Apacer Steno AB320 MP3 Player Review

1. Introduction

Apacer has a good reputation with flash products, including memory devices and MP3 players. The AB320 is the latest of a series of MP3 players offered by Apacer with a stylish, colourful and above all, compact and portable. Apacer kindly offered us the opportunity to put the 512MB AB320 MP3 player through its paces and in this review, we reveal what you can expect from such a tiny device.

- Features/Package

Apacer describes the AB320 MP3 Player as a Stylish Treasure design "...elements were based on the graceful lines of a seashell, one of the most beautiful and pure objects found on earth. The smooth layers and wave-like contours give the AB 320 a natural, organic style as well as a comfortable, pleasing feel when held next to the body or in your hands.

The AB320 is a stylish MP3 player for users that not only demand great MP3 functionality, but also tasteful design. It is easy to use, with a large LCM display that clearly shows sound tracks and functions. The ocean blue backlight adds a nice feel to the player and allows the displayed information to be easily seen in bright sunlight and at night..."

The AB320 is a portable audio device offering high capacity storage for your music, photos and data, while combining the functions of an MP3 player, a USB hard drive, FM radio and voice/FM recorder into one easy-to-use device.
