  • Cons: Unintuitive user interface. Video playback freezes. Dismal battery life. Can't charge via PC.

Review: Cowon Q5W 40GB Portable Media Player

10 December 2007
  • Excerpt: With a Windows CE OS, an AMD 600MHz processor, and Wi-Fi web browsing, Cowon’s newest media player seems more like an Ultra Mobile PC than a PMP. And like the poorly received UMPC, the Q5W doesn’t quite deliver on its abundance of promised functionality.
  • Pros: Fantastic audio quality and video playback. Loud, built-in stereo speakers for group viewing parties/rocking out. Support for DivX, XviD, MPEG4, WMV 7/8/9 video files. Bevy of audio formats including: Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, and Monkey’s Audio. Wi-Fi enabled with MSN messenger and Flash-supported web b...
  • Cons: Poor UI coupled with Windows CE 5.0 gives the Q5W the feeling of a shoddily constructed homebrewed device. We got only 4.8 hours of video playback; significantly lower than Cowon’s estimated 7 hours. Aluminum housing gets scorching hot after an hour of video play. No kickstand for hands-free use....

Cowon Q5W review

16 January 2008
  • Summary: Everything, everything, everything – ask a Cowon Q5W what it can do and its answer would likely be along the lines of the intro to Underworld's classic Cowgirl . It might also add that, unlike the Archos range, it packs GPS into its bulging feature suitcase.

Cowon Q5W

10 August 2008
  • Summary: Dette er langt mer enn bare en mediespiller. Den har svært mange funksjoner deriblant nettleser og MSN via innebygd Wi-Fi nettverk. Cowon Q5 har en imponerende berøringsskjerm som er super til å se film på. Men testens høyeste pris gjør at spilleren ikke når lenger opp i vår test.

CHIP Online
25 June 2008
  • Conclusion: Der Cowon Q5W eignet sich hervorragend zum Video schauen, surfen per WLAN und auch zum Musikhören. Trotz der hervorragenden Werte bleibt der Player aber Geschmackssache, durch Größe und Gewicht ist er einfach ziemlich wuchtig.
  • Pros: Herausragendes Display, Sehr gute Ausstattung, Ausreichend Speicher, Gute Bedienbarkeit, Klares Audiosignal
  • Cons: Groß und schwer
