Packard Bell Ecplise Conclusion

Packard Bell Eclipse 2GB MP4 multimedia player is available for around a hundred Euros. The piano lacquer with aluminium look make the Eclipse look like an expensive multimedia player, but due to its weight it feels like a cheap MP4 player. The case that comes with it is a nice and handy accessory. And if you don't consider 2GB as sufficient storage space can go for the 4GB version for a little bit of extra money. Unfortunately it is not possible to enhance the memory with a memory card.

User friendly multimedia player

The scroll wheel lets you scroll through the menu fast and easy and adjust the volume. The picture quality has some issues and needs improvement. All in all the Packard Bell is a good-looking MP4 player with a somewhat overdone price tag. The user-friendliness is perfect and makes the Packard Bell Eclipse the recommended multimedia player for those who don't want to get swiped of their feet with all the extensive technique of today's multimedia players. So if you like simplicity and ease, go for it!
