I just got it! (The GP2X Value Pack) Hey, I'm new here (this is my very first post) and I'm very impressed with my GP2X thus far. I've read on these boards a lot to prepare myself so I don't brick it and such and so far so good I also bought a power adapter and a 4Gb SD card (which unfortunately can't be read by any of my card readers). The unit looks great, much better than on a picture on the internet. I didn't have to apply any protective sheet and only had to take 1 off. The joystick isn't that bad, but maybe I'll try a mod of my own if I see it necessary down the road. With a pair of batteries in it it also feels great in my hands. A minor gripe is that I still haven't manged to get the USB cable to work (edit: USB cable works - just had to set my GP2X to USB mode), but I wasn't planning on using it much anyway. Got a card reader! It has the 3.0.0 Firmware and the boot time is a bit long, but I was prepared for that and I think I'll be able to live with it. The GUI is nice, but after I went and got a 2GB replacement SD card I put Gmenux on it and I really like it. Especially how you can add links to new games and such. As well as adjusting the overclock on each games/app. My unit seems to top out at 257mhz. I was hoping for a bit more but I think I'll be ok with it. If I want to use another skin, do I have to make sure it is made for 3.0.0 or will older ones work as well? One of the movies I tested had sync problems with the sound but maybe it can be improved if I get a faster SD card. The SD card that I still haven't been able to use has 17 write/21 read speed and if I just can find a card reader that will read it... If I find a card reader that is compatible with the SDHC standard will it also be able to read 4 GB SD cards? (TwinMOS Secure Digital 4096MB, 150X, Ultra-X) Can the shoulder buttons which skips to next movie be disabled? I used mplayer. I miss a "lock" feature that my mp3 player has. A workaround is to put each movie file in its own folder as the player don't skip outside a folder, just files in the same folder + good value for money + open source + supports a lot of emulators + good sound from the headphone jack + good video/image/picture screen + great potential + SD memory card support + nice community + ability to turn off display while listening to mp3's to save battery - AC adapter port (when in use) gets in the way - USB cable not working. Actually it DOES work! I just didn't know that I had to switch it to USB mode for the cable to work. I suspect this is why many other people report it as not working, they just don't know that you have to set it to USB mode - long boot up sequence - re-boots if you insert power adapter or disconnect it I'm very happy with my new toy and think it's great value for the money. I'm looking forward to replaying all my favorite Amiga games as well as other homebrew games.
