Summary: During my Friday ritual of kissing the wife, leaving the house to work, and picking up the Fry's ad, I saw something that caught my eye: 5GB MP3 PLAYER $129. So, I headed directly there, with a healthy dose of skepticism, and purchased it. The ... read more

Cons: Short battery life, play back sucks

Pros: Sorry, can't think of any
Cons: Constantly locks up, 2 hour or less battery life
Summary: By far the worst electronic experience I've ever had. They should include a reset tool because you'll be doing alot of reseting. It constantly locks up and that's not the worst of it. They advertise a 16 hour playback try maybe 2 hours. Also absolutely ... read more
