GOOD PRODUCT BUT VERY SLOW REACTION TO INPUTS
by Ramki on 2014-06-23
I got the player after about 3 days and was nicely packed. Full marks for that.
Firstly - Once i opened the package and saw the price on it, i was disappointed for the fact that the price on the original package was less than i pay on Amazon which shouldnt have happened. I am in Hyderabad with a a big electronics market here where i could have got it for much cheaper rate. Well i have learnt my lesson and will be careful next time.
I tried out my personal ear phones and the sound quality is quite good. Internal memory of 8GB and 16 GB of external memory is quite a lot to carry a lot of stuff on this player.
Over all i wanted a good product with more storage capacity and on that count this player is good.
Had the player charged and loaded with some music, i found that the response time is quite long. Usually 1-3 seconds to respond to certain commands. I believe that the more stuff you load, the slower the response would be. Its frustrating waiting for a song to start when you select it randomly from your playlist. Yet to load video and i am afraid it would slow it down further.
I believe Transcend is taking notice of these glitches and planning to rectify the same.
14 JUL 2014 - The player has stopped working altogether and doesnt come on even after being charged. Once plugged to the charger, the unit turns on but does not respond to any inputs. Had tried to charge it but the home screen comes on and stays as it is. Once unplugged from the charger, the screen stays on till battery runs out. doesnt play music nor does it react to any inputs. Unable to find servicing center in India. Any one who reads this message, kindly help with servicing center address.
A Good quality MP3 player with unique Features!
by Srinivasa AR on 2012-02-23
I purchased this item through Flipkart, No comments other than *****! services.
I have few observations to share;
First of all the positive features;
1) It has got a beautiful off timer, sleep timer helps you in conserving battery. Good unexpected feature.
2) There are many websites, which bear good music, but you cannot record them or download them. But using this put the audio out of your PC to your MP3 Mic in and record your choicest audio. A very simple way of making it.
3) Normal quality of recording, music playing, video resolution are very good, at this range, you can pleasantly give *****!
4) Battery back-up I can rate upto **** (4 stars),
1) No battery charges is included in the product. You have to either depend on USB port through PC. But I found a solution. Use a mini USB connectivity mobile charger. It works excellent. I tried with one chinese make mobile charge, it was giving a warning of charging with incorrect voltage, hence, I suggest to go for a branded or a quality charger.
2) It does not have graphic equaliser or any preset selection in music playing formats (Rock/Pop/dynamic, etc.) but sound quality is fine.
3) You cannot delete a file, you may have to do it through PC.
Overall rating, it is 4.5 Stars.
Bought it for the 3rd time... instead of an apple product
by Akash Dhar on 2014-12-27
This is the best music player in the market.. although is still traditional UI is outdated, functions and features seems childish.. but you don't get this music quality in any of the apple devices... its that good...
Sound is crisp as kurkure... bass is just so perfectto .. its a god device for trance lovers..
treble... is just so smooth.. wont ever hurt your ears even after long hours of playback...
And you can really feel the female vocals so soothing and clear.. as if ur mother was singing a lullaby to you.. its thatttt soothing pleasant..
I could have paid 5k more also to get this product... this is simply the best...
despite its amazing specifications.. i strongly feel this is one underrated product.. this should be on par with itouch or ipod any damn time...
The most important thing in this device is the equalizer effect called as SRS WOW... this device really shows what surround sound actually feels like .. and that too its customizable.. isnt it amazing??
before buying it for the third time (after i brutally mishandled the last too) i tried the lumia's the andriod's none of the phones gave me as close to 30% what this device gives...
i had no option but to choose it again...
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: If ure buying this for the SRS WOW effect thinking that it will be there to be very frank Transcend has removed the SRS WOW feature in its latest firmware builds.. even i was thoroughly dissapointed when i got this device with just 8 bands where in the website it is written it has 11 band (with the SRS WOW band)..
what you need to do is download and install the earlier firmware . which is 184.108.40.206 and renable the SRS wow.. keep rocking \m/

Received the product today. Booked on 30/7/13. Flipkart's service is too good and prompt.
It was neatly packed. No deformation of the product package.
This is my first product of MP4 player as well as of Transcend. Aesthetics of the product is very impressive. Sound quality, video quality, pictures, radio receiving and reproduction is very clear, voice recording is jolly good. So far my experience with the product has been quite nice.
Cons of the product: no power supply adaptor, slow operation while selecting different menus, ear phones are not that good. Also the external memory card which was working well with my phone is not working well with the device though the files are mp3.
Shall put on more reviews in due course as I use the device.

I always had a transcend player 4 BG using from year 2003, had problems only 2 time and after a firmware update its all fine. So this time when i wanted to get another player my choices were i-pod, cowon and others but since i never had any issues with my old MP3 player i chose to go with MP870. I got this player 2 days back. The looks pretty good. The sound quality is good, am using my old philips headphones, didnt even open the new headphones. The options are same as the old player but its quite slow. there is a lag when you try to run another song or go to the main menu. I feel its slow also the impressions on the buttons for rewind, forward and music + and - are totally wiped off in 2 days.also the buttons dont have backlight as used to be in the old MP3 player. the back button is also very small. Transcend should have either stuck to there 9 small button options as the old one has or should have given touchscreen options. Anyways i am pretty satisfied with this as i have already downloaded 600+ songs to listen as of now. so the rating for this product is 4/5. cheap and cool. No need to spend money on expensive brands just to show off.
its gud...its.works well
by Oshin Mathew on 2012-05-13
am using it for last 2 years...am comfort on it...but as a demerit ..i should say that.....for charging..we should depend on pc.
and..we cant delet anything from that.for deleting too we should depend pc.
good but not the best......but u can go with it.......

this player is cheap and good but it is slow.and u have to press navigation keys every time to scroll or drop down which is some time irritating.but on the brighter side u are getting a good music player with different eq presets and srs hd sound quality.watching videos are only good if they are in flv format.otherwise u will definitely face synchronization probelm.battery backup is awesome .recharge time is about 2.8 to 3.2 hr,which is good.the headset comes with mp870 is awefully bad....so plz go with good headset

FYI, reset button works. I have used it for a year and it got stuck only rarely and was easily rectified by using reset button.
For the price , the package seems ok. And don't go by the previous review.

I bought this product 3 years ago & i haven't experienced any major faults till some months ago .... It started to hang , it's buttons became unresponsive & It Shut's Off by itself ..
Also if you move the headphones pin even a little bit the music gets all scratchy ...
Very Very Over Priced , Double the MRP Rate

Hi This model don't have FM recording. The MRP Price for this model is Rs.3990
But flipkart selling for Rs.6999. Which is not expected from flipkart.
