Pros: Large display that looks really good, good sound quality, excellent earphones Cons: No play lists, files listed in order they are copied to device, no ripping software, Touchscreen does not calibrate well (controls do not line up with their "Touch-zones"), Converted AVI's loose sync between sound and video. All in all, it is a nice device, shiny chrome. Looks almost like it is an iPhone or iTouch player. The 4G capacity, plus the availability of a microSD slot make it a good value. However, there is no software for manipulating multimedia data other than Explorer in Windows and dragging and dropping files. And it does not come with any ripping software to convert your CD's to MP3s. It is not DRM compatible either. The biggest missing feature is no support for play lists. There is no way to create one using the device, and Windows Media Player play lists do not show up when browsing using the device for music. The manual is very light, with very little information, and a lot of info missing - like how just momentarily pressing the power button brings up a touch screen calibration utility. You have to hold the button down to turn it off. There is also a carrying strap it came with that I can find no way to attach to the device. The radio works well, easy to set up manually and program in favorites. And the photos display very rich, and high quality. Summary: If you a techie, you will like it. If you have never ripped CD's or are technologically challenged, stay away from Hip Street. For more information: Visit Hip Street's web site at http://www.hipstreetonline.com/.

Works Great

The player works great...The only thing i would change is that you can not do more than one thing at a time. I would like to be able to look through the picture and still have the music playing, but you can't. Overall I like the player and would recommend it.... Read More
