    Colour Name: Red Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    This mp4 player does the job of playing mp3 and video and has a decent amount of storage for a good price, but as other reviewers mentioned it is quite frustrating to use, which is disappointing as it sounded quite simple from the small instruction slip enclosed. It's good that you can just drag and drop to load up the files onto the player, but actually using the player is where it can be difficult. I have still not been able to find how to get out from the audio or video menu back to the main menu without resorting to turning it off and on again. The enclosed slip says that a short press on the middle button would bring you back, but it does not work when playing audio or video as it turns into a play/pause button. The other frustrating thing is that it does not play mp4 (I thought it would as its called mp4 player) so you have to convert the files into amv using the software enclosed. It was fairly easy to install, although i did find it a bit tricky to use at first, admittedly i am not that technically minded, but its not particularly intuitive software and the help menu there was not great as it was in broken English. My other complaint is that the picture viewing capabilities are extremely disappointing, the image does not fill even half of the screen. They come up tiny which makes the function pretty pointless. I can view images much better on my phone so wouldn't bother putting any more on here.
    As for the good points, this player does look appealing and is small and compact. Once you get the video files on they play fine and luckily do take up the whole screen unlike the pictures. If you dont mind the files just playing in a random order then it is fine. I am going to use it for my children to watch and listen to theme tunes of their tv programmes and songs, so it will do the job but for someone using a mp3 or mp4 player daily and having their files organised into albums then you would be better off getting a more well known and user friendly brand.

    Colour Name: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    Although I've never heard of Sweex before this little MP4 player is good looking, compact and thin, very much like the Apple Ipod. The similarity might stretch to the initial look of the navigation buttons and maybe even sound but the that's just abaout all. It comes supplied with a short USB to Mini-USB cable to charge your Sweex from a computer. Alternatively you can buy 3 pin plugs from ebay that convert to a USB so that you can charge the unit from the mains plug. Headphones and very basic layout instructions and a software CD are also included.
    Getting music onto your Sweex is very simple as you just need to plug the USB cable into your computer and attach the Sweex to the Mini-usb end. In My Computer, you should see your MP4 player as another drive letter. You can then use Windows Explorer to drag and drop folders or music files onto it. You should note however that your music file names as well as your folder names should only be limited to about 20 characters as this is all the Sweex will show you (even though it scrolls the title or folder name in a loop). I found it annoying that the name loops from first letter to last letter without any spaces making it a bit difficult to read.
    (e.g. if your file name is "Glee: The Music, Volume 3: Showstoppers- Hello, Goodbye" the Sweex will only show "Glee: The Music, VoluGlee: The Music, VoluGlee: The Music, Volu" and will continue in a loop)

    Navigation
    I initially found the navigation system counter-intuitive. With a standard Cross layout with a centre button you would have thought the centre button is select button- It's not it's the top button. Also scrolling down each menu list you need to use the left and right buttons for forwards and backwards.

    I am not a computer whizz kid and at first thought I would not be able to download my music and be mobile with it. The player arrived undamaged and well packaged and I followed the instructions and hey presto I am off and running with my music. I am highly delighted with my purchase.

    Colour Name: Pink Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    Great value product which vies with the competition in having 8GB storage facilities, a fanastic design especially for girls and just as good in every way as others almost twice the price. I liked this in particular because you are not so restricted to i tunes and can just add songs easily from your computer. Not restrictive like others on the market.

    Colour Name: Blue Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    The Sweex MP4 player looks like an Ipod Nano, with a compact curved case in a colour of your choice, and plays your music and displays your photos. But the similarities pretty much end there.

    On the plus side, the Sweex will play a variety of musical formats, including WMA files, so there's no need for file conversion with the Sweex. Loading was simple, just drag and drop your photos and music files. There's a voice recorder and you'll also pay a lot less for this than an Ipod with comparable capacity.

    As for the negatives, the main reason anyone would buy one of these would be to play music - and that where the main problem lies. I loaded on a couple of albums to try it out and found that once you have worked which buttons to press (the one marked with a play symbol isn't the one which plays the track!!!!!!!) the sound is atrocious, and I mean really atrocious, with the supplied earphones. There is no faciltiy for playlists, which I guess most people who are familiar with music players would want. The player only charges when connected via a USB port, which sounds fine until you consider how you would charge it if you were away from home for a time, say on holiday. As for Photos, the display size renders this facility worthless - you could hardly tell what was in the picture.

    All in all, my advice would be to save your money and investigate alternatives. If your money won't stretch to an Ipod, and let's face it they are expensive and not everyone's cup of tea, then Archos, Sony and a host of others have media players better than this and at only a few £££s more. AVOID
