On the market I agree, at times cannot find a HD hybrid that does a PMP and MP3 wish I knew.

the Z700 / GVS is a portable media player in its orginal format. 1440x1080, 1280x720 858x480 but when viewing you are on a 3 inch screen, that is HD quailty or is it ?

MP3 it is a mp3 player but unsure how to get files to a modified setting that it has.

MP3 is a waste why would you listen to 50 minutes of music, andwhy would you watch 50 minutes of video. I think I preferre 50 minutes offilming. so to use all three I believe the Ahd will do best.
it has all the info you're asking may be called ahd300 or so.
hi fishycomics ...
I did saw your reviews ans I did bought a aiptek, the Z500 pro that was good but no mp3 so I changed it for the z100 pro but that one I didn't like it so got back the money... so now i'm afraid of getting another aiptek.... do you have a review on the AHD 300 ??
the need is having a mp3 player with remote control and a good camera to record various 3, 4min video usually indoor and if it could play some videos that I put in that was perfect...

Why do you need a camcorder with mp3? I can see you only want to carry one device with you, but mp3 players these days are hardly huge! Better to get the camcorder based on it's videoing abilities and a separate mp3 player in my opinion.

As Fishycomics pointed out, the battery life on these hybrids is not that great as it is, whereas even a cheap mp3 player will generally play several hours.

I carry my m3 player to/from it is a insignia dv-4d from bestbuy, purchased online at dealtree.com, or ebay sold as a refurbished unit costing 20-40.00 the battery life is, IS 16 hours, and that is using it as a video, mp3 an which way yo look at it period.

If I did this with the cam as a mp3/4 player 50 minutes. you tell me which is better 16 hours of playtime or 50 minutes of playtime, and the screen is a 2 inch color

I myself use an Insignia Pilot! Only mp3 player of reasonable cost that had bluetooth! I use it with my Car Stereo everyday to listen to Podcasts.

You read the part "Aiptek Action HD GVS 1080P" ? I don't see how I can further clarify as to which camcorder I am using.

Hi to all.. is being a great help to listen to all your opinion.
The reason I need a mp3 player in my cam is because I need a mp3 player with remote control, I know there's the ipod dock with remote and you have some mp3 players with bluetooth that can be as a remote with stereo headphones.
I just wanted to have all in one device....
but I guess the best is to have one for each propose.
thanks very much for all the help.

best regards and keep up with the good work

I've never had a positive experience with an "All in one device". Either the manufacturer concentrates on one of the function and the other functions are just crappy add-ons. Or the manufacturer do a half-a** job with all the functions and you'll have an incomplete and buggy device. The best way imo and experience is to have seperate devices, as you have written.

True. I got it today and it plays audio files in M4A format. It has option to record voice memo, and plays it back on the speakers.
No headphone or Mic. These 2 options are on HD2000.
