I think it is badly designed: If I leave my AJB R in my bag, the power switch will get pressed by something and it will go on, wasting batterys. It crashes LOADS (an Unexceptable amount, but hopefuly new batterys will help. My current ones are screwed up), and pressing the 2 side in causes it to reset.
If it wasn't for Rockbox, i'd be really unhappy with it.
