The first and most annoying problem I have with this product is the touch screen features. Why do we always have to configure it on the first use?
That issue also led to it hanging/crashing at times which I find really irritating!!. Being unable to control how the touch screen feature behaves now made me mistakenly change the language to Chinese. With no reset feature in place..I'm stuck with an mp3 player that doesn't respond to my touches plus its in Chinese now so I can't even change it.
I feel I kinda wasted 40 quid on this...I really do like this player but I HATE it NOW

Pretty Good-But Little Side Note: July 30 2009
By J. Willis - Published on Amazon.com
This mp3 is a pretty good mp3. Only $70 for an 8gig touchscreen. The graphics are pretty good too. When I first opened it half of the keys on the touchscreen wouldnt work. I was soo mad and was ready to send it back for a refund. Then i saw a little note in the corner of one of the instruction paqckets i got:

"Before using this product, initial touchscreen adjustment is required.
- Press 'settings' option on the main menu, enter into submenu.
- Press 'System' option on the submenu and choose 'Touch Calibration',
use pen [i use finger] to proofread cross center for 3 tims."

This totally made the touchscreen work perfectly! Do this before you get mad like i did! Very good picture, vid and music quality. While playing a song you can go thru a list of all your songs and pick out one which is much easier than going thru a million songs to get to one like some of my previous mp3s. I would very much recommend this.

Does what it's supposed to do Nov. 15 2009
By Mark - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Ok so I was looking for a decent portable media player with a decent amount of storage without having to fork out $200. I chose to take a chance on this one.

So the first thing you do is turn it on and start messing with the interface - Verdict? The touchscreen does it what's supposed to - lets you tell the thing what to do. It isn't anywhere close to what you get with the I-Touch. One of the little annoying quirks is if you are watching a video and want to stop that video and do something else like say, watch another video, listen to a song, read an "E-Book" (text document), or look at the picture, while it can be done, the little back arrow in the far right bottom corner is the least responsive button on the screen. It just doesn't want to do it. You end up having to hit it a bunch of times and then it works. Sometimes I resort to just turning the player off and back on which effectively gets back to the menu but it's annoying.

OK so now you start loading the thing up and seeing how it does with your media. Firstly the little ear buds that come with it? Junk - get some decent ones with the rubber cones on them.

Mp3s: It plays them - they sound good. It supports Play lists, shuffling, and repeat.

Videos: It plays Avi's encoded to 320 x 240 with the DIVX or XVID Codec. I use Allok Video Joiner to do that (it's used to put together clips into one video but if you just run one through it will convert it only and I can get some really nice looking results at Medium quality and they come out at about 200-400MB depending for a full length film or concert DVD. For me, this implementation is far better than Apples measly MP4 support only approach.

Photo's: I haven't messed with this too much but it will look at them.

E-Book: This is a really cool feature that I use a bit. It will read books but you have to save them as Text. I was having alot of trouble with it just seeing the 1st 3rd of the book and I saved them as UNICODE and it worked.

So now that I'd had discovered all this I decided to peak at the battery life icon. They tell the truth, about 5 video hours, 10 for music.

All in all I love it. It lets me listen to Music, watch Videos, and read books all from a little hand held device. It sounds great (with a decent set of Headphones or Ear Buds), the screen looks good and once you learn all the quirks, it will handle all your files. I don't leave home without it.

Stuff I would like: External Volume Control and Skip Controls for the music, better touch screen, Wifi (for this money, I know, rediculous to even ask, but someday...)

Almost forgot: I've used it now for a couple weeks with no problems before I wrote this. I wanted to wait until I have more than just a first impression.

Very Much A Budget Player March 31 2010
By Veil_Lord - Published on Amazon.com
I got this for my wife as a small gift. She wanted something with a bigger screen than her Sansa to watch her videos on. I think we paid maybe $50-$60 for it at the time. The unit is decent, but very obviously a budget device.

First the good stuff. The screen is big and easy to see and the touch screen is pretty cool on something so inexpensive. The player uses a standard mini-USB connector so I can charge the device for her with the same chord I use for my PDA and my MP3 player. I also really liked the included software. While it's not as user friendly as the software that came with her SanDisk Sansa Fuze, it has almost never choked on a video file. The Sansa software was big, cumbersome, and often failed halfway through a conversion. The Sylvania software has failed on a total of two weirdly compressed files off the Internet. It can convert most MPG and AVI files without issue.

Now the bad. The touch screen is nice, but often unresponsive. You'll sometimes have to tap a spot repeatedly to get a reaction or push down really hard. Menu items are sometimes not clear, but you can usually work your way through finding things. The overall construction of the device feels a little flimsy, but isn't horrible. The worst thing though is the battery life. Brand new the thing maybe gets 2 hours of run time before it goes dead. The battery recharge takes hours. That's really just not good enough for something with a built in battery. The less capacity, the more charges, and the sooner the battery dies. I personally couldn't take that charge length, but my wife uses it lightly so she can tolerate it.

I'd suggest this if you have kids who want to feel kind of like they have an iPod Touch, but where you think they'll break one of those or just plain don't have the money to spend. If you want a top of the line player with the features this one has, you'll be paying more for it.

Update 2/23/12
----------------
We just got a Windows 7 64-bit PC. Windows reports that it can find no driver for this player. I find this a little odd since it should function essentially like a USB drive, but regardless the computer cannot access it. We can still use a XP laptop and it works fine there. I can't verify this player won't work on *any* Windows 7 machine, since I only have access to the one, but I wanted to put this up as a warning just in case. If anybody has got it to work under Win 7, please post a comment for people thinking about getting it. Thanks.

Not quite what I expected June 2 2009
By Molly M. Cunningham - Published on Amazon.com
I found this mp3 player on sale for $50 at a local store and thought what a great deal. I only had it for a week and the screen went blank so you couldn't see any of the buttns. The battery didn't last as long as I had wished and there was no way of organizing the songs on the player. It put them in folders by artist and in the order you uploaded them. So they were hard to find since they weren't in alphabetical order. I played it on random mode but it always seemed to play the first few folders all the time

Not bad at all for the price Aug. 7 2011
By Shadee - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I was wondering about this product since it had such a low rating and so many bad reviews.
Then I noticed a pattern. Not all of them but a large number of the bad reviews were about half the buttons on the touch screen not working. Then there was a good review which mentioned that the device has a screen calibration function which the manual clearly states you should use to set it up properly before use. I took the gamble and ordered the product, the price was decent for $39,99 and so far I've had no problems whatsoever. I like that this player lets you fast forward and back through songs too instead of just skipping them, my previous one didn't do that. I haven't used the video function yet so I can't tell you anything about that.
