Colin, Sheffield Music lover

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Great value and very versatile. Really like the user interface and the fact it runs FLAC files which alows me to access my domestic audio digital music archive. Has a great range of features for such a low priced Mp3 player and is perfect for jogging, using in the gym and foreign travel which is what I bought mine for. If you replace the supplied headphones for something better the sound quality potential is also really good. The USB cover is very secure unlike the one on my wife's Sony! Took ages to fully charge out of the box but has held it's charge very well since so worth the time and effort. Also works great through the USB port in my BMW [better than my friends ipod nano]. Overall I'd say it's a great product and one I'd recommend without reservation to anyone looking for a cheap Mp3 player that really delivers.
Bad points:
Took a while to charge and the supplied headphones weren't up to much although I'd always planned to replace these with some JVC ear buds anyway [which work a treat!]. Can't think of any other negatives though.

Good points:

Bad points:
i bourght it because of it's claim that the battery lasted up to 18hr so imagain my shock while out on a marathon walk of 34hours to find that at the 71/2 hour point in radio mode it went dead the timing shown on the label needs to be more up front,
