Summary: I am very disappointed with this product as it did not work out of the box. I only wish I could recommend this item, but all I can say is, be careful when ordering from this seller and make sure you check whether the item works before the returns expiry date.
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. Usually I make it about 18 months, but this one crapped out after only two months. Unbelievable even for Cowon. If you get a Cowon product, don't forget the Squaretrade warranty. I think this is the end of me supporting their lackluster products.
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. Battery life is crappy, although this may be due to the fact that I can't even figure out how to turn it off easily(wtf?).
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. needless to say I am not happy at all after having spent so much money on something that I now cannot use.
Summary: The touch screen won't respond until I press the screen hard enough that almost can break it. Touch and scroll is really painful. I'm going to return it. Btw, the player doesn't support 64GB micro SD.
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). I did enjoy the responsiveness of the device while I had worked, and the screen resolution is more than acceptable despite some professional reviewers may have commented.
Summary: I purchased this item because of the very positive reviews it gets for its audio playback quality and the fact it can play FLAC audio files. There are no real instructions with the player and the ones on the website are simply a .PDF version of the ones that came with the player. I've had the thing for over a month, but since I can't figure out how to get it to play anything more than one track at a time, it's not getting much use at all.
Summary: this device worked for five minutes. after unplugging the usb cable post loading music it froze up and would not restart. reconnecting it to my mac and attempting to reset it did nothing to help it. had to send it back for refund after wasting hours and hours trying to get it to reboot.
