Thomson PMP2516 1GB PMP for the Cheap

This is the PMP2516, Thomson's $172 portable media player. Interested? Don't be. It has a measly 1GB of onboard memory with no expansion slot for other types of media. One freakin' gig? What kind of media do you expect me to put on that? A movie and a single album? Yawn.

If you really are interested, this PMP has a 2.5-inch screen, TV-out, line-in recording and a dictionary (!!). It lacks support for a wide range of video formats only playing MPEG-4 and ASF. Our take: shell out the extra bucks and get something worthy of being called a portable media player.
