Designtechnica reviews the MSI Megastick 256MB MP3 player

While they lack the extra polish we like to see to make a common product like a digital audio player stand out amongst the rest, both of the MSI Megastick MP3 players are good solid products for their price.

We do not know what MSI was thinking when they decided to ditch the ear buds in favor of the external headphones on the 256MB version of the player and that hurt its score significantly. The backlight display and menu is easy to see and use, and because the player is seen as a hard drive on your computer, it's very easy to transfer files over to the player.

Those looking for iRiver or Apple quality might be a bit disappointed and audiophiles will want to look elsewhere. All-in-all the performance and sound quality of both players is average and what we expected considering the price range they fall in. We recommend that you purchase an extra set of ear buds to use with the 256MB version since the headphones packaged with this player are of poor quality. The Megastick series MP3 player from MSI would make a good gift for any teenager or those that do not want to pay an arm and a leg for a multi-purpose digital audio player.
