Following on from Goodmans’ GPDR1 budget video player, the GPDR40 is the company’s higher-end addition to the PVP market. The GPDR40 Personal Entertainment System has 40GB of storage on its hard drive, which is enough room for up to 200 hours of TV recording. This can thankfully be done directly from the TV, and there’s also an SD/MMC slot for memory expansion and data transfer. As you’d expect, the PVP can be used for MP3 playback and picture viewing, and there’s also a calendar that you can synch with Outlook. The colour screen is 3.6 inches and the unit can be plugged into the mains or powered using the battery. It’ll be available on the high street from January, with prices still TBC.
