the Plextalk pocket is good for making recordings, but in other ways does
not compete with the Sense.

  The PTX1 has the most awful time jump facility I have yet to see.

    Hi Amro,



    So everything you say about the BookSense is heresay, and pretty well
inaccurate.  But that?s because ?I was told? as you say.



    You should really see a device before you cast judgment on it.



    I have both here, and I think currently the Sense is the best player on
the market on many levels.



    Navigation is more like Windows.  You go to a folder, you hit enter or
play on it, and it does it.  Until recently, the stream didn?t even have
multi level folder support.



    It records in MP3 and WAV for free.  Stream users are going to have to
pay for that luxury in a paid for upgrade.



    It is more responsive, has better Text To Speech, and actually feels
nice in the hand.



    In fact, I can?t think of anything currently that the stream now does
better.



    They have just brought out a free upgrade for the stream that, wait for
it, lets you read Word files.  Sense has done this from the beginning.



    To me, the stream is pretty big and bulky, and now does less.  Heck, it
doesn?t even play M4A files supported by iTunes.  Sense does.



    Finally, we have had at least three updates to the Sense in the last six
months..  We have waited about a year for this most recent upgrade for the
Stream.  This says to me a lot about development.  HIMS are well on the ball
when it comes to developing the Sense.



    I loved the stream when I first bought it, and it was the first there.
But it has somewhat lost momentum to me, in terms of development.



    Finally, a little disclaimer.  Yes I do sell the BookSense, but I also
sell the stream, so I have no axe to grind.  But to me, the Sense is
assuredly the best specialist player out there.



    All the best



    Steve

    I'm not sure though why would one choose the Booksense over the Victor
Stream. The VStream is cheaper to start with, has a better navigating
options than the Booksense from what I gathered listening to a couple of
Booksense demo podcasts, looks better than the Booksense which looks like a
cheep mobile phone I was told and can do everything the Booksense can do
apart from playing the Enhanced Audible formats.



      I'm not just being derogative, I'm actually interested.



      Cheers,

      Amro

      You can play folders at any level and that will play any subfolders as
well.
      If you select to play the root music folder on the Booksense and left
it
      playing, all folders in that music structure would play till they were
      finished. This could indeed allow for hours of music playing.
