mik61, Lot of people seem to be having problems with their Glaciers and as avideo player it is pretty ordinary at 10 frames per second.
Depending on what you are looking for some other options are a 2GB Meizu M6 off trademe for around $200. Much better build quality, sound etc. 2.4 inch LCD avi video @ 20fps. Customizable firmware with regular updates, all up a very slick player. I have a 4GB version.
Another alternative is the Meizu M3 smaller screen (same as ipod 1.5 inch LCD 176x32) all the features of the M6 but you will get a 4GB M3 for just under $200 shipping included. I just picked one up from houseofdap.com where I purchased the M6.
Otherwise check trademe for Rockchip players there are a few. Not near as good as the Meizu but much better than the Action chip players like the one you are looking at.
My 2 cents.
