The product
Looking at the exterior, you see a couple of simple touch controls, and the 2.4” screen. In the top of the player, there’s a switch for on/off and “hold” to prevent accidental tune shifting or stopping, while enjoying the beat. Beside that there’s a push-down button for turning the player on and off. In the bottom you find the input for headphones and a microSD expansion slot, and in the right side you find the mini USB 2.0 input. On the back, there’s nothing worth mentioning besides a few symbols and some text. 


Data transfers is done trough a hi-speed USB 2.0 connection. Despite that, I think the little input slot next to the headphone input is much more interesting. That’s because it’s a MicroSD slot, which gives you the opportunity to increase the total memory from 1 GB to what ever you need (limited by the technological limits of course). This MicroSD slot is worth mentioning because 1 GB of internal memory as the only option doesn’t reach very far if you want to watch a movie etc, which the screen is designed for. So being able to increase the memory is a big plus.

When buying a multimediaplayer, a couple of headphones are often bundled with it. In this case we’ve got a white pair of standard headphones. Even though it’s bundled headphones, the quality is okay. However, Super Talent has chosen a strange place for the headphone input. The reason for that is the shape of the player, which makes you prefer to place it vertically in the pocket, but this means the headphone plug will bend or even get pulled out. They should have used an L shaped headphone plug which would have prevented this.

Powering up the Video 24T takes a few seconds, but when it’s on you’re surprised about the quality of the 2.4” screen with 262.000 colours. I’m particularly impressed with the quality of pictures and videos. 

As described earlier, the various buttons for controlling the player has been placed on the right side of the screen. They all work properly, but sometimes they’re a little too sensitive or not sensitive enough. This means the use of the touchpad isn’t always logical.



Taking a closer look at the player’s features, we’ll start with its main feature which is the MP4 part, used for video playback. In the video menu you get a list of what video files the player contains, and the audio file part is identical to this. After choosing an MP4 file you only have the basic functions, like forward/backwards winding. Once again I would like to point out that the quality compared to the size is very good, and Super Talent has accomplished brining the quality of the main feature to the top. The Super Talent Video 24T also has a photo album, which you can navigate trough with the back/forth buttons.
Besides that, the Super Talent Video 24T also contains the following features:


• FM Radio
• Explorer folder
• Game folder
• Equalizer

  
 

 
Unfortunately it doesn’t seem like the developers spent much time on the FM radio. Often it doesn’t do what you want it to do. Also, the game folder seems misplaced, as it contains no games and the manual does not mention anything about compatible games. 

Next step is the sound quality. Unfortunately the sound quality is one of the things the Video 24T is lacking, and we know that there are a lot of MP3 players on the market with a better sound quality. The bundled headphones play a part in the poor sound quality, so a better pair of headphones might improve the sound. However the quality is fairly good when listening to a tune without too much bass at a low volume. But as soon as you turn up the volume in tunes with a lot of bass, the sound quality is reduced.

Conclusion
If I take an overall look at the Vidego24T, I come to think about the fact that if you removed the simple mistakes, you would get a complete MP4 player. Looking at the features, the Vidego24T has the potential of being a great MP4 player, but with all the features, Super Talent has aimed at a wide feature list, putting the quality at a lower priority. As an example, I find it unnecessary to add two uncompleted features like the e-book function and game function, that doesn’t really work.

Before stamping the Vidego24T as a useless MP4 player, I think one should appreciate its media player functions. In this price range, the sound quality is good, unless you turn up the volume to max, where the bass distorts.

A think I really fell in love with was the big 2.4” TFT screen. The size is great for watching videos and pictures in fantastic colours, which I didn’t expect from a product in this price range. Also the size of the screen allows you to see 12 mp3 files at a time, including song title and band/artist.

All in all, I must say the Vidego24T has a great screen and good sound. With that said, the controls and menus isn’t top quality. The same goes for the build quality of the player, and despite of the low price, I would prefer a product from an established company that doesn’t need to fight the “child deceases”.
