Summary: It'll seem nice, in the beginning, but it will easily break on you after a month or two. It has a ton of bugs and glitches in it and the hardware and wiring inside it is really shoddy. You should avoid most any products made by Coby, altogether. They are one of the cheapest electronics companies in the world. EVERYTHING they make, from Mp3 players and earphones, to televisions, breaks almost right away.
Summary: I bought this mp3 because it's supposed to act as flash memory (pen drive) and voice recorder, but both functions simply don't exist in this product. I just cannot believe Amazon is selling a bad product like this. What a shame.
good mp3 player for the price, useless as voice recorder

Summary: 0/5 stars as a voice recorder 4/5 stars as an mp3 player Warning, do not buy this if you are planning on using it as a voice recorder. It simply does not have the function despite what the ad/specs say. I bought this mainly to use as a voice recorder, and planned on rarely using it to play mp3s. Let me make this perfectly clear: there is NO voice recording function on this player, despite what the ad says.
Summary: I have purchased Coby products before and have found them to be quite satisfactory, but I found myself surprisingly unimpressed with this item. Unlike its 1 GB predecessor, this MP3 Player is exremely light weight and I feel as if I'm going to break the thing, because it's made of such thin plastic. It also takes a really long time to turn on, an unimpressive 10-15 seconds vs. the original's 5-10 (and it has nothing to do with how many songs are on the thing).
Summary: Player works fairly well. One of the buttons on the player was acting flaky when we first started using it. But it seems to be working itself out. Player can be slow to respond to button presses. I had to reset the player once when it locked up. I just pulled the battery out and put it back in. It started back up just fine. I got this player for $42 when it was being sold directly by Amazon, I wouldn't pay much more than that for it.
