"Amazing, why did it take them so long to think of this?"4.5 starson by paperdesk
Pros: Interface, ease of use, battery life, video playback, quality
Cons: It's large, No line in.
Summary: This machine is amazing! After looking for days, and considering everything from Ipods to flash players, I went for this one when I came across a demo of the Portable Media Center software. It's even better then it's advertized! I feel like I'm running Windows Media player 10.
The audio quality is excellent, and the battery life seems to even outshine my Zen Touch. It's small onboard speaker actually puts out decent sound, and is surprisingly loud for it's size. I much prefer though to listen with good headphones to appreciate the fine sound quality.
The only two drawbacks I've found: It's size. I wish they could put all this into a smaller package, but then you'd lose that beautiful screen, and quality video playback.
No line in: It would be nice to record.
Overall, it's as close to perfect as I've seen anywhere!
