Seems nice, but how do you get the English language manual pdf?
on 16 May 2012
O.k., much of the workings of the device seem pretty intuitive, but since the (Chinese language) printed manual runs to some 34 pages, there must be stuff in there which it would be good to know.
One particular gripe is that the soft case/bag that comes with it is far too tight a fit. I can't even squeeze the VX570 Touch into the bag without it switching on, and getting it out again is a real struggle. The supplied earphones are, as expected, a bit of a joke. I have not yet tried the TV output, but while I was sort of expecting a micro HDMI socket, what is provided appears to be a 3.5 mm composite video socket. Still, I doubt I would ever want to use the TV output anyway.
I also note that there are firmware updates available at [...] . However, again the information there is in Chinese only, so I don't know how to carry out a firmware update.
With these omissions, what might well be a potential 5 star product deserves no more than 3.
I will be happy to upgrade that assessment if an English language manual and on site English language instructions for firmware upgrades, etc. are provided.
I found media files of all types cutting out after between a few seconds and a few minutes. This despite both power setting being at maximum duration and a full battery charge. I made preparations to return the VX570 Touch, but noting I had a few weeks in which to actually return it, and that no replacement was possible, only a refund, I tried a couple of resets. It now seems to play files without shutting down after short time. However, I have noticed the occasional stutter and skip during playback of FLAK files, so it may yet go back.
