Released January, 2010
The Pros:Construction of the front panel and ports feels solid and durable. Screen is very sharp, brings out detail really well. Works with a wide range of file formats.
The Cons:Totally smooth bezel means you need to be looking at the panel to find the button you want. Touch sensitive buttons don't always react right away, need to watch to see if your touch did anything. Volume knob is shallow and smooth, a bit hard to turn.
