Review date: 11 Feb 2010

Confirmed purchaser

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
1. Sound quality and Volume.
2. Instant "On"
3. Real tactile buttons, i.e.no Touchscreen nonsense so I can use the device single handed in the car whilst I'm driving.
4. Bluetooth bulit in.
5. Drag & Drop file capability from MS Windows.
Bad points:
1. Additional SDHC memory slot would make it perfect.
2. The original Power supply "AC-NWUM50" is the best PSU not the new model.
3. Prefer the 3.5mm jack socket to be at the top of the device, not the bottom.
