Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros: MP3 encoder records of all your old tapes (and records?). 33 hours on 2GB.
Cons: May be too complicated for beginners.
Summary: Update 2006: Still using my Bantam. It was probably way ahead of its time. Looks like it flopped because an otherwise great product was sold to another company GPX which didnt support it. Too bad, they had it. Bantam BA1000: I got a 2MB (I mean 2 Giga-) ... read more

Cons: Construction. No tech support or upgrades. GPX bought bantam and stopped support/production.
Summary: The concept is great, having an mp3 player with lots of space, fm tuner with fm recording, voice recording, line-in recording. It all sounds great. The problem is that the battery is always draining even when it is off unless you learn the tricks. ... read more

Pros: Good Sound
Cons: Huge, bad button placement, bad menu, etc...
Summary: This large box is the worst mp3 player I've have ever had. I didn't pay much for it($50). So you're think 50 bucks? What's the big deal? That's my point exactly, ... read more

Cons: dosent work
Summary: I BOUGHT ONE OF THESE AT FRY'S. I found the software a bit cumbersome and not at all intuitative. It is possible to erase an entire hard drive of music if you are not carefull. The unit itself worked for approximately 2 hours and went belly up. It ... read more

Pros: Low-cost, sounds good, doubles as USB drive, record FM.
Cons: FM signals weak, no future support, DMM software stinks.
Summary: My first MP3 player and I wanted to have alot of space, but not put alot of money into it. I found the BA1000 at Fry's Electronics for $49+tax. So far, has worked great for me. Didn't use DMM software from Bantam/GPX. Got lots of tips from all over ... read more

Pros: Fantastic sound, feature packed, am/fm radio, recordable, inexpensive
Cons: Big (2 i-pods), locks up, skips, tedious software
Summary: I have purchased and returned a number of mp3 players (flash, hard drive based, minidisk, you name it). I own a 15gig i-pod, a 5 gig Bantam, and a 256mb creative nuvo. The Bantam is loaded with features but frequently locks up making it useless until you ... read more
