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 Review

 

From a standpoint of a T.sonic 840 user, there is nothing in the 850 that will convince you to move to it. For anyone looking for a decent-value-for-money media player, the T.sonic 850 fits the slot perfectly.

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

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
