Insignia Pilot with Bluetooth (4GB)


Somewhat surprisingly, Best Buy's own Insignia brand of MP3 players has gained quite a bit of popularity among consumers lately. That's not to say that the devices aren't good (quite the opposite, actually), but in this image-conscious market, "cheap"...

The Insignia Pilot is an incredible value for a media player, and it's packed with features: Bluetooth, FM radio, line-in recording, photo and video support, and Rhapsody DNA Integration. It plays back a wide variety of audio formats and is compatible...

The Insignia Pilot's sound quality is only so-so, and it's on the large side for a flash player

The Insignia Pilot won't please audio purists, but it's a great option for feature hounds who appreciate a good value--and the ability to listen to music sans wires.

My Favorite


My favorite player, better than most ipods (not nano, iTouch or iPhone, of course) Updated on Sep 15, 2008

I love the line in, the FM Radio with savable track info, support for video and pics, FM recording, bookmarking, ratings,and the very light weight

the pics and video quality kinda sucks

Consumer review by:

i thought this was a good buy but when i purchased three and all the screens cracked and you don't see it until you turn it on. i could understand it if it was one but all three, bought 2 8gb and two 4gb

price, thought this was a good buy

screen cracked on not one but three while charging

Surprise! It is fast!


This thing is great! I bought the 4GB model as I have a 16 GB SDHC card! Movies are great. Music is simple to find. I have only owned for a week and already have put my iRiver Clix on the auction block. (I no longer have to double click to get the...

Simple operation

Scroll can lead to inadvertant click

The player is amazing!!!


This is one of the best mp3 players I've used in a while. It has many features that most people would use like FM radio,Mp4/WMA/AVI player, line in record, and the main reason why I bought it: SD expandable memory. I mostly use bluetooth while using...

freeze on bluetooth sometimes(rarely)

Exceptional Quality for the price


I was considering MP3 players when I saw the eight GB for $100. I thought it was worth it, but when I received it, I thought there was a mistake. It was too good for the price. The only other MP3 player even close to as good as this is the more...

Easy to use, Good enough Sound Quality, TONS of features

Doesn't Have a touch screen, but that would be pushing it

Everything You could want


This player does everything at a very low price.(my refurb* pilot from ebay just had a damaged box so it may as well be new.) I have owned the player 4 months now and had basicly no problems There have been comments about poor audio quality but I don't...

features and price, I got mine for $60 on ebay

no other colors, records in wma instead of mp3

Consumer review by:

A fine, inexpensive player


I bought this player mostly for listening to talk radio shows that I download commercial-free (podcast). Then I plug the player into a little FM transmitter in the car and listen through the car stereo. The talk radio MP3s I play are 38 minutes long...

File formats, ease of navigation, storage capacity

Their software hijacked my extensions, purchasing experience

Great player for a great price


"I've been using this player for a couple months now and really enjoy using it. I got the Insignia Bluetooth headphones with it and while I was very impressed with the sound quality over Bluetooth, the wrap around style of the headphones doesn't fit me...

Great bluetooth functionality, light, great screen

Compatible headphones don't fit well
