Kubik Evo 8 GB
Advantages: Without doubt affordable, easy to use, light and good sound quality
Disadvantages: Not the best video player, basic compared to the Zens and the pods...
I was given this mp3 player from a girlfriend of mine some months ago, and it`s been a great gift and a good mp3 player, at least for basic needs and basic use. In the time of iPods and Zens and such, this Kubik fails to impress all that much, but as an mp3 player, it really isn`t a bad choice! Recently, I have used this Kubik mostly for when travelling with the bus or train, or when jogging and hiking, as it`s very light and small, and therefore also practical for bringing with you wherever you go... I am not however overly extatic about the design, as it`s white and pink color scheme is a bit too feminine and girlish for me, but then again, it`s the inside that counts, and my Kubik Evo plays my albums and tracks with good and balanced audio quality and is easy to use in every aspect of its features. For instance, when dragging music from my computer onto this mp3-player, I only click on my computer, then click on this device and start transferring tracks from my computer onto the player. This is very easy to do and you need not a fancy, complicated program downloaded to do this. I would therefore say that this is a great mp3-player for those finding the iPod stuff a bit too moddern and difficult to use, as this is very basic, standard and easy in every way.
If you wish, you can also listen to audio books and watch AVI video clips on this player, just make sure you don`t spend all of the 8 GB capacity on videos, as every clip takes up much more room than entire albums of music. The quality of watching video clips is not superb, but pretty good considering this was a player I only paid 34.99 for. Products from Apple and Zen are very expensive, and though this isn`t a perfect media player, it`s doing a very good job considering its reasonable price tag.
When fully charged, I can listen to music for about 15 hours before it needs to be recharged, and for my use, this is perfectly good enough.
Not perfection, but more than good enough.
Summary: A cheap player with good features still..
