This is the best quality 4.3 Inch Touch Screen MP5 player we have seen from China so far. First of all it looks great, it has an outer aluminium casing which weighs in heavier than its smaller peers which makes it feel like a good sturdy device when held in the hand.
It has no buttons on the front leaving the whole 4.3 inches free to be consumed by the touchscreen to display all your videos/images with a whopping QVGA resolution of 480 x 272 pixels.
Touchscreen response is decent when using a finger, better with the stylus. Id reccomend you calibrate your screen first, on our example this was found in the settings menu under ‘rectification’ (according to the chinese this is another word for calibration?!). Click on the crosses until it closes and your away.
Customise Your Desktop Themes
One of the great features of this particular player is the ability to switch the desktop theme, this has become quite familiar now on many rockchip players. Here are some examples of the colourful desktops available:
Ive only shown 3 here but there are 8 available in total, not bad eh!. It is possible to upgrade the firmware on these devices to edit the strings of text and the images, though I havent figured out how to do so on the latest RK2706B firmware, if anyone figures it out drop us a comment!
Now if any of you have read any of my earlier posts you will know one of the main advantages of an MP5 player such as this one is the easy to use drag and drop functionality. With video files especially on your everyday MP4 Player you will first have to preconvert/downsize your AVI/MPG video files to fit on the player. The advantage of most MP5 Players is that you can literally drag your downloaded/burnt video files straight onto the extra drive that will appear on your pc when you connect it. And thats it job done! Video playback is smooth with quality sound output, even the built in speaker is pretty decent for its size
Yes it can even output video to your lovely widescreen TV, and you dont need to go out and purchase the cable to do so as the cable is included! (Now you wont catch apple doing that!). Youll get a cable with different connectors at each end. One end for your tv will have 3 connectors (yellow for video, red and white for audio). Then there will be a headphone connector and tv out connector to fit into the respective outputs on your MP5 Player. Simply play your video, press the little tv icon on the screen of your player (make sure your tv is switced to the correct input), now you should see your film on your tv in its widescreen glory!
Well of course it aint just a video player, its a portable media player which means it will happily play all your tunes either through its built in speaker or via headphones (3.5mm headphone socket). You will also get ID3 support so you can sing along to Aquas “barbie girl” to your hearts content
As mentioned previously this is a portable media player so you will get other features such as an ebook reader – this player is fantastic for ebook reading, its just the right size and the screen is crisp making it easy to read. Great for going on holidays when you dont want to lug all your books around. Youll also get voice recording features plus the ability to record from the radio!
Well you can pick these up from China for around 30-40 quid but add on your customs and duty charges plus the postage costs if your item is faulty and you may aswell buy one from the Uk.
