that's why i spend $250 on music, movie, photo, radio, voice recording.

Some of us have a deep passion for music, such as myself. I like to have music with me whenever, however possible. A player lets me do just that. If I have to pay a little more for what i love, so be it.

In reply to: no

That is my point. If music is your passion yes. I like to listen to music but don't love to. Thus dishing out $250, but when you think that for $500 you can get something that has larger hard drive and screen, thus making it more video based, I would say go for this.
If you want to pay $300, pay a little more and get something much better. On the other had If you love music get and ipod.

The music the "book" was listening to and the circumstances he was in would make this a good idea.

My personal preference is a Buslink 7" portable dvd player that plays almost everything for about $100.

A music junkie that caries his DAP everywhere for instant entertainment, so yes it was worth the $300.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
