Summary: Don't buy this product. It does not work. I was able to download music to it, but it would not play the music. Also, buttons stuck. Very disappointed in product. Too, bad...it was a neat concept.
Summary: Hey guys. This Coby MP_3 player is really reliable under 1 condition. The USB jack heats a little causing the microboard inside to loosen up. It is great, comes with a handy adapter for those 3.5mm jacks (major drawback-not standard) and for those who really are serious about their purchase, the pink and silver models are different.
Good Battery Life, but 2 design flaws give an overall Average result.
25 April 2011
Summary: Battery life - Excellent. This clip is heavier than similar sized clip mp3's because it is one of the few clips with decent battery life. It charges with the relatively common miniUSB port. Features - Excellent. Because it is minimal. No battery gobbling screen. Only the minimum features. A simple play/pause button. A stop keeps you in the same song at the same place. Volume controls are also forward and back. Design - Poor.
Summary: I got this from circuit city [...] and I really liked it, until maybe a week later the play button began to stick and it wouldn't play songs. So exchanged it for a new one, and it happened again, but this time I still managed to get it to work. Then music would only play from one earbud, i assumed it was buds, but nope it happened to all of them. Also my husband doesn't like it b/c if he clips it to his collar, it stretches it out.
Summary: I like the features, i use it when i go out on rides, the power button hold down to power on is a bit too long, and once fully charge the battery discharges in about an hour, wish the battery life was longer, at least 3 hours.
Summary: I bought this as an inexpensive replacement for my daughter when her IPOD shuffle was stolen. Bad mistake. Don't get me wrong, it's a nice little mp3 player. The problem is that all of my daughter's music is under I-Tunes, which formats music that you legitimately own in such a way that you can only copy the music over to an IPOD. Anything that's not an IPOD will read the music as copywrited and will not play the music.
