Great Deal For It's Price! Lasts a Very Long Time as Long as You Don't Wreak Havoc On It!
Just Another Person "ColoBeans", Amazon
9 March 2015
Summary: I bought it on March 3, 2013, but it's starting to wear out (since I dropped it a lot, it's March 9, 2015 as of now). The charging cable or mp3 plug is getting worn out and not connecting so I'm probably going to order a new cable. If not, then a new mp3 player. It has a very long battery life and only takes a few minutes to charge it back to full battery.
Summary: It didn't work. Charged for over 24 hours and still wouldn't work. Called to see if I could get some help or information like the Coby suggested. Got automated message that told me to press 1. I did and then I'm being offered a $100 rebate card but in order to get it you have to sign up for slew of other offers. I hung up. It was feather light but I don't know if that was normal or if it was missing parts inside. I got a Sony instead, pricier but worth it.
Summary: If you're looking for something with apps and shuffling, this is not for you. If you want something that is light and portable to play background music in a small office (connected to a speaker) or keep in your drawer to pull out and use on a day when you need some musical escape and not have to have a heart attack if it goes missing, then this is for you. It has no speakers, you must external speakers via an auxillary cable or headphones. The sound quality is good.
Summary: Honestly, I have purchased several different COBY electronics over the years with outstanding results. However, this little gadget came with a battery that refused to charge, even after following the instructions on recharging. No go. It is a sad thing to know the manufacturer is no longer in business. When they were they sold excellent products at reasonable prices.
Summary: This thing lasts forever. I bought mine over a year ago. My siblings have also purchased the same. The fist time I bought one it broke when I sent it through the dryer, oops :) I just love it. Very simple, so if your used to a lot of features this won't out do them all. But if your looking for your first mp3 or one that will last I recommend it.
Summary: have liked these MP3 players, wish that the company ( Coby) didnt bankrupt, but have to admit the latest models not as good lately, screens crack easily and battery loses charge quickly, may not connect to computer the menu is VERY easy to navagate, great sound, holds tons of music and videos ( this one working great - another bought at the same time didnt even work same model -but black) ) seems to be a hit or miss proposition overwise when it works --these are good MP3...
Summary: I needed an inexpensive MP3 player for my car. Didn't want to cart my iPod touch everywhere so I opted for this one. Great, low price and good reviews. I'd had a tiny, basic MP3 player in the car but it has no screen at all and I couldn't check the name of a song or artist if I wasn't sure what was playing. So I opted to get this one because it has a screen and a full 8GB of storage space.
Summary: I received the item new that was in the sealed package. I open the package and attempted to power on the unit. The unit would not power on. I charged the item for the rquired time, same thing will not power on. I followed the instuctions per the manuel supplied. This has happened to two(2) of these units. Something is wrong with the units.
Summary: The unit itself is fine, BUT . . . mine came without a usb cable and when I tried to contact the company I found out that none of the supplied numbers worked anymore and the e-mail address didn't work either. I called Amazon and was finally told that the company had gone out of business in 2013. IF you get all of the pieces, it is a good unit for the price. If you don't get all the pieces, there is no recourse other than returning it to Amazon!
