I can't fault the hardware but...
on 9 May 2013
I can't fault the hardware but why the heck did they have to fill so much of the internal memory with useless apps?
From what I've read on the web, the only way to uninstall some of the useless apps is to "root" the player - but this would invalidate any guarantee, plus - their doesn't seem to be a rooting app for the UK version of this player, and MOST IMPORTANTLY - if you did manage to root the player and found you'd uninstalled the wrong App - you don't have a backup disc to reinstall it from.
(In the box (when I bought this) was a voucher (serial) for Sygic GPS navigation software (which has to be downloaded from "Google Play."
After downloading and installing Sygic software, the serial number was repeatedly refused by their server with some useless/meaningless "server-side glitch" error. The error wasn't caused by me typing in the wrong serial - I accidentally typed in the wrong serial once and the server said it was an invalid serial.
In short, I suspect that Sygic simply does not want to provide their software for free - so if you thought the free Sygic GPS navigation was.a nice extra, think again.)
