Brando’s 2GB SOAP MP4 Player reeks of iPod

Posted by Parth Barot on January 25, 2007


There’s iPod knockoffs, and then there’s the SOAP MP4 Player. This little gem unsurprisingly comes in black and glossy white flavors, boasts an unmistakable scroll wheel and stark white earbuds, and throws a few curves around the edges in a futile attempt to disclose its true inspiration. Furthermore, this device even rips a chunk of its name from another knockoff, providing two times the unoriginal fun, but sadly, we can’t find a direct link to Samuel L. Jackson. Nevertheless, this 2GB PMP plays nice with MP3, MP4, WMA, WMV, ASF, and WAV, and features a built-in FM tuner / voice recorder, seven pre-set equalizer modes, USB 2.0 connectivity, 1.8-inch OLED display, rechargeable Li-ion battery, and support for a plethora of languages. So if you’re looking to impress your clueless friends, or you just want a curvaceous 1G nano with a fancy screen a few extra niceties, you can pick this unit up now for $99.

Dealzmodo: $13 1GB MP3 Player

Posted by Parth Barot on January 23, 2007


Technically this deal isn’t only good today, but it still earns the Dealzmodo moniker. The Yoto B100 is a barebones USB 2.0 MP3 player that will only run you $13 if you are willing to do a bit of translation. No confusing rebates or discounts, just good old renminbi to dollar conversion.
But I don’t know…I prefer my Chinese OEM gadgets to have that “if it were made in America we’d be sued by now” vibe.

LG’s BH100 Super Multi Player

Posted by Parth Barot on January 23, 2007

Well this is more like it. After waiting forever between the initial announcement and first retail availability of the first wave of HD disc devices, LG’s BH100 really rocketed to the shelves, and has just participated in its first unboxing (that we’ve heard of) mere weeks after the announcement at CES. We’re a little disconcerted by that big front-and-center dent on the box, but the unit itself looks just dandy, and gadgetaholic promises a full review in the coming days. But that’s not what you’re here for, you just wanted to see this little guy ripped from his Styrofoam cocoon and flap his little Red and Blue wings, so hit the read link for the whole event. Fly, BH100, fly.

JVC launches 5 Everio HDD camcorders and PC-less DVD writer

Posted by Parth Barot on January 23, 2007


First caught wind of JVC’s new line-up of Everios at CES. However, in the product onslaught to come, we somehow overlooked their new line-up of hard disk drive-based video cameras and accessories hitting Japan in February and destined for the US shores and beyond. So taking a step back, we bring you five new Everios: the GZ-MG575 (pictured) , GZ-MG555, GZ-MG275, GZ-MG255, and GZ-MG155. All five models pack a single CCD as opposed to the trio of sensors found in their MG505 and GZ-HD7 hi-def cam. That cut in quality comes at a discounted price though. The 40GB MG575 (¥140,000 / $1,155) and 30GB MG555 (¥130,000 / $1,072) both feature a 5.37 megapixel CCD (for 4 megapixel videos or 5 megapixel stills), 10x optical zoom lens, 2.7-inch LCD, and built-in LED light. The 40GB MG275 (¥120,000 / $990) and 30GB MG255 (¥110,000 / $907) take things down a notch with a 2.18 megapixel CCD (for 1.23 megapixel videos or 2 megapixel stills) and 10x optical zoom. Bringing up the rear is the 30GB MG155 which costs ¥90,000 (about $742) and touts a wee 1.07 megapixel CCD and monster 32x optical zoom. All models bring SD card support and a direct-to-DVD button for PC-less writing to DVDs when connected over USB to the optional ¥25,000 (about $206) CU-VD20 DVD accessory. Check the pink MG155 and a not-to-scale CU-VD20 after the break.

Sharp unveils 8.28-megapixel 1/2.5-inch CCD sensor

Posted by Parth Barot on January 23, 2007

Although Sharp has already busted out 10- and 12-megapixel sensors for ultracompacts, the firm is toning it down a bit and making things even more compact with its latest 8.28-megapixel 1/2.5-inch CCD rendition. The company achieved the resolution “using the 1.75 μm x 1.75 μm pixel cell, which is claimed as is the industry’s smallest class,” and comes in at 60-percent of the volume of Sharp’s previous model. Presumably hoping to cram these things into wafer-thin cameras of the future, it plans to start shipping the 10- x 10- x 3.5-millimeter sample packages later next week, while volume production of the ¥4,000 ($33) sensors are scheduled for April.

Bang & Olufsen intros BeoLab 9 loudspeakers

Posted by Parth Barot on January 23, 2007


Per usual, Bang & Olufsen is out crafting home theater components that only a select few can afford, yet just about everyone can appreciate. The BeoLab 9 loudspeakers are no different, as they sport a unique conically-shaped cabinet that house the five-inch mid-range and ten-inch bass drivers, and the tweeter gets perched atop the unit ready to spread those highs “in an arc of 180 degrees.” These towers also feature the firm’s Acoustic Lens Technology, which supposedly “guarantees uniform sound characteristics in front of the speaker, letting the listener hear constant timbre even when moving around or sitting in different places.” While we’re not too confident on blasting these guys without a subwoofer somewhere in the loop, they do manage to tout the company’s “Adaptive Bass Linearisation technology” to prevent distortion, and can reportedly reach down to 30Hz all by their lonesome. Of course, for the presumably lofty price these things will demand, you also get a paint job of your choice, as the towers come in red, blue, dark grey, and black. No word on when these should grace showroom floors, nor how many arms / legs you’ll need to liquidate before even thinking about ’em, but the BeoLab 9 should be impressing deep-pocketed listeners real soon. Click on through for another look.

OrigenAE cranks out 1080p LCD-equipped HTPC chassis

Posted by Parth Barot on January 23, 2007


HTPC enclosures with front-mounted LCD screens certainly aren’t new, with firms such as VoodooPC and Okoro Media Systems (just to name a couple) have been pumpin’ them out for quite some time, but OrigenAE’s take on the LCD-equipped chassis involves quite a bit more distinction than the other ho hum attempts. The S21T is practically one-piece aluminum (black or silver) case that just oozes sleekness, and would probably become the instant standout in any AV rack. Gracing the front is a recessed 12.1-inch motorized LCD that touts an (admittedly tough on the eyes) 1,920 x 1,080 resolution, and just might beat out the actual TV sets this beast will end up connected to. Regardless, the enclosure also features a host of internal fans, matching optical drive bezel, removable motherboard tray, support for 10 internal hard drives, and a bevy of ports including USB 2.0, FireWire, audio in / out, and multi-card flash reader. Of course, it doesn’t really matter how sensational the innards of this thing are, just click on through for a few more snapshots and see how great it looks completely empty.

Seagate Claims Fastest 2.5-Inch Hard Drive

Posted by Parth Barot on January 19, 2007

It’s fast. In fact, Seagate is claiming it’s the fastest in the world: a 2.5-inch SCSI hard drive that spins at a dizzying 15,000 RPM.

Not only is Seagate touting its new Savvio 15K as the world’s first 2.5-inch hard drive with platters that spin at 15,000 RPM, but it is also saying that the drive is a full 12 percent faster (seek time) than comparable 3.5-inch 15K-RPM drives on the market.

As the latest addition to Seagate’s family of Savvio 2.5-inch Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) drives, the Savvio 15K boasts a 2.9-ms seek time—about a millisecond faster than comparable 3.5-inch SCSI drives, according to Seagate—as well as perpendicular recording technology.
