Summary: do not like it would never get another one! actually hate this product! everyone clowns on the zune but that was the best mp3 player that i ever had! i lost it on a flight about a year ago... this device shuts down on me, locks up, freezes up, is slow, bulky, and the battery is bad....
Great sound but constant, irritating glitches and freezes

Summary: First, I'll start with the positive: the sound, like with most Cowon devices, is incredible. This is my third one; I've tried Apple and Samsung and Sony but none of them sound as good as these. This is the only reason I'm giving two stars.

Summary: I am using the Cowon D3 Plenue 32GB 3.7-Inch Internet Tablet with Android (Purple) with S/PDIF audio output to power the S/PDIF input of a FiiO E17. It sounds excellent. The processor is slow, of course, but this is the only unit in it's price class I could find at this time with this type of...
Summary: Great sound at a good price, and with Android onboard, much easier to navigate than my Cowon J3. Slightly larger, and heavier than my J3, but certainly not enough to make it cumbersome to use. Wifi works just fine, though I probably won't ever use it. All in all, a solid performer.
Summary: hell and heaven. excelent sound! A lot of options for custom. ok there. i think that cowon in quality sound cant be beated in massive devices. BUT... oh my! the ui, like almost all cowons stuff is awfull.
Summary: My cowon s9 was stolen, and i bougth the D3 but i don't like( but is better then iPod). The cowon D3 is slow for android, i prefer the simple S9 only for music. Pro. The sound is equal tan S9. A+++ Screen is detail Cons Slow, very slow. Battery life only 9 hours. My S9 had 36 hours.
Nice Player but it has a learning curve to tackle first.

Summary: At first I would give this just 2 stars but after reading some forums on the D3 I have learned some work-arounds and now I am fairly happy. The problem with my unit was frequent resets and it not recognizing my 32 gig sd card.
Summary: i bought this to replace my A5IT, since it was the only device with comparable storage. unfortunately, it has been a considerable let down. with micro sd card, every time you turn it on, it gets super hot and scans the card for between 30 and 45 minutes, it will not play any music until this tasks...
Summary: Well, my first gen Zune 30gb mp2 player died a little bit ago after like seven years of constant use and no problems. I went to Walmart to buy something non-Apple to discover Walmart carried nothing but Ipods. So I bought an Ipod touch for 190 bucks.
Great player for audio playback. However, I prefer the more expensive Z2.

Summary: Conclusion: Based on sound quality and price, I give the D3 four stars. If I listen to a cello, I hear the bow attack the string, I hear the string vibrate and I hear the cello resonate. I rarely hear such detail and clarity without paying a lot more money.
