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.
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.
If you're looking for a cheap MP3 player from a well-known brand, the Creative Mosaic EZ300 is an option. It is not one we would recommend though, with few quantifiable improvements over the earlier ZEN Mosaic and a feature list that looks markedly outdated next to competitors offerings.
