Brilliant little MP3 player. Bought mine to take with me into Hospital and didn't regret it.
Easy to Download the itunes and load up with all my music from my laptop. Pressed the Autofil button and it loaded everything on and I mean everything, even the sound files from the video editing programn I have. So recovering from an anaesthetic I suddenly heard my Daughters voice! Threw me a bit but was a nice suprize when I realised I wasn't hallucinating!
I have the 1 gb version and it holds just over 230 songs and lasted a 2 day hospital stay playing almost non stop, so battery life is pretty good too. The sound quality was amazing.
THE TECHNICAL BIT
In the neat little box it comes in is the mp3 player, a set of white basic ipod headphones (without in line volume control, but you dont really need it) and a charging doc with USB connection to charge and load on the computer. The ipod turns upside down and the headphone jack slips over a jack on the charger, an orange light flashes and you wait about 4 hours to fully charge, I also downloaded the itunes and installed them on while it was charging, then you can access your music files, it takes a bit of time to convert them but you have 4 hours to kill so doesnt matter (probably going to find out now it should be charged first but mine works ok)
When it is fully charged the light glows green and you press eject on the itunes page and disconnect. Plug in the headphones and off you go!
The white dial is simple vol up and down are the top and bottom of the dial and skip and go back are the right and left of the dial, press the middle to pause and play. Off button and shuffle buttons are on the bottom of the little unit and are a bit fiddly (not recommended for long nails or when hooked up to an intravenous drip!)
Its ok, you can wake up now, I have finished this epic review!
