Philips Micro Jukebox HDD060

 

Resembling an iPod in colour and style, this mini hard drive-based MP3 player lands way off the mark in terms of design, features, and performance.

Compact and stylish ; Functions as an external drive

Pricey ; Cluttered display ; Slow menu navigation ; Doesn't play copy-protected WMA files ; Poor bundled software ; Slow transfer speeds ; No resume function
