I am very happy with the Sandisk MP3. The two things that pleased me most was that it was very easy to load songs and has lots of memory. I have 500 songs on mine already and it is not even half full. I put my favorite albums on it twice because there is so much memory. Two AAA batteries last for nearly 10 hours. The headphones that came with it were surprisingly comfortable. I needed to purchase two MP3s: his and hers. With a very reasonable price it is hard to beat. The down side is the audio quality is acceptable but not great. The audio quality issue I believe is common with this type of digital media. Also the screen can be hard to read when it is worn on your arm.
