Customer Reviews
Good value, but videos need to be converted,
For the money, these are a good basic set of screens. I agree with the review above regarding the menu system and the slave screen. I tried various formats on it, and have had the most success with mpeg2 explicitly setting the size and a lowish bit rate. I've used Miksoft's Mobile Media converter. Here's the ffmpeg command its using: ffmpeg -y -i "input.m4v" -vf scale=480:234 -f mpeg -vcodec mpeg2video -r 25 -b 700k -acodec libmp3lame -ac 2 -ar 44100 -ab 128k "output.mpg"

I bought this, taking the risk that it could be awful! Seriously what can you expect for this price! It arrived .. (ok it was white and not black as I ordered but hey I can live with that). Its simplicity itself to setup and it looks nice and smart The interface is VERY basic, graphically it looks like it fell out of an 80's arcade machine, but it has played every movie file I've thrown at it, and the quality is supprisingly good. I've noticed that the Slave screen is slightly poorer display resolution but its hardly noticeable. If you want a simple and cheap option for playing movies for the kids, this is a brilliant option!!!!
