Testing the Aigo MP5, several in one

2009020602064143 Aigo is a word that the Chinese coined to try to compete with the word Ipod, although it has not caught on much, from this company several gadgets have emerged such as the portable solar charger and digital microscope. The MP5-MP5901 is one of them, which apart from multimedia playback functions can function as a USB memory, FM radio, e-book reader, among others.


  • USB
    4GB at the moment is enough for data transfer purposes, apart from that it supports MicroSD expansion card up to 8GB, the kind that mobile phones have. It is a very good solution to view or download data from your digital camera or phone when you are traveling. 
  • Media player and more
    It supports a good number of audio (MP3, WMA, APE, FLAC), video (RMVB, RM, AVI, MPEG, MPG, DAT, FLV, WMV) and photo formats. Besides, it has a sound recorder (WAV format), which sooner or later is necessary when you are in conferences where you expect to take notes, there is not enough time and it is necessary to do a later memory aid.
  • FM radio
    When you plug in the headphones, they become an antenna for frequency modulated (FM) reception. It is also possible to record directly from the radio in WAV format
  • Reader of books
    It brings a reader for e-books .txt formats, although I'm not very interested because the intention is to convert books with the SodelsCot from txt to audio, and take advantage of the trip because the battery that is charged via USB runs in more than 8 hours with audio and almost 3 with video. A good option to read (hear) many books that are on the Internet in digital format.


Simply magnificent. It only has one button for on / off. The rest is done with your nails as it has a 640 × 480 LCD touch screen, a very attractive menu for basic functionalities. It has enough settings to make the battery last longer, such as managing screen brightness or shutdown time while not in use.

It needs a little hole to attach a cord, with the idea of ​​ensuring that children do not drop it or when it is going to run. For a next model it would be good to read conventional SD.

The price is not bad, if we consider that it fulfills the functionalities of an Ipod, video player, FM radio, recorder, stopwatch, USB memory and book reader. Maybe $ 59 is not to waste in a year of world crisis, but to make a car gift in exchange for the points accumulated on the credit card is not a waste ... and for these days that the electricity is gone and the curfew they change it like panties; not bad.
