Altech Computers are a local computer wholesaler located in Sydney and Brisbane and a strong supporter of TweakTown. It seems that the big thing at the moment is flash drives. Since so many companies have started producing these flash drives, some with the ability to play MP3's, the price drop on these devices has been significant.
We have already had a chance to look at the MP3 player that Mushkin have on offer earlier in the guide, it will be interesting to find out if the Seitec unit which Altech have provided us with can keep up with it.
- Seitec MP3 player
The first thing you notice about the unit when gripping it in your hand is that it doesn't feel as good as the Mushkin MP3 player. As far as features go it is very similar to the Mushkin unit - USB 1.1 interface, light weight, no drivers needed.
One feature that does separate it from the Mushkin unit and a lot of other units we have seen is the inclusion of a laser pointer, while it doesn't really have any specific purpose it is a nice little extra and a little bit of fun. We don't recommend that you point it at people's eyes, saying that there is no harm in pointing it in some ones window who is 200 meters down the road.
Editor's Note - Note to companies, please do not send any of our writers any more laser flashy things, please!!!
The sound quality out of the device is just as good as the Mushkin, of course you are not going to be able to get CD quality due to the limitation of MP3s and it will sound better with higher quality headphones, but for most people this will be an easy and small solution. These units are also a lot lighter and easier to carry around then a disc man. Due to the use of CD's they are limited to just how small they can get them, unfortunately it is always slightly bigger then a CD.
This unit is also a lot cheaper then the one Mushkin has on offer, overall if you are in the market for an MP3 player and you are doing it on a budget this may be a better option. While I haven't heard a lot about the company, hopefully we will see some more products from them in the near future.
