Advantages: Good lucks and user-friendliness.
Disadvantages: Not rechargeable, small memory capacity!
I remember when all MP3 devices were simple and in many cases, smaller than they appear to be today. They all had small screens which weren't touch sensitive, and they all had small plastic buttons built into their plastic casings usually located on the sides of the device. This 'iDisgo MP507 1GB' takes me back to the old MP3 models we were once used to. It is a small, rubber covered plastic device with a very small (but practical) LCD display used to trawl through the different music and sound files located within the MP3 players memory.
With just 1 GB of internal memory, this seems extremely small in comparison with newer more advanced players readily available on the market. There is no hope of increasing the memory because you can't attach additional SD cards, Micro-SD cards, memory cards or USB devices to increase it. The device is as it is and this is a major disadvantage to the product. The player only supports two formats as well: MP3 and WMA files (probably the most commonly used).
Perhaps the only attribute to this player which is still widely accepted and utilised within more modern products is the USB connectivity it has. USB 2.0 is still going strong, and that is exactly how thisplayer connects to a PC or Mac. Hidden beneath a protective cap which clicks into position well is the USB head which has a moderate speed, though it doesn't need much speed when only moving around 1 GB maximum of data.
Using the device is a simple process. All the necessary buttons are made apparent around the edge of the device, from volume controls to play, pause, stop and change track. The screen isn't big enough for the interface to allow you to look down various lists for your next track (like newer alternatives do), but the way it has been set up is good enough to do the job.
I like the look of the thing, and given its size, it is very portable. One disadvantage is the fact you can't recharge the product, it takes batteries (and one is included). The styling is good and it is easy to connect headphones/earphones via a normal sized jack on the side.
Summary: I'd get a newer design! plus this can still set you back about £20-40!
