I had a different MP3 player before I bought this device, and I didn't like it, so I sold it to search for something new, and came across the riptunes. I love how easy it is to load music into, and it is compatible with allot of software, as where other MP3 players usually aren't.I don't know why people are saying such bad reviews such as: "it won't turn on without being plugged in to my PC." This is not true! To turn it on you have to turn the switch to 'on' but you also have to hold down the menu button until the screen comes on. People seem to be missing this vital piece of information. Anyway. I love this product! The cons are, it has a touch screen that requires a stylus, and sometimes it doesn't press right with the small stylus that they give you. So I bought a new set of styluses that weren't meant for riptunes specifically, and it worked just fine. Another con, is that I don't know what video format it holds, I tried two different formats and it didn't play either of them, but I'm sure you could find some sort of format converter to change the format of your videos to fit it somehow. It has no internet access, so don't buy it expecting it to. It does have a camera, but the resolution isn't very good. (I learned to look past that, since my last MP3 player that actually had cost more, didn't have a camera at all. Don't look a gifted horse in the mouth as I always say.)I haven't tried anything with the E books yet, so I'm not sure how that works.It seems to have a pretty good charge life. So that's good…Over all I would say this is a wonderful product! It has some pros and cons, but doesn't everything? Life would be nothing without controversy. I hope this review was helpful.

I hate to say it but all the bad reviews are right on this product. Most of the time I think some people expect way to much out of an item and rate it badly but this time I know why its rated with such bad reviews. Im wanting to get my daughter an MP3 player for Christmas and thought she would definately love this one. I bought it in store took it home and opened it up right away. Its fairy easy to turn on and it goes striaght to calibrating the touch screen. Which is the worst calibration I've ever seen. It goes to the menu after that. I wanted to make sure all functions are working properly before I see if it can download music properly so I go to camera funtion. Hardly any of the buttons would work. The only one I could get to do anything was the picture button. It has a return to menu button but that didnt work so I had to shut it off to go to the menu. I tried to recalibrate it before I did anything else and it still didnt help. I don't know how the actual MP3 part of the item works but I'd say if the screen is that hard to work then it really doesnt matter. I normally dont write reviews unless the item is really good and has received alot of bad reviews or the item is extremely bad and I feel it shouldnt even be sold. In my opinion this item needs to be discontinued and you should save up for a used Ipod.

Comments about Riptunes 8GB Touch MP3 Player with Video - Pink:
I bought this for my 6 year olds Birthday. I wanted to make sure she is able to use easily and take care of it before eventually getting something more expensive I.E. A phone etc. The touch screen part she loves. Very easy to put music on. Overall great product. The earphones that come with it were horrible. Right away one side of the ear buds didn't work or output sound.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Bought this for my daughter for her birthday...charged it and powered it on. It was played with for a few minutes and then shut off. I went and bought an expensive micro card and was preparing to download music....now it won't power on! I wish I'd read the reviews before I wasted my time and money.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

It won't even turn on! I charged it completely and I took it off the charger and played with a while and shut it off and I couldn't even get it to come back on. I only played with it for 10 minutes!!!!!! It is not AWESOME, I am telling you. DONT BUY IT!!!!!!

such a waste....
After charging, unit does not power on consistently. Synced music, but does not play. Wish I could do zero stars.
from palm springs, california
Not worth the money at all. It has the cheapest plastic casing, a frustrating screen, and doesn't charge right. The radio doesn't receive many stations nor does it sound good. very frustrating to use. Everything about this product is very cheaply made. I would pay $10 for this! Not a penny more. I will be returning my product.

DO NOT BUY THIS ITEM!!!
from Milton, FL
I purchased this for my 6 year old niece for Christmas thinking it was a cheap alternative to an ipod. I spent approximately 2 hours trying to set the thing up and using the "touch screen" to navigate the player. Basically it is a worthless product. Not user friendly and definitely a frustrating touch screen!! I can't think of anything positive except it was a nice pink color :). Please don't waste your money on this product!! I wound up purchasing a cheaper mp3 player which worked much better than this!!
Cheaply Made and Doesn't Work

About Me Audiophile, Gear Head
I purchased this as a gift for my 8 year old daughter. The very first thing I noticed about this player is that it feels cheap. Very lightweight plastic and cheap little buttons. The price wasn't cheap. It may not cost as much as an ipod, but it was substantially more than the quality of the device should demand. I followed the directions that stated to charge the device for 5 hours before using. After charging, I proceeded to turn on the device. The menu screen did turn on, but not for long. The device kept shutting off and going back to the charging screen. It almost seems like the USB cable or USB jack on the device is faulty because when I physically moved the device while it was plugged into the computer, it kept switching from "Device Found" to "No Device". My USB ports on my PC work just fine with all my other devices. To top things off, it won't work at all now. No charging screen, no menu screen, nothing. I didn't even have a chance to add any music to it or test out the other features. I will be returning it for a replacement. I should request a refund but I guess I'll take the chance that we just got a defective one. My daughter was really excited to get it so we're kind of stuck with giving RipTunes a second chance. If you're looking to buy one, you may want to revisit your options.
