I Guess some people like to fiddle thats why you have problems, if you just plug it in the PC, load music, remove from PC, put on the headphones and press play... it's simple.
Why Format! why upgrade firmware! just use it out of the box. (read more)

MATSUI 120 MR
I've got two of these (I mis-placed my first one which I found again but after I'd bought a replacement). I've used both regularly for a couple of years, often while out running and I've never had any problems with them.
While the Matsui isn't as stylist as an ipod or have as many facilities, it does allow the user to skip through songs or scroll down a list to find a particular album or song.
If you're not happy with the sound it'll be due to the EQ setting not being right for... (read more)

Mine hasn't lasted 2 months. It won't switch off, keeps going over the same programs and I have to take the battery out. Took it back to the shop, got another and it didn't last the week. Spend a bit extra and get a decent one (read more)

To somebody looking at the Matsui 120MR MP3 Player Recorder and considering it in a shop, I would say 'don't even go there', because the MP3 player is more hassle than it's worth. I still have mine (where it rarely works as an MP3 player, it still serves as a good memory stick) but I think that I'm going to buy a different one.
Overall, you'd be much better off spending a little extra to get a decent model. I bought this in December 2006, it messed up in February that year and as a result I... (read more)

I was advised to buy the Matsui 120MR MP3 Player by an operative in Computer World as a very cheap and efficient way of recording voice. I bought it with two speakers so that i could record and play something on a loop to accompany an installation artwork.
I admit that I am not technical - but I have looked at the paltry GB Quick Start Guide and fiddled about - and talked like a mad thing into the microphone - but I can't get anything back!!
There is no sound whatsoever coming from the damn... (read more)

I hate it, I hate it, I hate it ....£24.99 I'd rather go back to the old school tape playing walkman than have to deal with the problems the Matsui 120MR MP3 Player And Recorder has given me, I hate it. It's temperamental, teasy as a crab at the best of times, constantly freezes this MP3 plug and play is pure and simple a big ball ache, its picky about what goes on it, and sometimes won't turn on and if it does it just keeps resetting its self.

Overall The Matsui 120MR is great (as someone else said) for a 5 or 6 time use (OK that's a little bit exaggerated).It'll probably get you by for about a month, two if you're lucky but in the long run, you're better off saving your money and buying something else that will last. (read more)

I use my MP3 player a lot, and don't believe the Matsui 120MR model is particularly hardy for lots of use, I would only recommend buying this if you just want one to use only two or three times as it doesn't last much more than that. (read more)

Mac User! So finding a player that is outside the iPod range is a problem. There appears to be a host of cheap MP3 machines around until you look if they are Mac compatible. A friend had a Matsui 120MR as a christmas present and was showing us the various features and I noticed in the devices handbook that it was 'plug and play' with OSX! and it is.
PC World have them for sale at £24.99 so a quick flash with the plastic and we have one. Very short user manual, not always a good thing. In... (read more)
