I think they sent a refurbished or previously returned (damaged) item

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.
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.
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...
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.
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...
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.
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.
