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 just bought 7 MP3 players, one ate my MicroSD HC Memory Card. The rest of them would just turn off after a few minutes, maybe operator error, but what I paid was close to $35.00 for them and they all failed within 8 to 10 minutes. I decided that a good MP3 player should cost more than 5 bucks. I found this MP3 player.... good reviews long battery life and we'll see how long it lasts. The sound is great, I just hope that the screen doesn't die. My only wish that there was a random playback mode. (it may be Operator Error)
Sept. 18 last night the switching buttons broke, into the the case. I have no playback because it will no longer turn on. Too bad, I loved this little guy.
I bought another and again it sounded great.... but this time the battery wouldn't hold a charge for more than 2-3 hours. Replacing it with another.
I don't know if this was in the product description, and I just missed it, but the player itself has no built in memory. It requires a Micro SD card, which it doesnt come with. Luckily, my mom came to the rescue with a spare SD card, so I don't need to return the product. As for the player itself, it's nothing super special, but it had more features than I was expecting at this price. It has one small puzzle game, called BoxMan, can support a variety of different file types for music, videos, and even Ebooks. It also has FM radio. It does not come with instructions, only a FAQ and a small diagram of what the buttons do, but the device is straight forward enough that it doesnt really need instructions. All in all, I'm satisfied for the time being, but we'll see how it holds up with daily use.
Just recieved this yesterday and it wont charge. Ive left it on its charging cord all night i took it off and it powered on for 2 seconds before saying low power and going off. Either this product is damaged or just sucks...I knew it wasnt going to be great quality for 12 dollars but I liked the idea of the warranty, now lets see if thats any good. I plan to contact shipper will update review later.
UPDATE: Nobody has contacted me...cant even get a response from this seller...would give 0 stars if i could! Warranty indeed! SCAM is more like it!
The description of this device was confusing, so it can't meet my needs with audiobooks. It is very hard to locate instructions on how to download onto the device. I wasted a lot of time to finally figure out that it doesn't work. I am returning the device.
Bought this for my son to replace similar model that needed to be replaced due to typically little boy wear and tear. However description says "Expandable to 64GB: Card slot provided for more music and audiobooks etc,max support 64GB TF card.（Note：the card is not include)" giving the impression that the card simply allows for more memory. What it does not indicate is that it has no internal memory itself, so the card is required (not simply to expand memory) so that is annoying because he was upset it wouldn't work and couldn't initially figure out why.
Fix that description and I'd be fine with it. It has a headphone jack to plug in his headphones or speaker, small/thin easy to carry, and battery life is "meh" nothing wonderful or horrible; after looking at reviews after we figured it why it wouldn't work I didn't have issues with turning on or off. Same build as his previous MP3, so my concern was that the on/off button is a slide at the button (as opposed to a button so I don't have to wrory this time that it will become dislodged inside again) but for $14 it's okay you just need to purchase a card with it.
I bought 2 of these for my girls for there birthday, they love them, very durable, they love the games, music, and photo and videos the device offers, and the battery last a long time to, i was worried the button plate may start to loosen and come off before i bought them however they are still in great shape and we've had them sometime, great product! Would definitely buy again!
Let's be quick. Decent Audio sound. Decent Photo quality. Better VERY careful inserting the memory card. It can EASILY slip in between case and the reader and you'll most likely have to take it apart to get it out. ** The Video.... AMV is a Chinese codec, but being an experienced with codecs, it didn't bother me. It's a nightmare. It's difficult to find a converter and even then, the player is very fussy about which files to play. NOT worth the headache. Most likely returning it.
The first one died in less than a week and wouldn't power on. Amazon shipped me a replacement, and the second one is doing pretty well so far, but it's not getting used every day either.
Control buttons feel flimsy, and the interface is not standard (i.e., the center button in a circle of other buttons has always been the OK/Enter button -- not this one. Gotta re-learn it, though my 9-year old has no trouble with it, because she has no preconceptions about what an interface should be :) ).
I wish someone would have told me before I bought the product, that it DOES NOT come with the mini sd card. You have to buy that separately. Other than that, it is a decent product. If I needed to buy again, I would look for one where the mini sd card is included. Would not buy this one for that reason only. The quality of the sound is decent.
