Summary: I read all the multitude of reviews for these off brand PMPs and decided to give this one a try. Big mistake and now I'll go shopping for a more reliable brand or just forget it until the technology is improved. I mainly want a music and movie player with decent screen size and this one looked like it fit the bill. It arrived with lots of packaging wear marks and even after opening the box, there were many "use" marks which may indicate a refurbished or returned item.
Summary: Those who think this is a great player may not have a really good one to compare it to. I own a PSP 4.3" screen and a Creative Zen Vision Wide 4.3". With the very same video file loaded and played back side by side, it is obvious the Mach Speed Trio is not in the same class in performance. In the compairison the lcd screen is much darker even with the brightness setting at its highest. The video playback is choppy/jittery, it looks like skipping.
Summary: My teenage stepson wanted a new mp3 player and saved up his own money for it. He wanted my opinion on three that he had narrowed down to. The Trio was one of them. After reading the only previously posted review he was a bit leery, but after I read the review it was clear to me that the reviewer's disappointment came from the wrong expectations and it was worth trying.
Summary: I would absolutely suggest this MP3 player to anyone! This player is simple to operate, looks great, has great sound quality, and lots of memory. The 3 inch screen looks great. It was easy to drag and drop the music files onto the player. No problems with transeferring or getting it to recognize files. Easy operation and simple navigation menus, yet it still has all the features you could want.
Summary: If you are buying this for the 4.3" screen you will get a decent video player and a decent mp3 player. However this is where the features peak out for this player. The 2 headphone ports are pointless, the stopwatch feature takes half a second to stop, the calculator is a simple and not a scientific one, and the Ebook reader doesn't read PDF files, only TXT.
Summary: I bought 2 of these exact items here on Amazon, via TigerDirect. The instructions are in hard to interpret (Chinese version of English); the Menu navigation is not logical; and the most important feature, the voice recorder, works for a 6 months and just stops working. The memory portion, for purposes of using as a thumb-drive is the only thing that still works... I recommend you don't buy!!!
Summary: Aside from other inconveniences; the whole menu is in chinese/japanese, so it is hard to figure out what to do when you are stuck and far away from the little manual. Also it is very hard to turn on. It would take me about 5 minutes to turn on. Some times I just gave up and did not used it.
Summary: Product is easy to use. Performance is quite satisfactory. Quality is good. I wish it came with rechargeable battery. and charging plug. Evnthough they dont recomend for use in car, I use it without problem but use it for just listening. Do not try to navigate files while driving.
Summary: I bought this MP3 player for my son to use while mowing the lawn. It is compact and he has been happy with it. The only drawback is that it uses AA batteries (although it does state this in the description so I can't complain.) It was a good value for the money.
