Whilst walking through a sony style shop in Germany, I remember being astounded by the fact that they were selling a Sony 2gb mp3 player for 30euros! I seem to have a huge collection of MP3 players…the reason…well I easily get bored of my older items and they end up in a drawer hidden away.
aestra 5:15pm on Friday, May 28th, 2010 
great sound i have bought five of these for family members and they are superb.easy to operate with a 2gb flash memory so no moving parts. Excellent value for money Anyone considering purchasing one of these go for it! the rechargeable battery via USB alone is worth it!

Best Sub 4GB MP3 Player Ever Made at Any Cost! This is my mp3 player of choice. This is simply the best MP3 player ever made sub 4GB! This thing does not like VISTA? I am a Sony fan but i was tearing my hair out trying to get this to work on a VAIO laptop running Vista.
