AGPTek mp3 player?

Anyone familiar AGPTek mp3 players, and how well they work with audiobooks? I'm seeing two that look like Sansa players: a $26 one that seems similar to the Clip+ but promises 30 hours of battery life, and a $29 one that looks like a version of the Clip Zip and offers 24 hours of battery life.

I'm really tempted to try the Clip Zip look-alike. There are some limitations (no Audible support, possible incompatibility with SanDisk mSDHC cards) but they don't matter to me; I like that the controls seem to be what I'm used to on the Sansas and I like the supposed long battery life.

I don't know anything about the brand. Fakespot gives the company a C rating and a D rating for both devices. If it were me, I'd steer clear of these two players.

For the first player:

Quote:
There are indications of inauthentic/low quality reviews, you be the judge.

Our engine has analyzed and discovered that there are 43.7% low quality reviews detected.

Our engine has profiled the reviewer patterns and has determined that there may be deception involved.

Our engine has determined that the review content quality is low.
...and the second player:

Quote:

Our engine has analyzed and discovered that there are 52.4% low quality reviews detected.

Our engine has profiled the reviewer patterns and has determined that there is high deception involved.

How's the other one working out? Like I said above, I usually stay away from these brands, because I'm not willing to take a gamble with them.

I had seen that fake rating site, but I also saw a number of posts in mp3 player forums that were positive. But they were more concerned with music, not audiobooks.

Silverraven, I very much look forward to your review!

My review got way too long to post here. I really tried to break everything down, comparing each to the Clip+ the Zip, and each other.
Let me know if you have any issues accessing it. Hope it answered everyone's questions.
Sorry it got so long!

Thanks for the reviews. I've added them to the Media Players 2016 post in the "Black Friday - Tablets, eReaders, Media Players - 2016" thread.

Great! Thank you so much for taking the time to post the reviews. I was waiting for your comments before ordering.

You've pushed me over the edge, I'm going to take a chance on the Bluetooth version, even though I don't need Bluetooth for audiobooks; if it works well I'll use it for music too.

Thanks again!

Let me know if you like it. I really hope you do! And how the Bluetooth works. I have one of their other models that has Bluetooth. I've never had an issue with the Bluetooth part of it. It doesn't have a dedicated volume button, which annoys the crud out of me, so I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. But, the battery life is great on it. I only use it for overnight listening, so I set the volume at one place and leave it. I have insomnia and use familiar audiobooks over and over to lull me back to sleep. Figure it's cheaper than Ambien!!
Wish I had seen the one with Bluetooth before I ordered.

It should be in my paws on Thursday. I'm excited to get it; I really didn't want to buy another yucky Clip Sport or jury-rig a new clip on the back of mine.

Yes, you could just point to your review at the above location. However, you could also put your review in the wiki itself making it easier to maintain and making it accessible to all MobileRead users that know about our wiki. click on help in the left column to a short introduction if you are not familiar with wiki syntax. The source files are compatible with what you see in wikipedia. We use the same engine.

Hello people!

those of you who have ordered the AGPTek mp3 player, could you tell how it manages audiobooks in multiple files? They are a nightmare on my sansa jam.

Thanks!
