Torquay have them, just checked :-)

Treat yourself to the iPod Touch instead.

Be aware that the screen is very low resolution - 480x240 will look extremely pixelated at 9".

Does anyone have one of these? Are they ok? I'm not good with dimensions (my OH says 8 inches, do i believe him?) or pixels. Does it look ok? I have reserved one but it says its not returnable unless faulty.

Thanks - I've managed to reserve one for my Dad.

Some in Bolton (Middlebrook)

None in Town Centre

I have a reservation code for Town Centre if some one wants it.

Not getting it as it doesn't do divx/mpeg4

I picked mine up in Glasgow this evening.

The description on the Argos site says that the player can be operated using a 12v car battery. What it doesn't tell you is that the player runs at 9v and requires a car adapter which is not supplied. This is only referred to once you read the manual. This is missleading, Argos.

Dissapoining - fortunately I have a multi voltage car adapter lying around - this will catch a lot of people out - beware!! Also the one supplied as part of the "special offer" half price accessory kit will likely be a 12v one, so would not work with this player - I did not buy this but best check before you buy!

Otherwise very happy with the performance of the player, especially for the price. But dissapointing Argos for not including an in car adapter.

edi said in an earlier post his came with the adapter:thinking:

mine didnt either and its a different design to the argos picture.

mine has the speakers on the front of the unit not under the screen and the bottons are in a different layout.

in the argos description it doesnt even mention the swivel screen so i think they are describing the one in the picture not the one i received.

anyway very pleased with it whatever ive got:)

good screen and the battery lasts over 3 hours which is better than advertised.
