The world of portable entertainment has grown exponentially over the past few years and companies from big to small are getting in on the action.

Kingston K-PEX 100 Review

The Kingston K-PEX, is short for “Kingston Portable Entertainment eXperience�is jammed packed full of versatility in a tiny size. On top of which Kingston has packed the box full of accessories. Kingston does offer the K-PEX in a range of options from a 1 or 2 GB version; with or without a 256mb SD card, all ranging from less than $100 to $150.

Is the saying “Everyone has to start somewhere�a bad or good thing for Kingston?
