What a BS review! There are about 5 things I care about for an MP3
1. Power consumption
2. Power consumption
3. Spinup time
4. Shock rating
5. Power consumption
Aside from a sideways mention of shock rating and power consumption,
they ignored these things.
Real world review:
About 6 months ago I installed the Toshiba 80 gig drive. I recently
ran my JBR V1 to battery exhaustion for the first time. I got 23
hours out of 2300 mah batteries playing 45kbps audio books. The
battery indicator zeroed out at about 16 hours.
That is at least a third more battery life than I ever got with the
stock drive. Power consumption is almost everything with our
During playback, the drive will spin up, gulp some data and spin down
in under 2 seconds. That is an important characteristic because it
minimizes the time the heads are unparked and sensitive to shocks.
The OEM drive took about twice that time.
