The picture display option is useful if you want to bring along presentations. They can be outputted to a larger screen with the video outs.

The built in MP3 player has the option to shuffle and repeat. There aren't too many options while the file is being played.

One of the greatest features of the Pavio is the ability to watch and record TV shows. You can connect a coax directly to the back of the docking station. The only drawback is a limit of 125 channels that can be scanned.

There is also an option to set a time for the the unit to record your favorite show. This sort of makes it like your own personal TiVo.

The docking station also lets you record on demand with the Rec button on the bottom.

Overall, the unit is a great addition to any 'geek' arsenal. I took the Pavio on a 3 hour trip in the car. The unit was heavy enough to sit on my dash without moving much on the highway. It is a great device to watch your shows on the go. I was able to catch up on some Law and Order: SVU I missed from the week before while in the car. After finishing up the show, I jumped over to the MP3s I loaded and played them through the car stereo through the use of a tape adapter.

I asked one of the reps from Datexx about future codec upgrades for video. It was mentioned that there would be software upgrades in the future to keep the unit up to date. One thing to note, the unit only supports Windows (98E/ME/2000/XP) and Mac (OS 9.X).



Pros:

  • Easy to use
  • Ability to play numerous file formats
  • TV Tuner with record abilities
  • Battery life has enough juice to play a few movies


Cons:

  • Price may turn away a few people
