Don't buy knock off MP3 players.

I went shopping the other day and on an impulse buy decided to buy a 160gb Classic iPod... Well I wish I had of done now. Instead I was talked out of it by my girlfriend (Last time I listen to her regarding technology) and bought possibly the worst excuse of a media player I've ever seen.

Behold the beast. Dubbed "LOGIK L8GBMP410 Multimedia Player"
See, it already sounds like mass produced Chinese rubbish.

I despise the PC World salesman that coaxed me into buying this.  "It's got 8GB of memory and a great battery life" were his words.  True, he never lied about that but  the LOGIK doesn't allow users to set up playlists and actually searches for music much like a skipping CD.  If I want to swap albums it takes a minute to load up the new album; this is very frustrating!!
Moral(s) of the day; don't trust girlfriend on technology advice, don't listen to PC World salesmen and don't buy knock off MP3 players.

  3. I don't bother with PC World. I'm pretty sure the only companies worth buying media players from are:

    Creative
    Apple (controversial)
    Cowon
    Sony
    Phillips

    and a few others.

  5. Ugh! Yeah That is not good at all.
    if I had to wait more than 3 seconds for a song to load from my MP3 player I would go insane!

    Good advice thank you :)

  8. You get what you pay for- oftentimes, spot on for the cheap end of the technology market.

  9. I'm really surprised he tried to get you to buy the crappy cheap knock off. He sounds like he's failed being a salesperson at the most fundamental level

  10. I'm surprised that they didn't try to sell you something more expensive. I do have an iPod touch, but I don't really bother with it. I just use my Android phone to music. I do remember buying an iPod clone off of ebay a few years ago though, it was equally as bad as you described.

  14. I actually think I was given this the other day and just put it down in my garage randomly because I knew someone made a mistake buying it for me.
    Haha, but I second that moral(s). haha.

    Oh and yeah, PC World has gone downhill these past few years.

  19. I took my droid and stuck a 32GB card in it... hello new mp3 player. There are some good apps on the market and it's sure a hell of a lot cheaper than buying a dedicated device
