I give this unit 4 stars, would have been 5 if it wasn't for the cheap battery compartment door and very tiny buttons that need more pressure than I would have expected to work which is most likely going to be the points of failure for most users.

I bought this player to replace my now dead 1 gig ILO player of 4 yrs (RIP).

Overall impression is nice small sleek unit about the size of two thumb drives side by side, a very compact unit. It is a rather basic unit, not much in bells and whistles but that was I was looking for.

Unit does have FM but I have not used it (although I really didn't need FM since it is used inside a metal building which leaves radio reception less than optimal at best).

Unit has several different repeat modes, a power save (On by default, need to turn this off if you want the player to play all day), Folder search.

As some folks have noted, this unit plays files in the order they are copied to the drive, this includes folders so it ignores alphabetical order.

The work around might be to place multiple folders on the drive, name them in numerical order. I have not tried this as of yet since I simply copied my existing folders from my PC to the player which are alphabetical using the album name.

Then name your songs adding in a NUMBER sequence (IE name the file something like MYMUSIC01, 02, 03, ect) This is how I was able to get my ILO to play each song of an album to play in track order rather than alphabetical order.

Also noted by someone else, you do not need to install the Coby Media Manager software.

It does not automatically attempt to install (Coby Media Manager) unless YOU choose to do so.

Folks, READ THE MANUAL, this info IS IN THE MANUAL.

I really enjoy the small Coby MP3 players. Using simple MSC file transfer just like onto a flash drive, I can organize audio files any way I like. I listen to mostly audio books, audio drama, and podcasts, so play lists are not needed.

The basic operating software is the same on the MP315 as on the MP305 model, but with the MP315 model I get about twice the life out of a battery than with the MP305. I get about 8+ hours of play time from a rechargeable AAA battery.

I'm a big fan of MP3 players powered by AAA cells. Using rechargeable NiMH cells, the ongoing operating expense is virtually nil and the player can be instantly 'recharged' by swapping cells. Should the rechargeable cells ever wear out, you don't have to throw away the whole player.

Until they stopped making them, Creative Labs MuVo was the best of this variety. I'm very happy that Coby now makes a suitably sleek, capacious, and inexpensive replacement. The sound from this unit is excellent.

I did not use the provided file management system...I don't know if it's any good or not. As long as one remembers to double click the buttons after a moment of inactivity, the controls are very responsive. I adapted to their layout and operation quickly. I don't think they are any harder to press than the equivalent Creative buttons, and their layout is logical and intuitive, with the track advance button first and the pause/on/off next to it.

Using a 1000mAH NiMH cell, battery life is a lot longer than the advertised eight hours - more than twice as long, I'd say.

Edit: It has been more than a month since my purchase. At this point I'd award six stars if it were possible. This MP3 player has turned out to be more robust and reliable than I had expected. Also, in practical terms, it seems to go all week on one charge of the AAA NiMH cell. I don't know what they've done to reduce power consumption, but it is very effective. One other thing to mention is that while on Pause, one can scroll through the song list extremely rapidly. It doesn't take that much effort or time to find any song, anywhere. Finally, a number of people have commented on how nice it looks. It really does have great lines and is surprisingly compact for an AAA-powered device. FWIW, I just bought three more, for gifts.

The device automatically installs their own "Music Manager".
It is their idea of "iTunes". (Which is exactly what I don't want).
Do yourself a favor and cancel the install. Delete the files off the device.

The previous version from Coby, the MP-305 acted just like a memory stick.
You could use any music manager to sync files, or just drag and drop.

The FM radio on the MP-305 is a little better. It picked up 22 stations, instead of the 17 stations.

Music sounds just a good as my MP-305.

The price is pretty good. A 4GB thumb runs about $5, so an extra $20 you get a radio and an MP3 player.

My first mp3 player. Call me a luddite. But I'm extremely computer savvy - a mid-level übergeek. I'm just old and picky about what I jump into and what I leave be. Now, about the object itself. All the reviewer crits I read in advance have some justification. The buttons are tiny but you can't have a QUERTY keyboard on a BIC lighter-sized object. Yet another oft-repeated complaint was that the buttons seemed unresponsive, requiring several tries to make them work. I, too, found myself pushing them harder until I remembered the admonition, "When all else fails, use brute force."

This thought made me back off for a bit of perspective. Had I tried all else? Not really. Perhaps some tenderness and patience were in order. What I discovered is that this device operates with a measure of "lag time." Once it enters a mode, it takes a few seconds to "settle down." Rapid button pushing on this little tool is about as effective as repeatedly pushing the crosswalk button at the intersection. You don't actually get the traffic to come to a standstill any sooner. So I took to pushing a button, for example, to scroll over to the Folders option. Wait a few seconds, push the button to enter the Folders. If it displays one of the songs in the sub-folders, I scroll up or down until I get to the UP-arrow and wait a couple seconds. Then push the button to enter the actual Folder list. Then wait a second or two and start scrolling through the main folders directory until I arrive at the folder that contains the music I want to listen to at that particular moment. Wait a second or two and then press the button to enter that folder. Scroll down to the first track and press it. Then press Play Now. And I'm good to go.
