Yet another impressive apple product
I bought the ipod shuffle because the ipod touch just seemed a little too big and a little too involved to take with me while running. It shames me to even say that... years ago I ran with a walkman cassette player that probably weighed 4 lbs and was about 50x as big... Anyway, for my purposes, the shuffle is perfect. It is tiny, light weight, and has a clip that will actually hold it onto your clothing pretty much anywhere you want to clip it.
The iPod Shuffle's buttons are back, and the lightest, smallest MP3 player on the planet is now better than ever.

Quality app ecosystem
The 4th Generation iPad is only a minor improvement over its predecessor but still remains the tablet to beat. An upgraded A6X processor, Apple's new Lightning connector and a better front facing camera are the main differences. All in all this is an iterative upgrade that should only interest those who don't already own a 3rd Generation iPad.
Stylish design, DAB+ support, Good lossless format support
The iRiver S100 is a slim, stylish and well-made media player that's technically future-proofed thanks to its inclusion of DAB support. However, a very patchy interface and real-world DAB performance that's miles away from what you'd get with a home set costing half the price it's not the cutting-edge radio solution we've been hoping for. Not enough has improved since 2005.
For what it's worth
For what its worth, I like the unit, the battery last long enough for me to make my 18 hours in flights. This unit has but one down fall, You can not create a play list with it. You have to create the play list on your computer and then load it in. I find this very inconvenient. I like to play music I am in the mood for, not plan on what mood I will be in. If this unit had that I would have rated it higher.
Decent bundled earphones
Not quite cheap, but definitely cheerful, the NWZ-E463 combines a natty design with a good-looking interface and a wealth of music-related features. There are some significant bits missing, such as lossless format support, expandable memory and a standard USB connection, but this won't bother everyone. The key to this player is that, thanks to its thumb-friendly physical controls, pleasant interface and decent earphones, it's a device that's enjoyable to use.
Battery life, Easy to navigate menu system, Sound Quality
For a fairly low budget price tag, the NWZ-E463 model offers a snazzy design with a great range of music-related features. There are some minor niggles such as too small sized buttons and menu issues, but overall, a pleasing interface along with a solid pair of sound isolating earphones. All of these features make this music player an attractive little device all round.
Great improvement on the first generation
I own the previous iteration of this device which is now available for $50. I was so happy with the previous generation that I bought one for my brother and his wife for Christmas. The 1stGen product is great. For anyone who works out and hates headphone cables, it provides hours of music with reasonably thought-out controls.
When I saw that Sony had come out with a new and improved version, I had to have it. So far I have been impressed.
Built-in rechargeable battery
Sony NWZ-W262 2GB Walkman MP3 Player comes with the USB connectivity and the playback supported files are MP3, WMA (Non-DRM), WMA (DRM), AAC-LC, linear PCM. Sony provides a range of accessories which comes along the purchase of this model and they are quick start guide, built-in rechargeable battery, USB cable accessories attachment.
Just what i needed
This little player is excellent for my needs, and likely many others'. After owning a cowon iaudio 7 for many years, this was my recent replacement. You can tell what i needed from the "pros" list; i listed some "cons," mostly to inform potential buyers. none of these has a big impact for my uses.
Stunning build quality and construction materials
The Cowon C2 is a portable media player (PMP) with a touch screen and wide range of media format support. It can be considered as a successor to the ever popular Cowon D2 (and D2+). They are similar in many ways such as the small form factor and expandable memory by the means of microSD cards.
Best-in-class BBE sound enhancements, very good sounding hardware EQ
The Cowon C2 is a very good audio player, packed full of features and top notch sound tweaks. It would be a decent video player too, but the low-res 4:3 screen isn't really up to today's standards. Resistive touch controls are also a bit dated for people being spoiled by snappy capacitive touch screens, but it certainly is usable.
The user interface works, but it's a matter of getting used to its gimmicky looks and some awkward usability decisions.
Top notch audio reproduction
Minor moans and groans aside, the Cowon C2 is a mighty audio reproduction device which puts others in the same price bracket to shame. The lack of modern bells and whistles like capacitive touchscreen, integrated Wi-Fi, user customization, and so on might not to be everyone's taste but if the quality of the audio output is your main concern - the C2 kicks some serious sonic butt. I would expect to be paying at least twice the asking price for such a capable player.
A simple, few-frills MP3 player that's well-suited to gym bunnies and runners, we wouldn't recommend using the NWZ-B162 as your primary MP3 player, but it makes a solid backup. It's ready to give you a burst of a couple of hours playback after just a few minutes of charging and sound quality is decent at the price.
On-board USB connection
The NWZ-B162 is a no-frills product that delivers decent sound quality at a bargain price. With just 2GB of memory on board, it's unlikely that most people will be buying this as their primary music player, but it's ideal as a back-up for when you don't want to take any risks with a pricier gadget. If you're going for a run or indulging in some poolside tunes then this pint-sized player is a handy gadget to have at your fingertips.
Cheap but clunky
Nice little mp3 player - what can you expect for $25? The reason I am giving it two out of five stars is its poor design. Adjusting the volume (single most important function) cannot be done with the buttons on top of the player but you have to bring up a menu sweeping the surface. Also there is no 'hold' button, while fumbling around to clip it on your clothes it is all too easy to accidentally scroll to the next track. Designed by someone who does not use it on a daily basis.
Nice mp3 with great sound and interface
First off, I have no idea why any manufacturer would make an mp3 player that only has 2 gigs in it. That ship has sailed. 4GB is a minimum nowadays, with 8GB becoming the norm. Whatever product manager thought that was a good idea should probably move on, and out of the technology realm...
For sake of a fair evaluation, I'll be comparing this Philips Raga to my mp3 player of choice, the SanDisk Sansa Fuze .
Its easy to download music but...
It is ridiculously hard to download video, the screen is unresponsive, and tit wasn't very durable. Very cheap plastic, like a cheap knockoff child's toy. Now I have a Pyrus MP3/MP4/MP5 Player I got for 40$ and i LOVE IT. Search for "Pyrus Electronics 4gb Mp3/mp4/mp5 Player with 2.8 Inch Touch Screen and All Stainless Steel Casing - Black" instead, MUCH better buy.
Has a major design flaw
Used it about 6 times and was fairly satisfied. Sound quality for this type player good, easy to load (can not seem to change songs once placed though, not good) fairly comfortable to wear when swimming. The plug to access the plug in port, popped out on it's own. I had put it in correctly. Water got in and I hope after it dries out it will come back to life, but for now it's dead.
