Good but not great – USB 4-in-1 MP3 Pen with Voice Recorder and FM Radio Direct USB/AC Charged Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Excellent voice recording quality. Decent FM radio reception and MP3 sound quality (usually - see cons).
Cons:
1) Slow file transfer speed (USB 1?) so it takes a long time to load even a little music.

2) Headphone jack smaller than typical iPod/MP3 player style, so I can't use my favorite phones. May be difficult to get replacements if needed.

3) MP3 playback had scrambled sound intermittently.

4) Tricky instructions printed very, very small type and hard to read. Easy enough to use once you figure them out.
Other:
Though packaged as new, item had some music and voice files on it. This might have been a used/returned product.

Bottomline:
I bought it mainly for the voice recorder, all the other features are bonus. Since the voice recording works very well, I don't really ming the problems I noticed.
