3. Operation

In 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 fast result. 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.

This player has a very good looking interface with allot of functions. It features a music and video player, a picture viewer, FM radio, an e-book reader, a voice recorder and games (but we didn't find any installed).

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 using the build-in file explorer you can listen to your music by artist/album/genre. The same applies in video playback and picture viewing. The controls are touch sensitive and the navigation is very easy. < and > to go left or right, the M for going a step back and the Play/pause for going a step forward. The -/+ keys are used for volume regulation.

The sound quality is average even at high bitrates (320bps) but we didn't find that annoying. The build-in equalizer has 5 presets and you can also create your own preset. We sticked with the "normal" preset since it was the most pleasant to our ears.

The 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 video in order to fit to its 4:3 screen resulting in a distorted picture. But what the heck, this is just for viewing some videos not your entire movie collection.

In the other hand the photo previewing is awesome! The pictures have excellent colors and you can store pictures of any size, the player will downscale them for fitting in the screen.

The 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 reader can only read simple text files, but don't worry there are many books online in simple text format.

 
The reader has a slight problem in word wrapping...

Concerning the games we didn't find anything installed in the device nor in the included CD, even the manual doesn't have a reference to the games.
