Cowon O2 Noreve Case Review

Anything but iPod
30 March 2009
  • Excerpt: Sure we have plenty of complaints about Cowon O2 mainly dealing with the user interface , but in the end is still a respectable PMP with the signature warm sound typical to Cowon. The O2 is too big to fit in your pocket which makes it a good candidate for a protective case since its likely to tossed...

Cowon O2

PC Magazine
20 March 2009
  • Conclusion: The O2's file support is fantastic, and it is cheaper than its two main competitors, the iPod touch and the Archos 5—but it packs far fewer features into its inexplicably large frame.

Anything but iPod
14 January 2009

  • Pros: Plays lots of video formats without converting, good subtitle support, Plays almost every audio format known to man, Good sound quality and BBE enhancements (for audio only), Ingenious “recent files” list, File/folder browsing, UMS/MSC mass storage class, works on any operating system, Flash memo...

LAPTOP Magazine
4 December 2008
  • Summary: Though its touch interface doesn't match that of the iPod touch, the $219 Cowon O2 is a good choice for those who want a bigger display, broader format support, and expandable memory--but find the Archos 5 too large and expensive.

CNET
27 October 2008
  • Summary: If you download a lot of content from the Internet, we've got to say that unless you can afford the more costly alternatives mentioned above, this is one of the best candidates for the job
  • Pros: Huge list of supported audio and video formats; terrific sound quality; supports 720p HD DivX and Xvid content; Subtitle support.
  • Cons: We've seen crisper screens; plastic design isn't as sexy as the Cowon A3's enclosure.

  • Summary: Carting around enough music, flicks and photos to keep you satisfied for the best part of a month was something media addicts could only dream of just a few years ago. But thanks to Archos , a new PMP arrives at Stuff Towers once every 20 minutes.

PC Pro
26 November 2008
  • Conclusion: Not the prettiest personal media player around, but a decent screen, excellent sound quality and a list of supported files as long as your arm, it's a good all-rounder.
