To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I love many features of this mp3 player. It is very small and light, super easy to transfer files to from my computer, and the sound quality is really good, even with cheap earbuds. The only drawback, which unfortunately is a big problem for me, is that it stops playing.
I use this to listen to music while I'm working out, so I don't want to fiddle with it. But frequently, it stops and I need to press the Play button again. Then frequently, when I press Play, instead it acts as if I pressed the Back button, and dumps me into settings. And then it can be very hard to get back to Play. I have to stop my workout, and keep trying to get back to Play, but it gets me stuck in a loop that keeps dumping back into Settings. Finally, I have to turn it off then on and start over, and that includes going back to settings, to put it back on Shuffle, then exiting that to get back to Play. I have lost so much time fiddling with it.
It's really too bad, as otherwise it is an excellent little player, and if it didn't have this issue, it would be perfect.
I bought this to store and play children’s music in my classroom via a portable speaker. My only regret is that I didn’t buy one with more storage. I could have used more storage! But it’s a nice Mac compatible, affordable MP3 player.
