I traded up (way up) from a Motorola V180 to this phone. So far, I love most things about it. The music player is pretty well made, and it is easy to load songs using a microSD card adapter for my computer. It would have been nice if they had included a USB cable (and made the audio port 3.5mm instead of 2.5), but it's not essential. Using video converter software, I can convert my own movies into 3GP files that I can watch on the phone. The speaker is excellent for playing music, and actually better than my laptop. The battery life is pretty short when using the music player, but overall lasts about 3 days on standby.
