-When you bought your MP3 player, what helped you decide which one to purchase; what criteria did you use, if any, to make your judgment?
It was my brother's MP3 player first, he bought it and used it for a few years, until he got a new mobile phone and later on an Ipod. He chose this Xen because the sound quality is excellent and because the casing alluminium casing is very sturdy. This MP3-player is just about the only music-player that has survived my brother's use.
