Ultra Products is known mainly for its impressive looking and solid performing power supplies, but they have recently taken a dive into consumer electronics by offering MP3 players. Currently they have three MP3 players available. The one we’ll be looking at is the 256MB 8-in-1 MP3 Player.

Features:

· USB Flash Drive
· MP3 Player
· Voice Recording
· SD/MMC Card Reader
· Email Communication from Anywhere!
· Interface: USB with Removable Media
· Memory Size: 256MB
· Dimensions: 4.25" x 0.75" x 1.5" (L x W x H)
· Expandable: 1 Gb SD/MMC (Total: 1,256 Mb)
· Rechargeable Battery Included

Inside the packaging, we found an instruction manual, a mini CD containing drivers, a pair of headphones, a USB cable, and the 256MB MP3 player. A rechargeable AAA battery was also included in the package. The 256MB 8-1 MP3 Player takes one AAA.


Examination

Appearance-wise the Ultra 256MB MP3 Player is pretty standard. It looks like a normal flash drive and the size of the drive is just slightly larger. Most of the exterior of the player is composed of deep blue plastic and the back of the player is composed of black rubbery material. This is a nice touch since it keeps the player from sliding around when placed on a surface. A “joystick” of sorts allows for easy navigation with your thumb. It was fairly easy to use but a bit short. Also found on the front of the player are two buttons, which provide “on,” “off,” “play,” and “stop” functionality, and the display screen. The cap on the end of the player hides the USB connection. Finally on the backside of the player there is a slot for flash memory cards. This unit takes SD cards and MMC cards up to 1GB. This is an extremely useful feature for those with more than 256MB of music, as the flash memory can be inserted and the music is immediately playable from the card.
