Broke after a month
on 3 December 2014
Only reason I'm not giving it 1 star is that it did work for a few weeks, and batteries last long with it. BUT. The reason batteries last long is because it has no screen, meaning you won't know where you left off if you accidentally jump to the next track. When you're listening to multi-hour speeches that gets very annoying. Not only do you not know where you were, also finding it again is a real pain. You have no idea how "fast" fast forward is. Also it seems to go at a certain speed, but if you keep holding the button it jump to a higher speed after a while, not sure after how much time and not sure what speed, but if you just press it you advance like a minute in like 10 seconds, but if you keep pressing for about a minute it reaches the end of a 3-hour tape.
Apart from that, the only problem is that it broke after about a month of use. It will switch on, battery fine, headphones fine, re-loaded mp3s, no sound. Lucky I had already ordered a Sony instead, just waiting for delivery, it was no good without a screen, but now it's simply no good. Except as a USB stick. But why buy a 4GB for a tenner if you get 32GB for £14?
Last piece of advice, don't EVER buy an mp3 player with no screen.
