Apparently, this isn’t just another MP3 player. The aluminum casing has not been screwed or glued together, but fused in special manufacturing process called x-Protect. To further their claim to fame, somebody tested the MX700′s durability by running it over with a car, shooting the MX700 with a BB gun, and even hurled it against a brick wall and it wouldn’t break. Supposedly not much bigger the your average cigarette lighter (7.8cm high), it does support a bevy of features, including line in MP3 encoding, FM radio recording (you can even set up times to record), multi format playback (MP3, WMA, OGG, WMA DRM files), 19 hours of playback time, and other needless but yet somewhat cool features. Fear not, its USB 2.0 and its display is a 2 color 6 gray scale OLED. Memory capacity is a little on the small size – 512MB, but I suppose that is the price you pay for fashion and small size.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
