that I really like besides its nice convenient size is that it reads micro SD cards. This means that a micro SD card can be used to increase the storage capacity of the device. Being able to use a micro SD card is the factor that sold me on purchasing this MP3 player. Sadly I found out in short order that I could not use the player as I had hoped. I tried using two micro SD cards (which I would switch out for different songs) to increase the overall storage capacity of the player. I thought that this was a good idea at the time, but having so many songs on the device really slowed it down and it took forever to turn on and change from song to song. This was very disappointing. Another thing that I don't like about this player is that it is only compatible with Windows Media Player 9. With not looking at the things that I have found wrong with the device I can say with certainty that it is a very nice MP3 player and works perfectly fine if used properly. A great buy for anyone who finds the iPod to be out of their price range. Performance Does not work well when you try to switch between two different memory cards. It works best when you only use one, which is kind of a bummer!
