Rio Carbon

With all the MP3 players on the market today, it's hard to find one that stands out. With its ergonomic design and ample display screen, the Rio Carbon fits the bill. It has several features that allow you to listen to your entire music collection with a minimum of repetition. This is an MP3 player designed by music lovers for music lovers.

The Rio Carbon has a 5 GB hard drive which is enough space to hold about 1200 songs in MP3 format (128 kbps). Music formats include MP3, WMA, and Audible, and the built-in microphone can be used for voice recording. It is powered with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery which can give up to 20 hours of listening time when fully charged.

Navigation is intuitive and effortless thanks to the directional pad on the face of the player. Designed for one hand operation, you can easily find the songs you're looking for or access the setup functions with a few clicks.

You have lots of options when it comes to selecting songs. They can be chosen by artist, genre, year, album, or track. There's even a search function that allows you to find songs which you listen to within any time period.

The software which comes with the Rio Carbon allows you to organize your music collection and transfer it to the player. When connected to the computer through the USB 2.0 interface transferring songs to the player is as simple as dragging and dropping. The drive is recognized by the computer as a removable hard drive and can be used to store any kind of computer data.

The battery is one of the most long-lasting of any MP3 player on the market. It can be recharged through the USB port or through the charging cradle which is included with the player. Other accessories include ear buds, carrying case, USB cable, power adapter, and installation disk.

This is a truly versatile MP3 player. The only small criticism about it is its inability to generate play lists from the player itself, however, this function is easily handled with the software.
