Wolverine 120GB Player
Regardless of the exact demands of users, many companies deliberately limit the storage of their portable media players to keep the price low. This can be frustrating for those who like to play back or record large amounts of video. Thankfully, Wolverine Data's ESP line is available with a startlingly diverse set of features. The most conspicuous difference between the ESP and others is its hard drive storage: up to a 120GB hard disk is built-in, providing far more storage than most other players. There is also a 7-in-1 card reader to transfer files to or from other devices.
Wolverine has also seen fit to give the player its own recording abilities: it can connect to either an NTSC or PAL video source with an optional cradle and capture hours of extra video. FM radio recording is also possible, and professional photographers will appreciate the ability to store and view RAW files from common DSLR cameras. The ESP is already shipping, with prices varying between $430 for 80GB and $530 for the range-topping 120GB model.
