    "This little Eleston Portable MP3 player seem to be a useless buy on the surface, but the more I think of it, the more I realize how my phone has been such an unreliable way of listening to music. There were so many times that I am worried that I will drain the battery if I listen to long hours of music to it. Buying this MP3 player solves that. It's cheap, and can last you 70 hours of music and I need this in my life."

    "The first 3 iPod shuffle generations are great but the iPod Shuffle 4th generation is a major improvement over the first 3. I like that this player is very tiny and I love being able to play 15 hours of continuous music without having to recharge. "

    "I purchased the Tomameri MP3 player to replace my old Ipod. It is very reasonably priced, but you get what you pay for. It did not come with instructions and was not intuitive to learn the controls. It does not have expected features such as music shuffle or the ability to charge with USB. After several months of use, it seems like the buttons are starting to wear out as I have to push them hard to get a response. I do like that I can change out the memory card, so I don't have to purchase a device with a huge internal memory. This MP3 player may be a good option if you want an inexpensive player for a child, but I would not recommend it if you want long lasting performance and usability."
