    Medion Divx Portable multimedia player (ALDI)

    I saw a new mpeg4 player with 3.5" screen similar to the Iriver PMP. but with 2 distinct features.

    1. copy to 20GB HD via SD slot.
    2. record video directly to medion PMP from TV/video/DVD using AV out.

    I have looked every where for more details then that is given from Aldi but without success. If any knows anymore about this player
    here are a list of things I would really like to know:
    1. what kind of compression will it record ? mpeg1/mpeg4
    2. what are the allowed resolutions for recording ?
    3. what is the max resolution for playing files ?
    4. battery life duration?

    Click here for details from Aldi

    what would you like to know..

    I assume you have seen the player in an aldi leaflet.

    It has the same spec as the MSI Mega view 588 (wo remote)

    I records is ASF format max res 320x 240
    I plays almost any mpeg4 format max res 640x480 (although I have seen it play a slightly higher one)

    battery life 5hrs for video 7.5 hrs for audio.

    Whirlpool have more details (but you need to be a member to view it)

    Well,
    it is a great unit.. if you don't mind the size.

    I don't think you will find as many features for $400

    and you will not have to reencode most if not all of your avi files,
    compared to say the Ipod Video which has a more strict mpeg4 playable format (this was the killer feature for me)

    but this is one feature,
    there are aboue 10 other features

    I comes down what you specifically want out of the player.

    Cheers.
    MP3 yes most definitely

    I will check WMA and get back to you



    I don't know much about the other PMP players I really went for the price.
    I can't see anything beating it, especially with the # of features it supplies.

    I bought one of these sat week ago for a trip to Gippsland for a week for work. Terrific little unit. Coolest feature is you can plug the AV sockets into a tv and record what you are watching, then plug it into the inputs to watch later. Oh, and the Usb on the go file copy...excellent. Plug in a digital camera, or usb key and it copies the files across with no need for a computer.

    Mine seems to last ok...maybe you got a dud battery? It happens. You can always take it back and ask them to replace it

    Oh, well that seems about right...what's wrong with that? Personally I can't listen to 7.5 hours of music straight...

    That's actually decent time for this kind of device, personally I would still like something with longer battery life only because I do a lot of 10+ hour flights and no way to recharge on the plane.

    spare battery

    The batteries are removable

    but it is a custom battery
    It is a cylinder
    The diameter half way between of a AA and a C size battery
    but the length is the almost the height of the player.


    If you could get a spare battery some how from Medion Aust. then you double your battery life.
    But that adds to the overall cost, i guess

    Does any know how long other PMP players last ? Creative, IRiver, Archos.. for example.

    You could try a specialty battery shop.
    There is a battery place here in Perth that I used to deal with a lot (no need to at the moment for me), called Siomar Batteries.
    It never ceased to amaze me the amount of different types and sizes of batteries they had on display, and that was just some of what they sold.
    All you had to do was walk in with a battery, and most of the time they could match it up.
    Presume that you should have some shops over there that are the same.

    Batteries are the biggest scam...

    You probably can buy a battery from a battery specialist - go to the ones in the industrial estates and see what they can do.

    I guess you get what you pay for

    $400 = 5hrs

    >=$600 = 10-15hrs

    You should still be able to get them at Aldi.

    I really, REALLY like mine. Maybe I am just easily pleased...

    Nah, I reckon it is great, especially for the price.

    Yep. It also comes with some bundled software so you can convert wmv's, mpg's etc...works a treat...

    i bought one yesterday at Aldi in Chapel st for only $249 ! brand new unit, they have some more in stock..

    pretty cool unit and plays most divx files.. had probs with a couple of my divx's but so far seems ok... i wish the screen was bigger than 3.5" .. but i suppose will do..

    it's not too bad... i like the AV in/out and record feature... i am gonna try to playback the divx files on my TV tonight and see how it goes..

    Aldi is also bringing a portable dvd player (supports divx) for $189 !
