Intro and Features
In the days of new iPods, Zens and Sansas, TweakTown were sent the latest portable media player from a slightly less well known player in the market, Super Talent. You might be more familiar with Super Talent as a system memory manufacturer and more specifically so for its overclocking products. Super Talent also produces a range of SSD drivers, USB drives, SD and MMC cards, and as it happens MP3 players and PMPs.
From our experience, it's always worth going with the slightly better known and well established brands when you're picking up something like this, though at times we've been proven wrong but don't get fooled into buying something just because it's cheap.
At first look, the Vidego 24T from Super Talent looks like a slim and fairly stylish device in black with some silver highlights.
Starting with the exterior parts you'll see some touch controls on the fascia and on the top is a hold switch style button as well as a small square button. On the right hand side is a mini USB 2.0 connector and at the bottom are the headphone socket and a microSD card slot. There's some text on the back which tells you what the various things are, either with symbols or in plain English.
The Vidego 24T comes with a set of fairly basic white headphones, they sound ok but considering where the headphone jack is located we'd like to have seen an L-shaped connector rather than the fairly short but straight one. The fact that you navigate the Vidego 24T in horizontal mode doesn't mean that it fits your pocket that way, hence the need for an L-shaped headphone connector.
Powering on the Vidego 24T is rather different as the hold switch has three positions; off, on and hold. This means that you have to move it to the on position and then press the square power button next to it. This is the first time we've seen a device that requires the use of two buttons to power apart from some gardening machines, not a good design in our opinion.
It takes a few seconds for the Vidego 24T to kick in and once it powers on you're greeted by a bright 320x240 display that measures 2.4-inches and is capable of displaying 262,000 colours. It's actually rather good and looking at pictures or video on it is a positive experience in that regard.
To the right of the display are the controls and this is where we ran into the first problem. The controls consist of touch sensitive buttons and sometimes they were over sensitive and at other times not responsive enough. The way you use them are far from logical at times, as there's only six buttons in total. You have a back and forward button, a menu and play/pause button inside the silver oval and below that are the volume controls.
To select things you normally use the play/pause button, and oddly enough the menu button takes you back. Another problem is that the buttons respond to long and short presses, well at least they're supposed to, but from our experience with the player this is a bit hit and miss. Some menu options don't seem to be doing anything and the manual can be confusing at the best of times.
There are a lot of different menu options and although the Music option is the one you're most likely to use, there are a fair few other things that the Vidego 24T can do, though with varied degrees of success.
