We're not exactly sure why The Muzatch Company decided to name its latest PMP after the prison system's facilities for the most dangerous and high-profile criminals, but the Super Max MZH-801's considerable feature set and affordable price will surely allow most consumers to overlook the rather goofy moniker. Billed as "the world's most powerful player in next generation MPEG-4 technology," the 40GB device is apparently so remarkable that even Muzatch's chief executive can barely comprehend its sheer awesomeness: "It's almost unbelievable that something this small and compact can house so much audio and video technology," gushes CEO Jay Yenter. Besides the standard MP3 / MPEG-4 / DivX / JPEG file support, the 7-inch Super Max also tosses in an analog TV tuner, embedded FM transmitter, and most impressively, a 4000 mAh battery. Sure it's not the best looking player on the block, but when you're watching Gilmore Girls live while the rest of your iPod-toting friends are only rocking repeats, their jealousy will far outweigh any heat you take for the inelegant design. All you need to snatch up your own Super Max is $275 -- but the company claims that you have to place your order before December 5th, probably due to the overwhelming demand that's being anticipated.
