The package comes with a nice small remote. I used it from across the room with no problems at all.

The menu is very straigh forward and very simple to navigate.

For a 3.5 inch screen I was impressed with the quality of the video, but for still pictures it is just above average.

This picture doesnt show it well but this picture shown on the Mega View is grainy. If you wanted to show something real quick, this will work just fine.

The radio picks up well and sounds decent through the speakers. The one touch recording is a nice function too. I connected this to my TV and recorded a few minutes of video and sound. Much like the picture, it is adequate for the small screen.

On the downside the earbuds you get are poor quality. I assume since this is more geared towards video display, there wasn't much invested into the audio accessories. My Mega256 I have came with much nicer earphones. The package would have been far more complete if those were included.


  • Easy to use
  • The battery lasts for 8 hrs
  • It supports a wide range of formats of video
  • The price is better than similar products


  • Still picture quality needs improvement
  • Earbuds could be better
