InformationWeek reviews Kingston K-PEX 100 portable media player and concludes that this is a very neat little gadget. The sound quality is good; you get, according to the manufacturer, 17 hours of power when fully charged (this is assuming you are using it strictly as an MP3 player; your mileage, of course, will vary); the screen is sharp and clear. And at an MSRP of $130 for the 1GB version and $180 for the 2GB version, it’s not a bad choice.
