Amazon MP3s only provided at inferior 256kbps bit rate

Be aware that Amazon MP3s are only provided in the less than practically optimal 256kbps bit rates. Insist on your MP3s being at the 320kbps bit rate (Google & Bandcamp provide this, to name a few). There is a noticeable difference in the sound richness and quality. Amazon's MP3s at 256kbps lack the sound richness and depth of the same song provided at the optimal 320kbps. Amazon says that 320kbps songs take up more space -- true, but it is well worth the difference. Sounds like Amazon is only interested in saving themselves cloud space. Buyer beware...

In summary, I would not recommend Amazon MP3 to a friend.

Amazon is great for books, not so great for MP3 downloads.

I like this site because I already have an Amazon account, like most of us do these days. After installing the Download Manager it is a fairly simple task to buy and download a single MP3 or album. Watch out trying to buy multiple mp3's using a shopping cart because it is impossible to do. I tried to figure this out for nearly half an hour before calling customer support to learn that this is something Amazon is very aware of and apologizes for the inconvenience. I love to use Amazon to buy books, clothing, electronics, and recently to stream movies. But for now, it is far from a polished mp3 download site.

In summary, I would recommend Amazon MP3 to a friend.
