Comment: I've had this mp3 player for about 4 years. The battery life is still very good - I can plug it into the car driving 6 hours plus and it easily lasts the journey and the return. It's very light so if you drop it it doesn't matter as it doesn't have a hard enough impact to break anything. The sens-me channels are not always that accurate but energetic and extreme are ok and they're probably the ones you'd want the most if you go to the gym. Had to re-load the songs on it once as it had a problem with recognising the songs but since I've done that I've had no problems with it. Used to use the iplayer and the music videos and they worked fine but don't really bother with them anymore. On the whole after 4 years and a lot of use + it always being in my bag when I'm not using it, I think this mp3 is pretty good quality.
Good: sound quality,ease of use, compact size, price. hard to beat
Bad: nothing, great mp3 player
Comment: I have had mine 4yrs, taken on many holidays, so compact in size but big on sound", replaced broken earphones with Sennheiser ie6 in ear phones,sounds amazing, real punchy bass,,but still clear no distortion in mid range, using equalizer in custom 1 or 2 settings to tweak sound ,I listen to metal or acoustic music all sound good, I am also going to buy a Cowan J3 to compare
