good MP3 / MP4 player like the iPod nano

by Willbost / June 24, 2006 10:16 PM PDT

U just bought a great mp3 player that plays videos and it looks exactly like the iPod nano. for 1gb it was under 50 quid. Im not being paid by this company or anything but just thought I would share my review. I ordered from www.electrobytes.co.uk and it arrived the next day. the product is here http://www.electrobytes.co.uk/catalog/product_info.php/products_id/188

Was impressed, cheapest price I saw and sound quality great, feature by feature:

1) I really wanted a radio, this one is great, it auto scans for stations and you can pre set up to 20 radios stations, it displays it on the screen

2) I wanted to organise my music into folders, I dragged in my windows folders (album by album, and it displays them in a really orgised way, so I can just listen to one album at a time etc, even does like a global shuffle on tracks also

3) The movie display is awesom really clear, and great for when im commuting to work

4) I charged via my PC, took 3-4 hours, I would say buy the additional mains charger here as its a lot lot quicker

5) great the navigation keys are on the front, and really easy to work out

6) plays WMA files, which like me if you download music from Microsoft is good, cos the ipod nano dosent support WMA, this one does.

7) The look and feel of the player is great, i think it might get scratched tho so will look out for a case for it

Cool Electrobytes posted the same day I paid, was sent Royal mail recorded which you cant argue with! Product was in a plush box fit to give as a present for someone with all the goodies inside. i would use electrobytes angain and the player is wicked

Accessories did it include?

I just don't think 1GB is enough.

1G is not going very far for video. It sound more like a commercial to me.
