Memorex TouchMP (8GB)

The Good The Memorex TouchMP is an affordable touch-screen media player that supports music, video, photos, radio, and audiobook playback, and also includes a voice recorder and a decent pair of in-ear headphones.

The Bad The TouchMP's construction feels as cheap as its price, and the interface isn't much to look at.

The Bottom Line The Memorex TouchMP is the first MP3 player we've seen that combines touch-screen technology, useful features, and an attractive design, for less than $100.
