PC Mag: Toshiba MEG-F60S features poor navigation, EQ

updated 04:25 pm EDT, Thu June 9, 2005

Toshiba MEG-F60S

The is a new iPod competitor that features a large vertically oriented color screen and white, plus-shaped control surface. Just slightly taller and thicker than the Apple iPod, the gigabeat packs 60GB into a stylish enclosure. In its review of the player, PC Magazine says "our initial enthusiasm for the plus-shaped control surface, which Toshiba calls the Plus Touch, was quickly dampened when we realized that it's just five touch-sensitive switches. There's no sliding function or pressure sensitivity in the arms. Forward- and back-scanning happen at a fixed pace. There's no acceleration or ballistic function, and sliding your finger around doesn't change the rate of progress. Ditto for the volume control.[...] We'd forgive much of the above if the gigabeat were a great music player, but it's only listenable with the EQ turned off."
