Summary: For about 12-15 bucks the player is ok, but if you are serious about your music and like to have hundreds of songs this is not for you. It's ok for short trips like bus rides and what not because it can't hold many songs. And there are no playlists. Also, it doesn't take long to get use to how it works, but I had some problems with changing the songs. Syncing music is easy, and the sound quality is average. It isn't that bad but it isn't that good either.
Summary: The instructions for this player were not clear. Even someone with an MP3 player had a hard time figuring it out. Plus the battery came all rusted and corroded which bled out onto the instruction book. I would not recommend this one unless you are a total genius at figuring how to operate things like this. Where am I now with the MP3 player? Still not listening to music. It may have been the right price, but I think I bought a dud.
Summary: I have used this product for almost two years. I have one thing to say: excellent for the price. Pros: [A] The sound quality is excellent; as good as any iPod or Sansa, but, of course, this depends on your headphones. The headphones that are shipped with this player are quite insufficient. I bought some high quality in-ear headphones and I was very satisfied. [B] Menu system is outdated, but functional.
Summary: Do not bother with Coby! Player stopped working after only a few weeks. You try to turn it on and it just blinks back off. Customer support is a joke. They give you directions to do a firmware update that does nothing but erase anything you have stored on the MP3. I have a very sad little boy that received this as a birthday gift. Also tried to give feedback on Coby's website and received a fatal error once I submitted.
Summary: This device has one primary purpose...to display the name COBY when you turn it on, and then to immediately shut down. Oh, it may play your files for a week or two as a bonus when it's new, but then it resorts to it's true calling. I purchased one of these some time ago and for my purposes, it did the job just fine. For a while. Then it just stopped and started the behavior mentioned above.
Summary: I do not know if I like the MP3 player, I can not get it to work with out instructions. I wanted one for my daughter to enjoy. and to fill in the extra travel time on the school bus, I ended up giving her my cd player

Summary: Had it for less than two weeks and the player no longer works. The player would shut off for no reason occasionally and then finally it had a total malfunction. Customer service only had one solution and that was to reformat it on my computer but the computer would not recognize it being there. Had trouble with switching between songs with the toggle switch. the headphones are bad to use, sound quality is ugly to say the least. You get what you pay for!!
