Transcend T.Sonic 850

 

I'm not just a reviewer but a consumer as well, and my understanding is that a PMP has to provide four major functions: clear video playback, loud AND clear sound quality, an FM radio with decent enough reception during commutes (that is, with minimal...

The Bottomline The T.Sonic 850 has a lot of features, but when it comes to some critical parameters, it barely delivers. Copying files is a cinch, what with the fast USB 2.0 transfer. The 4GB of space gives plenty of room for your music, images and a...

Transcend T.sonic 850 4 GB Music Player

 

A small update to the T.sonic 840, is the 850 any better?

Light-weight, good FM radio and voice recorder, improved sound quality, value for money

Stiff controls, no multi-tasking options, low-resolution screen

Here's a heavy-metal, updated version of the T.Sonic 820.

Loads of features, Easy navigation, Good clarity screen, Competitive pricing

A bit heavy, Slow file transfers

Not the best MP3 around.

 

While I had mine, it was good for about a year, then some of the little electronic things inside started to act up, and then soon I wasn't able to turn it on at all. I had had mine for a little over a year before it just quit on me. I wouldn't suggest...

The music came out in good quality, pictures were good too

Well, the screen cracked a lot and that didn't help with my being a klutz, the menu was slow to load while playing music, it kept freezing up while I tried to use the radio, the microphone wasn't too good

Consumer review by:

Very good and versatile for the price

 

Getting an mp3 that does has a radio (that you can record off of, by the way), a microphone, a picture viewer, a video player, and an e-book reader for ~50 dollars is a pretty good deal, and i recommend this to people who want a bit more than just ......

This mp3 has good sound quality, does pictures, videos, and e-books. This actually did videos better that i would have expected from something with a 1.5'' screen, and i have watched a full movie on it just to see if i could. Overall, very good

Menus are a bit slow to load when you are playing a song, and you better store this thing in the protective case it comes with because the shiny plastic cover is prone to scratches and smudges

Cheapest Mp3 + video player around

 

Best of the transcend series.. If only the battery was better.

This thing is a cutie. Light weight and elegant, it makes itself worthy to carry around. 8 GB is like tons of space. Toss in all your fav music and you wud still find space for ur videos as well. Sound output is descent

Battery life not upto the mark. Interface especially the file navigator can be irritating sometimes. The earphones coming with the device sucks. probably u need to shell out a few more bucks if u need to hear good
