Bij Neoseeker is vandaag een review verschenen van de Artec I-Jungle MP3 speler. Deze speler maakt gebruik van flash geheugen en is verkrijgbaar in smaken van 48MB t/m 96MB. De unit ziet er erg relaxed uit, en produceerd daarnaast volgens de reviewer ook prima geluid. Een erg irritant nadeel van de speler is wel het feit dat hij de volume settings niet onthoud, maar ondanks enkele inperfecties is het toch een erg goede speler :
The Jungle-I is definitely an eye dazzler and pocket pleaser. It is the first MP3 player that has impressed me with its sheer dimunitive size and stylin’ looks. The audio quality is also nothing to be ashamed of, so this player packs beauty and ability with high quality construction. You can literally slip this baby into your shirt pocket and none would be the wiser, save for the headphone cables peeping out from under the shirt.
An integrated Lithium Ion battery means that you don’t have to worry about buying any batteries, and is also a bonus because it can be charged with no regard for battery “memory” related effects. I was disappointed in some of the unpolished features, especially the lack of any settings retention when the player is powered off, and this ultimate hurts the player more than even its lack of expandability.
As a tech toy and gadget, this player scores top marks… it will wow your friends and let you show off how cutting edge you really are – I am so in love with the product that I get giddy when I pick it up and show it to someone that has yet to see such a small audio wonder. I would have given the player a 90%, in spite of its lack of expansion and its limited LCD display… but that whole thing about the volume settings retention forces me to dock off some marks and award only a 82%. Ideally, Artec will revise the Jungle-i and improve it for a better end product.
