Mega Stick 256
First on our hit list is the MSI Mega Stick 256. This is the newest version from MSI which includes an updated firmware for a better interface, improved sound clarity and a larger internal size of up to 256MB.
MSI has packed the Mega Stick in a 3D see through box, so you can see the unit before you buy it. In the box you get the Mega Stick, instruction booklet for operations of the various features, Driver CD for OS's like Windows 98 that don't natively support USB Mass Storage Devices, USB extension cable and an earphone set. The unit itself has four major functions, these being: FM Radio, MP3/WMA player, Digital Voice Recorder and a USB Flash drive.
The FM system has a built in Frequency Modulation Antenna that can pick up FM broadcasts from 83MHz up to 108.8MHz which covers the entire FM radio band within 99% of the world. If you have FM Radio in your country, this baby will pick it up.
The MP3/WMA player is simply that. You store MP3 or WMA tracks on the root directory of the unit. When powered up and set for Music playback, all MP3 and WMA files located in the root directory are available for playback.
The Voice Recorder function is something I personally welcome. I know I have been out on some trips or business meetings and wished I had myself a note taker or voice dictator. With the Mega Stick 256, that will never happen to you again. It has a built in microphone for voice recording. Simply press the record button on the top and then you're under way. This function is also useful for recording off the built in Radio. To do this you set your FM channel up and press the record button, this will then record the radio rather than voice.
The USB flash drive is simply what you would expect. 256MB of storage space is provided for you to transfer files onto the unit by simply plugging the unit into the USB port. The only unfortunate part of this is that the Mega Stick uses the USB 1.1 specifications, so transferring 256MB of data to and from the unit can take a bit of time, especially if you are on the run.
