With so much attention given to Apple's iPod series, it's easy to overlook MP3 player alternatives. Transcend has been around since 1988, manufacturing many items for today's digital world. Some of these items include: memory (desktop, Laptop, printer, and Flash), USB flash drives, external portable hard drives, MP3 players, and even digital photo viewers. Today I will be looking at the Transcend's T-Sonic 610, a 512MB MP3 player. This tiny player has a sharp appearance that includes a vibrant 2 color OLED LCD...
Background Information (taken from the Transcend USA website):

Our extensive product portfolio has grown to include over 2,000 memory modules of every type, flash memory cards, USB pen drives, portable HDDs, multimedia products, graphics cards and accessories.” They also go on to say, “Transcend has always been a customer driven company, we focus our efforts on providing the highest quality products with attentive after sales service and support, that ensures total customer satisfaction.”
"Transcend introduces its new generation of MP3 players: the T-Sonic 610™ and T-Sonic 612™.

On the back of the box you are provided with plenty of technical information including; the playback formats, box contents, and other specifications.

Opening the box, you get your first view of the tiny player. There is a little piece of plastic covering the OLED screen; this ensures nothing scratches the screen during shipment.
