Can't believe my luck!!
Purchased at the reduced price of £89.99, which is an absolute bargain.
Design is fantastic and sturdy, and the positioning of the headphone jack on the underside is not as awkward as you would first think.
Sound is astonishing - the FullSound feature truly does make a noticeable difference.
I have also been able to use an old Motorola phone charger to charge the player, with no problems - useful if you know you won't be near a computer (on holiday for instance). Just make sure it's mini-USB and you're sorted!!
2 minor negatives are that the scrolling system can be time-consuming due to having to press the button repeatedly to scroll through titles with no real useful fast-scroll.
Also not convinced this thing has 30 hour battery life for music, but should last about 8 hours between charges - which is plenty.

Great sounds on the move
I have an extensive music collection, so the capacity of the memory allows me to carry a wide range of music genres to access on the move, depending on what I like to listen to at a particular time. Sound quality is excellent, with options to change EQ settings to suit location. The radio feature is fantastic - being able to listen to my radio programs is a big bonus. However, the best features are: 1, the voice record facility, so I can record my thoughts on quantum physics and develop theories on time travel, and 2, the price - I bought it from the clearance section and saved about 50% of the original retail price. Result - QED!

Couldn't get this to work
Couldn't get the initial product to work; a replacement was no better. I found the instructions very difficult to follow; loading items was difficult; I found it all but impossible to select items to play; all the machine would do was turn on, then turn off again. Overall, a very frustrating experience.
