You may be surprised to learn that even MP3 players that are well under 100 dollars can still pack a nifty set of features. These super-budget portables may not typically come with screens for displaying photos and video (media players), but are great if you just want to listen to music, audiobooks, podcasts, and other audio.
If you're looking for a cheap portable player that does more than just play music (MP3 players), then you need a portable media player (PMP). This type of portable device is suitable for digital audio, photos, and video.
If you have invested a lot of time and money into building up a media library, then you'll want to make sure that you have a backup just in case disaster strikes. It's a fact of life that your computer's hard drive will fail, and so backing up your digital music, videos, photos, and other important files is essential. Here is a list (in no particular order) of 1TB hard drives that have been selected for their performance, features, and value for money.
USB turntables make an excellent gift for anyone who wants to transfer their old collection of vinyl records to digital audio -- like MP3. These days vinyl records are not as popular of they once were, but that doesn't mean you should keep them in the attic gathering dust. Investing in a USB turntable makes it easy to quickly transfer vinyl records to your computer which can then be synced to MP3 players, etc.
If you (or someone else you know) has got scratched CDs or DVDs that skip, jump, or simply don't play any more, then a CD/DVD repair kit could just save a visit to the trash can. If you want to rip your CDs for instance, then you'll need discs that have almost perfect surfaces to produce quality audio files. Investing in a CD repair kit will also save you money in costly replacements.
