NEON 4in1 128MB MP3 Player - Page 1
During the past year, the gadget market has been swarmed with small-size memory devices that can be used for a multitude of purposes: playback/record audio, store/exchange data, listen to radio. Memory sizes initially were small, but as memory technology progresses we can see today such devices produced with capacities reaching up to the order of a gigabyte. Many devices exist in the market today that combine many of the features mentioned above. One of these devices is the NEON 4 in 1 MP3 Player from Neon-Drives that arrived in our labs for review.
With dimensions of 80 x 30 x 24 mm, a weight of around 50 grams, and given it's oval shape, the Neon MP3 Player is a small device that can easily pop in your pocket, hang on your keychain, or by using the included necklace earphones, hang around your neck. The player provides more than 4 hours of music listening, and can reproduce files encoded in the MP3 format.
The two-line multi-line graphic display with background lighting provides ID3-tag information. New music files can easily be copied to the player without using any special software. The player is recognized automatically as a removable device by recent versions of Windows OS (2000/XP), and you can use it immediately from the moment you plug it in. The Neon 4 in 1 MP3 Player can also be used as a recording device, allowing more than 4 hours of voice recording.
