I learned the hard way

B. Hristov, Amazon
22 October 2012
  • Summary: Only after I returned it I cared to read the review at AnythingButiPod [dot]com and found every little detail in that review to match my experience with the V5. I've had to deal with Cowon customer service for my X5 back in the day (new battery) and I know I don't ever want to deal with these...

Most excellent device

  • Summary: I have a v5 white 16g as well. There is simple not a better video and music player on the market. As the previous reviewer stated, this is not a phone, not a tablet, just a media player.

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, Amazon
11 March 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 R., Amazon
11 March 2011
  • 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.

An absolutely wonderful device!

Thomas Votik, Amazon
11 March 2011
  • 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!

Great Deal on Great Cowon Portable Media Player

Brandon, Amazon
5 February 2011
  • Summary: The Cowon V5 is the best video mp3 player I've ever owned. It has all the features I could want and works for all my multimedia needs. The price for the refurbished one I bought was at a good price. There was nothing wrong with it when it came in the mail, it was practically brand new.

Excellent sound

T. Sanders, Amazon

  • Summary: The Cowon V5 is the best sounding PMP I have ever owned. The preset audio tweaks great. The video player was great too I didn't use it much but i was able to download some files from videos from youtube and play them. The reason for purchase was mainly for MP3 player.
