Summary: First off, the sound quality is phenomenal, which is what has made this experience so painful. My previous mp3 players have lasted me years, but this one started to degrade almost immediately. The screen would register touch an inch(!
Summary: Like all Cowon products, amazing DAC and file-format support, with very poor hardware and UI design, both of which all of us music purists tolerate for the former qualities. But also like all Cowon products, it breaks quickly.
Summary: I was convinced to buy this due to a recommendation from a tech savvy teenager but have not really been able to get much functionality out of it since purchasing it 6 months ago. The screens are confusing and not logical to get to music and I need to look up a user manual every time I use it.
Summary: I used it for a while . I had problems with the battery . it just quit on me and now does not hold a charge . I contacted the company about a month ago on their website. I am still waiting for a reply.
Summary: Do not buy any cowon mp3.I get stuck with my X7,not being able to find a replacement battery any where in the net.No support from amazon ( The middleman).Why buy from Amazon if it's dealing with cowen who do not support what it is selling.
Summary: I don't hate the player, I hate its reliability. Device arrived on Thursday. Charged it Friday. Watched the pre-loaded demo videos and listened to the demo songs Saturday. Did not use it Sunday. Device would no longer turn on Monday. This was with the latest firmware installed (2.02).
