The good: Sporty, splashproof design; excellent battery life; includes fitness-friendly extras such as a stopwatch, a calorie counter, and a pulse-rate monitor; supports DRM-protected WMA files.
The bad: Clunky and slow interface; difficult for single-handed use.
The bottom line: Although it's packed with useful, fitness-oriented features, the RCA Lyra RD2212 is disappointing overall, thanks to a flawed design.

Summary: i got mine from kmart on sale for $27 so i can't complain about it at all. I'll keep it for a little while and give it to my son and then buy a ipod maybe my hubby has one and now it's starting to freeze when he tries to update it. So for the price it was a great deal!!

Summary: I purchased this for my 14 yr. old son for Christmas. The price was good, (about 65.00 at Target), and the amount of storage was better than those priced similarly. Its a fairly decent player, except for when trying to navigate through files, the single toggle button is clumsy. The bulky clip that covers the battery compartment is difficult to remove/install, and thus is now broken off, and the earphones that came with it are awkward, (they've been replaced), to say the least. One size definitely doesn't fit all. Upon installing the software thats included, the Lyra Jukebox doesn't appear to be compatible with iTunes. (At least I haven't been able to move songs from iTunes to it, so he's been using realplayer to upload his files). On the plus side, the sound quality is great, it only requires 1 AA battery that lasts for well over 50 hours, and the pulse meter/calorie counter/pedometer is a nice feature too. All in all, I agree with the first comment in saying that you get what you pay for. Its not a bad player if you have a lot of patience.
