Works well for those of us that abhor using programs like iTunes to transfer and sync music and photos. I like that you can drag and drop the music on your own. The radio works well, too, and I wish more mp3 players had them. I have an iPhone so I can't say that I would give it up anytime soon, but I do like that you can interface with the device without having to use a memory intensive program like iTunes. If you're looking for a device that is small, compact and a good companion when you're at the gym or out and about, this device fits the bill. It even works well through my car stereo system, and it's not so expensive that I can't just leave it in the car.
