Summary: This little player is good for music or audio books. I use rechargeable AAA batteries, so when I'm out and about and a battery goes low, I just pop in another and keep going, unlike the players that require taking a player out of service for recharging.
Summary: I didn't care for this one. I found the Coby MP-320 to be much better. I liked this one because it takes a battery, but after a couple of weeks use, when I would push the volume up, it began to change songs. I couldn't get the volume high enough for my taste. I wouldn't recommend this one.
Summary: I really like this little player. A nice simple design, and easy to operate, at a reasonable price. It uses a standard sized AAA battery which means you can simply replace it; unlike some chargers where you have to wait to recharge an internal battery and also throw away the player when the battery dies. The only design negative is the battery compartment, which only has a thin piece of plastic at one end, and could break.
Summary: If I were to purchase another cheap MP3 players I might spend another $10-20 for one better reviewed, with a larger screen, and more 'normal' buttons.
Pros: Small and inexpensive. Battery life is pretty good especially for only running on 1 battery.
Cons: I figured it'd be a good deal since realistically I'd only use it a few times a year. But: -The screen is very tiny and you almost never see the full artist, song title or album name without out having to scroll the text. -The buttons have to be pressed very hard and are unpredictable. Because of this operating the device is nearly impossible without looking at it even for basic things like turning up the volume or changing to the next song. -After about 6 uses, about...
Summary: This is the second Coby MP3 player of this kind that I've bought. The first one still works but its over 5 years old and only 256MB. I bought this one to upgrade in terms of capacity (2GB). Why do I love this player so much, its simple, and simple is literally all I need. I use this device while I ride my NINJA I place it in my jeans or in my vest's front pocket and I control it by touch whithout looking at it (I got to pay attention to the road).
Summary: First of all, this can hold something like 900 songs. But for the love of God, DO NOT use that many files! It will be quite a pain in the lower back to navigate through them. However, if you keep it down to 100 songs or so, it really works nicely. It's very compact, but the earbuds suck.
