Pass, but decent price on a 5gig and I like the boom tubes…
Ah, that’s what happened to the iPod competition… relegated to Woot-ness.
more music stuff. great.
Looks like a decent combo at a good price?
Not a bad deal, looks like it gets a good review at Cnet and the combo will cost you over $200 at Amazon.
ok, since no one else wants to post info, I’ll post what I’ve found:
Virgin support for the mp3 player:

engadget review from 10-2004:
engadget story about Virgins untimely demise:
Cnet review on the mp3 player (it gets a 7.310 or very good rating)
Someone care to enlighten me? Is this a good deal?
Awesome woot, but I’m poor
Hmmm might make a nice gift
Decent, already have a 6 gb mini though.
i would pull the trigger on it if it was the ex speakers, just because i want those. The mp3 would be a nice add on.
It’s something new, and something old. great for the brides in your life.
Are these the crappy speakers? or the Boomtube ex speakers??? If they’re EX its a good deal… else its just a 119$ mp3 player.
Virgin Electronics Player VM-500 (5GB)
The good: Small and light; dedicated function buttons; supports DRM-protected WMAs (PlaysForSure designation coming soon); dual headphone jacks; FM tuner; kitschy, user-friendly interface; comes preloaded with some songs.
The bad: Unimpressive battery life; must install music manager plug-in before transferring tunes; lacks recording features; no on-the-go playlist feature; unorthodox method of transferring playlists.
The bottom line: A good device for MP3 novices, the VM-500 has some quirky and likable features, but its poor battery life spoils the party.
Rating? 7.3/10 (VERY GOOD)
Very Nice WOOT for Christmas
this is a good combo woot! considering a buy myself
What, not refurbished???
How can I have a good Christmas…
Dude, we need refurbished and NOW!!!
excellent woot… reviews not great, but considering that the mp3 player is under $100 in the bundle…
Anyone have any side by side comparison to the iPod’s screen and ease of browsing?
Not a bad deal. This could cost over two bills at other stores. Not for me I am happy with my Rio with only 256 megs?
awesome woot but not for me today put some stuff up for cars like an in-dash dvd player ha that would be the day GOD I LOVE THIS SITE THOUGH!!!
