MPFit MP3 CD Player
Page 1 - Hours of music on one CD, to go!
MP3's have been popular for a while, long enough for me not to remember (ok, it could have
been an hour ago and I wouldn't remember). I remember when the first Diamond Rió
came out and the small controversy that came from it. Now there are shelves full of portable
MP3 players. Well, what we have for you today, is an affordable MP3 solution that does not
use flash memory. It uses a very cheap and high capacity ROM, a CD. :)
An MPFit MP3 CD Player can be had pretty cheaply ($109 + shipping) from
While not the cheapest thing known to man, definitely not a rip off compared to other mp3
CD playing units.
The box is not going to win an award anytime soon. However, the contents were well
protected and were delivered to me in working condition. The box included the following:
- The MPFit MP3 Player
- Ear-Bud style Ear Phones
- 4.5V AC Adaptor
- A Remote Control (connected by wire)
- A Belt Clip and a Flat Clip
- A Small Instuction Book
My first thought was that this thing was rather bulky. However, despite its bulk, it was
fairly light weight. The unit's construction actually feels kind of "cheap."
However, it has stood up to all my anti-skip drop tests (hehe). On the brighter side of
things, the MPFit has a rather cool and futuristic look to it. I also found it kind of
weird that the battery compartment was on the inside of the player, meaning you have to
open the disk compartment to put the batteries in.
Well onto the features, according to the instruction manual. I listed the ones in the
manual because the ones on the web site said it might be able to play CD-RWs, and it surely
can't. In fact, it was the first thing I tried it and it did not work.
- Plays burned CD's as well as regular CD's
- Handy Remote Control
- Digital LCD Function Display
- 500 sec. Recording Capacity (for memos or reminders)
- Displays titles of songs
Now that I have introduced the product and told you my initial thoughts, let me move on
to how the product actually performed, after all, that is the important part.
