Good for the Price, but Would NOT Recomend
As for the player itself, the button clicks are loud and the sound quality is remarkably bad, unless (at least for me) you don't plug the headphones in all the way. In addition, the songs play in the order that they are in on the card and there is no way to switch it into a shuffle mode.
A great addition to your Samsung phone
I like to listen to music and podcasts while I'm working out or working in the house and garden. The Samsung Muse is great for these things as it's small, easy to load with programming and has great battery life. I've used several different MP3 players in the past. Each has had drawbacks and nice features. I'm very pleased with my Samsung Muse as it has enough capacity to hold what I need, and yet is small and unobtrusive.
Setting up the Muse was easy.
Affordable price, 2x storage of iPod Shuffle
People who are into iPod shuffle-type MP3 players should dig the $50 Samsung Muse. You get a small, light, clip-able device that delivers decent audio, which is all you need. The fact that it can sync music from a smartphone as well as a PC is a nice bonus, though choosing individual tracks can be a challenge. It's the same price as an iPod shuffle yet offers twice as much storage space (4GB vs 2GB), which is also a nice bonus, though 4GB still doesn't get you far.
Ear buds are surprisingly good
I'm digging the pebble. It's designed to be the sort of lightweight MP3 player you might wear to the gym, and as that it performs wonderfully. As a more full-time player, you're obviously missing a display and proper scrubbing. But you knew that going into this. It's a "shuffle"-type device, made even more evident by the fact that I haven't quite figured out how it decides what order to play the songs.
Pretty good, for about 3 months
This mp4 is pretty good for about the first 3 months. had no problems at all with it.
then about one week ago i decided to try putting an episode of a show onto it after converting of course.
after it transferred i tried to view it and the device froze completely. i LITERALLY had to wait for the battery to die and i happened to be fully charged at the time. so that was 4 hours waiting for it to die then waiting for it to recharge.
Died within 12 days
I bought this mp3 player locally, on sale, based on the high reviews by others here on Amazon.com. The Trio T2810C is loaded with features, so I was really excited about the purchase. However, the touchscreen never worked very good for me. I was tap, tap, tapping away trying to get the thing to finally respond. So that was disappointing. I tried all the features and they worked more or less as promised.
Cheap but clunky
Nice little mp3 player - what can you expect for $25? The reason I am giving it two out of five stars is its poor design. Adjusting the volume (single most important function) cannot be done with the buttons on top of the player but you have to bring up a menu sweeping the surface. Also there is no 'hold' button, while fumbling around to clip it on your clothes it is all too easy to accidentally scroll to the next track. Designed by someone who does not use it on a daily basis.
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.
A paper weight is more functional
For Christmas the kids got one of these each from a family friend. It turns on, screen navigates and I can change options. FM radio works, voice recording/playback of it works. I cannot put MP3s on it however. This blasted thing will not recognize any file format I use (mp3 and wav) as music.
First thing I did was link it to the computer via USB. Ok, I see the root directory and no subfolders. I create one titled MP3 and load up music.
