Registering for the Maplin newsletter and discount vouchers - and using quidco should drop this under £60.

Get a 16 gig memory pen and you can store over 20 films to play on this, if you use software to drop the res you could double that - as you dont need full definition on a 7 inch screen.

A hundred quid for the non B stock - but discounts from quidco and maplin put it under £90.

Worth mentioning this unit is NOT stand alone (it would eat batteries anyway) and needs a 12v (car or battery pack) or 220v (normal home electric plug) - and comes with cables for both.

The REALLY big picture (but it lets you see the connectors)...


Bought one few weeks ago and took it back next day. Poor build quality and very poor signal quality. The smaller 3.5 inch one they do picked up every channel and had great picture. This one struggled to get 5 channels at the same location .

Not so good tv with portable aerial but great with outdoor one. Media use is excellent plays divX xvid from sd card and usb drive, also has output so you can link up to your tv to play your movies for hdd.

I bought one of these in mexico. The performance of the tuner is not so good , and the DIVX playback works on SOME movies only. SOme DIVX movies seem to run in fast forward. Remote functions are clumsy and many functions seem to not work like FastForward and Reverse on DIVX movies. My avi files from My Kodak Digital camera do not play back at all.

As for 16X 9 movies which I have tried many none seem to fill the frame vertically . I have tried on both PAL and NTSC modes, and it is useless! I am looking for a 4x3 video to test but I think it will be the same. I have tried various resolutions at 16x9 and no difference.

The companmy that is listed to be the importer and responsible for the guarantee is out of business, and I would like to see if there is a firmware upgrade for this unit. Mine has the name Jenko, which I always read to be Junkco
