The best MP3 players under $40 are typically from Coby, while Ematic too sport some pretty colourful models. These players have pretty good audio support and can play MP3, WMA, OGG formats and MTV video format as well. However not all mp3 players in the $40 bracket are capable of playing video files and this feature is model specific. Our sub $40 list of mp3 players have around 4 to 8 GB of storage and may or may not come with microSD slots.

If you are one to switch cards a lot it may be an issue since a full 16GB card may take around 2 min to refresh the database and be operational.
