Almost three weeks ago, I bought this media player off Amazon. I’d been wanting to watch movies and tv shows while away from home and possibly on remote locations, and AT&T’s confiscatory prices discouraged me from just buying a smartphone to replace my defective Lenovo Netbook. (Which does not connect to the web. AT&T says it’s a Lenovo/hardware problem. Lenovo says it’s an AT&T problem. But that’s a different story.)
I wanted a player to play movies, and this player does play movies. It also plays music, and lets me view pictures. Beautifully.
Did I mention that the Pro Ebiz plays movies? But, that’s all it will do with movies. The fast forward button on the movie player? Restarts whatever video file you’re watching, instead of actually fast forwarding. The rewind button? Well, it does the exact same thing. I guess I should count myself fortunate that I can pause and restart the player, even if the buttons are marked the opposite of what they should read for each of those actions.
The Pro Ebiz NEW 16gb 3″ TFT Touchscreen Mp3 / Mp4 / Mp5 Player: maybe worth the $75 and shipping I paid for it, but the missing functions certainly mean it is not the $200 value the seller claims on Amazon. Buyer beware. Me, I’m watching an episode of Band of Brothers for the fourth time. Maybe this time I’ll finish it.
