I bought this for my 8 year-old. I liked that it was not only an mp3 player but a camera and video recorder/player. This is not meant to be your hi-tech camera. It's the same quality as many camera phones. Outdoor daytime photos would obviously look better than indoor photos because of the available light. When comparing, compare to a similar item. Video is not the quality of a hi-tech HD video cam. I knew this buying it. It's perfect as a mp3 Player that just happens to include a "fun camera." It says right on the device that you need to tap the screen with a fingernail or the included stylus (cleverly hidden in the design!) so if you are having trouble tapping with your fingertips as you would your own phone or ipod/ipad it is because it is not the same type of screen. Those items require finger taps while this one doesn't. It is not a capacitive screen-- it is a resistive screen. If you are wanting something that works with your fingertips you need to buy something that is designed to do so. My son is quite happy with it and once I explained how the screen worked (I have a tablet with capicitive screen) he was on his way. I haven't used any of the software. I already had songs on my tablet so I plugged it into the usb of my pc and plugged the ematic in the other usb at the same time. Once both drives showed, I dragged the music from my tablet to the ematic. Therefore, I cannot speak about the software. If the songs are on your computer, just drag them over to the ematic's music folder. I did put an avi movie on there to test it, but of course it said it wasn't compatible, so I guess I will have to try the software to convert a movie to try that. The test movie clip that came on it looked pretty good for the cost/size of this little device. I tried the radio, and once I figured out what all the buttons meant, I found and saved many radio stations. Radio only works with the headphones in -- this is normal -- my phone does the same. Also, my husband didn't like how some of the songs sounded (I didn't notice) so he went in the the settings and manually adjusted the sound functions until he was happy with it. For my purposes, it does exactly what I thought it would. It does everything it says it should! In that case, it earns a great rating from us!

As far as MP3 players go this is a really neat device to play with. The touch screen is really neat and all the media functions work great. I use the video player all the time. The expandable storage makes a lot of available space so it’s actually practical for videos as well as music. The camera is ok and it works well as a webcam. I’d recommend to anyone looking for a cheap and effective alternative media player.

This works so well, I’ve had it a few weeks now and I haven’t encountered any issues at all which is pretty amazing considering the price. I’ve used all of the features and am just extremely pleased with it overall. A really great bargain.

Got this for my 9 yr old son for xmas. I got my 10 yr old daughter an Ipod nano and she likes her brothers mp3 player better.. So I have to get one of these for her birthday now for next mth and give her Ipod to her father.. LOL My son dropped it already a few times in the past 3 days and its still working perfectly. If they are happy I am happy.. Me and their father are Ipod people but the kids are obviously Ematic kids!!! =-)

I read some of the bad reviews, honestly, most were probably just defective or the person was too picky. I'm 14 and I think it works perfectly! This is an amazing mp3, it has so many features, it doesn't come with a wall charger, but, you can get things that have a USB port, and also hook into the wall ( mine came with my iPad 2, but you can buy them separate ) that work for charging it. I love it, my sister has an iPod, but she likes my mp3 better! That says ALOT! My favorite feature is the radio, it picks up 93.3, pretty much the only channel I listen to, and you can record the song AS YOU HEAR IT ON THE RADIO!!!! Is that cool or what? You're headphones act as an anntena, so it doesn't work well without headphones, I don't like the ones it came with though. It has the game Mine, which works great, and has a great camera! It's easy to download media, PEOPLE THIS IS AN AWESOME STEAL FOR $45!!!!!! I don't know what people are complaining about! It doesnt take NEARLY 4 hours to charge, it took 45 minutes for mine!!! I am in LOVE with this thing!!!
