MPIO FL500 (512MB)


The FL500 offers analog style for the digital generation, but its keys, knobs and dials failed to push our buttons.

Long battery life ; Lightweight ; Distinctive look

Ultra-budget earbuds ; Illogical button configuration ; Display is too small

The FL500 is best suited to those who want to turn on, tune in and drop out; that is, people who will spend long stretches listening to the radio or a list of files without needing to press any buttons. The guitar-garnered styling is certainly...

MPIO FL500 (2GB)


Despite the not so good cnet evaluation, this is one of my favorite players. It's small, fit in any pocket and has a resistant metal clip so it can be attached to your cloth. Most of all, it can play OGG files, so by auto-converting files to ogg when...

Small size, long life battery, plays OGG files

Takes some time to get used to Play/Pause button (difficult to depress)

I've seen A LOT better.

Nice shape. Belt clip was great. Display was also good. Easy switch between operations (MP3,FM,REC)

Idono if the one I bought was fulty, but it had tech issues. I tried to transfer a whole bunch of songs, about 977 MB if yo uneeded to know. Then I disconnect and check my MP3 player, and even though it says that 977 MB is being used, half of my songs...

Almost a good player.

Good price. Nice look. Lots of useful features

Didnt work right out of the box. Freezes after 1 or 2 songs and has to be reset. Structure of the product is poor

The second, and last, MPIO I've bought and had to return.

Worked fine for a whole eight hours

The multi-function button was so sensitive, every time I tried to pause a track, it FF'd to the next one. The volume dial was so loose it was almost falling off. The body didn't fit together properly and the display light was visible through the...
