Pros This is an awesome idea! Cute. And it looks like it's got decent features.
Cons No candy? ***?! ; No screen; A little on the expensive side, given it's features
Summary I think this is a cute idea. It sounds like a great mp3 player for kids and PEZ collectors. But I also think the guy could've gone a little further. I know everyone jokes about this, but seriously -- if it actually dispensed candy *AND* played music, that would be the coolest thing! Even tho no one likes PEZ candy, it's the concept!
It seems that the look-like-a-PEZ-dispenser feature is the only real worthwhile quality in this player. At $99, the price is a bit steep, as there are plenty of 512mb players out there for less. And most of them have displays. As an aside, I wasn't the least bit impressed with the comparable iPod Shuffle, either. I like my $60 Creative MuVo better.
Pros cool looking, funny
Cons no candy (yet)
Summary this thing is cool but it needs candy. I wonder if it sounds nice. i dont think this will you know burst out sales but it is pretty cool
"Looks Interesting"on by lowter
Pros Cuter idea, funny
Cons Just a bit overdone really
Summary I think this is a cute little idea, although I know I would never buy one. I only wonder if it holds candy at the same time? That would be a quite unique feature.
Pros ideal way to store digitized 78's of Frankie Avalon, Bo Diddly, and Rosemary Clooney, etc
Cons I need 2 GB
Summary If you get one of these for yur father (with idiot proof instructions) with "his music pre-installed, youf Christmas gift from him will
Pros Makes me laugh. I wont feel depressed when it gets scratched or breaks.
Cons If I could travel 20 years back in time I would like to add a Commodore 64 data interface to it and use it as an impressive, fast and funny looking 512MB harddisk! (imagine how cool that would be?)
Summary Most disgusting looking audio player ever seen I should say.
But as disgusting as it might look, it's hard to imagine that the chipset inside is not some standard type used in other MP3 players so the sound quality can't be that bad.
Note: I'm writing my opinion - not reviewing a product I have.
But if I had one I would love to bring it back through a time travel trip to the 1970s and show it to some Hifi nerds as a digital audio player of the future. With the right MP3 file compression, it might beat most of the very expensive HiFi record players of that time - on distortion, S/N ratio, frequency response etc.
So in some way this disposable looking MP3 player is a good icon for how much the world has changed in consumer electronics in such a short time.
For my personal use, I'll continue using my iPod and keep dreaming about the time travel thing
