No Competition At This Price!
on November 27, 2012
Through my ignorance, I was disappointed with the first of these products I received and returned it - mainly due to what I perceived as video controls not working and poor video quality. The problem was that, in the video settings, I was trying to adjust the video out settings (marked "Video Quality", rather than the onboard screen settings, which were marked "Panel Quality". When I adjusted the "Panel" settings today, I was able to bring up a very nice video quality.
There are also several audio settings - rather ho-hum with the onboard speakers, but GREAT with headphones. Very nice audio quality.
I spent several hours online trying to find a unit with the features I wanted at a reasonable price. So here's my impression:
CONS: The onboard buttons are a bit frustrating, sometimes not reacting until the second or third push. The remote control is better, but also unresponsive at times and quite small and cheezy. I wouldn't let this discourage you from making a purchase, though. everything else makes up for it.
PROS: USB port, audio/video in and out, a card reader, a flip and swivel 9" screen, fair volume and a decent weight factor, at $100. you cannot go wrong. There is nothing that will compare with these features at this price.
Oh - and, by the way, there IS a volume control on the unit. They may have added this after previous reviews, but there is definitely a volume control on the right (up) and left(down) sides of the circular multi-function control.
