  • 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.
