- Packed with features including still/video camera and video recorder, outputs to TV
- Slow to index files, crashes occasionally
The Sorell SV-10 includes an enormous range of features, like direct encoding, FM radio support, and a 1.3 megapixel camera, but a few software issues hold the player back.
Price$ 799.00 (AUD)
The Korean-manufactured SV-10 features 20GB of memory in an attractive silver and grey package, and rolls in a number of features that set it apart from other media players. For a start, it offers an inbuilt 1.3 megapixel camera. It's also capable of recording video at a maximum of 15 frames per second at 640 x 480, or 30fps at 320 x 240 pixels, and has the ability to record FM radio straight to MP3.
The Sorell SV-10 ships with a massive a range of extras including an RCA adapter, USB charge cable, headphones, pouch with belt clip, strap, polishing cloth, and software bundle. A basic manual is also provided, but it is both well laid out and easy to read and understand.
The device is compatible with a wide range of formats, including MPEG 1/2/2.5/layer-3 and WMA audio, along with AVI, ASF, WMV, XviD and DivX (3.x, 4.x and 5.x) video files. Another handy feature is specific support for SMI movie subtitles.
The device measures 116 x 78 x 23mm and weighs a mere 220g. The colour screen measures 3.5" and is clear and bright. Sorell has done a good job in cramming a lot of functions and features into a physically small space. Both line-in and out connectors are on the left-hand face, while power input, USB and headphones are on the right.
On the left-hand side of the screen is a small joystick that controls navigation. It works well--even for those with larger fingers--and the placement of power and function buttons on the right-hand side of the screen means the device can be operated with two hands. LEDs are present to indicate power and charge, and a microphone input sits above the display.
You can plug the device into a TV using the supplied RCA composite adapter and play back media content in your lounge room. The lithium polymer battery lasted for seven hours of video playback and about 13 for music. The SV-10 is backed up by a one-year warranty.
A few little glitches let the machine down. For instance, every time you turn the machine on to play music, it re-indexes your MP3 collection. On a database of 1000 songs, this process took 14 seconds, during which time the device was unusable. It also locked up a couple times during testing, giving us the impression that while the device offers plenty of features, it requires a little more polish.

PCW Evaluation Team
Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.
It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
