iPodなどのソフトが必要あるプレヤーを使いたくないから、プレヤーとして使える普通のヴォイスレコーダーを色々見てみたら、これがいいかなと思った。見なくても、操作が出来るからかなり便利で、音がいいし、もちろんレコーダーとして疲れるし、大満足。CDを読みこんだら、それぞれのアルバムの為のフォルダーを作って、プレイリストも、プレイリストのフォルダーを作って、簡単にファイろをドラッグアンドドロップするだけで出来上がり。めんどくさいiPodやiTunesより１００倍ぐらいいいこれ！ 気に入って、２台も買った！！Having had enough of stupid and annoying iTunes (and, for that matter, my difficult to use and annoying iPod Classic), I wanted to find something easier to use as a player and looked at quite a lot of IC recorders before deciding to give this cool, player-resembling item a go. All the buttons are right there, no touch screen rubbish, so it's easy to use even without looking at it. The sound is great and, of course, you can use it as a recorder too. Rip a CD, create a folder for each album, and that's it! You can create play lists by dragging and dropping favorite songs into a folder for the purpose, and that's it!! No stupid software telling you what you can and can't do, no annoying dial that you can't operate without putting your whole life on hold! Normally I don't like Sony (not much different from Apple really; they both think the sun shines out of their nether regions), but I like this device a LOT. In fact, I bought two.
