For the money, this player is not bad. I bought it when it was on sale for $30.00 inc shipping. It is small, has good battery life, and is much more like a USB thumb drive than an MP3 player. There are some key features missing however:
* there is no resume playback. when the player is shut off, the first song in the list will be played upon turning the player on for its next use.
* the player does not remember settings. every time the player is turned on, you have to manually choose shuffle, select an equalizer setting, select the mode, etc.
* the UI in general is lacking and not very intuitive. navigation is a pain.
* be careful when wearing polyester clothes as the slightest amount of static electricity will shut off the player.
I honestly would have chosen another player had I known all of this, but for now I guess this will work fine in my car (using the USB connection, line-in would not be worth it at all).
