Anyone have a link to an Ainol V8000HDC review?

Postby Matt » Mon May 16, 2011 11:25 pm

It sure does look nice. 3.6" would be perfect for watching TV shows (not sure I could handle a full movie on such a small screen).

All the reviews I've found online have been more like sales pitches. If anyone has a link to a proper review I'd appreciate it.

I'm hoping Raz will do a nice video review and show us the screen quality and discuss sound quality for music playback. I'm pretty interested in this device too!

I wonder how this one does in sunlight. I can BARELY see anything on my VX610's screen while sitting in a car(not even in direct sunlight) with the brightness all the way up. Kind of a bummer for roadtrips. Does anyone know if the smaller screens do better in sunlight?

could be right as its part of Ainols 2010 range on their web site
sunlight and most devices are no good, i dont have anything from blackberry to media players that fair well in daylight, im sure there are a few but not sure which, smaller screens will suffer, just think about how good your phones screen is in daylight, it will be more or less the same

Yeah I know most devices don't fare too well in DIRECT sunlight. My blackberry bold actually does the best out of all my devices even in direct sunlight, I can actually see colors on the screen. But I'm really not talking about DIRECT sunlight, I'm referring to riding in a car and being able to see the screen is really all I want it to be able to do.

lol - its a real pain when those "new toy" urges get you, i can see you now, adding it to the basket then stopping and closing the browser, only to open it again and add it to the basket again, each time trying to justify its value, its need and the eternal itch for new gadgets :) luckily i have been to rehab and wear special "anti-buy-now" patches but it aint easy .. anyway, for that price it may just be worth a shot
