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 liked how easy it was to use but soon after it wouldn't connect to my computer due to a faulty connector in the player. Amazon got me a replacement and it worked for a couple of weeks then the headphone jack in the player would no longer work. I sent it back for a refund. Overall poor quality.
It has a very cheap feel, and the screen freezes. My son has to keep restarting it for it to work. It does not have blue tooth, which I didn't realize before buying it. I am very disappointed with this and don't have the box to return it which is frustrating.
We have purchased several different brands of inexpensive MP3 players from amazon. They’ve all worked great. This one wouldn’t upload songs to it, right out of the box. I had a very disappointed son on his birthday.
Another cheap product from a foreign country. I bought this to allow an 8 year old to listen to audio books from Audible. I figured the price was such that if it was lost or stolen the amount of tears shed would be few. The instructions are written in a translated format and do not make a lot of sense. The player can't register in iTunes or Audible and therefore audio books can't be replayed. It is of no use to me.
You get what you pay for. The main problem is how user unfriendly and nonintuitive it is. I am NOT a luddite. I can usually figure out tech just by playing around with it. I've been trying for three days without success to make heads or tails of this thing.
First, the menu, button functions and navigation are confounding. Look at the first answer in the questions section with step by step directions for playing songs. There are 10 steps!
Second, I cannot get it to burn a CD. I connected via usb to my computer, created a folder on the device, dragged and dropped the tracks from my CD, all seemed well. It took me forever to find the folder on the device because it's so hard to navigate. When I finally found the folder, following the 10 steps, it was empty. When I plug it into the computer I can see the tracks in the folder. But not on the device itself once I remove it from the computer. The instructions that come with the device are all but useless. "Please use the USB or a card reader to make the contact the micro sd card to your computer, drag the files or folders to the card." That's it. Sounds simple, but it just didn't work for me.
Under "music," the tiny direction insert lists supported formats, "options while paused" (random) "options during playback," how to play and pause and skip to previous and next songs. Nothing about how to get to the menus that allow you to do those things. Everything I try just leads me to the two preloaded songs on the device. Bad instructions aren't unusual for cheap devices, but there is literally no brand name on the player or the box. The company that's selling it, "xidehuy," doesn't have a website that I can find. So there's no online manual or directions except what you can glean from the questions and answers on the Amazon product page.
Do yourself a favor and spend a little extra money to avoid wasting time trying to figure this thing out and the hassle of returning it (or not bothering and just eating the 20 bucks).
