De mannen van 3DHardware.net hebben een review geschreven over de Creative Labs D.A.P Jukebox, ook bekend onder de naam Nomad Jukebox. Deze draagbare MP3 speler komt met een hardeschijf van 6.4GB, goed voor 100 uur muziek en een prijskaartje van ruim 1000 piek. Volgens de reviewer is deze prijs wel gerechtvaardigd aangezien je daarvoor een zeer complete MP3 speler krijgt met een ongeėvenaarde hoeveelheid opslagruimte :
All in all the D.A.P Jukebox is a superb portable player, not because it is the most portable or the cheapest, but because it combines massive storage with great features that makes the D.A.P Jukebox the one to beat. At $499 (European list price) it is not something for everyone but consider that you also get 6Gb of mobile storage space (a driver upgrade that enables ordinary file transfer will be made available after the player has been released). To further add to the value Creative Labs will also release a remote control for the D.A.P Jukebox which will be available in the beginning of 2001 - free of charge for all D.A.P Jukebox owners (how swell).
"Well, what about HanGo?" I heard someone say, well what about it? The HanGo player costs more (it too features a big harddrive) and by looking at the features it is clear that it has no match against the D.A.P Jukebox, however it must be mentioned that the HanGo player was released much earlier.
The D.A.P Jukebox is definitely something that will last much thanks to its programmable nature, new formats will be supported and new features can be added. With the arrival of AAC and MP4 it is comforting to know that the D.A.P Jukebox will be able to handle future formats so you don't end up stuck with MP3 while all the rest do MP4.
This is why we will award the D.A.P Jukebox our AllStar Hardware Award for performance and feature excellence.
