Tricky start but lasts well
on 6 September 2010
My only criticism of this player is that it took me quite a while to get it to start playing my music. The paper guide is so difficult to read that I literally have to 'play it by ear'! First you press and hold the round button at the clipping end of the player for a few seconds until you hear an electronic chime. You release the button and press the front panel of the player. It took a while for me to figure out how to use the player, but now I've got it!
Once you are up and running the charge life and sound quality are both very good. I charged up for about 3 hours and got about as much playing time out of it. 4GBs at this price is brilliant value, and this player is perfect for accompanying activity. I participated in a 5K run yesterday and wore the GoGear throughout, and then all the way back home - and it performed well. So once you've got it on, you've got a steal!
