Can anybody recommend a good portable MP3 player for my child?


Date: 31 Aug 2016   Posted By: Paul Nicolas     Group: Computers & Smart Devices    Category: Accessories   

I am looking for a good pocket sized mp3 player for my 10 year old child. He should be able to listen to music, record some songs, transfer mp3 files from computer and that's all. I prefer one without video so that he won't waste time watching videos and playing games.

I shortlisted Sony NWZ-B183F Walkman MP3 Player. Is that a good one? It has good reviews in Amazon but I am still not fully convinced.
