order to turn on the player we have to set the On/Off/Hold switch to
the middle (On), which proved a bit tricky since the switch can easily
slip in the 'Hold' position. Afterwards we press the power button next
to the switch for a few seconds. I wonder why they made so complicated
to power on...
We loaded the device with some mp3s, videos, pictures
and texts in order to test it. To fully load the 1GB of internal memory
took us approximately 9,5 min. over a USB2.0 connection which is a very
As the device is activated we see the keys light up
in bright red color and we are welcomed with Super Talent's logo on the
screen. After a short moment and the "Building Database" message we
have access to the main menu.

features a music and video player, a picture viewer, FM radio, an

The music, video and photo playback is very good but
basic. You can't create playlists but you can overcome this obstacle by
separating your music in different folders (e.g. by albums). Also by

video playback isn't great and the motion is jumpy due to the fact that
it plays video at 20 fps. The player comes with a very simple PC
software for converting your videos in order to be playable
from the device. A negative point is that it stretches a 16:9

But what the heck, this is just for viewing some videos not your entire

excellent colors and you can store pictures of any size, the player

FM tuner has all the basic radio functions plus a record function in
order to save your favorite show or some songs you like.
The record function enables you to take notes on the fly or even record an interview. Don't
expect from the e-book reader to display your pdf files. This little

books online in simple text format.
The reader has a slight problem in word wrapping...
