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!
Summary: This is the Third unit I have bought from cowon I have owned The A3 and the Q5 the cowon Q5 is total trash and was a waste of money while The A3 was great with decent battery life but it's headphone output jack just died on me so it was time for a new unit.
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.
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.
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.

Summary: "The Cowon V5 is more or less a clean winner. We say more or lessas it lacks a very important aspect of connectivity and that is wi-fi or 3G. But that apart, the V5 is a top notch media player with a simple GUI, great picture quality and a respectabl ... Read more e audio quality.
