Summary: This Coby MP3 player, unlike some of Coby's other models that CLAIM ability to record, while Coby quietly removed record function from actual device, THIS ONE actually STILL can RECORD!! Ability to record is nice feature! Other reviewers have critisized similar Coby MP3 players for poor battery life. On this device, battery that came with it was completely expended in just a few hours as I used device exploring different functions, etc.
Summary: Bought another Coby MP3 for my older son, however wanted a 1 MG since he was younger. This was a poor quality MP3. The lighting/graphics/words are poor. I tried for hours on Christmas to download 4 songs, all the same format. Two downloaded, the other 2 kept giving me an error message. The quality of the player itself seemed plastic-like. I thought I couldn't go wrong buying a Coby, but I guess I should have read more reviews. You get what you pay for.....
Summary: I bought this to protect my expensive wave/mp3 recorder - at 10% of the cost, this is better than insurance. I also wanted the memory feature - to have it boot up to the same location as when I turned it off, so I could use it with recorded books, which this does admirably. Unfortunately, this function only works with the on-board memory, not the extended memory in my SD card.
Summary: For its cost, the player delivers great sound, great performance, it's easy to load up songs, radio and voice recording feature are definitely a plus...and for those who complain about the battery consumption...buy a pair of rechargeables for $10 at radio shack and you're done!...unbeatable price, great device!
Summary: Other than not having a color display, this player has absolutely everything in a perfect tiny square player. I bought it during a one day sale and for 1 GB with an expansion slot I felt like I was getting away with something because the list price was even great without the sale. I bought this for my boyfriend to use in his car with an FM transmitter, and the battery life is long enough to leave it in the car for a couple weeks at a time between charging.
Summary: I bought this player for my daughter for Christmas and I was so delighted to find a player with expandable memory. It seemed like an answered prayer as she continually outgrows the capacity of previous players. However, from the beginning we noticed that the player ate up batteries like nothing. Even digital batteries weren't much better. Now, 4 months later and the player will not stay powered up and I'm finding more and more bad reviews with the same complaints.
