Have some fun with the attractive 40GB gigabeat by carrying your favorite music and pictures everywhere! That's right...not only can you listen to almost a month's worth of near CD quality music, you can view images on the gigabeat's generous 2-3/16" color screen. The attractions begin with a slim portrait-shaped case that fits comfortably into the hand and small enough to slip into your shirt pocket.. The player's unique, cross-shaped touchpad sensor ("Plus Touch") lets you easily navigate menus and control playback by just sliding your finger along its grooved path.
The gigabeat's high-speed USB interface lets you transfer an entire CD your computer in as little as 30 seconds. Use the provided USB docking cradle to make a quick connection with your PC and charge the player's built-in battery at the same time. Toshiba's straight-forward included software has everything you need to manage your music and pictures. Create your own song lists, and even add your own graphics to tracks.
The gigabeat combines good looks with a superb performance, including integration of SRS WOW from SRS Labs, for rich stereo sound that clearly brings out each instrument. A selection of 28 equalizers enhances listening pleasure across the spectrum of music, from classical to jazz and from acoustic to rock and hip-hop. You can even preset equalizer preferences on each individual piece of music.
With the gigabeat, its easy to select and display your photos. View pictures 12 at a time as thumbnails, look at them individually, or create custom slideshows. You can even use your own pictures for the screen's background. The gigabeat puts you in control of both your music and photo collection.
