Vosonic Technology launched the volume shipments of its X´s-Drive Pro VP300 digital album.

This series was first introduced by VP2030 USB1.1 model in 2002 followed in May 2003 by VP2060 supporting USB2.0, MSPro and featuring an LCD. The new X´s-Drive Pro VP300 differs by the updated design, enables to browse and manage files and play music stored on its 2.5" HDD (9.5mm thick) using the integrated MP3 player. Given the player, the bundle naturally includes earphones. It´s nice that X´s-Drive Pro VP300 supports even xD-picture Cards alongside other popular standards.

The model will be shipping in two body colors. Without an HDD X´s-Drive Pro VP300 will cost $140.

A sample of X´s-Drive Pro VP300 is already in our lab, so we´ll offer you a review in the nearest future.
