After reading reviews about various mp3 players I settled on this little blighter.
It’s small and compact as you can see. It’s the 1GB model, which is sufficient for me to be able to get 8-10 hours of music and podcasts onto.
I got it primarily to play audiobooks, and podcasts, but as it has DRM built in, I can also use it on Napster’s To Go service as well, which in my opinion is darn good value for unlimited downloads for only $14.99 a month.
It takes an AAA battery which has an advertised life of around 19 hours, and it seemed to hold to this quite well.
The sound quality is excellent. It’s much better than I expected it to be. Usually the earplugs you get with such a product are quite tinny and nasty, but these are quite good, with a decent bass response and clear treble.
You can play MP3, WMA, and Audible Audiobooks on this device.
It also has an FM radio, with 20 presets, and you can also record your own voice. It synchronizes flawlessly with Windows Media Player ( I have version 11 on the Windows XP machine here). I’ve not yet tried it on a Linux set up.
This little baby set me back $38.99 at Office Depot, as they were doing a special deal on them when I walked in.
