    Toshiba Gigabeat 30 GB Review

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    When the Toshiba Gigabeat MES30VW was released back in early 2006, I don't think that expectations were very high because of the previous model's poor performance. This new 30 GB Gigabeat has really taken people by surprise with its great functionality, easy to use interface, good sound, and great features. We'll look at it today and see what all the fuss is about.


    Toshiba really made some good improvements with this MP3 player, and the hard work is paying off with great fanfare regarding the performance of this Gigabeat.  It's hard to say anything bad about it, as it has pretty much all the features for which anyone could ask. This is a very competitive player in a very competitive class, which is probably the most popular class on the MP3 player market today.

    This Gigabeat comes in a 30 GB model, or you can step up to the 60 GB model for even more storage space. The MRSP of the 30 GB is $300, while the 60 GB comes in at $400. I have seen the 30 GB model selling for around $200, currently, and the 60 GB for around $300. I think the 30 GB model would be more than sufficient for the average user, as you can expect to get well over 7,000 songs into the Gigabeat's small package. 

    The price of this player is very competitive at around $200, and it is probably a better value than the Apple iPod 30 GB. Some may disagree with that comment, but I think that Apple's reign as the top MP3 player manufacturer is coming to an end, because the competition is so fierce nowadays among all of the manufacturers. This is definitely a good thing for consumers, because we will start seeing MP3 players with more features and lower selling prices.
