I purchased the 4G version. In addition to playing all your favorite MP3 music, audio books, or FM radio, this little jewel is excellent for listening to recorded natural sounds such as ocean waves, rain, and creeks. The player has sleep mode that can be set to turn off after 2 hours. So, I load it up with ten or more minutes of ocean waves and have it repeat. It helps mask off background noises, like snoring from my wife, so I use this player to help me get to sleep. I also use it on the road when I travel to play audio books through my car speakers. My local Walmart didn't carry this item, so I had it shipped to the store for pickup. Excellent Value and Features.
Easy to use.
No need to load any software to work with a PC. Syncs quite well using Microsoft Media Player version 11. Excellent file management built into the player. FM radio has excellent sensitivity and selectivity. It can record from FM radio and has best results in sound quality when it is receiving a strong FM station. Can be set to stereo or MONO for better sound quality. For weak stations, there is background clicking noise that can be heard during recording, but not a real issue. Noise free for strong stations during recording. Gets better reception than most table top alarm clock radios. The audio sound is quite good when using high quality ear buds. Recorded music above 128kbps sounds even better. Only negative comment is that you cannot replace the battery. When the battery fails, consider it a throw away item. If that happens, I will just buy another one.
