iPods are great, if you’re prepared to shell out a large sum of cash. Which might seem a bit silly, seeing as all they’re supposed to do is allow you to listen to music, stream radio, watch video clips and view
photographs. The Sansui MP4 media player can do all of these things, at a fraction of the price – making it a much easier purchase to justify.
It looks great and the slim build with black, glossy finish and metallic silver scroll wheel contrasts beautifully and provides a focal point for navigation through the device. There’s also a matching silver rocker button on the side of the device that grants access to volume control. The 1.8” colour LCD display really pops, and detail is so crisp and clear, it’s easy to forget that it’s smaller than two inches.
It’s easy to get going with this device, as well. Using USB 2.0 technology, it’s a simple matter of treating this device like any other USB storage unit you might have – create your playlists of music, photos and videos and simply plug the device into your computer to sync and transfer all content, quickly and effortlessly. To do this you might want to use something like Windows Media Player or iTunes – both work equally well with this device. The Sansui MP4 player utilises ID3 tag support for song information, so you’ll be able to access song names, album names and artist information, which allows you better playlist control.
Small, slim and compact, this is a device that’s perfect for taking your music wherever you go – to the gym, out for a run, to the office, or even lying on the couch indulging in some audio therapy. In terms of sharing, it’s great for using to show off your holiday snaps, share your home video clips with your friends, or catch up on your series viewing while you wait for your appointment to arrive. You can listen to e-books or load it up with
podcasts – the uses really are endless.
It’s durable, yet lightweight and is totally able to withstand the bumps and knocks that come with every day use, which is perfect as you’ll probably find excuses to use this device every single day. It has an impressive storage capacity, and the 2GB unit is capable of holding up to 6 hours of video or 500 songs – which is enough content to keep you entertained for significant periods of time.
If you need more than 2GB of storage, the Sansui MP4 player is also available in 4GB and 8GB variants for a nominal increase in price.
