Was my favorite and lasted for years. It just died recently, so I bought this one. The battery life is terrible, it no longer holds any charge. The interface is awful as well, difficult to navigate the menu while playing music, it directs you not to the same folder, but to the beginning of the directory each time. So if you wanna pick a new song from it, gotta sort back through each time annoyingly.
Even that could be ignored because the sound quality is okay. But the battery just dies, too.
