    X-Micro Eva

    Bottom Line: The Eva is a great MP3/WMA player and thumb drive, but some compromises had to be made to keep it reasonably priced.

    Conclusion

    The biggest and most obvious drawbacks to this device in my eyes are the included software, the radio and a lack of volume adjustment in the microphone. However, in using the Eva these were some the functions I made the least use of. The only reason the software made its way onto my hard drive was to get a picture of what the interface looked like and to see if any additional features were unlocked. Thankfully this was not the case. The radio as I mentioned earlier was quickly replaced by a set of regular earbuds. It’s a shame X-Micro didn’t include some way to increase the microphone sensitivity, for some it may be a little too low. To cram all of these features into such a small device and maintain a reasonable price some compromises had to be made; but, at a price of around $70 for the 256 Meg model you can’t complain too much.
