Good product that has room for improvements to make it great.

Summary: The resistive touch-screen took some getting used to, but can be navigated with something as simple as an eraser (I had some wooden pencils lying around and managed to put them to use again). The battery came partially charged and quickly filled up when I plugged it in to my computer. Even now, I have yet to charge it again.

Summary: This item is abysmal. After firmware updated and several resets, this unit would not come on. It would only show a partial boots then freeze. I've install some really good classic music and will have to listen via my laptop/tablet. No Windows program would recoqnize. No driver. This might be my last Cowon purchase. Ordered a Sony Walkman model instead. Stay away, worthless! LRB.
Summary: I love Cowon by quality frequence performance playback. I bought used “X9" with dead battery. For date of writing this review of 10/4/2014 on internet literally doesn’t exist battery replacement option. I can’t help myself read “this one” as critical Cowon care for customers. Recommendation: Do you want play MP3? Stay away from the Cowon.
Summary: The touch screen is extremely slow and not responsive to the touch. The Operating manual is vague and incomplete. The operating system is slow and cumbersome. The reason I give it 2 stars is the sound quality is very good. Although I did not use the item long, the battery held up excellently. But the entire operating system is not what I expected in today's world of ease of operation. Will return.
Summary: In quality and excellent sound fidelity. Something to improve the screen is slow and has low resolution. Should improve the software and place a better touch screen. In very good sound fidelity.
