Packard Bell Eclipse review

T he Eclipse MP4 player is that easy to use you won't be needing the manual that comes with it. It is extremely easy to scroll through the menu by means of the scroll wheel and to confirm a setting by pressing the same wheel. This confirmation can be easily made undone through the Return button found right below the scroll wheel. The songs can be traced through the following functions: 'Artist', 'Album', 'Genre', 'Play lists' and 'All songs'. Somewhat less user-friendly is the way of winding which happens through one and the same speed and it does not happen any faster when you keep pressing the button down longer. If you would like to start halfway through a podcast of about an hour, you will have to wind for a long time to get there.

Packard Bell MP4 player - Earplugs

The sound of the Packard Bell Eclipse can be set to six different styles: Normal, Extra bass, Classic, Jazz, Pop and Rock. The Eclipse MP4 player produces a clear sound through the delivered earplugs, however, the volume range is not too enhanced. The maximum volume could have done with a bit more power. It is easy to adjust the volume by using the scroll wheel.

Packard Bell Eclipse - 2.2-inch monitor

The JPEG pictures the Eclipse reproduces are not really high quality. But on the other hand the image quality of the videos is excellent. The 2.2-inch monitor suffices to show or watch a nice video but to watch an entire movie is a bit inconvenient because of the small monitor. When you show your pictures to family or friends the slideshow function comes in handy.
