Summary: 1st one worked for a week then had hard drive error, 2nd one took it out of package would not recognize player on any computer,returned that one got the feplacement, battery last for about 4 hours
Summary: Do not buy this product if you don't want to continue returning to the store to return it. It kept freezing whenever I added a video file. The conversion software it came with didn't help much. I returned the item and exchanged it for another one. The same problem happened again. This time, with music files too. The problem became even worse because I was unable to turn it on again. I charged it overnight, and it still wouldn't turn on.
Pros: Lots of Storage
Cons: Difficult to Set Up, Freezes Up, Poor Sound Quality, Short Battery Life
Summary: I use this product mainly when commuting. The storage capacity is excellent for the money, and the sound is pristine! This product is on the "bulky" side, due to it's built in hard drive, and large, easy to see screen. This is an excellent buy!
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Great Sound, Long Battery Life, Lots of Storage, Reliable Performance, Simple Controls
Summary: I like the storage capacity but I can for the life of me figure out how to SYNC music from my PC. I can copy .wma files to the ROOT directory and replay them but I have to manually transfer the files and havent found a way to shuffle or create a playlist. My PC stores the files as .wma and I dont know how to convert everything to MP3 so I copied the .wma files.
Summary: I love this player. It has the capability to play ogg. files, which Ipod can't. Thats a big plus because the quality of ogg. files is better and they take up less space. 20GB has been enough memory for me. Price and look are great also. Very cute. I have had no problems with it yet. And putting music into it is really easy cause you don't have to download Itunes and have all kinds of restriction placed upon you. Good buy.
Summary: This is an updated review the first being somewhat favorable but I am now convinced that this product has no quality standards. The Hard Drive failure complaints are high. My son purchased one recently and was returned to the manufacturer twice only to have them replaced with new units and only to have the same issues. Very hard to communicate with Coby, they will assist but in their own time and without status updates.
