Summary: These media players were state of the art only a couple of years ago. Now high end iPod and others are well ahead of them. However, for the $ these go for now, they are a steal! They are very solid and tough, have a bright clear and large screen and with 20 gig of HDD, they hold thousands of songs and pictures or even hundreds of videos. Probably the biggest down fall to owning one is the near total lack of aftermarket items to go with it.
Summary: If you can get use to downloading and converting everything to windows media formats, you will enjoy this player. I have lots of pics and music to put on here, and you can put in any order. I have not tried movies, it's comming.....
Summary: This is a great MP3 player. It has tons of storage and a huge color screen. This is not a "pocket" sized player and some people would prefer something smaller, but if you like to download videos or tv shows then this is the player for you!!
THE BEST MP4 I HAVE EVER USED! HIGHLY RECCOMENDED!!!!!!
31 January 2007
Summary: I have done alot of research and came across this masterpiece. What I was looking for was an MP3 that can do basically everything you would want for a good price. At first I was going to buy the IPOD but I know that they are expensive and dont have a big screen to watch videos unless you buy the 400 dollar one. I came across the YH-999 on a website that compares mp3 players. The YH-999 was one of the top rated mp3/mp4 players.
Summary: This is a great MP3 player. (I think!)I have only used it once because my teenage daughter fell in love with it and I haven't had a chance to use it since. We really like the fact that you can play an entire album in order without being shuffled or select the songs from that album that you want to hear. My son owns one and loves it. I have just bid on another so that Mom will be able to have her very own again.
Excerpt: "This "PMC" (Portable Media Centre) is so bad! when i first used it i was intrigued to find out what it could do. Turns out that it didnt do half of what i'd hoped! you cant queue video! its soooo slow to respond to anything (particularly switching on!) it doesnt turn off unless you press the switch under the small stand - you have to remove the playe from the (supplied) 'leather' case (which is tooo small!) in order to do so! its slow!!! its too big ...
Pros: Good bundled accessories; built - in speaker; reasonable sound quality;

Pros: large display, very easier to sync with windows xp, large staorage space
Cons: limited options to enhance picture (brightness, contrast)
Excerpt: "I bought this product in May 2005 for £350. At the time I was looking for a portable mp3 player that I could use to store my music collection. On impulse I decided to choose a player that also included the ability to watch video. I made a wise decision, because the quality of the display on this device is brilliant, especially when watching encoded dvds. When I took the player out of the box for the first time I was initially impressed by the size ...
Pros: Large display, syncs seamlessly with Windows XP, Fantastic video playback, adaquate storage space
Cons: Low battery life, quite bulky, not enough options for sound/picture adjustment
