Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Execellent features. There is so much you use it for. Recording from and to TV, listening to songs, watching movies and pictures, configurting slide shows. WiFi internet access. Very good screen quality.
Bad points:
There are a few issue to be noted. The main one is that you have to pay extra for basics like Battery charger or to be able to use the Internet. The battery life is not great. It can only be used for a few hours before it needs recharging.

Phil, London

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent display, good sound quality, and good size for portability. Excellent if what you need is only a media player. Touch screen is great, and the buttons on the side are of a good design and easy to use.
I've had mine for a month and so far it's great
Bad points:
Add on Charges :(( some codec formats i.e. AC3 not supported so you need to purchase extra add on. Also (I don't require it so it doesn't bother me), but if you wish to use the wifi than you need to purchase add on web browser. Mine did not come with a mains charger, only USB but you can purchase a adapter head to overcome this.
