Summary: I thought I'd rated this when I bought it, but I guess not. I bought this player specifically for use with audiobooks and it was completely useless for that purpose. There is no way to get the tracks to play in sequence. Customer "support" was non-existent and I ended up returning this. I realize this model probably isn't even available anymore, but if it is, you need to be aware of its rather substantial shortcomings.
Summary: purchase for my sisters daughter bought it in april 2008 she still has it! she hasn't need to purchase another mp3 player since then.. back then touchscreen wasn't really on mp3 players so it was ahead of it time... but for it lasting so long that also tells you how it was built . i love this company but sadly i am unable to find out the newer models especially a newer model of this one www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003ODHVV6/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_83 ..
Summary: This is a bit outdated now seeing how I purchased it a few years ago but I have been happy with it and still use it. Never had an issue. It works great to plug in SD cards from my camera that is not compatible with my computer.
Summary: This is probably being surpassed by the iPod and iPhone, but I just love it. It has great sound quality and a number of equalizers to enhance the kind of music you listen to. It is an older device, but it carries my favorite music. Like any MP3 player today it can be patched through my car's speakers. Transferring information is not as easy as the iPod, but the sound quality is better.
Summary: I previously owned a Cowon U2, Very small but excellent quality. I was looking for something with a bigger display and more features. The Cowon D2 does that and more. Lots of features, music, movies, pictures, audible, fm radio, voice recorder, notepad, newer firmware has 2 calculators, constant firmware upgrades. There is a little learning curve to figure out everything it has and how to use it (the owners manual does not give a lot of info).
Love it for Ebooks, Music, Videos, Games, Dictionary

Summary: I love this little player and am really happy I chose this to replace my Creative Zen Nano Plus. I actually got to liking it so much, I gave my Creative Zen Vision M to my sister when she looked longingly at it and asked why I needed 2 video devices lol. Anyway, I primarily use the player to read books via the text reader and listen to music.
Summary: Great player at a great price. I took the time to review other similar players and I am very satisfied with my purchase. I have an Ipod Nano as well and dealing with the "Rules" of the Itunes store, its much better to go with this type of player. Basically, if you can convert it to a compatible format, you can put it on this player. You can't go wrong with the features on this player. Very satisfied.
Summary: The only complaints I have about this mp3 player is that it is a tad heavy and the FM reception is not that strong. Also you have to buy a line-in converter seperately in order to use the line-in recording. But I love the touch screen and all the different options and ways to personalize it.
Summary: I searched a long time for a player that would play ALL audiobook formats and finally found this one. It plays Audible and all the free books from the library as well as any other sources I have been able to find such as podcasts and free university lectures. I have tried a Rio, Ipod, Creative Zen and a Zune. None of them have been able to handle the number of different formats as effortlessly as the D2. The touch screen is great.
