Freecom BeatMan 8cm MP3 Player

4. Conclusion

Freecom BeatMan vs. MP-Zip 8cm Mp3 Players -  Page 4

Review by Elias Hantzakos

Conclusion

Although Mini-CD players are such a great idea, neither of the two devices we tested is perfect, as both of them still leave some things to be desired. This is to be expected, as what we tested is essentially first-generation devices, which will definitely improve over time. However, if you're on the market today and need to buy a portable music device, don't overlook these two offerings, as both of them can fit most users' needs adequately. You just have to decide which one is best for you, by reading the above review and checking the following short list of pros and cons. The choice is up to you!
