Unlike other reviewers, this is my first MP4 player for many years, and my hus is rather IT fluent, so I cannot review by comparison to other models nor initial set-up arrangements. I chose this as it was ranked high among "Which?" consumer review site and I did not want to spend over this level of money. My main use is to listen to music with satisfactory good sound quality, and to occasionally entertain my 4-year-old while travelling. Therefore above-average sound and screen quality (for this price level)were key points. My hus uploaded some music and iplayer and said it was easy enough. Then I tried myself downloading several music under his instruction, again with ease. I have not tried radio yet. The equipment is easy to use, and unlike other reviewers, I have not experienced problems with pressing buttons or having to reset it. Battery lasts long enough for me (so far I have never run out in the middle of use). The machine is so small and light. It would be nicer if the headset code has clip or something to stabilise it. Anyway, if I were asked if I would recommend it to others, yes, on conditions as the above.
