An absolutely wonderful device!

Thomas Votik, Amazon
25 May 2012
  • Summary: I was a big fan of the O2PMP. Once I bought this, I knew it was mostly an upgraded version of the O2, but it still doesn't disappoint! The codecs featured are more robust and I have not found a video file it won't play. It plays everything!

was good for 3 days

  • Summary: I think the protective case should be shipped with the player. I had it for 3 days and then the screen cracked when I had it in my backpocket and sat down and I'm a normal guy, not fat. It should not crack that way, period. Didn't even bother to have it replaced for $190.

Brittle LCD Screen

Amazon Customer "Ambelamba", Amazon
24 October 2011
  • Summary: Cowon V5 media player can play MKV files, which is really hard with iPod Touch. (you need a third party app to play those files, and the performance sucks.) The real problem with this gadget is that the screen is very easy to be cracked, and the repair cost is almost $190 just to replace the screen.

Works great on the ground, not in the air.

Michael Ramthun, Amazon
19 August 2010
  • Summary: I've had this for a good 3 months now and everything seemed to be working fine. Then I took a plane to California and the touch screen does not work while up in the air. When I got back on the ground everything worked fine. Other than that this is a great media player.

Cowon V5 disappoints and frustrates

Alexander B., Newegg
10 July 2010
  • Summary: The biggest problem is that my V5 is irritatingly uncooperative at random intervals (just now, the device decided to become unresponsive to touch screen input, even with the stylus, leaving me no option other than to turn it off and wait a for it to decide to start working again later).
  • Pros: Wealth of audio formats accepted (especially Flac, and OGG) Superior audio quality Very pretty video Huge screen
  • Cons: Shockingly, Cowon has come out with a very disappointing V5, despite enticements such as the gorgeous screen, DivX video, and stellar audio playback. User interface is somewhat irritating (the plethora of non-working icons crammed onto the main menu for "cutesy" effect) Icons are, in some cases, ...

  • Summary: Newegg needs to carry more model's Of Conwon!!!!!!
  • Pros: Finally a true I-pod replacement with louder music output. I purchased a Zune and the volume output was not very high. This products output is nice. Conwon makes the best multimedia products hands down!
  • Cons: None

  • Excerpt: Плеер куплен в конце 2010г. Моему экземпляру уже почти 3,5 года. Это достаточный отрезок времени чтоб здраво рассуждать о достоинствах и недостатках аппарата. Плеер работает, никаких нареканий нет вообще, звук всё так-же радует, прошивка не глючит.
  • Pros: Качество изготовления, звук, эргономика на высоте, достаточно удобное и интуитивно понятное меню, проработанная система энергопотребления (в режиме просмотра видео при яркости 4-5 из 10 продержался более 8 часов, видео было не HD)
  • Cons: Нашёл только один, небольшой угол обзора по вертикали, при просмотре видео практически не портит впечатления об аппарате. Для кого-то покажется мелким шрифт, мне в самый раз. ; Спустя несколько месяцев плеер перестал читать некоторые видеофайлы которые раньше читал на раз. Проблема решилась ...

  • Excerpt: не особо в курсе остальных функций (видео, игры, что там ещё есть) — мне была нужна только музыка. брал за 6 кусков, и на следующий день на яндекс-маркете цена стала 9000 к счастью, уже продал его, после того как в достаточной мере получил этот бесценный жизненный опыт.
  • Pros: + звук, вроде как, немного мощнее, чем у обычных плееров и телефонов всяких; ; насчёт детальности не берусь утверждать, слепые тесты не проводил. но особых проблем с ней тоже не замечал; ; + можно поставить пароль, чтобы кто попало не мог просто так включить плеер — штука сомнительной важности, т...
  • Cons: - интерфейс настолько ужасен, что ничего хуже ещё никогда не видел; по кнопкам невозможно попасть. К тому же отсутствует аппаратная кнопка паузы/продолжения. Хотя бы громкость догадались вынести на аппаратные кнопки. ; - где плейлисты? не стоит искать, их нет. если захочется играть подряд X треко...
