5.0 out of 5 stars Great little player, 25 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Transcend MP870 TS8GMP870 Portable Media Player ( MP3 Playback,Built-In Radio ) (Electronics)
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!
