4-0 out of 5 stars Great player!!
I recieved the player yesterday after getting it as a gift from someone who bought it during the promo. I have to say, this is a fantastic player! The volume is good and loud and crisp without distortion when it needs to be, and the softs are still crystal! The I-Jam technology even makes mp3's encoded at 64 Kbps sound much better than they do in Winamp. What a great deal! 30 bux for this little sucker! The promo made it possible to spend that extra money on a 64 meg MMCard :)

The only disadvantages (if you have to purchase it full price, this would probably matter): Two 16 meg MMCards, not a 32 meg card. The display only uses "TR-01, TR-02, etc..." Titles from the ID3 tag would be nice, but it's not neccessary. Also, there's no way to put them in the order you want besides copying the songs in that order.

Other than those little setbacks, this is a GREAT player.

2-0 out of 5 stars For $30 it's OK
Just a few points. You get 2 16 meg cards but only one slot so you have to keep swapping cards. It's not like the Diamond Rio that can store 2 cards at once. FM feature is a plus. The instructions are very skimpy and poor. The software will crash Explorer if you pull the card out while Explorer is open. For about $30 net of rebate, it's a good buy but not a great one. You get what you pay for.

1-0 out of 5 stars Dont buy an mp3 player!
If you are rich as hell, go ahead and buy it. But for the price your paying for this, you could get a great Mini Disk player, and even plenty of discs for over 2,000 minutes of recording time. Dont believe me? Goto the Mini Disc section and do the math! Even better, you can record mp3's onto the MiniDisk players, you can also record your voice, your playstation/N64/Dreamcast, VCR, TV, Radio, Tape, everything! I almost bought an mp3 player, and im glad i didn't. MP3's are too expensive compared to Mini-Disks, and if you look at the Mini Disk trend right now, its exactly like the CD trend 10 years ago. They are already making Mini Disk drives fro computers to store info. Just check out the Mini Disks before you buy this, trust me, you'll thank me. If you have any questions, email me, Ill answer them asap!

3-0 out of 5 stars Memory is a problem...
Everything about this MP3 Player is awesome except the memory. It's so small you can stick it in your pocket! The sound quality is excellent - however mp3 quality must be 128kpbs or below. I tried mp3s recorded at 160kpbs and 192kpbs and it sounded terrible - stick to the 128kpbs norm. The controls and display are fine. The multimedia card reader is great! This saves you the time of connecting and disconnecting your player to the computer. The mm reader is always hooked up and all you do is insert the card and copy files over. Then take the card and put it in the mp3 player and your ready to run. These are the features that make this player better than all the rest. Now to the problem... It comes with two-16mb memory cards (only 15mb available btw) and you can only use ONE card at a time. Which means 3-4 songs! Not only that, but it's a trick to find the right combination of songs that will be under 15mb in total size. I bought my I-JAM to use while working out and 3-4 songs just isn't enough. You can bring the additional card with you and change it - but that's a pain. The nice alternative is the FM tuner. Once my 3-4 songs are over, I just turn on the radio (or listen to mp3's again!). They do sell a 32mb card I believe, but it probably costs as much as the player did.

4-0 out of 5 stars The I-Jam is little, yellow, different, better
I have compared this product to another portable MP3 brand. This one has excellent sound quality, is smaller, and sturdier. You don't realize how small it is until you actually hold it. It would fit easily into a shirt pocket. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars: I wish it came with a single 32MB memory card, instead of two 16MB cards. Barring that, the player is easy to use and fun. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Coleman FRS Walkie Talkies
Lots of cheapo FRS units are out there on the market but these Coleman units are some of the best.
They have great audio quality crisp and loud and lots of audio power.
They are small and fit in a shirt pocket but have a quality feel.
They have excellent range, I've obtained over 20 miles mountian top to mountain top with these.
They are tough, I'm not sure of the material the cases are made of but its virtually indestrucable.
Thay have a scan feature to let you know which channel someone was talking on.
In, short these are great FRS units, I'd buy more of these.

Amazon.com Product Description

The IJ-828 portable MP3 and CD system is I-Jam's first product that willplay both MP3-encoded CD-Rs and regular-format audio CDs (though it won't playCD-RW discs). Since MP3 discs can hold up to 150 songs on a single disc, owningthe IJ-828 means you can bring hours of music with you on just a few CDswherever you go. Just pop the disc in, and the IJ-828 will automatically detectthe format. Since it is a portable unit, the IJ-828 features 50-secondelectronic antiskip protection and a minijack headphone output (headphones notincluded). A line-out jack will let you connect it to a larger system like yourstereo receiver.

Five preset equalization modes let you tweak your sound preference (normal,bass, high bass, superwoofer, and high treble). Along with the built-in DynamicBass Boost System (DBBS), these presets will give you some listeningflexibility. For convenience, I-Jam has included such features as a built-inrecharge circuit for rechargeable batteries, auto level control to smooth outthe volume difference between songs, and a voice recording function that recordsup to eight minutes in the IJ-828's 8 MB RAM.

The I-Jam IJ-828 uses a 4.5-volt DC power supply, two AA batteries, or two1.2-volt ni-cad batteries. CD burning software is not included.

I-Jam offers a one-year warranty on parts and labor. ... Read more

Features

  • Portable CD player that plays CDs and MP3-encoded CD-R discs
  • 5 equalization presets, including bass boost and superwoofer
  • Up to 8 minutes of voice recording
  • 50-second electronic shock protection
  • Built-in recharge circuit for rechargeable batteries

3-0 out of 5 stars This was OK before Rio Volt came out
I bought my IJ-828 almost a year ago and swapped it two weeks ago for Rio Volt. The I-Jam product served me well, but it is pretty much outdated by today's standards.

It is built on the dreaded Genica platform (although I must admit the only quality problem with my player was that it did not charge NiCds, althought the instuction said it would). Genica means:

- playback quality which is ok, but inferior to Rio Volt

- it can't play MP3 files with the bitrate above 192 kbps

- it doesn't support ID tags and has only a 1-line numerical display

- it doesn't have a remote control

- cumbersome directory navigation and no RESUME function

- SHORT battery life for MP3 playback (4 hours)

- cheap looks and chroming on buttons which is wiped off in two months

The positives of owning it are:

- PRICE (this thing is cheap, but it does what it is supposed to do)

- decent MP3 antishock (it spins the disk continuously,and 40 sec buffer is more than enough) -- pls note that the player either doesn't have or has very short CD antishock

- stylish headphones (I wouldn't say the quality is superb, but the looks are cool)

- 8-min voice recording (theoretically it is a plus, but for me a useless feature - never used it)

Overall rec: if you can afford getting yourself a Rio Volt, wait before Amazon has it back in stock. Do not get stuck with a previous-generation product, which IJ-828 is.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great little mp3 player minus a few quibbles
Price and size are great. It's tiny, light and accepts standard CF cards to increase the memory size (no one in their right mind would use the 8mb card it comes with). Who cares about an LCD display or equalizer functions?

I do have a couple of problems with it:

1) Despite taking "industry-standard" CF cards, there are some cards that are incompatible with the IJ-50. I bought a Simple 96MB card only to find it was not compatible. There is a compatiblity matrix on www.ijamworld.com. Make sure your card is supported before buying. I have successfully used a Kingston 48MB out of the box with the IJ-50.

2) No belt clip or arm band. This radio is useless for exercise except for walking. A belt clip would next to nothing to the price but make this player so much more useful. As is, it is very easy to drop while running (as I have done several times).

2-0 out of 5 stars For Free it rocks for ($) maybe 3 stars anything above 2
Some confusion on these reviews. The IJ50- has no radio tuner. It's a bare bones plasticky and as your sole player not a load of fun. Though if you already have CF memory lying around, need a usb card reader you basically get the player for ($), assuming a ($) or less price tag. Headphones are as expected useless and uncomfortable to boot.

I was lucky enough to win one of these, only reason I have it, and the sound quality,battery life are excellent. Build quality yuck. Software accompanying it not amazingly useful and I-jam's site, a dogs breakfast. Are they selling MP3 players or DVD's this week :-) you decide. This player is hideously outgunned for the price, as such it would not be possible to recommend it for anything other than a clearance price, and then only if you need a CF reader.

5-0 out of 5 stars The cheapest!! And the most powerful! :D
This product is so economic & small! The price is really fair. You can have it for less than [amount] in some stores (without Compact Flash Card & Reader but with earphones).
This MP3 Player has 90mW power output: where mostly all MP3 players has 60mW... It's really useful in a noisy environement (subway, a lot of people talking, etc...).
Some help for those whom owns the JS-50U (the I-JAM CompactFlash Card Reader), you need to update the drivers from Microtech (ZIO Reader is the same) or Delkin (eFilm Reader-2). I guess the guy before who reviewed this product didn't have the correct version of the drivers. Be sure to initialize the CompactFlash cards in FAT (not FAT32 or NTFS).

1-0 out of 5 stars Piece of Garbage
This thing is a piece of garbage. It is a piece of plastic that I cannot tell if it works or not because there is no display -- only some red light. You are better off spending your a bit more money on a real MP3 player.

1-0 out of 5 stars Totally Useless
Bought the I-Jam IJ-50 when it was on sale, and right after receiving a gift certificate. So, I thought, didn't have an MP3 player, had two 128 Meg CF cards (Microtech), so this was a perfect match, right? WRONG! While the sound is decent at best, and the extremely small size is a bonus, there are lots of negatives:

1) wouldn't work with my Microtech 128 Meg CF cards, so I was stuck with 8 Megs. If I bought 32-64 Megs of compatible CF, the price would have been the same as more full-featured players, like the HipZip (which I LOVE and currently own), so what's the point?

2) Flimsy construction; if I kept it longer than the week I had it, I don't think it would have survived the year.

3) Can't fast-forward/rewind within a song

4) no LCD, therefore no idea what song comes after what

5) no tone control of any sort

6) poor battery life (many other players come with rechargeable internal Li-Ion batteries)

Rather than spend $100 on this player, and then another $70-$150 on memory, you're better off spending similar money on a player that actually has some features (at least a screen and tone control/fast-forward, for God's sake). Avoid this one... ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars It's Fun
I bought this player last week.... Great deal! Softwares are tricky to install. Tried 3 times before I got them to work. Poor instructions that come with player. You have to go to their web site and download their instruction and FAQ before you know how to download music into the cards. No you cannot delete music in the player. You've to do it with the card reader that comes with the player which works nicely. I can only record 4 to 5 songs into one 16MB cards with medium compression. It would be better if they provide one 32MB card instead of two 16MB cards. The player produce quite nice sound and is close to CD quality. There is a by pass in the parellel cord for hook up to your printer so you don't have to plug and unplug to use the printer. With this low price I really cannot complaint too much. I think it is a very good deal.

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth than price !
This smalll handheld player provides me high quailities more than the price I paid. It came with Card-Reader which let me download files to MMC very fast, just drag and drop I will get my favorite song into small memmory card, very easy to install. Two of 16 Mbyte MMC cards are enough to store 30 minutes of CD quality songs that 's not too bad compared with its prize. Moreover, it has build-in FM stereo tuner that don't have in many others players. Don't have to think much to buy it.

3-0 out of 5 stars I-Jam IJ-100 MP3/FM Radio Pocket Player
I just picked up my IJ-100 today. I got It for a discounted price at a clearance sale.It was missing two Sandisk 16Meg MMC cards (that the box said to contain). The MMC card reader plugs into your printer & PS/2 ports, both plugs have passthrough connections to allow you to use your Printer & PS/2 Device as normal. The card reader installation paused up a couple times at first. After I installed The card reader it was assigned a drive letter, wich in my case "g: ", then I just dragged my mp3's to "g:/" .

When I put the songs on one at a time, everything was fine, but trying to put on a whole pile of mp3's at one time paused up my computer(I had to reformat my MMC Card & start over). The maximum card that the I-Jam can read is 32Meg. I had a 64Meg card that I used. I copied about 40Megs (or 14 songs) onto the card and put it into my I-Jam. I skipped through the tracks while playing & once it got to track 13 (out of 14) The LCD Displayed "Stop". So I guess it read up to 32megs on my 64meg card. Lame, but at least I don't have to go out & buy a new card .

The FM Tuner only picks up like three stations were I am, and it just so happens that's haw many stations you can preset into memory. When the reception is crumby moving the headphones around muffles the signal even worse.

The Mp3 player is fairly simple to use, There isn't much for bells & wistles though. It plays upto 160kb bitrate MP3, but with 32megs of storage your best to stick with 96 or 128kb MP3's. You can adjust bass & Treble, The regular Play, Stop, Skip, but no fast foward/reverse. Random play, Intro play, Repeat one/all, & A-B repeat are included funtions. There are only 9 butons & over 16 functions so holding a button for 3seconds is required to do some things. For example tapping the power button once activates the blue backlight on the screen, but holding power down for 3 sec. shuts the unit off.

Overall I am happy with what I paid for it. If it wasn't for the Shotty MMC card reader, & the limit of 32megs, this would be a decent player.

2-0 out of 5 stars Just Good,,,
I Buy one of these last year for my 12 years old daughter and looks and listen good, last christmas we try to intall it to a new computer with Window XP and we could't install, then we try to find the drivers for these Opeating System on their Web Site, and they don't have yet, but they will never have, so these device will be unusefull in any Computer with these Operating System Windows XP.

5-0 out of 5 stars The I-Jam Is Fantastic!
First off all, I must say I love this thing! I can't believe how small it actually was! Which was even better! It's honestly the size of a normal forefinger. The memory chips are the size of a thumb nail! I must say I'm afraid of losing these little things, but it works VERY well! I haven't had any problems since I bought it and it's just what I thought.. great sound, low cost, and everything you need to take with you either when you're running or even on the beach.. forget my walkman! It's about time someone came out with something like this.. don't take my word for it, buy one and trust me.. you'll like it. I honestly can't find anything horrible to say.. and I would too if I had the chance :) ... Read more

I bought this several weeks ago and I take it EVERYWHERE! I love that it is USB and I can make downloads to the player's adapter very fast. The radio is a GREAT feature. My friends go ripped off when they bought other MP3 players. There is one are two things I dislike though first it comes with 2-16 MP cards instead of 1 32 MB and also the tracks are called Track 1 and so on instead of the name of the song. But all and all you can't get more for the money! BUY IT TODAY! Also the light in the back is a great feature. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Know what you're looking for!
I have read a lot of reviews that say this item is too expensive, not enough memory... and so on. My advice is, know what your needs are before you make a purchase. Yes, the item is fairly pricey. But the cost of owning the latest technology always is. I've encoding songs using the higher, and lower compression rates, and it's difficult to tell the difference. So,............use the lower rate, thus creating a smaller file, and get more songs on your data card. I typically get about 10 songs per data card. Ok, the cards themselves are not cheap, but they're so tiny they're cool. And after all isn't that the point? I use my I-Jam when I cycle, with some street style headphones, and I don't want to carry around a MD player. I want the smallest, lightest, (yet decent sounding) player I can get.

I find that this fulfills my needs, and for me is a good value for what I want. Do not be influenced by the negative reviews, this is a good product!

4-0 out of 5 stars Needs firmware update
Does anyone have an archive of the firmware updater for this product?

2-0 out of 5 stars IJ-100 Parrallel
I loved the unit! The small DUAL functioning buttons make it a little difficult to work at times but that's a price I'm willing to pay a unit so small. I throw it in my gym bag and don't have to worry about bringing an extra set of batteries since it only uses 2 AAAs. Even hooking it up in the car with a cassette adaptor was a wonderful experience and its easy to lock in the glove box. I give the unit only 2 stars because I had to purchase a separate MMC device since I-Jam never responded to my calls or e-mails. I had problems with the system recognizing the MMC device in my parallel port. The device was recognized only once before crashing my system. I then tried to uninstall the software and had only error messages returned. After dealing with Microsoft and running diagnostic programs, I learned that the problem was with the MMC device itself. If you don't mind small buttons, then this unit is for you. I love mine and think it is a great little unit. If you have any problems though, just return it where you purchased because my experience has taught me that I-Jam will not be of any help.

1-0 out of 5 stars don't get involved with this company
I bought an I-Jam in October 2000. At the time, they were offering a $50 rebate which I sent in promptly. In spite of repeated promises made by the company about a 6-8 week waiting time, etc. I *still* have not received the rebate after 6 months!

*extremely* bad way to do business. I have a feeling that it was all planned on their part.

BTW - The player also is not that great. The hardware to actually load the songs in unweildy. And the tiny display is less then informative and difficult to read.

4-0 out of 5 stars LOVE this thing.. so tiny.. but FM radio sux
I can't put this teeny tiny thing down, it's just the cutest. A great value with so many fuctionalities. A strange thing is 50% of the stuff I d/l from napster sounds crappy. Not sure if it's the files or it's the player? The FM radio reception is not very good.. can only pick up stations with VERY strong signals. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for working out!
The I-Jam is a cute, compact, light and an overall great MP3 player. I workout a lot and find it MUCH easier to clip this on my hip than a cumbersome tape player. The sound is excellent and it's extremely easy to set up and download music. The negative aspects of the I-Jam is that it comes with (2)16MB multimedia cards. They can only hold about 4 songs each and it's difficult to change the cards while working out. You can purchase 32MB multimedia cards (...) which allows you to record about 8-9 songs. It would be much better if the company added a 32MB card instead of the (2) 16MB cards. Overall for the price, weight, clarity, and size you can't beat it!

1-0 out of 5 stars REALLY BAD!
I got this mp3 player about a year ago. It was good at the time, but you could fit barely 3 songs on a disk. Now I have Windows xp and it is useless becaus efor some stupid reason they decided not to make drivers for xp. So now it is useless and i can't use it. I would definately not suggest buying this, go for a better one that you can actually use.

1-0 out of 5 stars I am returning this piece of JUNK!...
I bought 2 IJAM 100 MP3 players at a boxing day sale (12/2001), spent 15 hours TRYING to get them to work, and they are flaky, half baked products. DO NOT BUY!!! Why?
IJ-100 CRASHES if you have ID3 tags on your MP3s
IJ-100 CRASHES if you look at it the wrong way
IJ-100 CRASHES if you strip ID 3 tags, test individual files, and then load more than 3 file on the MMC card.
IJ-100 CRASHES if you use WINDOWS EXPLORER to transfer the files to the MMC instead of MusicMatch
IJ-100 Documentation/manuals [are bad].
IJ-100 DISTORTS HORRIBLY (Clicks, grunge, AM, etc) if the MP3 files are loud (higher volume during encoding)
IF you actually get it to work for a track, the audio quality is MEDIOCRE.
FM in unit is useless, very noisy, incapable of holding a station with any quality audio maintained

...DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!

1-0 out of 5 stars I-Jam not be jammin'
I-Jam started off to be a pretty cool little MP-3 player when I bought it a year ago. Last year I was thinking that MMC was going to take off and everyone would have 256mb MMC cards for $50 by now. Well, guess what!??! MMC didn't take off. You are lucky if you can find a 64mb MMC at a reasonable price. But oh wait - there's more. It seems with all the popular media formats (MP3, WMA, etc), the I-Jam isn't so flexible about reading. Now I can't even get three songs to play consistently on this beautiful red player. So now I am shopping for another mp3 player. On the bright side, it is small and the FM tuner works awesome! Three presets isn't enough, but still good enough to make it useful as something more than a small anchor for my aquarium.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great little Machine
There is simply no competiton for the IJ100. For the price the quality can't be beat. Although there are better players out there, none can be bought this cheap. The only downside is the low memory capacities, and the high cost of bigger memory cards. The sound is as good as a CD. The radio also sounds good. In the end, this player is well worth the money. ... Read more

MP3newswire.net
The size of a pager, the I-Jam is the smallest MP3 player presently shipping. What's more, the player turns out to be a pretty darn good unit that showcases the convenience and strengths of the MP3 format over established analog and digital formats. We are impressed overall with the results, though there was one particular shortcoming.

The Hardware

The I-Jam sells for $150 and for that you get a 32MB unit with an FM tuner. Running on two AAA batteries, the player comes in a choice of 5 colors; Black Rhino, Silver Bullet, Lemon Drop, Razz Jazz Red, and Chi-Town Blue. As a bonus, the I-Jam also comes with a $50 gift certificate from Emusic, which, at $0.99 a song, is a great way to start a music library made up of established artists.

The player comes with a parallel port flash card drive for downloading the tunes. This winter, the I-Jam will offer an optional USB cable for the unit that will not only offer speedier downloads, but with added software, make the unit Mac-compatible. With 2.5 million iMac users out there, this helps expand Apple owner's limited MP3 options.

Getting started: A-

The I-Jam uses an external memory card drive that attaches to both the printer and keyboard ports using a pass-through cable. The user downloads MP3 files directly to MultiMedia Flash (MMC) cards, and then inserts the card into the player. It took us only a moment to attach the cables.

The tiny MultiMedia flash cards that the I-Jam uses are 1/4th the size of the CompactFlash cards found in the RCA Lyra and half the size of the SmartMedia cards found in the Rio. MMC flash allows the I-Jam to take on its diminutive dimensions. There is a trade off to using these small cards as they are limited to a capacity that presently tops out at 16MB (in comparison, Delkin just started shipping 224MB CompactFlash cards). Larger capacity MMC's are on the horizon.

The I-Jam comes with two 16MB flash cards for a total of 32MB of memory.

We loaded the drivers for the external card drive and downloaded several MP3 files to one of the flash cards. An icon appears for the drive in Windows Explorer and you download files to the card the same way you transfer files to a floppy disk. You can't get more basic than that and, frankly, there is a virtue to such simplicity, even if it seems a tad crude when compared to some of the elaborate interfaces in competing MP3 units.

Files downloaded quickly, about 15 seconds per track. The I-Jam has no internal memory, using flash chips to store all files. As higher capacity flash chips become available, the unit's storage potential expands, thus avoiding obsolescence due to limited memory.

The I-Jam comes with MusicMatch Jukebox, one of the best programs available for ripping and encoding your favorite CD tracks into the MP3 format.

Controls: A-

The I-Jam has small, but well laid out, controls and we had no problem manipulating the buttons. Considering how petite the unit is, we feel the manufacturer did a good job with the key layout. A hold button is offered to avoid accidental key triggering.

The Display: C -

The small one line display is the I-Jam's weakest link. The text isn't all that clear and we sometimes had to tilt the unit to read it because of side glare. The backlight didn't help all that much either, a further disappointment. The unit does not display the file name or any ID3 info. It just shows track1, track2, etc. when in MP3 mode.

Sound: A

The unit itself gave us excellent sound. The player offers tone and bass control which is better than the 3 or 5 tone presets (Jazz, Pop, Rock, etc.) competing portables offer. The earbuds that came with the I-Jam did an OK job, but we noticed a significant improvement when we shifted over to the Sennheiser MX-4 earbuds, especially in the bass. We recommend upgrading the ear and headphones on almost all of the units we have tested so far, so rather than count against it in the scores, we simply suggest buyers incorporate the cost of a pair of Sony or Sennheiser buds, about $15-$20, when pricing units.

Conclusion

The I-Jam's greatest virtue is it's size and that's what sets this player apart from the competition. The unit offers great sound in a tight, light package, which should make it a favorite of joggers and anyone else big on daily exercise. If the smallest unit obtainable is what you want, look no further than the I-Jam.

There is a cost to these modest dimensions and that comes in the form of a substandard display, which despite the limited acreage on the unit's faceplate, could have been better.

The FM radio is another plus as it allows music to continue to flow after the user runs through all the MP3 tunes. The player's ability to preset three stations is an added convenience.

Final Score: B+

4-0 out of 5 stars Tight!!!!
Damn, This little toy is off the chizzzzzzannnnggggg! It is also very easy to install, use, and cool looking as well! Only thing bad is that the disk doesn't hold to many songs. Parents this is the perfect gift for your teens, besides it's at good price too! Good, no need to spend money on the expensive CD burner and blank 80 mb disks!

2-0 out of 5 stars Very poor sound quality. Not a bad price though!
I just received this little toy the other day and I have to say that I am not too impressed with the sound. Its better than the radio, but its not as good as a cd (like the say). You cannot beat the price though... If you want a good MP3 player you will have to spend a little more... The bad thing about these players is that they dont have a FM tuner. This function can be very handy if you work out or run. Like they say it is the smallest MP3 player, so it doesnt slow you down like those large radios might.

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing little thing
This is the perfect little object... it easily allows you to listen to songs in great waulity and then delete em when you font want them... I want to give this a 4.5 because i think it dosent hold too much memory.. and the little disks they come in are easily lost.. but it dosent deserve a 4 so i gave it a 5.. Its great for the price, and small.... I love it

4-0 out of 5 stars The coolest little gizmo I've ever seen!
The MP3 player is absolutely the niftiest thing I've seen in a long time. I've been "borrowing" my son's while he is at school to use when I power walk....the only problem is his music....I'm just going to have to get my own! The sound is incredible. It really gets you moving! It's very light and uncumbersome, perfect for running. The only problem I've experienced is some static when using the FM tuner. I definitely recommend the MP3 to any walker or runner. ... Read more
