My teenage stepson wanted a new mp3 player and saved up his own money for it. He wanted my opinion on three that he had narrowed down to. The Trio was one of them. After reading the only previously posted review he was a bit leery, but after I read the review it was clear to me that the reviewer's disappointment came from the wrong expectations and it was worth trying. A simple 5 minute research on this product proved that it was all we wanted, and nothing the previous reviewer wanted. We ordered one and are very glad that we did!. The 4.3 " screen is nice and big, and crystal clear. Keep in mind this is a MEDIA PLAYER, and that is what you get. If you are looking for a stop watch, or a scientific calculator, or even a PDA to load additional software on, then buy one of those items. Which brings me to my next point, the reason the Ebook feature doesn't read PDF files is because PDF's are Adobe proprietary formats and require Adobe reader. The two headphone jack was appealing to my stepson as he and his little sister could watch a movie together on an upcoming flight, and this is exactly what they did. We loaded all his MP3's on to the Trio as well as 5 movies and they all played flawlessly. In short, someone's lack of research doesn't mean the product is faulty. I've ordered a Trio for myself to replace my Ipod Nano, and will be ordering at least 2 more for gifts. At this price this is a great buy!!!

Those who think this is a great player may not have a really good one to compare it
to.
I own a PSP 4.3" screen and a Creative Zen Vision Wide 4.3".
With the very same video file loaded and played back side by side, it is obvious
the Mach Speed Trio is not in the same class in performance.
In the compairison the lcd screen is much darker even with the brightness setting
at its highest.
The video playback is choppy/jittery, it looks like skipping.
I agree with the other review the software is like one of those chinese Ipod
knockoffs, cheesy/generic.
Yes its lower priced then some of the other high end ones, but Iv'e seen better
video on some less expensive ones.
To me its a $90 mp3 player because I don't want to strain my eyes watching videos
on this.
The cartoons preloaded dont look as bad as movie video because there's no shadows
and dark places in cartoons, just bright colors.
Shop and compare in person some players in a store before buying this.
Oh, and the manual specs say there is an FM tuner.
Not one that I can find.

I was looking for a video player for under $125, and found this at a local electronics store. While the price is great, the player itself, unfortunately, isn't quite up to what I was expecting.

The first thing you'll probably notice is that the screen is huge compared to the average MP3 player, so that's definitely a plus. The unit is also heavy, which may be a pro or con, depending on your needs. Unfortunately (and this is my principle reason for returning it), unless you're in a dark room and have it tilted at a specific angle, the video is exceptionally dark, almost to the point of being unviewable. Furthermore, I'm not sure what the FPS on this model is, but all the video I saw was choppy (I tested on 4 separate videos). The sound was loud enough and fine for me, but I'm not exactly an audiophile, so your mileage may vary. I can't really speak about the other included apps because I never got a chance to use them.

Ultimately, if you don't have a lot of money to spend, and don't mind that you'll probably have to hold the item at an angle, in a dark room, to clearly see the video, then the Trio isn't a terrible choice. I intend to use mine at the gym, so I need something with a better viewing angle and brightness (I've decided to instead go with the Nationite OS-72).

I found this MP3 player on sale at an FYE store in my local mall for $70. Since my job requires that I spend long periods of time in a moving vehicle, I decided to buy it and have been quite satisfied with its playback of MP3s. The sound quality is great when put through a car stereo or headphones, however the built-in speaker is very rudimentary. You can tailor the sound quality to your liking with the Trio's on-board equalizer. I found that particular feature to be very useful. Another nice addition is the micro SD/transflash slot on the side. Since I already have an 8GB micro SD card, I was able to double the unit's storage capacity without any additional investment.

Overall, the touch screen quality is okay. Being a sub-$100 8GB media player with a 4.3" touch screen, I wasn't expecting an iPod Touch. If you're planning on using the Trio primarily for picture viewing or watching videos, you might want to invest in a higher-end unit. It's not that the video quality is horrible, but it is certainly far from being the sharpest playback I've seen. My pictures seem to load rather slowly, though I didn't spend much time exploring that feature.

From a connectivity standpoint, I was impressed by the Trio. There is no software to install -- just plug it into your computer's USB port then drag-and-drop your media files. I have a new machine running Windows 7 and experienced absolutely no difficulties in getting all my files to transfer. Windows Explorer treats this media player simply as a removable drive, though the instruction manual claims you can use Windows Media Player to sync your library via that program.

For the money, this was a great purchase.
