I can understand this as a starter mp3 player, but even then, I can find much better. I don't understand what people see in this. Save a little more money and buy a Nano, or a much better mp3 player with more bang for its buck. You can't see what you're listening to on this thing, so you have to scroll through ever song to get to what you really want to hear. I don't know about you or anyone else, but I find it exasperating to go through a list of 398 songs on my friend's iPod to look for songs that I am willing to listen to at the moment. Yes, I used her mp3 player, because I already knew that I would never buy the iPod Shuffle. It's really not worth my time, and unfortunately, I can't get those minutes I wasted looking for one song back. Don't buy this for yourself, you deserve much better than this.
