What all can I say, these trainers are exactly as pictured and fit great. Same Converse quality I've grown to love over the years.

I've been using a couple of these drives for years now for storing Wii backups.
Never had any problems after 100s of hours use, nice compact size and self powers via USB from the Wii

After trying many different types of portable media players over the years I'm so glad to have found this one.
It plays everything I have tried on it perfectly. I mainly play x264 MKV and really struggled to find a reliable portable player. I have now bought 15+ of these for friends and family who all love them.
The menu system could be more impressive but it gets the job done. I've had players in the past that try to find all the media files on the device and list them which then takes ages to move through the menu as they try to give you a preview. This system simply lists the folders and files allowing you to move through the quickly and easily though it doesn't have all the bling I'm used to seeing on my XBMC system.
I've never had any trouble with hard drives, I've used smaller drives 250GB right up to the 1TB drive I'm currently running... just stick to the 9mm thickness that the manual recommends (this is only an issue when looking at larger space drives as some that are larger than 500GB are actually 10mm thick)
All in all a great job and perfect for travelers or keeping kids entertained while vistiting relatives.
I recommend installing the latest firmware from the Sumvision website to allow playback of MKV's with compressed headers and to fix the power light issue some people have been having. This is a 5 min process, copy the file to the drive and select it from the players menu.

I bought this to use with a piece of voice control software on my PC (VoxCommando)
Using this microphone I'm able to shout across the room to control my media PC.
It's very sensitive, sometimes a little too much as it picks up the words being said by the film on the TV so clearly that the film can start controlling itself at times :)

I recommend installing the latest firmware from Sumvisions site [...] as this allows the unit to support MKV's with compressed headers and resolves the powering on issue that some people have. It's a 5 min process, download the file, copy it to the player, power it on and select the bin file from the file menu. Wait a couple of mins and the update is done.
