Great little MP3 Player!
February 12, 2019
I bought this unit for my mom since she loved her little MP3 player I bought for her years ago. She didn't want to get an iPod or any other type of smart device, just a MP3 player that had a speaker and microphone built in. The current one she had was a Red Sony Walkman MP3 player that finally is showing some age and has some wear and tear on it and it was time for an upgrade.
I did some research and most of the review sites pointed at AGPTEK branded units. So I decided to give them a try since it looked like it was a very easy to use unit. I wanted one that had at least 16gb of storage, which doubled her current one, but the nice thing is, it can support additional storage for up to 128GB microSD cards. And for under $40 dollars, you get a lot of value out of it. It also has a FM antenna that comes with the unit since it does support Radio functions as well, only thing is, you lose the headphone jack because that's where the antenna plugs in, so you will be either using bluetooth or the speaker.
It is a very easy to use MP3 player. Very straight forward controls, good GUI, and it takes a standard Micro USB cable. Not a proprietary one like the one my mom had on her Sony Walkman. It's speaker is also very decent, only complaint I have is that it is on the back of the unit, so if you lay it on its back, half the sound goes away. It does have bluetooth functions but that feature in our case, wont really get used at all. The unit does feel sturdy and has some weight to it. Firmware updates are quick and easy. All you have to do is go to AGPTEK's website and just find the compatible model of your player, and it downloads. It took less then 30 seconds for it to update the firmware and we were up and running again.
And to top it all off, you don't have to use drag and drop to add the music. Just use the standard Windows Media Player that is built in on Windows to use it for sync purpose, makes it a lot more organized and quicker in my opinion. All in all, I am extremely happy with the purchase and look forward to more great products from AGPTEK.
