Summary: I bought this player as a "last-minute" christmas stocking stuffer last year. I guess I bought it for the looks. I was a sucker for the colour screen and the seemingly easy navigation button. This player is charged via USB. Whilst some persons may see this as a con, I see this as a pro because I have another mp3 player that uses AA batteries that get sucked dry within minutes of continuous play. Furthermore, the charge on this coby lasts fairly long.
Summary: My daughter had been asking me to get her an MP3 player for I don't know how many months. She can be a little irresponsible so I was not going to drop half my paycheck on one just to have her lose it, so I put her off. Then she needed one--preferable with its own speakers--for a presentation. I decided to try this Coby brand because we've had other Coby products that were good quality.
Buyer Beware this item does not really rate even a 1.

Summary: I could not get this "player" to turn off! Nor could I set up playlists. The pictures I loaded were distorted and the presets for the FM function, guess what,they didn't work either. I returned it. Sadly it cost me return postage, but Amazon did refund my credit card in a timely manner. I would not consider a product from Coby again. I instead purchased a Sansa as the Christmas gift for my husband and it works very well. This product does not deserve a star...
Summary: Not too many budget priced players come with a full color screen so I decided to take a chance. Overall not bad. Coby's higher end players may be worth a look. PRO: Full color 1.5" screen with intuitive menus. Decent sound quality - kinda thin with little bass, but good treble. Drag and drop files from PC. CON: Flimsy plastic construction. Buttons click when pressed. USB 1.1 a little slow these days.
