This is the best

 

I got one of these as a "gift" to justify my husband getting one for himself. After I got over the sticker shock and started using it, its now my favorite music accessory.

Storage space, size

no upload transfer from PJ to computer

Best MP3 Hardware Ever!!

 

The HanGo PJB-100 is one of the coolest and most sensible MP3 hardware devices I have ever seen. It stores more than 75 hours of MP3s, or about 1,150 songs using its 4.86GB storage capacity.

Lots of storage

none

Ultimate MP3 player

 

I thought about buying this product for a long time before I did. The price is NOT cheap.

Huge drive, long lasting battery

Expensive, takes a long time to fill it

Consumer review by:

Good, But NOT Great

 

I bought my PJBox when it first jumped to 6 Gigs. The price was high, but I felt that it was worth it, based on the price/storage ratio.

simple controls, long battery life, lots of storage

lousy customer service, horrible software interface and audio organization tools, crappy website

You like music? You will like this!

 

No matter what kind of music you listen too, you will love this MP3 player. This Mp3 player is almost the same as the Creative labs nomad II, or the creative labs jukebox. One major thing, however, seperates these two products; six gigs of space....

Very clear, crisp, 6 gigs

Upon further review....

 

I've owned mine for about 6 weeks. I bought it because it has MAJOR capacity; I don't want to mess with constantly going back to my computer, designing new playlists, and transferring new music...blowing away the old. With this product, you just...

Great hardware and unbelievable capacity

Inconvenient and somewhat unstable software
