MobiBlu US2

 

The slim, metal-bodied US2 offers high-quality sound at a low price.

Dual headphone jacks Built-in radio with scheduled recording

Controls are a bit clunky, Can't display album cover art

The MobiBlu US2 looks good and performs well. If you can master the controls and want an FM tuner, the unit is worth considering as a more affordable alternative to the iPod Nano

MobiBlu US2 (2GB, silver)

 

MobiBlu and its family of Cubes (including the recently reviewed Cube2) has stolen some of the limelight from its Korean brethren: iRiver, Samsung, and Cowon. And still MobiBlu claims the world's longest-lasting MP3 player, the B153. Now, the company...

MobiBlu's stylish and wearable US2 is slim and lightweight; features photo and video playback plus FM/voice recording; OGG and subscription WMA support; two headphone jacks; preloaded PodcastReady software; MTP and MSC USB modes

The US2 has a couple of interface missteps; non-standard USB; not supported by WMP11; mediocre screen colors; slight noise from left headphone jack; maxes out at 2GB

MobiBlu's wearable US2 is sleek and feature packed, but the user interface isn't very sophisticated.

I have had the unit since 12/06 and have not been able to use it yet. They absolutely have the WORST customer service I have ever dealt with. I have e-mailed them continuously with no response. I have tried calling them & I get "this voicemail is...
