Dell came out with its version of the "ipod killer" a few years ago with the DJ. The DJ comes in various sizes of hard drive space such as 5gb, 15gb, and 30gb. While not as mass marketed as Apple's Ipod was, it still retains as one the higher end mp3 players.
Turning the DJ and seeing the bright blue background with black text was enlightening. It was very easy to read during the day and night. Shuffling through my songs I came across different ways of sorting them such as: by artist, by song, by album, by playlist, or by viewing all the tracks. Using the middle scrollwheel to scroll through the choices and very convienent and when I found a song I wanted to play, I just clicked in the scroll wheel and it was playing. The other buttons included a play/pause button, forward and backwards a track, a key lock and side volume controls.
The audio quality was very good. I could hear the bass and treble with the included earbuds ( I recommend spending a bit more on a pair than the included ones). The player also comes with an equalizer with presets that can be acustomed to anyones taste. The battery life was excellent! Dell quotes 16 hours of playtime with a 6 hour full charge.
The dragging and dropping of tunes from computer to DJ can be daunting but I do enjoy that you can sync up with your songs and playlists right off of windows media player.
Overall I recommend this purchase if you can find one anymore. Dell stopped selling them a year ago.
