Trust me, it works great, but you have to stay subscribed and if you have Rhapsody to go, plug in at least once every thirty days, otherwise the music will not play. Your device will give you a warning a few days before you need to plug in, I usually avoid the warning by charging my mp3 player from the PC. Just remember your mp3 player has to be compatable, if you go to the website, they have a list of compatable devices.

I use Rhapsody and I really do like it. I guess the only problem I have is pay monthly for music but other that that its great. And yes once you unsuscribe you will lose your music.

that's why I prefer Pandora. You don't get to pick specific tracks and albums, but it does a pretty darn good job at giving me music I like.

The only thing with Pandora is you have to be on a mobile network or a wifi system to use it. Right? With Rhapsody I have it on my ipod and i can ride with all the music I selected and not have to be on neither a wifi or mobile network.

okay if its only good while you pay monhly,lets say I download 1000 songs from iTunes for 1.29 each,thats 1290 bucks,and I keep the songs as long as I want,now 14.95 a month,or that equals 86.2 months if using same on rhapsody,so in seven years I have music that will drsappear or I get to keep,in the long run im not sure what to think,i don't like to feel like im leasing music nor do I see myself downloading 1000 songs right away but in seven years a guy could defiantely get a lot downloaded,i think im going with iTunes.we don't have Pandora in Canada and honestly Sirius/xm radio gets borig the more you listen to it,i got it in my new truck and let it expire.in the end I have something to show for.

Another reason I use Rhapsody is because my wife and I don't always like the same music, so lets say hypothetically I have 1000 songs, and she has 1000 songs, since we have two different devices I can have all the music on one pc, but only what I want on my device, not to mention I'm sure my daughter has a lot of music I don't care for,lol. So lets make that 3000 songs. And I'm still paying the same, so it is leasing music, but if you have up to 3 users, it's cheaper for a long time.
BTW I just checked, I have over 1600 songs in my library, I categorize the play list to what kind of music I want at any given time.

I personally have not used rhapsody, but I've used spotify for the last 2.5 years, and love it. They're "extreme" quality downloads are very good quality. I use it on my iPod touch and listen to it on my Harley using the hand controls all the time. It is a similar concept to rhapsody as you are leasing the music as well, I believe it caps at 3,000 songs and runs about 7 or 8 bucks a month.
