Most of the buttons on the 885 are too flush and too difficult to find
quickly without looking most of the time.
Even when you "remember" where they should be, it's easy to find
yourself pushing the wrong one because they all feel the same.
I usually pushed the mute button when meaning to press volume up/down
for instance. You can remap buttons if this happens frequently of
course, but then they don't do what they say they're supposed to.
It looks and feels nice otherwise. Nice weight and shape to it.
These "annoyances" are fixed for the most part on the 200, but it has
some new ones as I pointed out in the other post.
