2-0 out of 5 stars Hardly any memory - too outdated for new PCs
Compared to other mp3 players, this is a piece of crap.Yes, it works, but it only holds about 30 songs, and when you go on a long run, it loops!How annoying.I ran a half marathon with this and heard all the songs 3 times!

Also when we bought a new PC, it wouldn't connect because it's so old.

1-0 out of 5 stars Piece of Crap, Don't Bother, Seriously
This item is a pure piece of crap! First of all it does not work well with WinXP. Had to find out the hard way it would only find the driver need if you have Win 2000 or 98. The frustration of trying to install the music was hardly worth it so that you can only download about 14 songs! If you have Win 2000 or 98 and want something that will only last you a couple of months, this is the product for you. Tried to contact Phillips, they act is if they didn't even realize they made this product. If you need a serious piece of equipment PLEASE DO NOT GO WITH PHILLIPS! Consider yourself warned, do not become a victim. I will never purchase another Phillips item again! I would give it zero stars, but hey i had to put something.

3-0 out of 5 stars I've bought 5 of these!! they go KAPOOT on you!!
Okay at first loved this even purchased the one with more memory 128 and the little window, however after some time they just up and die on you!! in fact I have 4 of these sitting in my car at this very minute that have all just died???? I'm going to get a box and send them all out to Phillips because this was ridiculous. I would recommend doing some major investigating for all the MP 3 players out there I have had my collection for about 2 years now. The arm band is handy, they are small enough not to get in your way, it holds enough music for a hour work out, down loading the music is fairly simple once you get the hang of it, but sometimes (it may just be my computer) the computer doesn't recognize that is it there.

Oh yea and the rubber buttons can become a challenge to press down on you end ruining the face of the player because sometimes you'll have to use your finger nails which eventually cuts into the rubber.

Respectfully reviewed

4-0 out of 5 stars A bit "iffy" but perfect for running/cycling
I bought this about a month ago for $50 since it was a pain to go for a run with a CD player in my hand.

INSTALLATION - Although it was a bit tricky to get it installed in WinXP (just download the drivers from the website and point to those manually for install - don't do auto), I was able to access the flash memory just fine.It has, however, caused sudden reboots on my PC soon after I transfer files to it so I usually reboot myself to avoid any problems.

ACCESORIES - The arm strap was the big selling point for me since I'd have nothing to carry.It comes with good headphones that don't fall off while running.I don't use the remote part since I mind as well just press the buttons on the player strapped to my arm.I don't like the magnets used to attach the headphone cord to our clothing, since I am afraid of having the magnets ruin my TV/monitor or something else.

SOUND QUALITY - MP3s encoded at 192 kbps sound great throught this player.Too bad it doesn't support OGG which would allow better sound at smaller sizes.

BATTERY LIFE - Very good.They say 10 hrs.

Overall, this player is not perfect in every sense but for the use/price I am very happy with it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Horrible experience - do not buy this
Simply stated - this product just isn't compatible with XP. Even if it installs correctly it will fail after a period of the player sitting idle or the player batteries running down.

Technical support is a joke, they have a "customer is always wrong attitude" if you can reach them.

This thing may, or may not, work for you but I don't recommend taking the risk. ... Read more


2. Panasonic SVAV30 MPEG4 eWear Digital Camcorder/Still Camera w/ 64 MB SD Card & Docking Station

Amazon.com Product Description

The stylish Panasonic e-wear SVAV30 (Silver) combines a digital video recorder, digital still camera, digital audio player (with new SD-Jukebox software), and a digital voice recorder into one ultra-compact package. This palm-sized camcorder features a user-friendly interface and improved video resolution over its predecessor, the SVAV10. The SVAV30 also offers a docking station for recording and viewing footage on a television.

The new user-friendly interface makes recording easy, without having to scroll through menus. The SVAV30 features enhanced picture quality with an MPEG4 frame rate (15 frames per second) for video and 640 x 480 resolution for JPEG still images. A swiveling 2-inch LCD screen and two record buttons allow you to shoot comfortably with the unit in either the horizontal or vertical position. A new 2x digital zoom helps bring subjects into closer view.

The SVAV30 includes a built-in flash for taking digital still pictures in low-light situations. A built-in USB interface makes it easy to transfer music from a PC to an SD Memory Card for playback, while the included SD Jukebox software provides a simple way to catalog and save numerous digital music files in a single database on a PC. The SVAV30 is compatible with the MP3 and AAC formats. A built-in speaker lets users listen to any recorded audio.

Improving on its counterpart, the SVAV20, the SVAV30 features a unique A/V docking station that connects to a TV for viewing video and still images, or to a VCR for recording favorite TV programs and viewing them on the go. The docking station also includes a built-in battery recharger to power up the player.

  • 64 MB Secure Digital memory card
  • Weighs just 3.25 ounces
  • 2-inch LCD screen
  • Software includes SD Jukebox 3.0 and SD MovieStage 2.0
  • Compatibility with Windows 98SE, Me, 2000, and XP
  • Packaged with AC adapter, USB and A/V cables, handstrap, carrying case, remote control with earphones, and rechargeable battery

The Digital Tapeless Format
Tapeless camcorders make use of the compression power of the MPEG-4 file format (often called the MP3 of video) to allow you to record directly to memory cards, dispensing with the need for tapes altogether. They may require slightly more computer savvy than other formats, but are more user-friendly than you might expect and allow for the most compact camcorder body sizes ever made. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Very Poor Warranty Support
Before you buy Panasonic, check out their customer service number at (800) 221-7262.My experience with Panasonic Customer Service is very poor starting with an average of 26 minute wait times (6 attempts).I bought a Panasonic SVA V30 that had a internal battery charger problem.After waiting for someone at the Panasonic call center to answer, I was referred to All Electronics Services in Bozeman, Montana for warranty repair.I sent the camera to them in April.In June I spoke with Josh there who said he was working on my repair after he had all the accessories. In July, Josh told me they sent the camera to Panasonic and he would check the status.In August, Josh told me All Electronics was no longer working on this camera, that there were many problems with it, that they had 20 bad returns and that Panasonic had returned my camera back to All Electronics.He indicated he was sending me the camera back without repair and told me I had to deal with Panasonic.
After several long waits, Panasonic told were checking the problem and that they needed their rep to see if the camera could be repaired.Bottom line is I still do not have the camera.Panasonic may make good cameras but their customer support is terrible.Their customer service reps were rude and indignant that I was bothering them with my problem.

5-0 out of 5 stars VERY GOOD
this is the coolest thing you get four great things in one, although i cant print out the pictures because my mom lost the product key

a retard could figure this out it's so easy,but if you are going to buy this buy an extra card for recording because they dont hold very much. well, you should still buy this because instead of buying those expensive video camera, or mp3 players, or digital cameras it's all in one and VERY COOL

3-0 out of 5 stars A great gizmo, a substandard camera
I really wish I had read some of the reviews before buying this camera.It is small, has tons of features, and is really fast, not to mention makes everybody around you, strangers or not, stop to look at it and ask questions.But the pictures it takes are just not a high enough quality to make it worth it.You could buy a cell phone that can play mp3's and take pictures as good as this camera, and thats a phone too.The zoom was terrible and lost all focus when used, and the mp3 player would be cool if there weren't so many restrictions on how to get music on there.All in all, I was really excited to receive, and really disappointed as soon as I tried to print my pictures, so I returned the product.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not bad at all! Recommended.
When reading these reviews prior to purchase, I got nervous that I would recieve a piece of garbage that didn't live up to the curiousity surrounding it.

I was wrong!

This is a great gadget for on the go, making home movies, anything. When taking a picture, if you are too close with the flash on, all you will see is a flash of white light. Just don't take it less than 1-2 feet away from the object.

I was very impressed with the video aspect. The sound was very impressive and I was able to watch the videos immediately after taking them, and the picture quality is impressive considering how small this is.

Overall, I'm really glad I bought this. The voice recorder is reliable, I haven't checked the Audio player, but I mostly bought it for three out of four purposes. It is absolutely worth it, especially to slip in your pocket and make videos/take pictures on the go.

TIP: The SV-AV30 comes with a 64MB Memory Card. If you are planning to use this full-time, or are taking this on a trip, buy an additional card. 64MB is really not a lot of room, especially if you will be using all of the options offered (Voice/Audio/Camera/Video). The memory cards are somewhat expensive, but if you invest in a high MB card, it will last you for a while.

1-0 out of 5 stars NOT Worth it
Sorry guys... I saw this gizmo and thought as many do.."wow.. a video camera and digital camera in one and in a small package" (I didn't really care about the mp3 player and voice recorder).

I was/am willing to sacrifice some quality because of the size but this thing is ridiculous. Unless you are in DIRECT sunlight taking a picture of something 2 feet in front of you then this thing is worse than anything I can imagine (and even then the pictures are terrible).

The video camera recording/reproduction is useless...I have never got a decent recording.

If you have to use the flash (which seems like all the time) then all you get is bright white pictures.

I can't express how disappointed I was with this product. A friend of mine just got a digital camera for 25% the price and the pictures are 10 times the quality and it is only slightly bigger than this.

The only positive things I could say is that it is a great conversation starter at bars..etc.. since it is a cool package and draws a lot of attention (but dont try actually show it off by using it because it is pathetic) and that the software isnt "terrible" (although has failed to work a couple of times on XP but pretty solid for the most part).

My opinion---a waste of money--novelty wears off after 24 hours and then you look at what you have which is picture quality 10 times worse than a picture booth and a video camera that you can't use. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars not bad..
I've had this MP3 player since probably year 2000 and it STILL works surprisingly. Four years and it still works! I had a few problems...when I upgraded my PC to Windows XP. The drivers didn't support it so I had to search around and finally found RealOne had the Rio500 support. Well it being year 2004...there's iPods and these MP3 players that hold 5000 songs while this holds maximum 20. Well back then it was cool.

4-0 out of 5 stars More Rio support for XP users
This is a durable little MP3 player.I have had mine for about 4 years and it's still going strong.I also had the issue of the software not working with XP.Rio audio products are now owned by Digital Networks, but there is little to no help at all on their website for the Rio 500.Anyway, that is my only complaint.There is a great website called Rioworld.org that has several different freeware programs available that will let your Rio 500 work with XP. There is also a couple of recovery files in case you get a gray checkerboard screen (problem that can occur if there is a power failure during upload of a song).

5-0 out of 5 stars Rio 500 and Windows XP
To the person who can't transfer music to their Rio 500 under Windows XP, check out Sveta Portable Audio from http://www.dbpoweramp.com/. I've been using it since I got a new PC with XP installed and it works great, much simpler interface compared to the supplied Rio software.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good player, terrible company
The player is great, small, light and easy to use. You must either use a Mac (works great with iTunes), the Riositude program (freeware, google for it)or win98. I use mine whenever Im outside:running, yardwork whatever. You'll need to replace the earbudsbut if you buy a used one do you really want to use someone else's earbuds? The serial number will rub off so write it down as another reviewer suggested.

Also, if you buy a used one, make sure you get the USB cable. It's proprietary and you can't get it anywhere. (Refer to rio support coments below.)

Customer support at rio (or sonic blue or whatever they call themselves this week) is a joke. I will not buy another product of any type from them ever.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent product Works with xp (need to download diff prog
This product is excellent!! i have one for 3 years andhave never been happier.When i upgraded to xp the softwear dis not work! so i did a bit of research. there is a program called music jukebox which you can download at www.musicex.com/mediajukebox/ you download this program and then you go to settings/plug in manager and then handheld. it takes you o a site where you find the rio 500 and then download the plug-in. after that it works great!! i have not had a problem with it since!! I hope this helps all the other people who have upgraded to windows xp and found themselves stuck

1-0 out of 5 stars Poor Customer Service
Device works great..however, there is no updated software that is XP compatable.Customer service told me that they were 'sorry, but the 2100 is no longer a supported product'. They suggested that I purchase a newer model that was XP compatable. Will never buy anything from Sonic Blue again.

5-0 out of 5 stars An Exellent Product, Worth Buying
I couldn't buy any Mp3 players because they were all USB, Music was a hobby of mine, a friend told me 'bout this product so I gave it a try, and believe me, it was my greatest experience ever,
also, if anyone of u who is reading this knows about other Parallel port mp3 players, then let me know

4-0 out of 5 stars Good except my screen went blank
I did some research in order to find a good mp3 player that was good and fit my budgit and the rave mp3 2100 looked good.With mostley good reviews i decided to buy it.When it came I was able to put songs from my computer on to the unit very easily.But after a week my screen started going blank and not showing anything so icalled up customer service which they were eaisly able to be reached and they had me send it in to get it replaced.They said it would take 2 weeks for it to return to me and they lived up to their claim it came wihin 2 weeks.Since then i have had no problems with the unit and except for the flaw in it i would have to say it is well worth your money.

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing
I read all the reviews and wonder why people seem to have so many problems when I've had none with mine at all. It's cheap and easy to use, and it gives you **skip-free** music for well over an hour (upgrade, it's worth it for only around $30). I got it for a grad present, took it out of the box, and without even reading the instructions had it working in 2 minutes. It's interface is intuitive and easy to use. Uploading mp3s was also quite easy, just drag and drop. 170k/sec transfers is pretty good, about as fast as I download mp3s from the interent, so I definately can't complain. For the cost, you get an amazing unit. And yes, I had a problem with the headphones too until I read the review. Snapping them in helps :) I totally recommend this, MP3s are the future of music.

1-0 out of 5 stars Waste of Time and Money
Because of the editoral reviews of this product, I thought that this MP3 plaayer would be easy to use.Not so, at least for me.As it turned out, no one in my family could get this thing to work at all.It got so bad that we gave the thing to a friend who got me into MP3's in the first place and who knows a ton about computers and electronic gadgets, and he couldn't get it to work either.Bottom line at least for me is that this thing is a waste of time and money. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Reliable . . .
The Nomad II is an MP3 player with voice recording capability.Internal memory capacity is 128MB, expandable up to 256MB as the unit accommodates smart media memory up to 128MB.

The thin, palm sized player is powered by a single AA battery.A fully charged 2000mAh NiMH battery provides power for around 6 hours.The display is readable, with a backlighting feature.The controls are reasonably convenient, and fairly sensitive.Located near the top of the unit are the volume controller and a switch to lock the controls.The unit produces an adequate volume level, with the headphone jack being located on the top of the unit.A set of low quality headphones is included, but you will experience better results when using better quality phones.

You can select random play, or repeat play a single track or all tracks.The DISP function button provides several preset equalization levels, with one customizable "user" setting available.The microphone is a tiny dot on the front of the unit, and the voice recorder does just an average job of recording conversations. The PlayCenter2 software is a little clunky for those accustomed to working with drag and drop, as the transfer speed is not especially swift.

Solid reliable performance and sturdy construction make this product an attractive buy if you are considering a product with this relatively low memory capacity.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good until it broke
The unit broke a year after I bought it.I wouldn't buy another player from Creative Labs because it is too fragile.I only used the unit at the gym a few times a week.The first thing that broke was the wired remote, which I found to be very useful.The menu on the unit is easy enough to figure out, but rather slow to navigate.It takes several steps just to check the time.I liked the behind the head ear phones, they don't pinch my ears, but I guess I'm one of the lucky ones.The ear phone sound quality is just average.I'd have to say the quality of the product as a whole is just average.

1-0 out of 5 stars keeps breaking!
I own a Nomad II 64 MP3 player and it has broken for a second time - the warranty was only 60 days, and shortly thereafter, it stopped working, so I had to send it back and have it repaired for [$$$] (on the phone you can only talk to customer service reps, not technicians, and none of them could ever tell me what happend or how to prevent it from happening again in the future).The repair came with another generous 60 day warranty.The repair lasted about a year, and now it is broken again (in a similar but different way) - and I have always been very careful with it and it has never been physically harmed.Now that it is broken a second time I don't see the need to put more money into it, only to have it break again.

2-0 out of 5 stars Does not work right
the player worked right for like 2 or 3 days then started to turn on and off by itself also would not turn on correctly.

4-0 out of 5 stars It is great but.
It is great, It is compact, It is discret, The equalizer is magnific, The voice recording has a good sensibility, In general its sound is good (not great, I would like more volumen but I am conform because it was not expensive), The better in its clase. It comes with the neck lance and the belt clip (It is pretty). You can check the technical specificatons and pay attention with the output power. It is very difficult to find a good micro small FM radio, This item has not a good reception. I did not have problem with the usb tranference. I did not have problems with the jostick. I bought this one only because I do not have more money righ now. I was thinking too in buy the iriver version but the 64MB is discontinued. I am thinking about to sell it and to buy other with more memory, and maybe you would do the same, in this case if you already have the money to buy a better do it. It eat somes bateries (maybe a good recomandation is to buy an mp3 player with AA Batery instead a AAA batery. NOTE: IMPORTANT IMPORTANT IMPORTANT IMPORTAN: LIKE I WAS WORRIED ABOUT, THE UNIT GOT DIED AFER SOME MONTHS, AT FIRST THE UNIT GOT SHUTTING DOWN WITHOUT A RAZON WITH NEW BATERIES, I HAD TO TURNED ON AGAIN, THEN THE PC STOP TO VIEW THE DEVICE AND AT THE END GOOD BYE GATEWAY.

9 hours to install this?I don't think so!It took me a while but not even close to 9 hours...maybe an hour at most!I even think you can get away with NOT installed RealOne Player!Just make sure you download the firmware version on Sonic Blue's web site according to your part number.You should be up and running in no time!

Now for the bad and good points:

Bad:

- The software that comes with this are so obsolete you might as well throw it out.
- Can't tell which song is playing from the file
- Sketchy "Getting Started Guide"
- Slow transfer rates by default

Good:

- This IS somewhat upgradeable up to 128 megabytes
- You can fit up about 18 or so mp3 songs in 112k
- Great if you want something that has hit songs you don't care about which one that plays.
- Has random and repeat modes not common on more sophisicated player
- Display does show the bitrate at least
- Has a belt clip so you can jog with it on your hip.

If you are waiting at the airport, in the backseat of your car on a long trip, or jogging, this is a really good mp3 player to consider.

2-0 out of 5 stars The PMP 300 is back!
Wow, I have this mp3 player...the problem is:I bought it 1999, and it was then called the Rio PMP 300.

This version, the Rio One, is basically an upgrade in memory of a five year old player.Same media, same case, different colors.I have a lot of problems with mine, but mostly flakey, annoying problems.It works...sometimes.

So, be forewarned:this is a first-generation mp3 player.It is the digital audio equivalent of the dodo.Nice and meaty, but don't expect it to last.

1-0 out of 5 stars Run, don't walk away from this product
Mine just stopped working after about 1 month. I returned it, and got another one that stopped working after about 3 months. The batteries lasted almost as long as the player. I now have a Nomad Muvo (64mb), which I've had for about 2 years, and love. I highly recommend the Muvo for someone looking for a small, reliable, mp3 player. It's actually less expensive than this Rio junk.

1-0 out of 5 stars dont be stupid, dont buy this
bad would be a good word for this product. I am writing this in the first day that I have this product. It sucks really bad. It sais that it costs $100 regularly.Ha ha ha, I wouldn't pay 50 cents for it, let alone $30.

1-0 out of 5 stars this thing SUCKS
This mp3 player is so un believably BAD. It takes like 9 hours to finally set up. I bought mine about 2 months ago. guess what, it broke. the thing is so bad. no wonder it was so cheap. the customer service is also horrible. the thing just stopped turning on. i put a new battery in too. when i got it, i opened the battery slot and one of the things that closes it broke off so i had my battery taped in the whole time. If your looking for an mp3 player, do NOT buy this peice of @$#!* !!!!! i would never buy ANYTHING of this brand ever again. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Like everyone else... stopped working soon after purchase
If anyone has the piece between the main device and the headphone jack that they can send me that would be great.I could revive the player otherwise it's dead...

3-0 out of 5 stars Mine just died yesterday, here's the story
I bought my PSAPlay 120 when it first came out because it was the only one that looked cool in the gym and had a belt clip and arm strap.

Now my PSAPLAY 120 is about a year and a half old and it's stopped working.At first, only songs I had installed on the MMC card wouldn't play.I put it on my computer and it could still see the songs were there but the player just skipped right over them.Then the thing would work about once out of every 15 times you pushed "play."And when it would play, it might play 10 seconds of the first song and stop.I finally pulled out the 128MMC card and trashed the unit.

To be fair, this seems to be indicative of many MP3 players, not just the PSAPLAY 120.

FYI - Though this unit has an expandable MMC port, the newer NIKE 128Mbs does not.

Here's the good and bad on the PSAPLAY 120
First the bad:
- The belt clip broke in the first week.
- I also dropped it in the first week - not hard and on the gym's carpet - and the case cracked.
- The armband attaches to the player via a tiny little screw. They give you two.Now I know why.One of them broke in the first 4 months.
- There is no "random play."
- The Nike audio software they give you isn't very useful.It has about 1/2 the functionality of more popular titles like Media Player.Unfortunately, using Media Player was alway a hit or miss thing.Sometimes Media Player could find the PSAPLAY and sometimes it couldn't even though I kept up with all firmware and software upgrades.
- The armband is bigger than most, though still too small for serious muscle builders
- Songs that load onto the expandable MMC slot load about 1/2 as fast as the internal memory (this is not a problem with my new RCA MP3).

The good:
- Battery life is excellent if you don't use the remote.
- The buttons are raised and easy to find for hands-free operation during running.
- Several preset equalizer settings that work well.
- Looks good.

Wow! When you write down the good and bad, it's a wonder I ever kept the thing as long as I did. For the money, there are better units out there I believe.

So there it is.It was pretty good while it lasted, but now it's gone...

1-0 out of 5 stars A GREAT IDEA : NEED IMPROVING
A great idea in developing what most serious gym rats long for: wirefree gadetry on the move and mp3 technology at our finger tips: plus being the first one in my gym with this new gadetry...major bonus point.

need improving: headsets cannot withstand sweat, which happens during a hard workout...buring out one side or fading sound.
Another problem encountered was a reduction of my allowed 64mb memory to 60.5mb...even after deleting old file...
PLEASE REFRAIN FROM PURCHASING UNTIL IMPROVEMENTS HAVE BEEN MADE.....

3-0 out of 5 stars Good, but with several major flaws
I've owned this player for about 3 years and the hardest thing I've had to deal with is the changing times and technology.When I switched to Windows XP, the software that came with the player was no longer compatible.Luckily, there is a driver for Windows Media Player 9 that recognizes the player and makes the music transfer process even faster and simpler than with the included software.

Its 64mb internal memory isn't much by today's standards but it's plenty if you're close to your computer and can change the songs when you get sick of them.There's a firmware update (a download from the internet that updates the device while it's connected to your computer) that supposedly lets you use larger multimedia cards to expand the memory (I haven't tried yet).The latest firmware is supposed to support the use of 128mb cards (and the successful use of a 256mb card has also been reported).The manual, strangely, mentions nothing about how to use multimedia cards with the player, although one diagram clearly points to the expansion slot.(??)Beware, though of the new secure digital (SD) cards because I've read that they aren't compatible with this player.

The remote was cool but when it's attached to the player, it drains the battery *even when the player is turned off*, so I quit using it.It doesn't scroll the song title anymore since I switched to WMP9.However, unless you have the remote connecting the headphones to the player, you'll find that the headphone cord is very short.I just use a different set of headphones.The headphones included are hard plastic and hurt my ears after just an hour or so of wearing.So really I don't use any of the contents in the original box except the player itself!

The equilizer presets are nice (though you have to have the remote plugged in to know which one you're using) and it has long battery life when only the headphones (not the remote) are attached.The armband is cool too for sports and walking around--better than the included clip, which tends to slide off.

So I can't exactly recommend this player but I've been able to make it work for me and I'll probably get a few more good years out of it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Xmas gift ever!!!
I bought this MP3 player for my husband as a Xmas gift 2 years ago. He claims this was the best Xmas gift he had ever recieved. My husband is an avid jogger and loves being able to download songs of his choice and listening to them while exercising. I was surprised to read the negative reviews and learn that so many users found the product to break easily. I can assure you that this MP3 players takes a beating. We are currently stationed in the Middle East where the average temperature is 114 degrees and my crazy husband still joggs in that weather. The device never gave him any problem whatsoever and he takes it with him on his many travels around the world. I highly recommend it and was going to purchase one for my brother-in-law when I started reading the negative reviews and decided to write my own. ... Read more

the product is great... especially with the battery attachment which lasts pretty long..

but i do not have the driver for win98 anymore cuz i reformatted my comp.

can someone PLEASE e-mail me the driver to spy5680@yahoo.com

4-0 out of 5 stars Only 2 stars??
I bought this player 2 years ago ...in Japan and thought it was a bargin then. I still haven't changed my mind. With SD cards (Sun Disc) making 512MB and soon 1GB memory cards I can listen to my player for hours and hours. My only wish is that it was rechargabe like a cell phone as the hook that holds the battery door closed snapped off. Also, I can only get 5 hours of play time with 2 AAA batteries. Other than that, one of the best buys I ever made!!
At (this price) it would be stupid not to consider this player.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good device if you know what to expect
I got this one cheap on auction. Got it just cos it looks great. It sounds good too. Dont expect great sound quality like some other players. This one is just built slim for convenience with a decent sound quality. Great to carry around. Found drivers(audio manager v2.2) for Win2k and XP in the asian market. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars No drivers for XP; indicative of Toshiba's customer service
I bought this little MP3 player for its size; it is little longer and wider than a credit card and as thick as a pen. It was fine until I bought a new PC with Windows XP. Now my MP3 palyer is worhtless. Toshiba does not provide new software for XP! If this is any indication, Toshiba doesn't care at all about customers. Avoid them!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great MP3 player!
This little gadget is great. It is small and light, it fits in any pocket, and it sounds great. The display is really clear as well. Everybody is very impressed with sound quality, design, and size. These are definetly the pluses of this gadget. The 64 internal memory holds a little more than 1 hour of music if you load mp3 files into the player (this also depends on the encoding quality and the original quality of the mp3 file), and about 2 hours if you copy music directly from a music CD.

The software provided by Toshiba is not the greatest on earth but it works fine. I have not had any trouble with it. However, I do use windows 98 second edition, and I have heard that the software does not work well with windows Me and that it does not support the new XP.

All we need now is for the price of SD cards to go down and for Toshiba to release new drivers for XP, then it will be perfect! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Awsome
An awsome device, handy portable and easy to use (if you are capable of installing for windows xp, and if you cant you are a moron any way) But anyhow do not listen to people saying it is not an mp3 player, all you need to do is go into openMg and turn your mp3's into atrac, it takes meer secconds.(DO NOT LISTEN TO THOSE TECHNOPHOBES WHO SAY IT'S HARD TO USE!!!!!!!!)

1-0 out of 5 stars this is *not* an MP3 player
almost too shocked for words - the advertising and packaging clearly mentions MP3. I was very dissapointed to learn that *IT DOES NOT PLAY MP3 FILES*. The player only plays files of the ATRAC format.

If you want to use this, be prepared to use the proprietry software and have to re-convert your entire collection.

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice but needs some work
Awsome little bugger, but the coler is not my cup of tea. I love the ability to switch memory cards, it is a must have extent. This is a great way to listen to music, I love everything but the charger thing on the bottom. I broke it in one day! I am now searching the web for a new one. But still you get what you pay for.

2-0 out of 5 stars Sony & MP3 & XP
Great little walkman, however, its not a true MP3 player.

It uses its own format similar to MP3, also you can forget downloading MP3's of the net. Idealy if you have the original CD then no problems, otherwise not so good.

Also if you want it to run woth XP OS then you might have to send it back to sony for a firmware upgrade, dependant on the age.

Happy MP3ing...........

3-0 out of 5 stars Sony NW-MS7 ups and downs
After getting my player, it took me about 3 hours to get the software running between my home pc with win xp and my laptop with win2k,the software is necessary to put mp3's onto the memory stick.

here is the dissapointed, this is not an mp3 player, mp3's are converted into another format due to "copyright" protection
using the same excuse sony forces you to buy the sony memorygatre memory stick, so you can forget about using generic or even regular sony brand memorysticks, you have to pay more for the magicgate

after installing the software and utilizing real player plus to transfer files, it was smooth sailing, encoding of mp3's is bit slow but its more due to my slow pc.

Actual preformance and ease of use is classic sony, its small compact user friendly in operation, quality of the music is great, the display is little unsharp in sunlight but its back lit and it helps.

over all you will be satisfied if you get over initial installing of Sony open MG software and learn to go around it. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Didn't last long....
I got one of the Mp3 players, and within my first day of using it, it was already screwed up.Also, Samsung is taking forever to reply to my complaint, and I probably don't have a warrenty because I won it at a football game!

2-0 out of 5 stars Good function, but fragile
Overall, I was pretty happy with my Yepp until, three months in, I dropped it from a few feet high (about waist high). Afterwards, no headphones could get sound out of it. Otherwise, until then, I was happy with the function of my Yepp.

2-0 out of 5 stars Battery Hog
I like everything about this player except everytime I pick it up it needs a new battery.I expected that after listening to the radio/music for 2 hours a day I would replace the battery every week.But, instead of 15 hours of play it should say 15 hours to drain the battery, play or not!

At first I thought it was the carrying case pushing buttons so I removed the case and left it sitting in my desk drawer overnight.It didn't make any difference, every other day I am replacing batteries no matter how much I listen to the music.

If they could fix this problem this would be an awesome player.

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply Awesome!
This MP3 player is outstanding. I am listening to my favorites songs at the moment and can't believe the quality of the sound not to mention how many songs I could fit in. If you're looking for a great product, this is your choice. If you love running or exercising withmusic, you'll love the Samsung Yeep 90-S!

5-0 out of 5 stars This little thing works GREAT for me!!!
I've been using the Nomad 2 MG for over a year, now. When I first tried to install the software, I had some problems with the docking cradle not seeing the player. I was suspicious that it had problems with my computer hardware (motherboard, etc.). When I tried the installation on another computer, everything worked great! Shortly afterwards, I replaced that original system with a faster one and the software works fine, now, as a matter of fact, the files just FLY to the player!

I take that MP3 player with me on rough mountain bike rides, snowboarding, running, commutes to work, and (sometimes) while I'm at work. I've dropped it numerous times, but still I have had NOT ONE SINGLE PROBLEM with it, yet. My cradle has not broken- maybe I'm just lucky. For those who have none functioning cradles, there are updated drivers online for free- that could solve some of your problems. Admittedly, I have deleted a song or two, because of poor button placement, but if you're capable of learning, you're not going to do that more than a few times, at best.

For the price and the performance, this unit ROCKS! With its capabilities to expand to the 128MB card, that's a lot of songs! Get this MP3 player! It's totally worth it!

4-0 out of 5 stars Still working after 2 years
Felt I had to add this after reading all these reviews.I got my II MG over 2 years ago and it still works fine.Only problem is the display sometimes flickers on and off, but if you tap it it comes back.I use this for the gym, travel and in my car.I've dropped it numerous times and gotten it wet and it still works fine.I have deleted songs accidently as others seem prone to as well, and agree button placement was poor.Overall this player has been great, and I wouldn't hesitate to buy another Creative product.

1-0 out of 5 stars The other reviewers aren't lying.It stinks.
I owned this player for about 5 months before its cradle stopped functioning.There are two main faults with it that lead me to advise against this MP3 player.

The first is its poor design.All of the function buttons are located along its sides.In order to hold the thing in any natural and comfortable way, your fingers have no other place to go except over the ultra-sensitive function buttons.The slightest change in pressure will activate any button you are touching.You'll find yourself accidently pausing, stopping or (worst of all) DELETING a song as it is playing very often unless you adopt the incredibly annoying practice of locking the buttons whenever you aren't using them.But unlike some other players, this also locks the volume button- which means you'll spend lots of time unlocking-changing volume-locking-unlocking-skipping a song-locking.Ugh.

And why any designer would put a one-touch delete button right near your general function buttons is beyond me.Make sure you memorize the layout of the buttons, because it absolutely stinks to delete a song when you just wanted to pause it and there is no second chances once you hit the extremely innocuous and sensitive delete button.

The second drawback of this player is how often it seems to break inexplicably.My player is fine, but if I want to use it anymore I'll have to get a new cradle.My cradle just decided to stop functioning one day.It wasn't jostled or banged around, it wasn't dusty or submerged in soda- nothing.I'd chock it up to bad luck if I hadn't gone on the web the next day and found dozens of unsolved breakages involving this player and its cradle.

This unit is slick looking and tiny, but not worth the trouble.Look elsewhere for your MP3 player needs.You can do much better.

1-0 out of 5 stars Get To Know Nomad Warranty Service
I formerly owned a Nomad II, which broke after about a year.I then purchased a Nomad II MG, which I had to return because the charging cradle didn't function.I purchased another one, and that one stopped working after about thirty days.I would steer clear of this frail product.

(P.S. Why would anyone with an IQ higher than a chimp buy three of these things?I couldn't find another one with expandable memory and an FM tuner).

1-0 out of 5 stars Read the reviews: This thing [...stinks]
Even if it didn't have chronic defects, the Nomad II MG is poorly designed. It comes with a protective leather carrying case that (1) can't be clipped or attached to anything and (2) doesn't provide an easy way to access any of the buttons on the unit. I ended up taking scissors to my leather case to make it slightly usable.

The buttons are located on the sides of the unit, where most people usually grab the unit. This results in frequent accidental button presses.

A couple of months after I got mine, I had the battery-clip problem that others have described. It was easily fixed with aluminum foil, but honestly, battery clips have been manucatured for decades without much problem; why is it such a recurring problem here?

Finally, after a little over a year of use, my docking station isn't acknowledging that the unit is docked. Therefore I can neither recharge the unit nor change the songs. The player is now useless to me.

From reading the other reviews, it's obvious the problems I've had with mine aren't an isolated case. So if you want a well-designed, well-manufactured, reliable mp3 player, DON'T buy the Creative Nomad II MG. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars not bad..
I've had this MP3 player since probably year 2000 and it STILL works surprisingly. Four years and it still works! I had a few problems...when I upgraded my PC to Windows XP. The drivers didn't support it so I had to search around and finally found RealOne had the Rio500 support. Well it being year 2004...there's iPods and these MP3 players that hold 5000 songs while this holds maximum 20. Well back then it was cool.

4-0 out of 5 stars More Rio support for XP users
This is a durable little MP3 player.I have had mine for about 4 years and it's still going strong.I also had the issue of the software not working with XP.Rio audio products are now owned by Digital Networks, but there is little to no help at all on their website for the Rio 500.Anyway, that is my only complaint.There is a great website called Rioworld.org that has several different freeware programs available that will let your Rio 500 work with XP. There is also a couple of recovery files in case you get a gray checkerboard screen (problem that can occur if there is a power failure during upload of a song).

5-0 out of 5 stars Rio 500 and Windows XP
To the person who can't transfer music to their Rio 500 under Windows XP, check out Sveta Portable Audio from http://www.dbpoweramp.com/. I've been using it since I got a new PC with XP installed and it works great, much simpler interface compared to the supplied Rio software.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good player, terrible company
The player is great, small, light and easy to use. You must either use a Mac (works great with iTunes), the Riositude program (freeware, google for it)or win98. I use mine whenever Im outside:running, yardwork whatever. You'll need to replace the earbudsbut if you buy a used one do you really want to use someone else's earbuds? The serial number will rub off so write it down as another reviewer suggested.

Also, if you buy a used one, make sure you get the USB cable. It's proprietary and you can't get it anywhere. (Refer to rio support coments below.)

Customer support at rio (or sonic blue or whatever they call themselves this week) is a joke. I will not buy another product of any type from them ever.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent product Works with xp (need to download diff prog
This product is excellent!! i have one for 3 years andhave never been happier.When i upgraded to xp the softwear dis not work! so i did a bit of research. there is a program called music jukebox which you can download at www.musicex.com/mediajukebox/ you download this program and then you go to settings/plug in manager and then handheld. it takes you o a site where you find the rio 500 and then download the plug-in. after that it works great!! i have not had a problem with it since!! I hope this helps all the other people who have upgraded to windows xp and found themselves stuck

2-0 out of 5 stars Disapointment
I got my little gadget three days ago.I had no problem at first.However I did question their manual, which was absolutely no help when trying to figure i2GO out.Every page referred to their website for direction.The first thing I noticed about the website...it wasn't there.Yesterday while I was messing with some speaker cords to plug in for better sound (the speaker is pathetic) my i2GO fell about two feet onto the floor.Since then it has been shutting itself off.I replaced the batteries, and it has been touch and go since.
I would not recommend this to anyone because of the bad tech support, and the durability is exaggerated.

1-0 out of 5 stars eGo is a NoGo
I bought one of these cute little players because of the recommendations off another MP3 site.When it arrived, the first thing I found out was that it wasn't that little or that cute.it looked more like a pager from 1982.After 6 attempt at installing the software on my desktop computer I gave up and managed to install it on the laptop instead.That didn't help much in downloading songs to the player, it hung on the second song download every time.I had to buy an adapter for the CF card so that I could download songs directly to the card.Once I did get a few songs on the player its sound was OK, but no better than he Genoa MP3 CD I bought laster year.The last straw happened a few days later.I had attached the eGo to my belt while out running errands.I tuned the player off while I picking up a few items in a drugstore.On leaving the store I went to start the eGo but it wouldn't play.Due to a moronic design flaw, the Ego's card slot is open and on the bottom of the player so when it was attached to the belt clip the CF card had fallen out and was lost.I gave the player one last shot and tried 2 of the 128mb cards I use for my digital camera but neither would play in the eGo.Apparently, the devise only support a very limited number of cards on the market.The only help I got from the company in response to several email about the software problems was, "Did you read our web site?"

My advise to you is find a player with a little more thought behind it.

1-0 out of 5 stars The company i2Go is out of business
Becarefull, the company that makes the eGo is out of business.No more support, no more web site, no nothing.Good luck on this one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Works for me
Don't know what the others are complaining about, My eGo worked perfectly. When I realized that my hardware was outdated (even though the unit worked well) the I2go people offered to send me a new updated one free...they even paid the shipping. Unit worked as it should from the beginning, customer support has been excellent for me...all Emails answered quickly, all questions answered...it is a full featured unit and so some questions do arise. Great features are..built in speaker, sturdy (I've dropped it dozens of times), great sound level, great car set up, text to voice conversion for Emails, text files, etc. I could go on and onbut in short, its a great player.

1-0 out of 5 stars Connie Kinney
Actually I LOVE the e-go,It's the company support that is lacking.I read the negative reviews and can totally understand. My ego came under supplied but I did the math and figured if I bought a 2nd the cost of the flash alone would be equal. In doing so I have recieved all that I should have. I did notice one of the very favorable reviews here has the same name of person who responded to my negitive feed back before I think people should know they're review from MICHEAL PITCHER was from the VICE PRESIDENT of the i2GO company he gave me numerouse phone nos. however will not respond via e-mail...and I will not call as the item is only available on line so should the comunication line be. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A very good thing to own
I bought my rio500 about 2 years ago and it has done nothing but make me happy. With the 64MB it has already, thats just the right amount of music for a nice car trip, but if you are like me and need a lot of music, then you can buy an inexpensive smart media expansion card.I had many cards and could have about 5 hours of music all in one pocket...I enjoy how the screen says the title of the song, the amount of time that has passed, and the battery life.I didnt seem to have a problem with the included software, except that its just a demo.But recently i guess i got a virus of some sort, so if i want to format my media card, it would lock up my computer, and i would have to turn off my computer at the tower, which is not good.There are other kinds of software for it that you can download for free online, so please dont let the bad software come in your way from purchasing it.Please read the other reviews because i read them and some have some good points.As for the ones that say that the froze and stopped working, well, thats only if you abuse it too much.My friend had an identical player, and he dropped it into pools and lakes, dropped it down stairs, and other horrible things, so it froze finally.... so, if you take good care of your player, it will serve you well.I hope i helped!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great MP3 player
I purchased this from Audible for 99 bucks about 13 months ago. As an audio book device this is a wonderful player. Upgrade with another 64 MB Smart Media card and you'll get about 9 hours of very good quality spoken word. As a music player it is good but not great. Not enough memory for more than an hour or two of good quality music. The 500 has a quality feel to it that other players do not. It has the look and feel of a first generation device that was over built and probably wasn't intended to make a large profit. Very small, slips into a pocket and is rugged enough to stand up to a fair amount of abuse. Great battery life compared to a minidisc player I used to use - at least 12 honest hours of playback on a single AA battery. Subsequent Rio mp3 players are bigger and aren't as elegant as the 500. Forget the included software. Download RIOsitude from hotfiles.com. A free program that is intuitive to use, fast and reliable. As good as this player is the Apple iPod has established a new benchmark for portable players. The Apple uses a 5 GB microdrive which hasn't proven itself yet in terms of reliability but is certainly a step in the right direction. Bottom line is that the 500 is a supremely good audio book device, a great spoken word device, a good music player but too little memory for more than a couple hours of high quality audio.

4-0 out of 5 stars Some very major flaws, but otherwise a fun toy
First, the good:lightweight and TINY, take it to the gym, or on a plane, and it won't be a nuisance.If you download a firmware upgrade from rioport.com a lot of the bugs are fixed and the interface is improved. Now the BAD:headphones included are crap -ditch them and get new ones right away.Holds about 15 songs on its internal memory - get firmware upgrade to allow you to plug in a 64MB smartmedia card.Everywhere you look it says you can only plug in another 32 but don't listen to that. All in all, I love this thing, its compact size makes it great.

1-0 out of 5 stars Bad product
I bought this last year and it was working fine for about 6 month. Then it suddenly froze and didn't react to anything. I spend several days trying to fix it. I downloaded a program from the website that is supposed to fix that problem. It turned out to be useless. Of course they do not have a tech support you can call. So after a lot of e-mails I was allowed to return the product and got it back after 3 weeks. It was fine for about 2 month and then the same thing happened. In summary this is a bad product manufactured by a terrible company with bad tech support. Don't make the mistake to buy it.

1-0 out of 5 stars What a horrible piece of garbage.
I wouldn't give this to someone unless I absolutely hated them. Even then, I would think of something worse to give them that was free, like herpes or setting their house on fire. Stear clear of this "MP3" player. Don't be a tightwad, get an Iriver or Ipod.

1-0 out of 5 stars piece of junk
The yo fun is a piece of junk.
The UI for the downloading software is terrible.
It eats batteries.

1-0 out of 5 stars Couldn't install Driver, No Support
Wanted to use it to record voice and then transfer it to my computer.Recording seemed to work OK, but couldn't get the drivers to install on Windows 2000 nor Windows XP.The manual is the worst translated Chinese to English I've seen in quite a while, making it incomprehensible.

The Kaser Corp web site is awful and doesn't seem to provide any updated drivers.Tried to contact them, but never heard back.

1-0 out of 5 stars piece of junk with no support
Purchased the player and it worked fine for two months of low use.Then it stopped playing music.Can move files back and forth just fine.FAQ's at their site are pitiful so I wrote tech support- no answer in a month.I just wrote again.If you want to roll dice and hope it works then go ahead but if it doesn't you are up the creek with no paddle and no place to turn for help.

1-0 out of 5 stars Good price/ Bad player
I purchased this unit and i was not impressed.I took it home and
it worked for about one month,then one day it stoped working.Connected to the USB PORT in the back of the computer,i noticed that it was not downloading right,so i found that the internal chip had been fried,and when i tryed to exchange it,it took forever to get good sevice for the technical support team.I also found that the E.Q. had no good sound, very little bass and the treble was to high. So anyone looking for their frist time digital
portable mP3 player,My advice do not purchase this one, and don't let the price fool you. You get what you pay for.Look around for a Rio,or one like it for the same price,you will be happy you did!!! ... Read more
