It's an allrounder with camera, video camera, and mp3 has upgradeable memory cards
Chews batteries, Software glitches, memory will have to be upgraded.
This MP3 is a good allrounder but as you can imagine they have reduced the quality of all items to include them. The video works well but with the 16mb card that is included you get about 1 min of filming. You can put about 5 mp3 songs on the player before it's full so hope you like those 5 songs. The camera photo's are fairly low res but you can put a good number of photos on it. You can listen to about 20 songs before the 3 AAA battries run out so it would be wise to invest in some rechargable battries.
I upgraded to a 64 meg card which set me back about $160 australian (it was a generic-Kodak ones are even more expensive) this allowed me to put about 16 MP3 or 3.5min of video or 350 photo's. The cradle that came with it worked with one of my computers but not the other one so I have to then buy a card reader ($100 australian) to put mp3 on the player. The card reader was well worth it because it works like a plug and play hard drive I can put any files on the 64mb card i bought and transfer them from computer to computer. We have another MP3 player that dosn't eat battries and has a 64mb space on board but is not upgradeable. If you are after a three in one then it is one of the better ones on the market with everything upgradeable and it's a great toy with an large screen good sound easy use with lots of features.
