Photos: Memorex MMP8640

The Memorex MMP8640 is a full-featured MP3 player with color-changing lights and an advanced DJ playlist feature. At this price, however, there are better MP3 players out there.

The Memorex MMP8640 lets you add up to 2GB of additional memory via miniSD cards. The rubber door covering the card slot seemed to stay put just fine, but tearing it off wouldn't be too hard.

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.

We were bummed that Memorex decided to place its record button directly opposite of the volume button. As a result, every time we squeezed the Memorex MMP8640 to turn the volume down, we wound up unintentionally starting a voice recording.

We found the software interface on the Memorex MMP8640 to be legible and easy to use. Compared with competing products from Sony, Apple, and Creative, however, the interface on the Memorex MMP8640 is a bit cheesy.

Light-changing LED lights within the body of the Memorex MMP8640 can be adjusted to match your mood. The lights can be set to either red, blue, cyan, green, gold, or purple

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.
