Transcend is most notably known for their media storage devices as they've been around since 1988 and have over 2,000 products under their belt. Most of these products include USB thumb drives, portable hard drives, computer peripherals, and graphics cards. Their flagship line of products for media storage is the JetFlash series. In the past, some of the products we've examined included their JetFlash 2A and the JetFlash DSC, which was a small digital camera/thumb drive that measured in at a miniscule 80 x 29 x 16mm. Although the product we're examining today isn't quite that small with dimensions of 86 x 36 x 16.5mm, it's an MP3 player with voice recording and FM radio support. This product is the Transcend JetFlash MP3 128MB.

Found inside the plastic packaging was a Transcend warranty card, JetFlash MP3 product manual, two Duracell AAA batteries, one USB cable, ear buds, Transcend product flyer, mini CD, lanyard, and the actual 128MB MP3 player. Although only one AAA battery is necessary for operation, Transcend was kind enough to include two batteries, each with a 15-hour life expectancy. Unfortunately, Transcend has yet to re-design the eyehole where the lanyard attaches to the device. All of the Transcend JetFlash products we've reviewed in the past were prone to this difficulty of sliding the lanyard through this small hole, it would be nice if Transcend could take after Corsair and their hook for the lanyard on their Flash Voyager drives.
