Powerful value in a small package

by topcat on 1/14/2010

I bought an iVU Latte for Christmas. Not bad, but not much volume and the battery seemed good only about 8 - 10 hours. I returned it and bought the S545, 16GB. Wow, what a difference! The built in speakers are great, good sound. The directions in the Quick Start are very good. I installed the software and was transferring songs in a few minutes. The filing system is very good and the system is compatible with Windows XP or Vista. I can pick a folder (album) play all the songs and it will shut off or you can pick all songs. Controls are clear and easy to figure out and use. Screen is sharp and the white lettering is easy to read. I use a hearing aid so headphones can cause a problem. Certain ones work great, others not so great. FM & presets very good. I don't want games or flicking lighters (Touch) & at ~$110, this does everything well. Add photos and run a slide show, or show video. Only thing i would add is a SD card slot.
