I chose this 8gb Coby because I was looking for some way to carry my music around without bowing to King Apple by default. This product seceded in providing me a legitimate alternative to the ominous iPod series, but in giving me something I absolutely loved, it failed. It had a couple big problems and a thousand little things that left me torn on whether it was worth the $100 I spent for it.

Pros:

It looks cool.

Nice big screen.

The touch screen is a nifty feature.

I like the versatility of the unit. It can carry music, pictures, video, text and it has a radio.

It has dedicated volume buttons on the side. With iPods you use the wheal to adjust the volume, but only when the screen is on the song playing. So, if you want to crank it up while you're scrolling through other music, you've got a problem.
The drag and drop function makes transferring music a snap, forget the hassle of dealing with iTunes.

Cons:

BATTERY:
The first thing I noticed is the dismal battery life, about 3 to 4 hours. That could never ever stand up to iPod's 24 hours.

TOO SMALL:
Before I even had it, I couldn't find anywhere that sold the 16gb version. With the 8, I felt like I had no breathing room.

NO ALBUM ART:
This is nitpicking, buts it's pretty dumb when half of the screen is devoted to the album art if it won't even display it. Out of my 50 some odd albums only 5 or 6 of them showed the pictures.

LYRIC RECOGNITION:
The lyric recognition is a joke. Plain and simple, it doesn't work. I fiddled with it and fiddled with it and just concluded it was a publicity stunt.

USB:
I had heard about this problem on a couple other mp3 players.

It's a good deal and I'm satisfied with my purchase. I bought two, one for me and one for my sister, and both work great.

You can play music, videos, photos, radio, text, and LRC files. The extra stuff they included isn't perfect, but I may just be nitpicky. I went into more detail in the video.

I forgot to mention..
The battery lasts for a long time, unless you're watching videos (videos use up a lot of battery). The recharger they include can only connect to a USB port, so your computer must be on for you to recharge it. Fortunately, the video player uses the same charger as the T-mobile cell phone, so if you have one of those...

And I'm really sorry about the accent. I put subtitles on just in case.

Summary of video review:
TOUCHSCREEN FUNCTION: Perfect
MUSIC: Perfect
LRC: Good. No problems. You might have a hard time finding .lrc files online though. It's probably best to just make them yourself. When making them, you have to enter spaces to ensure the words don't get cut off by the 28 character per line requirement (see "text" info below)
VIDEO: Good. Plays video nicely. CONS - A black 2cm pixel thing shows up on the upper left corner during light flashes in the video
RADIO: Good. The title tags don't change when the song changes unless you change stations and come back.
PHOTOS: Perfect
TEXT: So-so. Words are cut off if they don't fit into the 28 character per line requirement ("anyway" gets cut with "anyw" at the end of a line, and "ay" at the beginning of the next line)

DURABILITY: Pretty good. I've dropped mines onto the sidewalk 2X while jogging, and it's still okay.
OTHER CONS: Once you turn it off, and turn it on again, it won't continue where you left off. If you were listening to a particular song, you have to go back through the menu to get it playing again.

This was the most disappointing purchase ever. The menu is not acessible unless you power down the mp3 and start all over again. That was annoying.
The hardware was of poor quality. The power guage popped right off the contraption. So now there was no way to shut the thing off. Needless to say I sent that piece of junk right back.

This is the first mp3 player that I have had since my ipod. The thing I liked about the ipod was that I felt it was easy to use and to create play lists that were easily accessable on the device. (I like my music to be organized and like to listen to a variety of artists depending on my mood which makes the play lists good). I tried using the software that came with the player and this was completely useless. KI would make a play list and sync it up and nothing would transfer with the play list it was all separate and off of the main menu ( you would think it would put it under music in thje main menu right....nope. I tried with windows media player and that didn't work either. So I finally copy and pasted to it from the drive menu on the computer and that seemed to work, although I'm not happy with the way the player names the files that are transffered to it. So now that I thought I finally figured this thing it out...it keeps freezing, and now won't turn on at all. It is nice that it has a speaker on the outside and a radio feature, and pictures look good on the display. Wanting this mostly for music I am very disappointed.
