Eco Media Player
Just received my Baylis Eco Media Player. Great service! Very intriguing gadget and works better than I expected. I suppose I thought a windup player would be a bit of a compromise, but I really needed something that could travel with me (I do a lot flying...).
This sounds so good, think I will dump my Samsung and use the Baylis one full time. The earphones supplied are an "in ear" type that are by far the most comfortable and just sound amazing (maybe I should try them in my Samsung...).
The supplied software (CD) is slightly dissappointing, you have to install it manually, but the video conversion utility works well enough - but they have not supplied any ripping utility to convert audio CD's into mp3 tracks. However Windows Media Player already has this function so, hey, why am I being picky...
The styling and body are much nicer than Ecodigital's photos - I was pleasantly surprised by the smooth all over matt black - kind of velvety - feel. Classy, but a bit chunky, it does still fit in my shirt pocket.
I have wound it for a couple of minutes, and it just seems to keep playing, remarkable! (Have not yet tried watching a full movie).
Overall, very impressed, especially the sound quality - awesome. Would recommend.
