Efo USB Dongle for Internet Radio, TV and Game Player 3 in 1 - Mini Review

Written by Martin Regtien on . Posted in Miscellaneous

Efo TVThis little USB stick packs quite an entertainment punch!

Here you have easy access to literally thousands of radio and TV stations as well as games.
It takes ages to just browse through the phenomenal menu that has been dished up on your screen to taste and sample them...
Fortunately, many categories come with their Top 100 selections to make it a bit easier. Mind you, this one has a heavy Asian bias which is not bad, just different.
As the site says: Chanson de Paris, New York Jazz, Britpop Rock, Milano Cancion de Amor, Tokyo Pop, Bollywood of India, Venetian Classical Music and more ... Music of the whole world will follow you anytime, anywhere you go.

Real-time Sport Event Broadcasts, Global News Broadcasts, Tokyo Anime and Pop-music Televisions ...
From Fashion to delicacies! From Fox News to Bloomberg Business! Only this dongle is capable of bringing the whole world to your doorsteps.

Well the above is all true but you must have a decent broadband connection and lots of time on your hand...
All the channels are classified in Genres and Regions. Also handy is that a stream quality indicator is provided that will show the user the monitored Internet stream stability in real-time from the player's location.
And, yes, you can record music in WMA format to your hard drive!

I checked out a few channels and stations, like NASA TV (boring lecture at that moment) and some other science programs and listened to some favourite stations from the big smoke which we normally can’t get in this area.
The good thing is that you don’t have to retune your radio stations when you travel. Just make a list of favourites and plug in the dongle!
You can also Like a particular channel or Dislike it and its ranking will change accordingly if enough folks feel the same way.
It takes a while for the program to start up and load and the interface is decidedly Asian in appearance: a bit dated and with pale colours. Not my taste but, hey, some of the music certainly is!
