Mr. Dvorak suggests that the X2 may be the first player that can give Appleis iPod a solid run for its money. From the review:
I have used the new MEGA view $399 device and Iim impressed. Iim not easily impressed, either.
This device, which does everything the Apple iPod does, also allows you to use its PVR (personal video recorder) capabilities to record and play video. You can also drop your digital photos into the unit to create a slide show for friends and it also has a built-in FM radio (which you can also record from) and a digital voice recorder. But itis the TV downloading that fascinates me.
Thereis more in Mr. Dvorakis original story.
The MEGA VIEW 561 weighs 8.5 ounces (the iPod runs up to 6.4 ounces), has a 20GB hard drive, a 3.5-inch display (the iPodis display is 2-inches), and a bank of output jacks for its various multimedia functions.
