M500 - good choice
by jweint / February 22, 2005 1:45 AM PST

I've owned an M500 since the end of December. It's a great little device. Versatile MP3/WMA playback. Great sound, though you need to replace the earbuds that come with it right away. I purchased a set of Koss PortaPros and it sounds wonderful. The FM section is decent though I haven't used the FM recorder yet. My only gripe is the user interface. It's a little too simple and somewhat tedious to scroll through a long list of albums or artists. Otherwise, I'm happy with my choice of player.
