I started out with the original Eclipse 180 -- the one that looks rather like an Ipod but with a clover-leaf selector instead of Apple's donut. The first one of these had a problem -- put too many MP3 files on it and the internal tables overflow and you can't access 'em... Sigh.
But this limitation appears to have been fixed (?) with the latest microcode/firmware release. Or at least it's different. Anyway, I got a second (cloverleaf) one that appears to work better... This is the one with the "flashing solar eclipse" logo. (The original one just flashed the name.)
So then I found this "Touch" screen version -- the "T-180" "small square" version that you see here -- available locally and decided to try it out from that source 'cuz I could return it. That was an important advantage, as it turned out.
This Touch Screen version simply doesn't work. In fact, IT IS TERRIBLE!!!
I started off with a smapling of my MP3 files organized into folders/albums. On the non-touch player version these folders/albums are recognized. You scroll down through a folder and select an "album" or a piece of music. I have mine set up with about 8-16 or so selections per folder/album, and -- for testing -- only about a dozen or so albums.
But The Brain-dead "touch" screen unit "flatens" all the files, so I am left with trying to find one file (or the start of an album) from among the total of 16 (selections/album) TIMES 12 (albums), or a total of 16 x 12 selections. That means that I must scan through a total of 192 selections in just my "testing" setup!Read more ›
1. IT IS COUNTERFEIT. Eclipse confirmed this for me. There is no brand name stenciling on the product or anywhere in the box or packaging. This is plenty of reason to not by it, but if you're interested in more reasons. . . .
2. There isn't a USB port. I can't recharge it.
3. There isn't a USB port. I can't download/upload files. I CAN'T PUT ANYTHING IN IT.
4. The screen came more scuffed than the one I've had for 6 + months.
5. I wasn't able to unlock it. No indications in the directions. I went through all permutations with buttons. If there was directions, maybe, but . . . I'll get to that.
5. It comes with one fewer button. I don't know how to operate it because. . . .
6. It did not come with directions. But for another product.
7. Further evidence that it is counterfeit: When I first bought these at Walmart, the packaging was extensive and professional. This thing's packaging was a miniature black and white printout in a crappy box.
8. Finally: The screen SHATTERED after pressing on it with minimal pressure. I have one of these--an actual Eclipse, not this counterfeit piece of garbage. I've pressed harder and had it for 6 + months and this has never happened.
1. The touch screen, it seems to be a plastic film on top of display and there is a gap between. The film bends when I touch it with sound I guess that the film get stuck with then peel off from display. The response of touch screen is OK, but far more poor than the touch screen that I have used before.
2. It has decent 4GB internal memory, but when browse the music, it lists all the songs, without option to choose playlist or folder first. The small screen can only display 3 songs at a time, it's very hard to find a song.
Almost none of the features work, but the radio does seem to work. Only 13 bucks, but still a horrible waste of money, and an even more horrible waste of time (2 hours just to be sure I wasn't missing something).
Once you connect it to your computer, most people, including myself, inadvertently download all the optional bundled software they've included because seems to be a part of the wonderful free software they promised and/or hinted about in the advertisements. I know this is true because suddenly, within hours after loading that software my computer is infected with that "Deals" advertisement at the bottom of web pages, also called "offers4U" in its lower left corner.
[And for the record, the only thing that I found to get rid of that particular malware is "Malware bytes", and even the free version will get rid of it. I got infected with that once before after downloading free stuff from CNET and learned all about it.]
These companies buy huge boxes of worthless electronics like this thing, for pennies on the dollar and make a profit from them; but, they make their real money every time someone clicks on the "Deals" advertisement they bundle up and lure people into downloading.Read more ›
