Summary: Cowon A2 is the best media player on the market. It has a built in Video recorder and you can record directly from the TV or DVD player. It also records and stores around 2000 songs and holds hundreds of pictures. Much better than a MP3 or MP4 player. Would even give a ipod a run for the money.
Summary: I bought the A2 nearly two months ago. It is a really nice portable media player. It has bright and beautiful colors. It plays music wonderfully. It also displays great looking pictures. The recording of video clips is exquisite. Overall, a truly good device.
Summary: Every month, manufacturers unleash even more MP3 players to an increasingly confused public. Not only do these devices have wildly divergent features, but ongoing format wars mean the MP3 player you choose dictates where you can buy your digital music. These devices are anything but one-size-fits-all. First, there's the question of design.
Excerpt: I bought the Cowon A2 about a year ago and I must say that I am very impressed with the product. It is quite expensive compared to other portable video players out there and the hard drive is rather small also (20 & 30GB) but these things aside, the Cowon A2 is a great player. The Cowon A2 is comfortable in the hand with the buttons just at the right place if you are right-handed. Although some might say the Cowon A2 is quite heavy, I personally didn't find this.
Pros: Looks nice, will play anything you throw at it, excellent video quality
Excerpt: Why didn't I get an iPod like everyone else? Why not an Archos? I guess I just wanted to be different like always. I wanted to buy a brand of PMP (Portable Media Player) that no one has heard of and yeah, take a gamble. I'm glad I did! I got my Cowon A2 (30Gb) in February last year and am still a firm believer that this product is just as good, if not better, than an iPod. It has so many features it is astounding!
Pros: Fantastic quality on video, audio, photos and text . Loads of extras built in
Cons: Could have a larger hard drive but i'm just being picky !
Summary: Klasse Teil, gut Klangqualität und übersichtliches und großes Display, lange Akkulaufzeit und für mich wichtig ein Video Line IN. Damit kann man auch von externen Videoquellen aufnehmen. Eingebautes Radio hat guten Empfang. Die 30 GB sind schon fast voll. Nur der Neupreis ist arg happig, aber gebraucht ist er das Geld wert.
