Summary: Most amazing sound quality I've ever experienced in a portable music player, and I've had several Zens and iPods. The only thing I would change is that it's incredibly light, which ought to be a plus, but a nice metal casing would go a long way to making this thing feel like the expensive treasure that it is.
Summary: I think this is a great player. I've had it about a year and a half and I love it. For trips I can load Podcasts, books, and movies with plenty of room for my SciFi audio mp3's and all my music. I sometimes use it to record my own tunes from my home studio and have a mobile unit I can keep handy. I've used it to record real time classes and sermons. Recording directly to the unit lacks quality as expected but is adequate for info. The sound is amazing.
Pros: Completely overshadowed by Cowon's horrible service.
Cons: My player broke just after the warranty. Cowon charged me $55 to replace an internal electronic part. A little while later the same part broke again. Cowon told me they discontinued that part because it was faulty. My unit is now worthless.
