    Bottom Line: SLCentral reviewed the Ultra ULT31103 4-In-1 USB Drive 128MB MP3 Player, its small, light, sturdy and packed with features. We liked the sound quality and ear buds but what about transfer speed, radio reception and controls.

    The ULT31103 is advertised as a "4-in-1" MP3 player. What's funny is that it is actually a 6-in-1 device, just like the 8-in-1 MP3 player in the last review! It's an MP3 player, FM tuner, voice recorder, thumb drive, e-mail client, and SD/MMC reader. It also has the software that allows the editing of the ID3 tags. What we "lose" with this model is memory. For an MSRP of $89.99 ($75 at ZipZoomFly) as opposed to $129.99 (found for $99.99 at or ZipZoomFly) you only get 128MB instead of 256MB. This review would be over if this was the only difference, and I would give this gadget an 8 out of 10, just under the score I gave the 8-in-1 player. But my appeal for the ULT31576 becomes greater and greater the more I played with this device.

    With 128MB of memory, at 128Kbps bitrate, I was only able to copy over just over 2 hours of music. This complaint was negated by the ability to use an SD or MMC card to expand the capability of the device. I was able to take a 512MB SD filled with MP3's, insert it and my play list was immediately tripled in size. The only odd thing about this is how the added SD or MMC sticks out of the side of the device.

    The installed MMC or SD card sticks out of the side a bit.
