Great little item for the money - easy to use and has integral USB connection for charging/transferring mp3s etc. Almost as good as my Sony for a fraction of the price!

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Small and nice to hold-light too.Sound quality surprisingly good,even with basic supplied headphones.Battery life not bad either.
Bad points:
Can be a bit frustrating trawling through track list to find song you want-when 'going back' it takes you to the beginning of your tracks and not to the last track you were listening to-you can just press forward while listening to go to next track but this is also a bit cumbersome.Option to choose artist in menu is a good thing,but none of these are lightning fast.

Ben, Newcastle upon Tyne

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Very good quality for the money paid. I was overjoyed to find an mp3 player which had an inbuilt FM radio. I was buying it as a christmas present for my father, who is not very tech savy and likes to listen to the radio or music while exercising. If he can use it after minimal instruction, then anyone can.
Bad points:
At first I couldn't get it to work. Turns out it doesn't support WMA files, even though it recommends using the windows media player sync tool to upload music. All you have to do is set your Windows Media Player to rip files from CD in MP3 rather than WMA, or find a WMA to MP3 converter program online.
