Mebook part 4 : other info

And here is the last part of my review of Mebook

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Other info : USB connectivity :  transfer rates up to 1.5 MB /sec (!!) using cable extension with chocked cable. But I found that short cabled connection can yeld  to speeds up to 7.5 kb. Downloading from  mebook can rise  up to 23 mb (on Win 7 )  but speed is gradually lowering to 5 kB Earphones : very low audio (15 db at least ), bad quality (quite bassy ,low  trebles )Better to use other ears I prefer  using the Sony earphones  though AKG 315 are also OK (but quite bassy , better are the fuze sandisk ones )

Tested to support Greek , Russian Chinese and  Japanese file names as shown in the picture

Charge : can be charged  by the charger provided but also from the  USB port

About 10-12 hours of general playback duration (non video)

Full first charge via USB charger (1A) in ca 3 hours (together with some video playback ) second charge same time using its main adaptor.

The third charge was quite peculiar as it charged in ca 1-1.5 hours only , and the resulted  video playback was  ca 3.5 hours . Battery level was ca 5% , during a video playback and then I charged.

It can charge also while playing video! 

A blue LED is blinks  indicating charge . After charge has been made the  LED  lights continuously

Also  it s better  for you to explore the  Mebook  in your language than use help from its manual . The English  version of the manual is written in awful English. There were several cases that even the English menu did not help as for example the  'resetable'   meaning 'reset' (to default )  Its Greek version is even better

Leather case

This is an extra purchase  again via Amazon one month later  . it took for me  ca 1and half hour to search. But by chance I found the most appropriate model  for 8 GBP plus shipping. I t took ca 18 days to arrive here (quite much ). Hen I saw  I thought it could be smaller than the e-reader but was wrong . The  case  was exactly on the Mebook's size but the rubbers were quite firm to it.. The 'tongue'  to bend the  case its quite hard and annoys while reading or watching . But the surface is very good on using it in landscape mode to fit into a 'stand' of any kind  behind. I Use a pillow behind ,standing over a sheet of plywood , connect  my earphones and watch my movies!

 

  Results and opinions

Mebook uses an old Rockchip CPU  (processor) .Based on the info I collected from googling , the factory  is located in  Shenzhen and this CPU model  was produced at least 2 years ago.

MY verdict of this gadget:

I must admit that this gadget is really a  very good media player but cannot  say t it's a dedicated reader  since its  screen is not suitable for very long  reading  As noticed above this LCD screen is better suited to watch movies etc than reading books

As for  video is capable to watch movies up to 720 pp but not HDTV

Its audio is fair , but not so good as the Sandisk Fuze

Rating 4.5 /5
