Thank you. I hope the review will be helpful to you.
Pros battery life, beautiful vivid amoled screen, on the fly video chapter menu, more ways to customize the sound than you can count, divx and xvid support, able to run flash games, text in menus can be resized, desktop widgets, pinch zoom images, microSD
Cons picture viewer has lag, wallpaper only used on desktop, not all flash games work, no wifi, proprietary USB
Summary This is a media enthusiast's player. If audio sound quality is your primary concern then I would highly consider this player. The video playback is fantastic and very slick. It has a microSD slot that allows for easy memory expansion for even more files. The menu system takes a couple minutes to learn but you should be able to figure it out without external help. It's not an iPod Touch so don't expect to run apps and go online. Get an iPod Touch or an Android based player for that.
Pros -Decent AMOLED Screen,
-Quite easy-using User Interface
-GREAT Sound Quality when BBE is turned on
-Highly Analytical (Wav,APE or FLAC are played very well)
-So Sleek and light (maybe too light)
Cons -The Sound quality may not be too pleasant if you've tried BBE. A bit muddy in the mids, and lacking moisture in the bass.
Summary This player is really great, and it's now probably cheap enough to have a high value for price.
The BBE sound enhancement and the customize EQ are the best things i've ever tried. They are not any other EQs or dumb sound enhancements, it's a lot more natural and entertaining.
People might have issues with the USB cable, like the review above, but this is not the case.
You have to use some nudging and pushing in order to have a secure fit. I also thought of complaining, but i managed to resolve the problem before i took action. Strength and patience are needed.
Also, if you have a slightly decent pair of earphones, like the Shure SE215, you'll definitely be satisfied with the sound, because the high analytical ability of the device makes you hear notes and melodies that had been always hidden behind...
Pros amoLED, DviX support, Stylish look, audiophile grade audio for an MP3, and Battery life.
Cons No wireless.
Summary I'm not an owner but I'm on a computer forum with many audiophiles, computer builders, etc. Anyways, I use to think the Zune HD was the king of the market until I heard that this was the best media player that's almost perfect. I believe the iPod Touch is overrated because of it's stupid apps. I don't need apps. It's called a media player, not a portable computer. You can get a netbook for a little more than an iPod Touch and it can do all of those things but at a more powerful rate. This player offers the best sound quality the audiophiles I've asked heard.
Pros The screen (from my fleeting experience) seems vibrant
Supposed to be highest audiophile-type sound available
Cons Cannot be disconnected from mac without proper eject
USB cable slips out almost comically easily (making the first con nearly unavoidable)
Summary Had I had the chance to check this out for longer than 5 minutes, this review might be completely different. The major flaw to this glorified shooting target is that the USB cable does not lock into place in any way, basically guaranteeing that it slips out of the USB port repeatedly (in owning it for 2 hours now, it has slipped out countless times).
This wouldn't be a big deal if it wasn't abhorrently incompatible with Mac computers (I suppose Steve Jobs and his Cronies are partly to blame for this). The issue is that if not properly ejected, the device will freeze, the screen will go blank, and then neither Mac nor PC can recognize the device, which rules out the possibility of simply reformatting and starting anew. As this was given to me as a birthday gift, it was very hard to hide my look of disappointment, and made the night a total bust.
Being a bit of an 'audio snob', or audiophile as we are more commonly known, as well as just plain anti ipod, I jumped for joy upon finding a media player that could be seen by Mac at least as a mass storage device. My elation soon turned to bitterness the moment I discovered that I was basically the recipient of a $200 paperweight. I will be sending it back Monday morning and continuing my search for an mp3 player that can actually hold its own.
Do not waste your money on this product
