    Looks real hot but have no idea what these usually cost. Is this a recent price drop? What's the usual price for an 8GB player?

    I agree. I bought one of their old Play.com branded mp3 players. Worst piece of tech ever. Poor build quality and really crap software.

    Stay away from these products.

    Be aware that these 'cheap' MP3 players will probably have a cheap DSP chip, so in low volume or between tracks you may hear a hiss. Still cheap for an 8gb player though.

    get a 2GB sansa clip+ for £20 and stick in an micro SD card. sansa clip+ sound quality is the business.

    wow is this how much these things cost? in my apple universe this rocks my world at this price. although i am happy to pay 'over the odds' for my 'rubbish apple kit' so let's not get started on that. but surely for my mum this would be great

    Yup, buts theres stuff thats made in china and then theres cheap Chinese rubbish. Apple/Microsoft/SanDisk et al will manufacture their products in China but will expect higher standards of quality. Generic non-branded products are manufactured in China to the spec of whoever is manufacturing them, usually not to the same quality standards as product designs that are specifically exported from Western regions.

    There's two in my household. An 8GB micro SD card is only £10.99 from Play and the 16GB and 32GB ones will drop in price in no time with the speed technology.
    They play FLAC and OGGs files too and they're smaller than the size of a matchbox!

    The difference being that this is made by some poor 5 year old asian kids in awful working conditions with extremely low quality plastics.

    Apple, quality? Whilst I love OSX the ipod is a substandard mp3 player. Average to below sound quality doesn't mean "higher standards of quality" in my world.

    Sandisk aren't a great example either, there are decent chinese made products, but sandisks like are blown away by the japanese manufacturers (kingston etc).

    Same as pretty much all made in china products - why do you think western companies outsource to countries like china? The lack of worker protection programs.

    I bought this some time ago from Play.com but at a much higher price! Nice to see it has been reduced to a price that reflects its quality. This is definitely one of the tackier MP3 models available.

    Adding to the mentioned, I also have bought a play.com mp3 player in the past and it went straight back for a refund after a day due to a fault. It was a blessing really as didn't like a single thing about it once received.

    That was a while back so I can't comment or rate this as they may...... may have notched it up a gear. Personal experience has kept me away though.

    To stop a spate of suicides, Foxcon (com?) increased pay by 30% and then another 70% in one week.

    I also bought this sometime ago and would not recommend it, the software is terrible and it's functionally very poor.
