Here (http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/5134218/Trail/C%24cip%3D42492.Sound%2Band%2Bvision%3EC%24cip%3D4 2544.MP3%2Bplayers%3EC%24cip%3D42547.MP3%2Bplayers %2Bwith%2Bportable%2Bsolid%2Bstate.htm) is an 1GB MP3/WMA player that is being sold for less than 25. Suffice to say it is within the price range I am willing to stretch.

Idisgo Lite. Never heard of them. A month or so ago I bought an MP3 player that was made by some company I hadn't heard of and I had to get my money back because it didn't work. So my question is this: Is this a reliable company?

Note: Let me know if I shouldn't post that link and I'll remove it. :)

To be honest, I've never heard of Idisgo Lite. The photo on that website looks like a normal stand alone MP3. £25 - You get what you pay for really. My brother has an MP3 that looks like that. All you do is connect it and drag songs. Easy. For the price, I would certainly buy it. :)

I've had a look around that website and I would sure by a branded MP3 player as it's branded. There's a Philips 1GB Black MP3 Player here for under £30. Might as well have a look at it. Link.

Or, if you've got enough money (say £55), why don't you purchase the iPod shuffle? 1GB, cheap and cheerful. Although, sound problems have occur in this device and it has no screen (hence the shuffle).

My best guess is to purchase the Philips MP3 Player. It looks OK and it has half price speaker dock too. ;)

Another thing, Google that there Company and see if it has good reviews on there products. That why you can tell if its a good product or a bad product. Either way, it's up to you. :tmb:

Go for it, but keep hold of that receipt. Unusually cheap devices are often cheap for a reason (poor quality materials, bad workmanship, cheap unreliable components, etc).

If it works, then awsome. A bargain. :)

I'll give it a shot.

The MP3 player I bought (and had to send back) previously was not in good condition though. I can't remember the name of the brand, but there were all sorts of faults, physical and internal — the background light was faulty, the headphone socket was wonky so the headphones didn't plug in properly and you kept getting buzzes and pops as you listened as it knocked about, and many features did not function properly. I also noticed that the 'lid' for the USB port was damaged slightly.
