Philips Key Ring Key014 (256MB)


Last year, Philips introduced its Key Ring line of plug-in MP3 players. The keychain-size devices offered the ultimate in portability but lacked LCDs and came in only 64MB and 128MB capacities. Philips made some improvements for the new Key014. Like...

The Key014 plugs into just about any computer via a built-in USB interface, so you can upload and download your music and data without a cable. And you won't need to install drivers on post-2000 operating systems. The design is perfect for in-flight...

There's still no memory-expansion slot.

If you want an ultracompact MP3 player that can easily withstand daily use and abuse, the Philips Key Ring Key014 might be perfect for you. Keep checking this page for our full review.
