When my old mp3 player refused to work in any computers any more, I had the difficult task of replacing it. I chose this because not only did it have 8GB of storage (8 times more than I was used to), but there was also room for a memory card should I require further space. Which, since I have 1GB left already, I will do!
As with any new system it took a bit of getting used to, but now I've adjusted I love this mp3 player. It's a lot like an iPod but cheaper and, I think, nicer, though that's just my opinion because I don't like iPod. The sound is great, the picture is clear, the in-built microphone is brilliant and there are loads of options to customise it with. However, I only gave it four stars for a couple of reasons: if I want to search for a song, I have to trawl through every single one alphabetically until I find it - it would be easier to search by album, artist or genre but this stops the shuffle. You have to add album art yourself; if it is embedded in the track, it doesn't show. You need to add the cover as a JPEG into the album file, and make sure it is called 'Folder'. And I miss my sports timer from my old one! It was invaluable when I was at work.
Despite this, I'm glad I bought it. It was totally worth the money.
