Don't purchase this item

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: I ordered this item for my son for Christmas. I should have returned it but time slipped away. It worked fine in the beginning but a few weeks after purchasing it, it would turn itself off. About a month after purchasing it, it froze up. Tried resetting it and that worked for about 5 minutes then it froze back up. Tried looking for firmware to update but there is none. So now I have a uselss mp3 player that won't even turn on. I am so disappointed in this item.

Amazing!

Dragonfly, Amazon

  • Summary: Length:: 8:38 Mins It's a good deal and I'm satisfied with my purchase. I bought two, one for me and one for my sister, and both work great. You can play music, videos, photos, radio, text, and LRC files. The extra stuff they included isn't perfect, but I may just be nitpicky. I went into more detail in the video. I forgot to mention.. The battery lasts for a long time, unless you're watching videos (videos use up a lot of battery).

Low budget

  • Summary: What can you expect from a company that is built on Trademark confusion. COBY SONY I think next time I'll stick to Panosonik, Mangivox or Sangsung.

Not Happy

Danielle M. Deen, Amazon
14 December 2009
  • Summary: This is the first mp3 player that I have had since my ipod. The thing I liked about the ipod was that I felt it was easy to use and to create play lists that were easily accessable on the device. (I like my music to be organized and like to listen to a variety of artists depending on my mood which makes the play lists good). I tried using the software that came with the player and this was completely useless.

Coby MP3 Player

scoobie6148, Ebay

  • Summary: I love the larger screen and the sound quality.I also love the touch screen, not hard to navigate. Easy to download songs too. Wish it had a clip included or arm band to put player in.I bought as a gift for my daughter who jogs and thought this would be perfect because it is so lightweight and slim enough to put right in your pocket but also stylish enough to want to shoe off.

You get what you pay for...

  • Summary: I chose this 8gb Coby because I was looking for some way to carry my music around without bowing to King Apple by default. This product seceded in providing me a legitimate alternative to the ominous iPod series, but in giving me something I absolutely loved, it failed. It had a couple big problems and a thousand little things that left me torn on whether it was worth the $100 I spent for it. Pros: It looks cool. Nice big screen. The touch screen is a nifty feature.

Was a No Show

T. Gonzalez "memyselfandi", Amazon
13 October 2009
  • Summary: I bought this locally at a discount store; got it home, read the instructions. Per the instructions I charged it for 8 hours. Then I pressed the power button and ... nothing. Again and again I pressed the buttion and nothing. I brought it back and got the 4 GB touchpad player with video and FM radio; it works like a charm. Too bad Coby is so consistently inconsistent in its quality.

Disappointed

Pumpkin "Pie", Amazon
26 March 2009
  • Summary: This was the most disappointing purchase ever. The menu is not acessible unless you power down the mp3 and start all over again. That was annoying. The hardware was of poor quality. The power guage popped right off the contraption. So now there was no way to shut the thing off. Needless to say I sent that piece of junk right back.
