It's 'ok', not great, but ok. It's a small unit, with fiddly buttons. Doesn't feel sturdy, but cheap/plastic feel in construction & design. Hard to navigate around the menus when 'on the go'. I find it chops off the intro to each song when played on 'shuffle' (good luck trying to work out turning on the shuffle mode). Slow USB transfer rate. If I lost it, I wouldn't buy it again to replace it.
