I can’t say I’m too familiar with Maxian, but I do like the look of their M800 media player, which is set to hit Europe later this year.
The slimline player (just 17mm in thickness) features a Sharp-manufactured 4.3-inch WQVGA screen and supports video recording from a TV or other source to the 30GB drive. Or you can transfer files across in a choice of AVI, MPEG, ASF, WMV, DAT and VOB formats, which can be viewed on the player or elsewhere via the TV-out. It’s also good for audio recording and playback.
The company is due to release the player in both the Far East and Euriope simultaneously in both black and white, with a price of around 325 Euros (£219) being quoted.
