  • BA1000 will give iPod a good run - for the money

    Jul 2, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Low Cost Lots of Storage Space Lots of Cool Features Most Players Don't Have
    Cons: Battery is not replaceable short battery life No firmware upgrade Tends to lock-up sometimes

    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

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Features for the price you pay
    Cons: Requires a lot of tweaking and maintenance. Features are not well tested.

    Summary: - I spent over two weeks trying to make my purchase work (I really wanted to keep this unit). - Thanks to one of the reviews earlier, I also identified that I could not load the software from the mini-CD-ROM on my XP system. I downloaded the application ... read more

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

    Summary: I have no problems with my Bantam 1000 except for the size. Where else are you going to get a 5GB mp3 player with a built in FM tuner with presets and bells and whistles for that price. ... read more

    Pros: NONE
    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: Inexpensive
    Cons: Locks up frequently, software sucks, no firmware upgrades

    Summary: Two days before my trip to Europe I realized I needed some music for the 10 plane ride from SF to London. I ran down to the local electronics warehouse in search of an Ipod. Unfortunately they were sold out, but had an inexpensive alternative. The ... read more

    Pros: cheap
    Cons: Battery last 2 hours when fully charged. The songs freeze up on you.

    Summary: There is no software with this unit, you must download it. When you download your files, it takes too long to boot up. It takes 15 seconds before songs play and then it plays 5 songs and it freeze up on you. Battery life is 2 hours, as soon as the ... read more

    Pros: with the proper headsets VERY Good sound!
    Cons: BATTERY LIFE!

    Summary: I just purchase one of this MP3 players the Bantam. I have to admit that it is impressive and it does offer a wide varitey of features. It does replace your cd-player, radio, voice recorder and portable storage. I am still in the begining of using it ... read more

  • Bantam Ba-1000 Don't waste your money

    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
