This is my first post here and I'm a bit dubious at present to be honest, not sure about the fact that uxcell seem to be involved in running this forum or something, and they seem to get extremely enthusiastic support from some of the admins (as have some other companies who have later been exposed to be frauds, hmmm) anyway....
(If you don't want to read about my past trouble buying mp4 players please go straight to the paragraph after this one!)
I was scammed before last christmas on ebay on 2 nano clone style mp4 players (oh yeah, that's another reason why uxcell seem a bit iffy too, like the scammers they call the products "mp4 players" when it seems they don't actually play mp4, I don't even want to play mp4 but you can see what I'm saying right?) one was from the infamous ugoole and another from a seller poundshop007, both were supposed to be 4gb ugoole's turned out to be 1 and 007's tuned out to be 2. Both of them stopped working within about 5 days of me receiving them (sigh) but I had performed the low level formats by then and ascertained their true volumes. Long story short, I managed to get half the money back from 007 (reasoning was it was half the volume so I should pay half, fair enough but now it don't work anyway and they don't answer my emails and paypal don't want to know since I have already had a dispute about the same item, despite the "1 year manufacturers warranty") but no money back from ugoole (in effect I did receive my money back but this was from royal mail for losing the item in the post when returning to ugooles location in "Preston, Lancashire" yeah right, still wondering how they managed to scam royal mail aswell into "losing" a recorded delivery item!!!) I'm still seething about ugoole (paypal were absolute ****'s about it).
Sorry about that, now the main point, as you can tell I'm sore about these players but having seen this forum it looks like some people have genuinely got good stuff from uxcell. I have looked through uxcell.com but am still not sure and want to hear what people who have actually bought them have to say. I'm looking for a player with the following features:
Stable firmware/operation (want it to last for years, why not?)
4gb, really 4gb (4096MB before format)
Long lasting battery
SD (or other type) memory expansion card slot
2 inch + screen would be big bonus
Does anyone own one from uxcell with the above specs? If so, what is it like to use everyday? I have seen the "Bianca" player supposedly has a good battery life but is only 2gb max but I'd consider that model if nothing else can match it on battery life.
I know I'm asking a lot here but please let me know if you have experience matching what I'm looking for (models such as "Glacier", "Icelander", "Blanco" and any others you could comment on).
Thanks very much!
PS: Almost forgot, can anyone explain what "rock chip" is?
