Before I bought this player I visited the manufacturers website, I liked the specifications and it's peformance values so I decided to go for it, I bought this player from a shop at £37.99,For a player that boasts 3-5 hours playing time on one set of rechargeable batteries, has in-built charger, supports VCD, comes with a remote control and gives an on screen display of the MP3's on the disc this would apear to be great value for money.
The manual that comes with it is written in Pigeon English and can be hard to follow at times.Ther player comes with all the cables that you require to connect it to the TV, and a credit card sized remote control, as well as headphones, although sound quality improves dramatically if you use better brand headphones
It takes up to 5-8 seconds for the player to queue up and play each track.According to the manufacturer the following is the battery operating times:
3-5 hours (MP3/128kbps or VCD / Alkaline Type)5-8 hours (CD-DA with ESP / Alkaline Type)
7-10 hours (CD-DA without ESP/Alkaline Type)Having used this player to play files at 192kbs I am lucky if I can get one hour of listening time using the rechargeable batteries that were supplied with it, given that they were an unknown brand I put this problem down to them being poor quality rechargeable batteries, I replaced them with a well known brand to no avail as the playing time did not improve.
There is a small clear plastic window which covers the LCD display, on the three of these players that I have had to date this has fallen off, not as a result of any physical knocks to the player but simply because it hasn't been glued properly to the player, the third player that I have now had three months is the longest period I have had any one of the three, the play buttons on the player itself are failing, they refuse to respond when pressed, only with perseverance do you get a reponse from the player.I am very dissappointed with this player, for a slight increase in the cost the manufacturer could have paid more attention to construction of it and improved the power consumption.
