Purchaser Bargain hunter

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It's straight-forward to use and is good value for money given the quality of the product (I have bought cheaper MP3 players in the past but they never last long!).
Bad points:
I think the maximum volume is too quiet - It's probably set at that limit to stop people a) damaging their hearing and b) annoying other people on public transport but I listen to mine while walking to work and, when walking along the busiest roads with all the rush hour noise, I could do with a little more volume.

Nigel, Rotherham Retired and glad ofit

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Does what it's supposed to do and for the size/price I can't imagine any other product could be better. Some reviewers seem to have taken a dislike to this player but don't share their point of view and neither have I experienced any problems at all
Bad points:
