Summary: During my Friday ritual of kissing the wife, leaving the house to work, and picking up the Fry's ad, I saw something that caught my eye: 5GB MP3 PLAYER $129. So, I headed directly there, with a healthy dose of skepticism, and purchased it. The ... read more

Pros: 12 hour Battery life, 5GB HD,MP3 & FM tuner, Re-chargable internal battery.......
Cons: The size. It's a bit bulky.

Cons: Short battery life, play back sucks
Summary: I picked up a BA1000 on a trip to CA at a discount electronics store. I now understand why it was so cheap. It skips, doesn't download correctly, battery only lasts about 2 hours or less. Dumping it for a IPod Shuffle. Looking at if I can use it as a ... read more

Pros: Sorry, can't think of any
Cons: Constantly locks up, 2 hour or less battery life
Summary: By far the worst electronic experience I've ever had. They should include a reset tool because you'll be doing alot of reseting. It constantly locks up and that's not the worst of it. They advertise a 16 hour playback try maybe 2 hours. Also absolutely ... read more
