RCA H100 (4GB)

 

Review: On June 27, 2006, RCA introduced three new MP3 player models: the 4GB RCA H100 ($139) and the 6GB RCA H106 and H116 ($169). Available now, the players are a throwback to the basic color-free microdrive player of a couple of years ago, and they...

Basic and affordable 4GB or 6GB player; compact and comfortable design; works with WMA subscription and Audible tracks; ships with basic FM transmitter; screen easily viewable; supports UMS for driver-less transfers

Monochrome screen; no extra features such as an FM tuner, recording capabilities, or photo or album art display; hard drive-based design not as reliable as flash-based equivalent; generic look and feel

If you need an affordable medium-capacity subscription-ready player with no extra features, then the RCA H100 series looks like a safe bet.

Hegel H100 Integrated Amplifier (TAS 206)

 

Understated elegance. Quality over quantity. Substance over style. If the underlying sentiments expressed in those phrases appeals to you, an integrated amplifier could be the solution to a straightforward yet beautiful system. The prospect of fewer...

Good little player

 

This player is worth every penny I paid for it (which wasn't much). I've had it for about 2 years now, and have never had a problem (except for the hard drive space... I have a lot of music). All around great player.

Good battery life, excellent for price

No colour screen

Ok product

 

This product was given to me for Christmas 2 years ago. It worked fine until a few days ago. It quit playing in the middle of a song. Now it won't turn on at all. The buttons were wearing out soon after I got it.

I could listen to music

The buttons were wearing out quickly

An alright MP3 player for an alright price.

 

This is my first MP3 player, and while it worked, I liked it. It held my music, it played my music, and it froze for no reason. That last one merits the "4", among other reasons. Firstly, it came with a whole bunch of crap I couldn't get rid of: the...

Cheap. Relatively easy to navigate

Software problems. Unneeded crap
