The all-inclusive RCA Lyra X3030 is a solid video playback and recording device, despite its poorly designed menu interface. Yet there are still PVPs on the market that perform better.
Although it's packed with useful, fitness-oriented features, the RCA Lyra RD2212 is disappointing overall, thanks to a flawed design.

Spiffy looks and good battery life can't compensate for this player's mediocre sound and typical feature set.
It's certainly not the smallest unit we've seen, but the RD2840 is a decent hard drive player.
Television recordings play back fine, but viewing purchased and downloaded video is tougher.

The Lyra RD1080 is the best of RCA's current crop of flash-based MP3 players.
