The top of the Memorex MMP8640 has a small button labeled MyDJ. The button creates intelligent playlists on the fly, grouping songs with similar characteristics.

Envy is not the first word that comes to mind. The Memorex MMP8640 isn't a bad MP3 player, however, it's just second-rate compared with its competition.

The Memorex MMP8640 comes with a monster-size manual, a pair of earbuds, a USB cable, and a protective pouch. The player also comes pre-installed with more than 500 songs, which we promptly deleted.
