I've owned a handful of MP3 players and I must say this is the best one I've owned yet! First, this MP3 is not in my local Wal-Mart, so I took a chance when I ordered it online. I mainly got it because of the over the ear headphones in the display pic. I sweat soooo much when I workout that the normal ear buds always slide out. Boy am I glad I took that chance. When I opened it up and took everything out I was totally surprised to see the case and arm band...YES!! The case protects each and every inch of this MP3, and still gives you access to the charging port, earphone port, and power button. There is a thick plastic cover on the front that protects all of the buttons and display screen. If kept in the case for the entire time you own it, I guarantee in 5 years, heck even 10 years when you take it out it will look brand spanking new! The armband is cool and allows for easy access to the MP3 during workouts. It can hold a charge to me what seems like forever and a day. Keep in mind I work out 4 days a week for about 30-45 minutes - I've been going on a single charge for about a week now and I still have two bars left. The FM radio feature on this device is just like any other - programming your presets is a breeze. I will say that listening to the radio more than your music drains the battery faster...not sure why. Adding music to it is super easy, however I don't recommend using the Philips Songbird software. It would be way better if it didn't crash, force close, and not respond every twenty minutes. Very annoying when you're in the middle of transferring songs and then BAM it shuts down out of nowhere. Not sure if that's a developer issue or what, but fix that and my rating would be five stars without a doubt. If you can use Windows Media or have some type of hard drive or flash drive where your music is stored I would suggest using that - drag and drop all day.
