MPIO HD300 (20GB)

 

The feature-rich MPIO HD300 performs well, but its touch-sensitive controller can be irksome enough to scare away users.

Excellent sound and recording quality ; Sleek stainless-steel casing ; FM, voice, and line-in recordings ; OGG support

Touch-sensitive slider makes for tedious scrolling ; Auto FM presets misses too many strong signals ; Doesn't support DRM-protected WMA files

Tries to be an iPod competitor, unsuccessfully

 

I received the Mpio HD-300 as a gift, primarily because it was not an iPod, and the hope was that it was better than the mainstream product. It, unfortunately, was not. Oh, sure, there are some great features about the product, but a number of ...

Some neat features, radio, nice design.

Nice design does not always make up for lackluster functionality.

Not a bad 1st generation product, but flawed

 

All in all, the MPIO HD300 is a pretty good player. When looking at it on paper, it seems unstoppable. FM Tuner, Line-in recording, same size/weight as an IPOD, good looking, great sound quality, external hard drive functionality. It definitely has ...

FM Tuner, Line-in recording, same size as IPOD, pretty, great sound quality, external HD

Slow menus, bad scrolling, no documentation or support, pained playlist creation

MPIO HD 300 needs better documentation

 

Design, touch pad, sound, recording capabilities, price, appears as hard-drive.

Documentation really not ready for the impatient or inexperienced. Too sensitive touch-pad.
