This little music player is so much easier to work than my iPod. It let's me simply add any mp3 I want to and I can organize them by folder in the player to listen to or just play them all mixed. This player can also record, show video, and has a slot for a micro SD card to add space if 8 gigs isn't enough for you. I have about 6 gigs worth so I was able to add every song I love onto it and still have room for more. It's easy to use and has a sleek look, light on the wallet and light in the pocket. Live this player!
