Waitec CLIPP

Waitec CLIPP portable CD-Recorder / MP3 player - Page 3

CLIPP seems to be a good choice for all those who want to quickly burn some music and listen to it in their trip, or in the bus. The drive offers high portability due to low weight and small dimensions, and the usage of the 8cm CD-R media is also a convenient storage solution for data easy exchange and low volume backups.

The CLIPP supports playback of MP3, WMA, WAV and audio files. Our tests showed that the drive will play all the available MP3 encoded files and almost all the WMA files, with an exception with 48kbps encoded WMA files, where we experienced some problems. Also, the 8MB Anti-Shock supported buffer guarantees the smooth playback in portable usage.

The control buttons of Waitec CLIPP have many useful operations and the LCD screen gives various information about the current operation of the drive. However, the track navigation buttons do not respond very fast, and this is possibly reveals a slow disc access performance. In addition, the disc spinning is not always immediately suspended if you accidentally press the eject button during playback.

Waitec CLIPP can be easily connected to your PC through USB interface in order to use it as a CD-R recorder. The 4x supported recording speed is not high but you will not experience any problems during writing to CD-R media. The support of CD-RW format would be a great improvement for the drive, as well.

The most portable players or CD recorders "suffer" from the limited battery lifetime. Waitec CLIPP can continuously playback for 3 hours and will record for 1 hour, when it is battery powered.

Waitec CLIPP is available in the market and costs Euro 260 - VAT excluded. You can also order the drive in Waitec's website.
