Company No Longer Exists

Douglas Lonngren, Amazon
9 March 2015
  • Summary: Proceed with caution if you decide to buy this, especially if the price keeps going up. The manufacturer, Coby, no longer exists so there is no support for firmware downloads, etc.

This is a great MP3 player

1973, Amazon
22 December 2014
  • Summary: This is a great MP3 player. The best I have ever had. Lasts over a year, very durable, uses up very little battery and uses AAA which is great because you can get a AAA anywhere if your battery runs out.

Best cost-effective choice if you're tired of expensive players breaking

Bucket Weeble, Amazon
5 December 2014
  • Summary: You know what I like most about this thing? It does exactly what I want it to do-- play my music-- without the headphones jack breaking, the buttons breaking, the battery compartment breaking or the special rechargeable battery needing replacement, the touch screen going unresponsive, the whole...

Although Coby is not known as a great brand name for quality and reliability

Jane, Amazon
30 August 2014
  • Summary: I had a previous model for about 6 years and I drive a lot for work. Although Coby is not known as a great brand name for quality and reliability, my previous MP3 player put in about 2500-3000 hrs of use before the screen went blank (6 mos later it died completely).

You get what you pay for.

Joe, Amazon
12 August 2014
  • Summary: (First off, Coby Electronics has shut down, so you won't be able to get software updates or any tech support should you run into a problem.) . Pros: It's small It's light It can hold a lot of music Cons: The software is buggy and nearly impossible to use (this may be a Mac compatibility problem; it...

but the electronic aspect was fine a day later after it had time to dry

Heather Defabis, Amazon
26 July 2014
  • Summary: There is not a shuffle option for this MP3 player and selecting songs can be a bit awkward at times. Sometimes you will need to toy with the volume option before they will play properly. I forgot about this little guy in my pocket one time and accidently put it through the wash.

Best budget player around

Patrick, Amazon
19 July 2014
  • Summary: This little thing has been great! Granted, it's a bit "old-school", insofar as it uses a AAA battery and the simple interface/screen graphics remind me of my first mp3 player from over ten years ago; but when it comes to getting the job done, it works perfectly and I've found it far superior to the...

Fine at first.

-, Amazon
24 April 2014
  • Summary: Easy to load audio files. Good sound. Unfortunately, after about six months, it gave up the ghost. I replaced it with a 4.3" android from Odd Lots for $39. With a micro SD slot, I've got not only hundreds of songs and audio books, but loads of ebooks too. I'll never go back to a straight MP3 player.

Works but no radio and folder navigation is tricky

David Searl, Amazon
20 April 2014
  • Summary: I accidentally purchased this model instead of the nearly identical Coby with an FM radio, bummer. But the two stars are because the folder navigation is very unintuitive and after reading the instructions you still can't avoid a bunch of button jamming.
