Cowon Q5W Review

28 January 2008
  • Conclusion: The bottom line is that the Cowon Q5W is more expensive and more complicated than it ought to be. Hardware-wise, it’s big and heavy, and the touchscreen really requires the stylus to be effective. Software-wise, this thing is kind of a nightmare, but we’d be willing to forgive Cowon if they’d update the firmware with a redesigned interface minus the seemingly redundant settings menus.
  • Pros: Plenty of features; excellent audio and video quality
  • Cons: Sluggish response; heavy and clunky; poor interface
