Good: Absolutely Everything
Bad: At the time I got it nothing but now i need more memory
Comment: This player is the best I have ever seen or had. What more can I say. The only thing that can better it will be the next clix.
Good: Great Screen, intuitive navigation, weighs next to nothing
Bad: Not compatible with MAC OS
Good: Ogg Vorbis support, open source games and navigation. Perfect sound quality, brilliant display.
Bad: Potential to get scratched easily if you don't buy protective covers.
Comment: I was looking for an MP3 player that supported a good range of file formats including Ogg Vorbis. This was the thing that caught my eye in the shops although when i picked it up in the shops the screen felt like a see-saw and it put me off briefly cause i thought it was badly built. Then when i switched it on i realised it was the method of navigating where the faceplate is actually a 2-axis rocker switch. Even though it's more a more expensive player, it's far better value than the iPod nano which is what my mates got at the time. You're not restricted to WMP or iTunes either, which i liked because i use neither and would detest using anything like that. Another thing I found once i'd bought it was that there are a good range of free Flash games/themes made by Clix enthusiasts in Korea (where i believe it's very popular) available to download on various sites and this is something you simply don't get with the big brands. The attention to detail is impressive too, if you connect it to your computer you can decide whether it goes into transfer only or if you can still play music while it recharges of the USB connection -- Wallpaper changes colour through day to day -- Alarm buzzer and music alarm -- comprehensive Now Playing info screen with next track caption -- small dedicated volume adjustment buttons that still work even when Hold is on -- a wide depth of volume range level that goes quiet enough to sleep to. Overall there's every little thing on this gadget that i'd like from a music player so that's why it gets a perfect from me.
