A review has done by CNET:
The good: The Baylis Revolution is a wind-up MP3 player that features video playback, a photo viewer, an FM radio, a voice recorder, a line input recorder, a text reader, expandable memory, and a flashlight. You can even use it to charge your cell phone.
The bad: The Baylis Revolution is bulky, the music player does not support DRM-protected music or video, and winding the player makes an obnoxious amount of noise.
The bottom line: The Baylis Revolution may be overkill for recreational camping, but it’s a perfect boredom-buster for globe trekkers, outdoorsmen, and fans of green energy.
