Summary: i like the simple set up of this mp3 player powered with aaa batteries. no big problems. sometimes, it'll repeat a file it just played and i may have to manually forward until i hear the next file.it sounds pretty good.
Summary: I would not recommend that you buy this player for the original list price. I found mine for $5--a great deal for someone like me who doesn't want all the fanciness and frufu that comes with most players. I just wanted to hear my music and have something little to carry. I got this item yesterday, and so far, it is working. There are five simple buttons: Play/pause, forward, backward, + and - for volume.
Summary: I bought this for my wife for her birthday. It does not work out of the box, it powers on for 2 seconds and then powers off. We tried multiple new batteries, it's just broke as is. It does work as a USB drive, it just does not play mp3's. Save your money or spend more for something of higher quality.

Summary: Like stated in another review "it was too good to be true." I paid only $20.00 as a Christmas present to myself. I couldn't download all of my files and very few of them wouldn't play. The earbuds were very uncomfortable and they didn't last long. I had to buy another set. Everything was good until NOW, IT FREEZES. It's such a headache so, I am buying an ipod, but I should have known. Coby is a cheap brand. I will now use this as a regular jump drive.

Summary: You know how the old saying goes 'you get what you pay for', well it applies here, let me tell you. The sound quality isn't so good, and the volume control is horrible. I haven't had much a chance to listen to it because most of the time...I CAN'T TURN THE DAMN THING ON!! I push the button, sometimes hold it down for awhile and nothing happens! It's no wonder they are now giving these away practically. Spend the extra bucks for one with better quality.
Summary: Im going to try and be reasonable and bring my point across well. Basically once you have your music on and the battery in this player does pretty well. Obviously having no screen is a drawback - but look at the price. Not how I said once you have your music on. Be prepared for infinite displeasure when loading music on. Roughly half the times I plugged this player into my hard drive, the icon flashed on and off for a while.
Summary: 1 gig is big enough for me and I really like that I can use it as a flash drive as well. Battery life is pretty good could be better though. It would be better with some sort of menu too , but for the price you really can't beat it.
