The beatman is designed to play mini cd's which are just a smaller version of a cd, they have a 185MB of capacityand roughly i think it works out to be about 210 minutes worth of music. Because they are just smaller versions of cd's they are cheaper than mini disks and they are sold in most computer shops.
The actual shape is aesthetically interesting with a transparent blue cover with a simple interface which has the basic stop, play fast forward and rewind. On top of this there are funciotns such as repeat, program, intro and eq.
The player has a useful 40 seconds of anti shock adn the player also comes with a free adapter which means you can plug it into the back of your stereo without having to waste money on batteries. THe main down point of the beatman is the actual amount of battery power it consumes i a short time so i recommend rechargeables. It claims to last for roughly 7 hours and thats using the most advanced barrteries around so it can begin to break the bank.
The freecom beatman is definate buy because it is around £100 and is reasonably easy to use.
THe last mention is that when i first got mine the player constantly kept switching off regardless of the battery power and i found that the connection between the two batteries in the battery compartment.
