Summary: This thing didn't last long at all. First month worked fine. Second month, the files started to randomly get shuffled into other files. Third month, the folder files were unable to be deleted off the player, and the screen gave foreign jargon instead of english, so I had to remember how to get to menu items by counting 'clicks' and 'ups and downs'. Fourth month, the screen went out.
Summary: I had this for 1 1/2 years. I am a MAC person. So I wanted the cheapest MAC compatible player out there. IT WORKS EXCELLENT!! For both types! No reformating of the drive, you stick in a MAC it reads it or stick in a PC it reads it. You can't use Itunes with it but the software in the box works fine. It does the job. You get what you pay for which is true. Simple to use and drag and drop and your done. I use this for work as well (transport files).
Summary: The navagation buttons are a little odd. The music seemed to be glitchy, but I think that was my software I was using. It has been running fine for the last 6 months. Doesn't eat up batteries that bad. I use it jogging and has a hold button which is nice.
Summary: I bought my son this player for christmas he is only seven so I didnt want to get him an ipod and have him lose it get it stolen or destroy it so I went with this. Great move. It was a bargain price I thought it would be low quality but it has held up great. He uses it every day and it is very simple to use. I am definetly a pleased buyer.
Summary: Basically this is a cheap item that should not be purchased. You can spend a little more and get a nicer and better equipped item. I bought this for my young daughter to download only minimal amounts of music so I thought for the price, this would be fine. However, it simply would not download songs. It continually 'locked up'. When it would finally download, the ear piece had static throughout.
Summary: Picked this mp3 player up simply because it had a low price, and I wanted a player to use while exercising. I had never heard of Coby so I wasn't sure what I was in for... The good: Easy to set-up and use right out of the package--didn't even have to install anything. Simpy drag and drop mp3's from Itunes into the "portable device" icon. This player is pretty small so you can use it virtually anywhere. Runs on one AAA battery.
