Bought the MP860 version of this player before Christmas and last week my dear wife accidental bundled it up in the washing and gave the player and earphones a 60 degree wash + fabric softener! After shaking out the water I opened up the case, removing the board and battery and leaving these outside in the sun for two days. Picking up the now dry circuit board with its battery hanging off it I pressed the on button.... the screen lit up, a bit dim and blotchy but it worked! Plugging in the now dry earphones I had music, even the Transcend micro sd card was OK!
I was already impressed with the player and it's incredible toughness demonstrated by the ordeal it had gone through made me immediately purchase a replacement (Now upgraded to an MP870 with additional file types).
Using the player is simple. Downloading music, video, pictures and books is very easy through Windows Media Player.
A great bonus is the ability to record direct from tape, CD and record players (and it's own radio). I was able to record a valuable family tape recording from a tape player and then transfer the now digital file onto CD!
Memory of the 870 is 8 GB as standard and has a Micro SD for memory expansion.
Great little player!

Bought this MP3 player for my 12 year old daughter for her birthday and she is thrilled to bits with it. It is easy to use has a great sound, for anyone looking for a well priced but quality Mp3 we would highly recommend it. Can't go wrong at this price.

A beneficial MP3 Player especially since you can change the speed of lectures, recordings etc. Listen with headphones or without. Good sound with A-B playback so that you repeat again and again a specific part- just what I needed.

hi guys...my English is not good enough but i will try to express my opinion.I firmly believe that mp870 is one of my best choices that i have ever had.Very good firmware ,big battery ,well-built,plus micro sd and great sound.the only drawback i think are the head sets.considering all this and the fact that i was a previous owner of two sansa clip+ and a bunch of others mp3, i definitely suggest transcend mp870.

Works nicely. 16 Dec 2012

This mp3 player has an input jack, which is rare, and very handy. Plays well, has external speaker, which is also hard to find. Music saved to internal memory plays back nicely. The only drawback so far is that it is very slow if you try to play from a micro SD card. I have tried several class 10 micro sd cards with the same extremely slow result. I've decided not to bother with the micro sd card and just put my most important music on the internal memory.

Transcend MP870 4 Sep 2011
By makbari - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I only purchased this item because of the line in recording feature and didn't expect that it's gonna replace my ipod. However It has a great internal capacity of 8gb and relatively user friendly. Just drag and drop and it will play. Once you turn it on you'll have to navigate using the navigation pad in the front but it is a bit slow to respond. I recorded a conversation to test the quality. It took a while to work out how to play back the recording. I also have not been able to delete this test file and wish that they would include an option in the menu to do this. I can't seem to change the file name for a recorded piece. If you record multiple lectures or meetings in a day, it just names them according to the date and them numbers them 1, 2, 3, etc. This makes it difficult to find a specific recording later on. May be the idea is to transfer these recordings to your computer and then change the file names from there. Anyway for the price and the specific function of line in recording I am happy with it.

Best of Breed 31 July 2013
By Jeffrey - Published on Amazon.com

This is an incredible machine. I love it. I have several Sony players, which are very good. I also have a good Sandisk which has limitations but I would also recommend it for the versatility, compact size and the price. In the past, I had several Zen players, which I found too large, too pricey, and I never had one that lasted much beyond the warranty period. Of them all, I would take Transcend above them all by far.

This one does everything I need from and MP3 player almost perfectly. It's one downside is that it is bulkier than any of the others save the incredibly clunky Zen. The up side of the Transcend player includes:
1. Versatility. It plays everything. I like .flac and .shn files and it is the only one that handles all of them.
2. Sound quality is really good, although here I would give a slight nod to a high end Sony. Not by much though. The range is almost as good at a better price.
3. Price. It costs more than the ever reliable Sandisk, but it is worth it for versatility.
4. It handles audiobooks with ease. It gets a big nod over Sony here. Sony handles the files, but all post-Series E Sony's reject anything with DRM which is irritating for those of us who download audiobooks from the library. Big plus here.
5. Screen. The screen is almost identical to the way overpriced IPod. It is crystal clear and packed with track info. It also has a lyrics option for those who don't find this annoying. A good way to learn English for non-native speakers tho.
6. Speaking of overpriced IPods, Transcend can be loaded from Windows Explorer. No need to hassle with ITunes!!
7. It allows an external memory card. I have a 30 gig card with an 8 gig device. It doesn't have the IPod's memory. Neither does it have the ridiculous price and who uses 100 gigs really anyway? Did I say no ITunes?
8. The screen is good for videos. I never use an MP3 player for this. The Kindle is the best platform for vids, but I had to try it. It trumps Sony and Sandisc here because of the wide screen.
9. It works also as a digital recorder. I do interviews in my work and it backs up my digital recorder. It also works to record your valuable insights if you have any.
10. It has a ton of file management features which are very easy to use. Everything is wonderfully intuitive. The quick start guide is really good but I would strongly recommend that you go to their website and download the full user's manual to take you through the cool things it can do with files.
11. Finally, the battery seems about immortal. I let it charge a few days when it first came in. I play it all night sometimes and the thing is hardly dented.
12. The built in speaker trumps all the others. This is a great feature.
13. I hope it is also as durable as Sony and Sandic. Time will tell.

My one peeve is that my files are not alphabetized. The reason might be that I recorded them from Explorer when I had it set to list files by date rather than name. If anyone has a fix for this short of pulling everything off to my hard drive and then recording them back in alphabetical order I would really appreciate hearing it!
It's worth the cash. Highly recommended!

Good MP3 player.... But poor MP4 player.. 31 Mar 2013
By RAJA RAMALINGAM - Published on Amazon.com
It has all great features of an MP3 player like large storage capacity, good sound quality (of course with a better headphone), various EQ modes, Bookmarks etc. Large screen display with song details etc is very good. MP4 quality is mediocre comparing with present day Smartphone OLED qualities. Once we are accustomed with those high video quality, we will not feel like even trying that (at least I don't use for videos). It could have some additional features like renaming file names, particularly mic and line in file names because one will not remember the occasion when it was recorded after few weeks. Ebook feature is useless, again when one is used to high end devices like iPad, kindle etc.

Transcend TS8GMP870 24Inch 8 GB Video MP3 Player White 4 Nov 2011
By A Reader - Published on Amazon.com

Awesome little MP3 player with lots of capacity and a decent price. The number one reason I purchased this is the built in speaker, which is really hard to find on an MP3 player these days. Purchased to replace a Samsung MP3 player that also had a built in speaker, but that model was discontinued so I guess I have to try a different brand.
