Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
The first thing I noticed was the build quality, it really really suprised me, this is a cheap unit but the build quality is excellent. The instruction manual is very easy to follow, and it (so far) has played every avi file I have transfered on it with zero lag and perfect sound/video sync. I am using it on a 68cm CRT TV and the video looks great. I replaced a media center PC with this tiny unit and it more than does the job. The menu is a piece of cake to use, very straight foward.
Cons:
The fan is a little noisy, but in no way distracting. It would be nice to have a USB port to transfer files from my portable HD, but that's being picky.
Other:
I did a lot of research before buying this particular and from what I have read this is as good (and better) than similer units 4x the price.
Bottomline:
The bottom line is, if you want a PMP enclosure, then this is the one to get. I am seriously considering buying another one for the kids room to replace their DVD player.
