Great little player

John W., Newegg
27 June 2014
  • Pros: This player has been going strong for me after years of constant use. It has excellent battery life and simple controls.
  • Cons: The headphones that came with it were not very comfortable, but just plug in your favorite pair of headphones and you are good to go.

Best thing you can buy for $20 ever

Junk_Product_NO-MORE, Amazon
1 May 2014
  • Summary: Well, I read with amusement all the negative reviews of this little gem. Yes, it is not a MIL SPEC product. On the other hand, I have used for 3 years daily. Battery life still good. Sound quality excellent. I have improvised a clip made from an old employee badge on back. Also I cover the face with clear 3M packing tape. This must be replaced every 6 months or so. Result, NO SCRATCHES to screen after 3 years. You cannot go wrong with this device.

Half worked. Literally.

Darci Keskeys, Amazon
22 January 2014
  • Summary: If I could give this product 0 stars, I would. Sound only worked on on one side, no matter what headphones I used. I guess if I was deaf in one ear, this product would be perfect for me?

Diva, Amazon

  • Summary: Save your money and stop being a cheap like me because one day you really will get what you pay for. -The screen quality is horrible -It is hard to scroll through a find a song -The product constantly rebooted -The sound quality is about 30 years behind(I'm not playing about this) -The headphone jack was cut wrong with mine and the manufacturer headphones would even get stuck to the product All in all I would say stay away from Coby products because everyone I...

For the price it is a great MP3 player and it has other stuff....

K. A. Monson "Keith", Amazon
14 November 2013
  • Summary: It's a great MP3 player/Radio. With a postage stamp sized screen not so much of a picture and video viewer but I guess as a "thumb drive" it is okay for that stuff. I have no need for the voice recorder so I don't know about that. If you made it a mini camera instead of a voice recorder that would be novel.

Defective Item...

sunny "from the sunshine state", Amazon
11 November 2013
  • Summary: The device does not populate with music folders saved .On opening the device it gives an option to "refresh" after which it shows "loading " and after some delay goes back to the original screen. I bought it to play audio books but the problem incurred makes it useless. I will need to return it for a refund.

Good MP3 player / Bad Software

Brandon S., Newegg
6 May 2013
  • Summary: Clunky software is not the vendors fault, and this review should not reflect on them negatively. No soulsucking use agreements, fairly user-friendly once you know how to slam it against the counter properly, all-in-all, slam dunk for the money.
  • Pros: Mp3 is sleek looking, half-decent brand, good storage. Clunky software mentioned in cons section is very easily bypassed (Just drag and drop albums directly to the mp3 player's directory, like a you would a thumbdrive.)
  • Cons: Software application that comes with (the install is on the player itself) is ridiculously counter-intutive and, moreover, clunky. Clunky is the only word I can conceive for it. You can either send it sweeping for audio files on your system where it grabs things like audio files for games and creates duplicates of files it's already swept OR add files, painstakingly, one at a time. There's no clicking a folder and having it add the entire contents, because the "find" ...
