Excellent price. Good sound quality, compact, and easy to use. Very easy to add or remove tracks, and has a variety of playback modes
Bad points:
Can't really think of any bad points. This little "box of tricks" does everything I want it to do.

Guy, London Ordinary non-technical person

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Fairly good sound, reasonable storage capacity.
Bad points:
It was nearly impossible to load the programme that enabled transfer of music. This is a drawback. Why on earth do you insist on having this unecessary programme which refused to load onto two different machines. This is such a drawback that I have advised other people not to buy your product.

Confirmed purchaser

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Once charged it lasts a long time, plus it is very quick to charge.
Bad points:
The songs are arranged by album unless you manually change it to arrange them by Artist and this defaults after you charge it which is annoying. Also after you charge it the player is set back to the first thing on it, it doesn't keep it's place. It's a bit annoying having to work with Sonic Stage software instead of just copying songs across to the player. If the title and artist name are long the player stops displaying before you have read the whole thing.

Karol, Torun

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Great portability, nice looks, good sound quality.
Bad points:
Awful software, I stopped using the device because of that. It never was fast or user-friendly. You can't just drop music files onto the device, you must use the supplied software to convert music and put it on the device. Some files couldn't be converted! And one day software just stopped working and I couldn't use the device.
