Product Shot 1 The Pros:2" LCD screen. Includes all important file formats such as MKV etc. Great musicplayer with the screen.

The Cons:Not great for 1080p playback.

The Hantech Markus 800 HD is a high definition digital media player that is considered one of the most “aesthetically appealing media players” on the market. Enclosed in a black plastic case and utilizing a 2.0” LCD for displaying information, the 800 HD is cited as beating its competitor, the DviCo M-6500a, in both aesthetics and usability.

However, it does not support HDMI 1.3, and although it can handle full 1080p HDMI playback with its Sigma processor, critics note decreased performance and lower bit rates. Nonetheless, the Markus 800 HD features two USB 2.0 ports, 480i/480p/720p/1080i/1080p HDMI compatibility, and the ability to play over 15 different video formats including MPEG, xVid, DivX, WMV, and AVI. In conclusion, critics remark that the Hantech Markus 800 HD is a viable option for consumers seeking standard definition for 720p HS playback, but not so great an option for those seeking quality full 1080p playback.
