Large capacity, but a little behind the technology times.

Excerpt: The Coby PMP-3520 appealed to me first for its 20GB capacity. Wow - I can fit a LOT of songs on there! I got it at a great bargain (retail was just under $400), brand new, but I realize now that it must have been a discontinued model. It plays movies on a 3x2" screen, records your voice, acts as a photo frame, and includes an SD/MMC card slot. Now that I've been using it for about 3 months, I'm not quite as pleased as I hoped. Not that it's a bad machine.
Summary: I generally do not review products but this copy needs an alert to consumers. Does not record most videos and when it does the picture quality is grainy. Will not read a picture that has over 8gb. As MP3 player, it is ok but why spend so much for a bulky Mp3 player when you can buy one less that 30 bucks. I own one and willing to give it away if recepient will pay for shipping. Useless useless useless. Buyer be aware.
Summary: We use these coby's reference to make daily hidens records, 6 months ago we bought the first player, we use it every day and its running perfectly. We recomend it, by price/benefit relation you ever win. Camilo Perea Mystery Shopper Co.
Summary: Despite the limited number of reviews I found on this product (all bad), I bought 2 of them for my daughters anyway. We have been playing with them a few days now, and I am satisfied. The MP3 and AVI file names have to be short and the video has to be converted to .AVI, if not already. I use a little free program that converts Divx or Xvid programs to .AVI and all play great on the player.
Summary: Bought this device and had high hope to play many different audio and video file formats. Turned out, it can only play .avi file and nothing else. Even regular mp3 music files cannot be recognized by the player. I check the Coby website and there are nothing to support this device, not a manual, not a firmware, absolutely nothing. Don't waste your money.
