It has a sleek design while sporting a small LCD screen for navigating through the different menus and songs. It is powered by a single triple A (AAA) battery that fits neatly into the rear of the device.

    The Good & The Bad of the MP3 Player

    While the Nextar MP3 player has some really great features, it also has a few drawbacks. One in particular is the memory size. The device only holds 512 mb of data, which means that it will not support a huge library of music. It also will not support video, which is standard on many of the MP3/MP4 devices that are out today. Of course, with the LCD screen being so small, it is easy to understand why it doesn’t support video or a touch screen. While these missing features can put some individuals off, other people actually like the fact that the device is simple to use. For instance, if you were purchasing this device for your child, you wouldn’t need to worry about them watching videos which are inappropriate.

    These negatives, however, are outweighed by the fact that the Nextar MP3 player is incredibly affordable. That, coupled with the unique function of a voice recorder with built in microphone, makes the device hugely popular with a large array of consumers.
