so i got 2GB Glacier. its not bad, but not that great either. MP3 playback itself is good, only if you expect more of it you can be slightly disappointed. Not that I would be (too much) I expected somewhat cheap player
1. the player doesn't handle the big screen very well. you can see that even with file browsing and normal operations. playing video makes it bit worse as you can see the screen being constantly refreshed from bottom. the bigger the resolution the worse
2. file browsing is slow - it takes few seconds to load root folder (when there is around 15 directories). actually about the same time as inactivity and if you didnt press the button correctly you can be taken back to mp3 playback screen
3. with quiet MP3's you can hear some noise when doing something else (adjusting settings...), probably interferrence with circuitry, in background. when playing radio the circuitry noise is nasty
these problems aren't major, but if I wanted to watch video on the player should I go for Palladium?
I read somewhere that Palladium player has different chip and what not. how is it? is the video smooth? is the screen handled well? how does the battery last? from what i gathered it lasts about 2-3 hours with video and 8hrs MP3, which would be ok. Is it so?
