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.
It's small and light similar to the 5th generation iPod nano, I wont fit in the same cases though. The wheel is all buttons, it's not a touchpad/touchwheel, it just looks like it. Menu navigation is simple and intuitive. It came with a simple pair of dollar store earbuds. The audio quality is ok, better headphones can improve this to a point. If you have premade playlist folders you can put them directly on the mp3 play when it's plugged into your computer. It has 3 "on the go" playlists you can make, but they only hold 100 songs each, I have over 13k songs. You can use micro SD cards to expand the device's memory capacity. It can play video and display pictures but the picture quality is low. It didn't come with an Instruction manual. My biggest problem with it is that it doesn't play certain file types. It's ok, you can do much worse but you can get something better too.
I brought the RUIZU MP3 Player to use to listen to my albums. I would have my album folders with the track numbers in it's proper order. I would drag the folder into the player, but when I would open an album and play it, it would start on track 7 instead of the beginning. Then I notice on another album it did not have all of the tracks that I had in the folder.
This player along with others that are similar are not album friendly. They are good for listening to podcasts or if you are the type of person that just listens to one particular song from an artist and then move on to the next. I have Soul and Jazz albums I like to listen to like I would on vinyl. Maybe I'm old school like that, but thats how I like to listen to my music.
This Mp3 player/radio does a lot more than you really need it to do and in doing so does them all pretty poorly. As far as actually playing music it is a decent mp3 player. I have had 2 major issues with this mp3 player but while they are easily solvable for me they might not be for other people. Adding files to this is simple if you understand how files on a usb work you simply drag and drop your music into the music section of the mp3 files and it will be playable if it is in the mp3 format.
Picture quality is absolutely abysmal. Radio seems to work great. Voice recording, Book reading, video playing all suck on this device. I'm not sure why that is even in here but i assume it is to be like the originial ipods that could do the same.
The only reason I gave this 3 stars is because of the two major problems I encountered while using it. First one is that the music will randomly stop playing/working and only turning it off and on again will work.
The second is that somehow even though I did not do anything out of the ordinary all my files on the device stopped working. They simply said it was not compatible/playable on the device and when i connected it to my computer all the files were corrupted.
Love the player but the volume is inconsistent and the ear buds are lame. When I set the volume, as soon as I hit set.. the volume drops. Ear buds are tinny and keep falling out of my ears. If you do buy this player, I recommend you buy a good set of ear buds or headphones. I hooked up my PC headphones to this player and the sound quality was MUCH better
The player works well. The fault is mine that it will play MP3 and not MP4. It was a gift for my son who had a 4GB player that ran out of space. This one has plenty of space, but I had to find his CDs to convert them to MP3.
There are almost no instructions. I am not that old, but I have no idea how to use most of the features. Also, there is a short in the earbuds and I have to tap the wires to make the distortion stop. I do not think I would recommend this item.
