Very affordable at just $79.99. User-friendly interface. Its 1.2-inch screen is very sharp, colorful, and crisp. Transferring songs to the device was a breeze via USB. Incredible 18+ hour battery life. The included CD-ripping software converted an entire album in minutes.


Player did not come with a hand strap. Headphones were mediocre in terms of sound quality. Casing is not slip-resistant. No jog-wheel navigation.
