About a year and a half ago my trusty and beloved MP3 player gave out after 7 years of heavy use and abuse. It was a simple no frills, small and
lightweight, built to last MP3 player. I tried to replace it but what once cost me $49 is now going for $400 on amazon and e-bay.
Feeling good about the company that made my trusty MP3 player, and the one I owned prior to that which I gave to my daughter, I decided to purchase 2
of their newer models, one for me and one for my son. The new model was larger than I liked and had a ton of bells and whistles that made it take
forever to turn on, but I spent the money and and was happy to have something. Well, they were nothing but trouble from the start, and I had to
constantly reset them back to factory settings. Within months both were broken beyond repair and the company ignored every single attempt to contact
them about my warranty.
I have been in the market for a new one ever since and can't find one that suits my needs.
I need something small and lightweight. I use it when gardening, doing housework, exercising ect. anything too big just gets in the way.
I don't want extras, no camera, no internet, ect.
I do want a screen and playlist options so I can select the songs that I want.
I want QUALITY! I don't want something that is going to break in a few months.
I don't want to spend more than $50-60
Can anyone help me out?
