3.0 out of 5 stars Good value, but.., November 19, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Coby MP620-4GBLU 1.8 Inch 4GB Video MP3 Player - Blue (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
I have been using ths device for about 3 weeks already, and the following are the pro's and con's I encountered while using this device:

Pros:
-Cheap
-looks good, nice sleek and proffessional design
-nice UI interface
-radio
-battery life (all day non-stop playing and quick charge)
-light and slim

Cons:
- horrible headphones (no ear bud broke within an hour of first using it, the other 3 weeks after), but average sound quality. Recommend buying separate durable ear buds.
- Takes a few seconds too load and shut down, but this is a minor inconvenience.
-Organization, if you are looking for a specific song, you must either know the album, or know the order. Haven't tried other mp3 players before, but it is not that fluid. Feels like you are looking at your songs folder in your computer. (no search function)
-Video ( can only accept a really low quality format (.MTV), which you need a video converter for 99% of all of your video files, which is nearly impossible to find a good one. At the end, it will not be worth it converting.
-Pictures, really low quality, looks like something out of an old cellphone or gif.

Conclusion: If you are looking for a simple, cheap, straight forward mp3 player, I recommend getting this. If you want something extra, look for something else.

When I attached it to my computer, the corby software automatically installed which seamlessly converted / transfered movie files which I had downloaded from youtube (.flv), and I found the quality very acceptable, infact the same as that seen on youtube, scaled to the size of the screen of course. Infact I was very surprised that the video was so good after reading your review.

Wait a second -- I may not know what I'm talking about. Allow me to erase my previous comment.

"M. Arntzen's" review says, "Seventh, I have not tried the text mode, so I cannot comment on that now."

Text mode? I guess there is such a thing. I wonder what it can do...

Is the Coby 8GB MP620 equipped with a full/all shuffle function?

i gave them 5 stars because it works pretty good and it was very cheat, but i should have given them 4 or maybe 3 because the video section doesnt work. you can add videos b ut they wont play. I just thought it still was a pretty good deal for 24$ 1,000 songs, pictures, and radio.

I've never owned any mp3 players so I was wondering the same thing basically - how well can you organize your files? My nephew owns an ipod and he can organize everything according to music style, his moods (emo, workout music etc etc). So does anyone know?

I have a sandisk mp3 player and Im able to sort my music how ever I want. I can make as many different sections of music plus it keeps one master list where you can listen to all your music.

What comes in the package when I order this from Amazon? The mp3 and what else? Headphones? A USB cord? A Manual?
