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. The feature is great, and we found ourselves using it often. Because of the button's odd placement, however, the feature was usually triggered accidentally.

If you didn't know better, you'd swear the Memorex MMP8640 was a cell phone. That's not a bad thing, really. The Memorex MMP8640's shape fits nicely in the hand and the pocket.

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.
