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.

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 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 won this in a drawing so for something free, I can't complain too much. However after maybe 2-3 uses, it no longer plays even after charging.The play button seems to have been pushed in and no longer clicks. This may be a reason why I can't get it playing. I won't get a replacement.
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.
