I bought this item almost 2 years ago now and it still works great. Has great sound through the headset and even if I connect it to my computer it pulls through brilliant sound. It's very sleek, stylish, and small will fit in the palm of your hand or even in a pocket on your shirt. It has great features like you can add a extra memory which it has the sslot for, you can watch videos, show off pictures on it to friends, has a radio built in and a voice recorder on top of already being a mp3 player. Now mine exactly was only a 2GB but you can get bigger compacity built in or just get a external which I haven't done yet. The only set backs that I have seen to this player is of course it being black and the polish look shows every spec of dust or finger print so you will find yourself constantly cleaning it and the fact that sometimes it will freeze on you when you have it charging and you don't shut it off before unplugging the charger the screen will freeze the only way to get it to work right after is take the battery out and reset it. As far as with the finger prints on it I would suggest getting a silicone sleeve like you will see in one of my pictures it helps alot.
