Great, great little player
on May 11, 2012
I have about 20 hours per week while working that can I listen to various podcasts and ebooks, so I've owned a lot of different mid to low price mp3 players over the last 10 yrs or so. This one may be the best I've owned yet. For starters, the little clip is very handy. The interface and file system is better than most, the buttons are well designed and intuitive and the home key is very handy. Its compatible with WMA-based DRM-protected ebooks from the library which is a problem with many brands - I also tried it with an Audible ebook "aa file" - it sees it, but it doesn't play, big surprise Audible doesn't work on anything I've ever owned, I blame Audible, not the player. I love how the fast forwarding and rewinding accelerates on large files as some of my files are 1 to 3 hours long - there's nothing worse than losing your place an hour an a half into a file and only being able to fast forward with a slow player at a speed barely faster than play speed. The only thing I con I can think of about it is the lack of a lock key. Don't hesitate to buy this one, you should be able to find it on sale at some time or another for about $30 as I did.
