MSI Megastick 1 Review


While they lack the extra polish we like to see to make a common product like a digital audio player stand out amongst the rest, both of the MSI Megastick MP3 players are good solid products for their price.

FM tuner ; recognized as external drive ; voice recording ; good features at reasonable price

Only comes with necklace style headphones ; could use a little refinement
