Tricky to use but works well once you get the hang of it
on 19 May 2013
It looks very like a certain American brand and has the same dock (25 pin?) but it ain't the same. That said it's no where near the price so fair enough. The sound quality is excellent, and it has great battery life and decent volume. Ours is used in the wife's car via a jack plug I already had and it's great... except the menus are tricky to get used to. Because it's clone of a Apple it has 'menu' written on it, but that button would be better labelled as 'select'. The button doesn't scroll, it's just five buttons really. And the shuffle is pants. Can't get it to work well at all... and I think I am pretty technical. The dock pin also only charges and transfers songs (dead easy file drag and drop) but doesn't work in an Apple dock I have. Fair enough, no one said it would but I stabbed for this one over others on the site because it might so people might like to know these things. The screen's really too small for anything other than song selection too.
But it works well, stores all the songs, plays back all the formats I put in it at different compression ratios (other mp3s I have had don't do this) and means there are always songs in the car when the radio gets too bad to tolerate. The delivery was fine and I'd use this firm again. Pretty good all in all.
