Just got my new MP3 player today as I’m sick of having to switch CDs around in the car. After forgetting to switch on the power point to charge it, I got it charged and running happily. Installed the latest firmware update to get all the current features of it running, and then loaded some music on it. The touchscreen interface is great 🙂 Much easier than fiddling with buttons to figure out what they all mean in different screens. Playing some music listening to it now as I type this – works quite well. There’s a heap of audio enhancement options too so that you can make it sound just how you like 🙂 SD card expandability, and (this is what sold me it vs a few other devices out there) support for newer SDHC cards, so that it can be expanded from the 4G built in memory upto (so far) 12G. That’s more than enough for all of my music 😀 Oh, and the price is only marginally (3% roughly*) more expensive than a 4G iPod Nano. And with all the extra features, and not needing to be tied to the iTunes software, I think it’s more than worth it.
*totally guessing. it’s $12 difference from where I ordered it
