Well as i have mentioned before, i eventually came across this site after being a lil bit unwilling to pay a premium for 'larger named' branded players eg Cowon, Archos etc.
So i dip my toe into the great lake of Chinese mp4 players.
I ordered the S:flo on a Sunday, and 6 working days later it arrived at my work. Now that was seriously fast, much better than i expected, and arrived in excellent condition.
The exterior packaging was well presented with very professional looking style, and it didnt take me long to crack thru the layers and fish out all the extras and the player itself.
Well, the S:flo.......i wasnt sure what i was expecting, but i wasnt expecting the immediate feel of "wow, this thing is solid!" Such an excellent size and weight, and i was VERY impressed with this.
The UI is easy to navigate as a complete beginner to touch screens, and within minutes i had sussed out the major menu functions, and was pleased to find a lack of useless widgits or addons.
The screen seems responsive and looks sharp, if a little plain, but navigating my music was no problem.
The sound itself i would descibe as 'very good', with some good EQs to play with. I couldnt get a decent seal with the supplied Brainwavz, and consequently i wasnt keen on their sound. However hook up the S:flo to my own 'phones i get a sound which almost seems to be a match for my iRiver Clix2 (which now feels very plasticky in comparison).
The video playback is fine, i wouldnt use it as a dedicated player, and i assume its not meant to be, but its fine to pass the odd 30mins watching some AVIs. I am still experimenting on whats best to convert to for best playback, some work fine straight from my PC (axxo, some tv dls etc) and others seem to struggle / desync (some tv dls eg my fav twoandahalfmen
Oh and the supplied pouch is absolutely fine
So, overall -
i) v quick postage, hope i get the same speed on future orders!
ii) solid feeling player
iii) very good sound quality, and decent enough video
I would recommend this player to people who wish an excellent value for money mp4 player, and for who touchscreen is a must.
Thanks for reading!
PS i also got a Fiio E5 delivered in a week, and its a good match for the S:flo.
