Pros

  • Small, easy-to-use, video playback

Cons

  • Tiny screen, navigation can be tricky

Bottom Line

A small screen and tricky navigation makes this tiny media player ideal for those with small hands, but difficult for the rest of us.

Would you buy this?

The minuscule Astone Xinc AV measures a tiny 7x 4 x 2cm and weighs just 40g. Yet the size is deceptive; the small metallic and pearl-white unit has everything you would expect from a larger media player.

The Xinc AV player is compatible with common audio formats, including MP3, WMA and OGG, and video formats including MPEG-4, DivX and AVI. It can also handle JPEG photos and text files, and can serve as a mass storage device to help carry files around. An FM radio tuner is included, and it can record audio directly into WMA format. A navigation pad and basic set of buttons makes the small device relatively straightforward to operate, but it's tricky for those with big fingers.

We tested a 512MB model, but the device is also available in other capacities. All models feature internal batteries, which can be charged via a USB connection. We found battery life extended to about 12 hours in our tests.

The Xinc AV ships with a huge range of extras including a plastic cover, belt loop, USB adapter, headphones and cables.

The tiny, postage-stamp-size colour screen displays 262,000 colours. The display is clear and bright enough to view outside in sunny conditions, but the small dimensions make it difficult to watch movies. The audio quality is acceptable, but we detected some cracks and pops at high volumes.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
