napster player review

Vertical integration between music player hardware and software is currently in vogue as a means of trying to regain marketshare from the iPod, and Microsoft's Zune player and software strategy is only a latecomer to the party. Napster just recently released a music player line of its own and hopes to lure people to its music service by offering discounted hardware for people who subscribe to Napster To Go. The recently released DMPJ-250c is the higher-end model of the bunch, holding 1 GB of songs and packing a color display and FM tuner. Is it worthwhile? CNET tested the 250c recently and finds that the discount is the main selling point: while the sound quality is good and there's an abundance of features, the included earbuds are sub-par and the player is otherwise resolutely average. Still, for an additional $50 beyond subscription fees it's an inexpensive way to carry your all-you-can-eat music service with you.
