Okay, first it was easy to transfer music onto. Second, it looked BEAUTIFUL. Third and most important, it was durable. How durable? Well, I gave this as a gift to my sister. She used it faithfully (everyday while running and swinging on the swing) for 8 months BEFORE she dropped it in a parking lot while it was raining very heavy and didn't discover it till the next morning. It had been run over and rained on...and STILL worked for 6 months after that before giving up the ghost! Take that!
