MPIO HD300- A retrospective Review (Short version)

ritarded09, Ebay
6 May 2008
  • Summary: The HD300 was the first hard-drive based DAP I ever purchased, and I did so some time back in 2005 or 2006, shortly after it had come out. It features a 20gb 1.8" HDD using the standard CFII miniIDE interface, so very easy to swap out for other single-platter 1.8" drives of larger capacties, or hopefully, a CF card. It has built-in sound processing through SRS WoW which can be a good or bad thing, depending on your tastes.

**Review to ALL types of MP3 systems**

1337_ownage, Ebay
16 April 2008
  • Summary: Every month, manufacturers unleash even more MP3 players to an increasingly confused public. Not only do these devices have wildly divergent features, but ongoing format wars mean the MP3 player you choose dictates where you can buy your digital music. These devices are anything but one-size-fits-all. First, there's the question of design.

  • Pros: Good looking Cheap Awesome sound Huge capacity Works on linux Many EQ settings Small and light for Hard drive based unit
  • Cons: Face can scratch easilly Carry case sucks Scrolling ID3 tags are a bit difficult to read

"Think before jumping..."

Sturgaad, CNET
10 February 2009
  • Summary: My wife and I each own an HD300 and we like them. I had a hardware problem with mine which was VERY quickly and satisfactorily resolved by MPIO. If you're not going to read the directions, if you persist in punching away at buttons without knowing what you're doing, then buy a Victrola. The HD300 is a cleverly designed, very competent unit. Take a moment to look before you leap - and you'll be very pleased with it.

  • Summary: I've bought this unit in Korea for about 160 US dollars new. lucky me. this thing definitely took some time getting use to...firmware upgrade...what a hassle. did it though. AWESOME afterwards. dropped it from my couch to the floor, what!? 15 inch drop?? it DIED!!!(frozed forever) now, don't try this at home if you're not the type that used to unscrew electronics when you were 10 years old.
  • Pros: huge storage SOUND!!! plays oggs and many more moron repellent/irritator radio, Voice recording, SRS, WOW
  • Cons: Overall shuffle. there's only directory shufflle. i have over 19g of music. I need/want shuffle for all the directories. when they come up with a new firmware that deals with this, this player will be perfect.

  • Summary: slow as a snail. hangs a LOT--ASIANIC Service Center of Manila takes more than 3 weeks to service it. I had it serviced 2 times in the warranty period -more than 1.5 month it was in the "REPAIR SHOP". Avoid like gamma radiation!
  • Pros: None. Its cheap--so you get what you pay for.
  • Cons: Slow response time. Manual is useless, firmware is useless. Don't upgrade it or you'll regret it! Forget about fast forwarding audiobooks and podcasts --its unbearably SLOW.
