Bought the unit a week ago Thumbs UP!!
I too purchased the unit...I have been putting it through a battery of tests...so far it plays with no issue:
.vob (un encrypted)
The unit is really LOUD! - so much so that in a retail setting I was asked to TURN IT DOWN. It easily connects to computer(s) with no software needed. (appears as a mass storage drive) the touch controls are ok, wish was more responsive, but hey it was 50.00 USD so I don't expect Ipad sensitivity. I want to try some "stress tests" next...by attempting a 1080p movie file. So far it has played the 720p resolution files flawlessly.
I love that it displays the album art (if the file has been tagged correctly - I believe another user wondered how to have the Album Art appear when playing music tracks...my best guess as it doesnt have Wifi to grab from the web - is that it is for files that are tagged with the album art in the file format.
As for the Desktop (Wallpaper) customization - it couldn't be easier...simply go to the photo file you want as your wallpaper> Touch the settings button(looks like the "gear")>click "Wallpaper" thats it, that photo will be your "Homepage" Wallpaper. ...to change, perform the same technique with another pic.
The "Ebook" function is nothing more than a reader for .txt files/ but I have encountered this sort of "claim" with other bargain media players...so I wasnt surprised.
The Voice recorder is quite good as well and allows for "Pause during recording" so that you don't have to create a new file every-time you record (for instance you could record a series of public speakers, pausing in between, and have it all saved as the same mp3 file) Oh yeah it saves the voice recordings as mp3 format (Nice!) and you are only limited to recording based on storage. Wish it had an external mic jack.
~If anyone can get ahold of the technical specs of this thing...much appreciated (ie screen actual resolution, bios type, operating system, etc...)
for those who want to purchase I vote its a Go!
for those who own...enjoy!
