Expert review by:

Aiwa HZ-WS2000 (1.5GB)


With a skinny profile that would make an anorexic model go positively green with envy, does the Aiwa HZ-WS2000 have the mean to match the lean?

USB 2.0; slick and thin profile; remote control included

No display on main unit; menu controls located only on remote; silver finish prone to smudges

A player with a minimalist form factor, the Aiwa HZ-WS2000 is one of the tiniest microdrive players on the market that would score big with the fashion crowd.

It seems that MP3 players have been on the Atkins diet over the summer, the latest one to break out of rehab is the Aiwa HZWS2000.
