Cool Review - Rio 800
There are two main qualities people look
for in an MP3 player: ease of use and available memory. The
Rio 800 128 MB Digital Audio Player excels in both areas.
Compatible for the both the Mac and PC, the Rio
800 uses the program Sound Jam to manage its files. In just
a few clicks you can either load your existing MP3 files or
quickly make your own from your favorite CDs. Loading an MP3
onto the player takes just seconds. You can arrange them in
whatever order you want and easily add and remove whenever
The player itself has very simple controls. The
buttons are indented so you don't have to worry about accidentally
hitting one while keeping the player in your pocket. The buttons
are on the small side but once you get used to them, you can
easily skip through tracks without looking.
128 MB of room, there is plenty of space on the player. How
many songs you can fit will vary, but we were able to get
26 tracks loaded up. That's plenty of music to have along
for a jog through the park or a trip to the gym.
So while some may find it pricey at $299, youll
find the extra memory over the smaller players well worth
it. If youre in the market for a 128 MB MP3 player,
you cant go wrong with a this Rio 800 player.
