This really is an impressive gadget, producing a remarkable sound from a 2-inch cube!
As a previous reviewer noted, you cannot access the card content through the USB lead, which is only for charging, so if you want to add or reorder songs, you need to take the card out, and edit it on your computer. (Many micro SD cards come with an SD adapter, which will fit into most card readers, including those built in to a typical PC or laptop; you can also buy USB adapters.)
And yes, the menus are initially in Chinese, so you have to navigate to the language menu and then choose the second entry! You can work it out from the leaflet enclosed (which is in English).
Just a few other niggles that make me give it only 4*
1) When your card is back in the cube, it is possible to navigate the directory tree using the buttons on the front, though you have to learn to get the timing right: you only have a few seconds before the 'explorer' program times out, but it is a bit slow to respond to a button press. Before I got the hang of this, I was going to send the gadget back, as it's not much good having 2000 songs on your card if you can't get to the one you want fairly easily.
2) You have the possibility of repeat play, continuous play, random play, folder play or folder repeat. However there is no facility to play a single track and stop - unless you put the single track in a folder on its own. I appreciate that other customers may not be interested in doing this, but it was something that I wanted to be able to do.
3) For FM radio, you need to be connect the supplied cable which will act as an antenna.
But overall, a good buy!
