Ordered this for mother whom has vision problems and I charged and put an 8Gb card in it and placed many hours of classic hymns she wanted on it plus some sermon series. Easy to set-up BUT I only have two complaints and a third, of which I knew by reviews that the earphones that came were of really poor quality, so ordered really nice ones elsewhere for he and reviews are correct--the earphones that come with it are of really low quality on a not-so-inexpensive product. I love the NowBible and she does as well but here are my negatives:1) The instruction manual is small and the tiniest font I have ever seen, which makes absolutely no sense on a device that's geared to HELP those read, listen, and USE with limited eyesight...not even available as a pdf download on NowBible website; 2)the stylus should be one that is telescoptic/pull out to make utilitarian because it is no more than 3 1/2 inches long and although you CAN use your fingernail to tap in many places, there's still some things that you really need to be accurate in tapping with a stylus. it's a great device but for this price, why go cheapo on a manual that a person with great vision literally needs a magnifying glass to read and a stylus made for a child's hand? The stylus is so small indeed that the extra one they include somehow got lost upon her taking it out of packaging. I ordered a new spare stylus and the silicon protector made for it from nowBible.com to give extra protection as do not think it would survive a fall on hard surface. Again, it's a great device but it's high time USA starts manufacturing quality items here rather than China because cutting corners in all the wrong places makes no sense. Really glad my mom loves it and is now using it on her walks, exercising, and when she cannot sleep but does not want to disturb my dad's sleep. Trust me, you will love this device but plan on purchasing better earbuds and the speaker is of really great volume and ability to make font extra large and the words of Christ in red are great features.

I love it. It plays the Bible or my music through my car radio.
It has room for pictures, videos, ebooks, etc. It is not a phone or camera but I didin't want that. Read the manual!

I was very happy to get this product and wish I had done so earlier! It is easy to use and has so many great features. I am still discovering all of the things I can do with it, but I mainly got it just to listen to the Word of God when going about my day to day tasks. It's great!

I just love the ease in using and carrying the Now Bible. The Bible reading plan makes it easy to either read or listen to scripture. The MP3 player is wonderful! I am so glad I received this Bible. I have recommended to several friends who have made the purchase.

I absolutely love my new electronic Bible. It is so handy and easy to use, and the man who reads the Scriptures is so easy to listen to. . .he makes the verses come to life. For me, it makes reading my Bible more manageable. . .being one who does NOT enjoy reading!!! I just love it!!!

I enjoy this devise when sitting down (not walking or driving) but it does have some disappointing design features-Pros -Good screen upgrade from those on the market-can see all print with clarity -Can find scripture with this clarity of the screen, but takes and extra step or two from programs that I have used on the computer -first devise on market with audio and print synced together while playing -if sitting down (not walking or driving) best small devise on marketCons-difficult to find last verse if devise is shut off-or accidently touch wrong button-buttons can be mistaken easily, making it frustrating to find last verse if you are walking or driving. Also, buttons do not have light-compounding this problem at night.-because of this-even with the superior screen, I have had to go back to other devises to use while driving or walking-disappointing because of their poor screen quality.-if screen menu was designed a little differently, could use screen easily with fingers, and not need a stylist-several computer glitches were in the devise-out of the box-from the information given, these can be fixed by downloads or DVD in the packageOverall, I would purchase this devise to have while at a desk-having an extra tool for the Word of God. Unfortunately, it cannot replace my other MP3 Bible with the inferior screen while driving or walking because of the difficulty in navigation-and need of a stylist.

PDA required some technical attention which was provided by manufacturer tech. Now, this PDA performs excellent and provides all the listed features. Very simple to use once you get familiar with it. Narration is excellent and text features outstanding. Christianbook.com also provided excellent support and ready to exchange unit if it would not function properly. Thanks for an excellent product.
