The M18 looks like a pocket USB drive and in truth, it’s just that with a few extras thrown in. Powered by a single AAA battery (good for around 6-8 hours of playback) and weighing just 40g, the M18 supports MP3 and WMA files, with track details available on the 33 x 96 pixel LCD screen with frontlight. There’s also an FM tuner and voice recorder packed in, along with a sleep timer and of course, 4GB of storage.
Tracks are transferred via USB 2.0 connection (backwards compatible with USB 1.1 too) and earphones are included. The Sumvision M18 is available now in a choice of colours, priced at £39.
