I bought two of these, one for my 8 year old and one for my mom. I'm really wishing I'd ordered myself one to. This little thing is very cool and sleek looking.
Its small enough to fit in your hand, but is supposed to hold up to 1, 000 songs. I put about 300 songs on theirs, and about 100 pictures. The fact that it will also display pictures is what had me hooked.
It was very easy to upload the songs and photos using media player. All the cords and ear buds came with them.
For my mom, I can upload current pictures of the kids for her to show off at work. Something that grandmas like to do. Now she can always have upgated ones with her. She was talking about getting a CD player for her car. So I got her this, because it is cheaper than buying a car CD player and the CD's. With this I just uploaded all the songs we already owned that where stored in the computer. I also up load any of the church services she misses, or any that she wants to listen to again. It took a couple walk throughs to explain how the buttons worked, but she figured it out fast.
For my 8 year old, he already new all the basics of using an MP3 player, since daddy has one. He likes that he can go to certain songs he likes without having to change CD's.
We all think this is a great MP3/picture player.
