Packed to the brim with features and powered by a single 'AA' battery, MPIO's latest FG100 digital music player has all the frills you would expect from a modern solid-state flash memory player. Decked with an internal radio tuner, the player has the potential to offer you an endless stream of diverse mix of music that allows you to grind away the boredom of commuting or when you're patiently waiting for that date of yours to show up. From its technical specifications, the FG100 does have an impressive array of functionalities most other similar devices lack. But with heaps of digital music players available in the market right now, there are just too many shoddy brands offering 'similar' features at unbelievable prices, picking out a good digital music player that suits your need is a daunting undertaking. Will the FG100 be that gadget for you or will it simply be just another mediocre player? Our thoughts and more are in the following pages.
