I had one just like this with only(!) 2GB only it was a Rixxo Mambo brand. The functionality was identical though the buttons are differently placed. My son broke his (he's not real gentle with stuff) so I gave him mine and bought this. It plays MP3s and WMAs very well. I use it through my car radio (external input on the front) and it sounds beautifully clear and clean. It also plays podcasts very nicely so that when you turn it off then on in the middle of one it picks up exactly where it left off - almost to the syllable. Doubles as a USB drive if you mistreat it as my son did and break a button.

It also claims the ability to delete songs without going to iTunes or WMP on your computer and the ability to jump to different folders according to the well written instructions though I don't use those features since I just want to hear whatever I put on in any old order. Since it is about 1/4-th the cost of the 4GB iPod or Zune I am quite happy with it.

The output connector is at one of the ends so the headphone jack goes in straight with the body. This makes it easy to fit in my pocket when I'm at the gym listening through my big Sennheiser headphones. Next to the headphone jack is a small ring for some thin thread or wire or something so you can attach some holder.

4GB is about 1,000 MP3 tunes for me at 160-192 Kbps, tunes being 2 to 12 minutes long, mostly 3 minutes. That is a lot, and I'm finally getting to hear my 3 star selections instead of the same 500 5-star selections.

I had some trouble with WMP at first not seeing some of the tunes I had loaded from my other computer so I reformatted it as if it were an external drive (which it is) and reloaded everything and then it was fine. Likely a WMP issue.

The connection to the computer is USB 2.0 and it connects like a USB drive - take off one end protector and stick the whole thing in. It also has a USB cable if the angles are wrong for sticking it directly in.

The MP3 player is easy to use. Although it's a MP3 player, it's still a memory stick so to think of it as only a MP3 player will make it difficult to figure out how to use.

When putting songs into the player, the order the songs are put in is the order they will appear. If Track 2 is put before Track 1, Track 2 will be played before 1. If you want to play songs according to the album or artist, you have to make a folder first. After putting the songs in their respecitive folders, it's simple to have them played. Let's say you want to play the folder where the artist is XYZ. First, play a song in that folder. Second, go to the menu, then settings, then select Dir normal, in which Dir stands for Directory. The player will then ONLY play songs in that folder. If you picked, dir repeat or dir shuffle, ONLY songs in that folder will be repeated or shuffled, depending on which option you picked.

If you think of it as only a MP3 player, you will never be able to figure out out to get it to work. You need to think of it as a memory stick first and MP3 player second.

Size: 4 GB Verified Purchase
I bought the 1GB player at Walgreen's on sale for $19 and loved it so much that I 'up-graded' to the 4GB player which I ordered from Amazon this summer. I own a 2007 Toyota Yaris with an aux input plug that will absolutely not work with my iPods, but works perfectly with the Coby MP3 players.

There are many bells 'n' whistle features on the screen, which makes it a bargain - you can see the track, the artist name, time elapsed, which number track in the album and what the number the song is in the entire memory, battery life, whether it's on repeat, etc. There's a way to set the equalizer, the background colors, just about everything you can think of to tweak.

Some reviewers complain that it isn't a rugged case, but it's made from thick, hard plastic and it gets its share of bouncing around in my car and it isn't even scratched yet.

The positives:

Price per gig is incredible
Tough plastic case
Loads of features
AAA battery instead of USB charging
Sound quality better than I would expect
Solid buttons and headphone connector (nothing loosy-goosy)
Loading with Windows Media Player files is super-fast and easy
Cute style (in my opinion)

The negatives:

No iTunes compatability (at least that I could figure out)
Navigating the file structure takes practice (rather irregular)
AAA battery life isn't as long as an iPod's (I get about 8 hours per battery)
Long-term satisfaction is not known, as I've only had this player a couple of months
Unit weighs a lot more than a comparable iPod (partly due to the battery)making it less 'wearable' than an iPod shuffle or Sansa clip.

This is a great little mp3 player for it's price. It's very tiny....a bit bigger than a larger sized lip stick tube... that makes it great for working out. Which is exactly what I use it for. In the past, I've owned Coby's MPC840 (much smaller capacity)....and the similarly designed mp3 player still works without a flaw years later. I've also owned a 20gb iriver (now upgraded to a 60gb Zune) that I will not part with, but this little Coby is a great secondary option because it is a great size to use when running or on an eliptical or even weight training. I also use it when I bowl (controled noise). Toss it in your pocket, attach it to your wrist with a strap thru the built in loop, use a lanyard, or even get a pair of Y ear buds that allow the little guy to just hang around your neck.

Now they make this exact player in numerous size capacities to fit your individual needs. I opt'ed for the larger 4gb one becuase its a great price for the size (I say 'no' to ipod). If you are using it for the examples I gave, then you could probably get away with a smaller sized one (save a few bucks) because the average work out is 12-18 songs long....maybe less, depending on your schedule. Buying the larger sized 4gb mp3 player (like I did) would really only be needed for the convenience of tossing it on shuffle (which this player does have) and not have to worry about getting tired of the songs for a few weeks.

Whats even nicer is the simplicity of it. There are no cables to loose or search for. They include a cable in the packaging, but it is not needed. Just pull off the end cap, and attach it to your PC. The usb connector is right there, built in. The controls are easy to master... even if you aren't a gadget junky and you need simple things in life. :) The buttons are all on the top.
