    As the title suggest I'm looking for a decent quality, cheap mp4 player with a diagnal screen size of 4.3 inches. I did the usual google search and got many results but im skeptical of the quality and shipping time of those. I saw one in the wallmart site (link below) but a few bad reviews is all I need to become unsure. So anyway, anyone know of one of these that wont crash immediatly, break easily or have bad audio and video quality. Any suggestions to other products are welcome.

    Please ignore some of the spelling mistakes and thanks in advance.

    How much are you willing to spend? I know you said cheap, but if you're willing, I seriously recommend the iPod Touch.

    Check out mp4nation.com or ownta.com.

    You're really better off getting a Chinese mp4 player from these guys.

    I recently was looking for something like this and did about 2 months of research finding the one perfect for me. I ended up on the Ainol V9000HDG 16GB. It was about $140.

    Here's a link to it: http://mp4nation.net/catalog/index.php?mai...products_id=397

    It's amazing; plays any filetype I throw at it, supports subtitle files, supports playing off of USB drives, microSD slot, outputs to TV's via HDMI and component and composite cables.

    It's a lifesaver! And with these players, even though the screens are small you can see everything in high-def.

    Thanks for the responses, @Devante that one its pretty nice but the price is high. @Joktan I was thinking about the dingo but the screen is only 2.8". Can the Itouch stream videos from many websites or only youtube or official websites.

    Check out those websites, there are some MP4 players (called PMP, or Portable Media Players) that are less than $100.
