Coby MP-C888 (1 GB) MP3 Player - Great to take anywhere
2 September 2008
Summary: THE LIKES: - Very Compact, lightweight - Uses AAA battery for power source - Seems like it as quality construction - Easy to turn on/off from outside a pocket - very important when at work and time is of the essence. THE DISLIKES: - Not real user friendly with Windows Media Player - No neck strap for when you don't have a shirt pocket - Battery does seem to die fairly quickly vs other players - Volume can be a problem if mowing the lawn, etc...
Summary: I brought this to replace my MP-848 (256MB) which is basiclly the older version of this one (it still works fine, I just wanted to upgrade to a 1GB). The MP-888 has an FM tuner which the old one did not have and the menus seem to be more organized. I hope this one is as dependable as my old one, I believe it will. I have been very pleased with COBY products, I own several, they are decent products at value prices.
Summary: Great player!!! And to the other reviewer, have you tried putting a fully charged battery? Bacuase I have one player (and I am buying another one for my wife) and it held me for 2 weekes. I listen only on my way to and from home - each dorection is 45min. So do your math (6.5 hours!). Overall the player is good for the price. Does very well what it claims to do. A very good thing I liked is it's looks expensive and not easy stretchable.
