Dell Pocket DJ
I know you guys have been waiting for a while now to see it. Here it is - the Dell Pocket DJ.
Here we can see that the MP3 player has a decent, clean layout. The playback buttons are located at the bottom of the front. As you can see, there are Forward and Backward controls and also a Play/Pause button. One thing I found that it lacks is a Stop button. So you can't really stop a track when it's playing, only pause. One thing that I liked immediately was the scroll wheel. The display is also reasonably large.
The Pocket DJ actually had a sticker (which I removed before taking the above shot.)
As you can see, it also doubles as a reminder...
Let's flip it over, shall we?
Here is a picture of the back of the Dell Pocket DJ.
You may have noticed the locking switch on the the top left of the player. This switch is used to lock (or unlock) the keypad on the front. This is handy if you have the Pocket DJ in your pocket. It would prevent any accidental depression of the buttons.
The back shows the size of the onboard hard disk, along with the service tag and serial number. You may also notice the four pegs on the corners of the Pocket DJ: these serve as a stand to prevent scratches when you place the Pocket DJ on a horizontal surface.
Now, let's take a look at the top of the player.
This is a look at what the top of the Pocket DJ. There are three buttons and two jacks. The buttons are the volume control buttons ( +/- ) and the power button. The one beside the power button is the USB jack. This is where you would plug in the USB cable or the AC adapter to charge the unit up.
Finally, to be thorough, let's look at the bottom part.
The bottom of the Pocket DJ is devoid of buttons, so the Dell logo stands out clearly. The tiny hole you see in the picture above is the reset button. The manual says to press the button using a small, pointed object. This button will come in handy if the Pocket DJ starts to get cranky and freezes up.
I'll bet you're all wondering just how big the Pocket DJ is.
It's 3.5 inches long, 2.1 inches wide and 0.5 inches thick. To give you some perspective of how small that is, here's a quick size comparison.
I decided to compare the size of the player with my can of mints, one of the things lying around on my table. It turns out the that Pocket DJ is slightly smaller. Now that's really small!
So much for it's height and width, but how thick is it, you ask?
Here's how thick it is.
In comparison to the mint tin, the Pocket DJ emerges the thinner. Conclusion: if you can walk around with a can of mints in your pocket, the Pocket DJ is no problem at all.
Just because it's small, doesn't mean that it feels cheap or flimsy. The Pocket DJ feels very sturdy. The aluminum case that covers it is a very nice touch. The buttons are solid and everything is in place nicely.
