"Almost a great product - except for quality"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Features
The image quality on the screen is very good. Docking station, video cables and charger are all extras.
Ease of Use
Unit is a bit heavy for shirt pocket use. Nested on-screen menus could be more user friendly.
Quality
The screen scratches very easily. The black case shows marks too. Disk drive is noisy at times. My iPod stopped unexpectedly and had to be completely reset. Battery life when playing videos appears to be short.
The Wow Factor
Good for showing photos & videos
Musical Background:
Recording Engineer, Video producer
Musical Style:
Jazz
