It's Made in Taiwan

It's well-made, and it's NOT made in China

My wife's Transcend digital media player and Image USB charger were both Made in Taiwan

My wife asked me to get her an "mp3 player" for her most recent birthday, so I wanted to buy one that would be guilt-free. I often shop for electronics at E-Life Mall (全國電子) because I can frequently find something made in Taiwan (or at least not made in China) among the available choices. I was a bit surprised to find more than one digital media player there which was made in Taiwan.

One of the Taiwan-made brands I had seen earlier at the store I visited was made by a company called A-Jet, but I bought the other brand that was available.

The one my wife preferred was made by the Taiwanese company Transcend. It can play audio (.MP3, .WMA, and WMA-DRM10) and video (.MTV format), display photos (.JPG, .BMP), record audio (.WAV format), and lets the user read e-books (.TXT). It even has a radio built in.

So that she could recharge her new player when we are on vacation, I also picked up a charger with a USB port on it. There were two models available which were made in Taiwan. I chose the Image USB 充電鼠 ("recharger mouse," named so apparently because of its size, shape, and the way it's packaged) made by Shihlin Electric (士林電機).
