Okay for music, avoid for podcasts
I've been using this for about 4 weeks. I wanted a cheap non-Apple, MP3 player for listening to podcasts and went with the GPX ML551B.
The negatives outweigh the positives. The only real positive is that I can easily drag/drop files to it, and it's ready to go (I hate iTunes).
If you are only going to play music on it, it's fine. If you are going to be listening to longer audio files - like podcasts - you should be aware of the following.
Does not play WMA files
I just purchased this player and tried to load it with a WMA file. I got an error message stating that it does not support this type of file from the program I was using for transfer. Then I tried transferred a WMA file directly to the player and got an ERROR on the player. It really will NOT play WMA as advertised. I wrote to the company and was told there was no such model number - so I sent them a picture. I will update this review if they respond.
