Worth the money

This review is from: 5star sales ltd 8GB MP4 PLAYER 5TH GEN WITH FM RADIO AND CAMERA (NOT AN APPLE IPOD) mp4 player dispatched by amazon random colour shipped ONE OF black,silver,blue,green,red,purple comes boxed (Electronics)
Turned on. Deleted the Celine Dion song. Filled the whole 8GB with my musical goodness. Using WMP, no problem there. Just drag the albums onto the sync list. The player sometimes displays the file name instead of the song title, e.g. Song.wmv or 01.Song.wmv instead of Song. And songs are in alphabetical order instead of album order. I can live with this, if you cant, then consider something else. There might even be a way to fix this, I don't know. The controls and menus are a bit fiddly, but I got my eye in after 5 minutes or so. You get this with any new electrical device. Listened to a few songs, the sound quality was complete gash. Tried it with my decent headphones, and that was sorted. Sound quality improved tenfold. There is sometimes a faint high-pitched sound through the headphones when menu-scrolling. Can't work out how to shuffle. There's a wee shuffle symbol at the top corner when music is playing, but songs play in order.
I didn't buy it for the camera/videos/games. But if you want to know, the camera is pretty low-quality. It's pretty cool. It's got black and white/negative/sepia and all that s***. White balance/brightness. Different shutter sounds. So it's alright. Extras: Snake, pretty standard snake game. Good for if your bored I suppose... Calculator, stopwatch, calendar all do what they say on the tin. There's a jokebook!!! The only bit I found funny was the fact there was a jokebook in an MP3 player. And all the punctuation is replaced with £'s and %'s and copyright thingymajig's and various other symbols. The voice recorder works, has a high pitched noise in the background. And sounds very lo-fi. If you like that sort of thing. I like lo-fi. It sounds cool.
So, all-in-all. Does the job, not perfect, but just remember how much you paid for it.
