This is a godsend for all of you who hate converting files on to your PSP and find it a right pain. Now, with the Neuros MPEG-4 Video Recorder 2, this is made easy. The £90 ($140) device comes with an open-source piece of software, 'The Core Pocket Media Player' for easy playing your newly converted videos on Windows Mobile/Windows CE/Palm OS devices. The NVR2 really is good. You can enjoy high-quality video (WQVGA - 368x208) on your PC and great quality music videos (QVGA - 320x240) on your beloved iPod. For the PSP, just insert your memory card into one of the provided slots and off you go! No PC required. For the iPod, a little more work is required. Providing that you have a sutable card reader on your PC and iTunes installed, this shouldn't be that tricky. Just drag the files off the card and into iTunes! Ripping movies from DVDs is simple. Hook up the NVR2 to one of the line-out ports on your DVD player, insert a memory card into the NVR2 and use the NVR2's on-screen menu to begin recording. For playback on the PSP, just take out the memory stick and insert it into the PSP, and your all set! I told you it was simple. I'm giving the NVR2 a 9 out of 10. A very good product all round. Available from Amazon or ThinkGeek.
