Product review: Insignia MP3 Player (updated)

I have a little backlog of products I promised people I would review, so bear with me. I promise I’ll be getting back to normal blogging soon here. I was really excited to get to review this Insignia™ 2GB* MP3 Player and Image Viewer because– hello!– Christmas is coming and I have three going on four teenagers to buy for and wouldn’t one of these puppies be a great gift for somebody? (NOT saying which somebody, I might add, for any teenager of mine who happens to be reading this right now.)

With this MP3 player you can listen to music, view photos or check out video clips. It even has a microSD slot for expanded memory. It is on sale right now at BestBuy for $114. Here are the specs:

–2GB* internal flash storage holds up to 500 songs, 2,000 photos, 25 audiobooks or 7 movies

–Pocket-size design measures just over 0.6″ thin and weighs only 2.4 ounces

–Supports MP3 formats and most image and video formats

I haven’t tested this out exhaustively, but here are my impressions of it. This thing is TEENY and feels to be good quality. I like that it comes with a carrying case, for some extra protection. The earbuds seem to have good sound, though I don’t claim to be an expert. The buttons are easy to figure out, and it comes with software for uploading picture. All in all, this looks like a great gift. I’ll ask my designated recipient to share more feedback after Christmas!

After-Christmas update: My 18 year old says this MP3 player is super easy to load up– she got 192 songs into it very quickly, and it’s not full yet. The picture quality and sound quality are both great! She is just thrilled with it.
