There were a couple of "sample files" on my recorder when I
bought it, but it sounds like yours had a bit more than just
It may have been a returned item, or someone working in the
store may have tried it out to see how it worked. Usually,
CompUSA discounts returned items, so if it was slightly used
and you paid full price you did get slightly ripped off, IMHO.
I got $25 off my Recorder at Best Buy because it was a return.
If the player is in good physical shape, it doesn't really
matter all that much, except in principle. You could go back
to the store and talk to the manager if it's bothering you.
Keep it calm; just say you think it was an open box, and see
what he/she does. You could always just return it, but if you
give them a hard time they might charge you a restocking fee
on the return, so don't get angry.
