I am upgrading (or maybe downgrading ) from e260 to Connect. I didn’t want to spend
too much $ on a player just for gym, if not I woulda gone the Zune 80g or Ipod Itouch. But
I wanted to take advantage of the Yahoo Unlimited to Go (I have used Rhapsody to Go
before with the 260).
I noticed a bit of klunkiness with the program, I was seeing lot of disconnect from the Yahoo
program and had to login back, then I realized that it had something to do with Trillian using
the Yahoo messenger, so I stopped using Trillian while Yahoo program is running.
So my question is that why is there an upgrade on the program and when you actually click
on it, it is asking you to upgrade to the unlimited program for PC, that’s very confusing,
since the To Go subscription is actually more expensive than the unlimited for PC. Why
don’t they just get rid of it in the menu when you login to your To Go account, so people
do not by mistake also sign up for the unlimited for PC (because the unlimited to go allows
you to get music for PC anyways), so thought to point this out.
Overall the product isn’t too bad, the price is right $99 for the player, but the subscription could
be a bit cheaper (but not bad considering it’s the price of a CD), I think the Connect is a bit
cheaper in design than the e200 series. But the Wifi is pretty nice, though I wish they had left
the regular radio on the device. I played a little bit with the brightness and you gain a little bit
on the playing side time. Though wondering, how many times can you charge and use the
battery before having to replace it (also how much does it cost to get a new battery ?)
as far as the microSD slot, does it accept the microSDHC with the latest firmware ? if so
is it possible to drag and drop music from Yahoo to it (DRM or non DRM?)
