"My Perfect Little Player !!"5.0 starson by swaroop.murthy
Pros: The sound and video quality on this device is GENERATIONS AHEAD of apple or sony or any of the big players. It's got an amazing battery life, and the screen looks good enough to watch long movies on the go, the sound feels much like a theater!!
Cons: All videos need to be converted before dropping into the player. The earphones jar a bit at high volumes, for music although movie playback works fantastic at all volumes. It seems this device was engineered for movies, it does a fantastic job
Summary: This is why the D2+ is perfect for me: I was looking for a gadget that would let me watch movies as I travel to/from work on bus. So the screen needs to be brilliant and non-reflective. I needed high audio volume, because buses tend to get noisy. I also require the surround sound effect to be perfect, sounds that come from behind, literally seem to come from behind :D. I do not mind having to convert video, as my computer's on, downloading all the time.
THE D2+ is perfect for my needs, it's just fantastic. Plus it feels awesome holding the matchbox- sized movie player in my hand, having all the on-lookers fascinated by its video quality and the sheer fact that I get to enjoy movies on the ride!
You'd think a 2.5 inch screen is too small to have a proper movie experience but it isn't at all, the picture clarity and thundering sound quality make for a GIANT movie experience.
TO CNET experts: try playing the same video on iPod nano/classic/touch and the d2, before saying things like 'comparable to iPod nano'. There is no freakin' comparison, on any parameter!
