Nice to see that it can play OGG files, but it seems rather expensive just for a small personal music
player.

I bought a brand new player off Trademe that can do all those things
and more, for less than sixty bucks.

If its one of the china special ones imported by some random, then good
luck when it breaks or needs software upgrades.

The one I looked at and tried couldnt even play tracks gapless -
something even the iPod has had for many years now.

If it breaks within the warranty period then return it to the place you purchased it from, otherwise tough.

Can't think of any reason why an MP3 playing device should require software upgrades - they should
just work like any other appliance.

Mr trademe seller will be gone in 6-8 weeks when they close up and
reopen under a new name. Plus if you bid on TM there is no CGA protection.

They need software updates because they tend to come with really buggy
stuff.

All the good ones have software upgrades that is very Normal

And from what I have just seen most of the TradeMe MP3 players that I looked
at had 7 or 30 day warranties..

Seems to me they are just Junk..
