• Portable Music Players
  • Portable Music Players are the latest "must-have" devices for even the most casual music lover. There are a ton of personal music devices on the market: MP3 players, PMP players, CD players, MD players, and of course, the exceptionally popular iPod. There's a music device for everyone out there...but which one is for you? This YesAsia.com guide will hopefully help you determine the most suitable portable music device for your on-the-go musical needs.

    Basic User:

    You only listen to music when you have nothing else to do, and just listen from one album to the next without shuffling of skipping tracks. You only plan to use your portable player once or twice a week. You are not a great fan of music so just require an easy-to-use music device. If this is you, then here is what we think you should look for when shopping for a portable music device:

    • Format: CD player, MP3 Player, iPod Nano
    • Memory space: 1 GB or below
    • Player support format: MP3, WMA
    • Look for a player that uses regular batteries if possible. If not, then a long standby time player is a good option
    • Weight under 130g so it will be handy to carry around

    Normal music is not good enough for you anymore. You want to have the luxury to watch music videos while you enjoy the music. You want a device that can play movies too, to suit your varying entertainment needs. You will need a good quality color screen to fully appreciate movies. You will need a huge storage capacity to keep all your music, videos, and MVs. This is what we suggest to meet the advanced user's needs:

    • Format: iPod Video, PMP player
    • Storage space: 20.0GB to 60.0 GB
    • Support video format: MPEG4, WMV, AVI, M4V or even DivX in some models
    • Color LCD monitor is a must, and size will depend on how much detail you want to view when watching video
