I've had it a couple years. The buttons are getting a wee bit wonky. But that might be from sleeping on it every night for almost two years!. If I pause/then turn off correctly it will remember my place. But, if I go into another book I don't think it will remember where I was in the other book. The battery is great, lasts a long time even after all this time. I've only used the bluetooth feature a couple times. It works fine.
http://www.head-fi.org/t/744865/the-...x02-dap-thread I found this thread before I bought my player. It has lots of information about the Ruzio/AGPtEK lines. Nice people on there too. I will say for the price I got it for and what I wanted it for the player works great. I don't know if the quality has improved over the last couple years. I will say the quality of the A12 or the GO5 is better.

Thank you for your opinion on the 06. I've been reading that thread indepth.

I'll see what decision I come up with in the coming days. Cheers.

I just had the weirdest thing happen on my AGPTek player. My practice has been to use only the internal memory; I add books as I am about to listen to them, and when I run out of space I delete a few of the oldest titles.

So today I needed to delete titles, and one of them wouldn't delete. The folder contents had somehow all become corrupted, and were showing subfolders and files with strings of symbols and dates like 2078 and 2056, and the main folder showed a size of over 60gb (the device is only 8gb). When I disconnected from the PC, the player was frozen but revived after I turned it off and on a few times.

Then the computer wouldn't recognize the device at all, nor would the files delete using the device's delete function. It would repeatedly freeze and have to be turned on and off. I finally had to reformat it, and that seems to have worked--the corrupt files are gone, thank goodness.

But what a crazy thing to have happen.

That is odd. I hope it was just a random occurrence and never happens again. Shoot, I've got 3 of them, I really hope it's not something that happens to all of them!!

It seems to be fine now, after formatting it. The freezing seemed to be caused by trying to delete the corrupt files; if I see anything like that again I'll just skip to the reformatting and not even try to delete.

No idea how the files got corrupted in the first place, maybe from removing the device from the computer before it was safe to do so. The original files on the computer are just fine.
