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.
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 purchased my first two at Krogers for 14.99 each. I have had them for several years and sold one to a friend. I wish I kept the other one because I need a few to use as christmass gifts. I think that the ease of use was a plus. It looks like a flash drive on the computer and works pretty well. The battery life is ok for what you pay for it. I would likely buy others for gifts this year. The only drawback is the earphones are smaller.
Summary: excellent sound quality, better than I expected. no frills, plays music in order loaded or random. instruction manual poor but good one is online and customer service at coby is very good- thought something was wrong with mine but found it wasn't playing 'cause I was pausing it without realizing it(duh). love that it's so small, I clip it to my blouse and have music when I'm out in my power chair and 4-5 mph isn't so boring with music!
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.
Summary: The only negative thing I have to say regarding the MP3 player is the buttons. Very easy to hit the wrong one. Also, never leave it in your coat pocket or in your purse for use. The buttons get pushed and you run out of battery without knowing it and it is dead when you are ready to use it. Otherwise, it is an excellent player for the price. Holds alot of songs and easy to hook up.
