Top Customer Reviews
1. The media manager software that "synchronizes" with you PC and converts media files is located INSIDE the player. When you first attach it via USB to your PC, if you selct "Open with Coby XXXXX" , the software will be installed on your PC. Personally, I have no use for it yet, but may in the future. I hope this clears things up for people who can't find the software for converting files to the correct format.
2. It works just great using your Windows Explorer directly without the media manager software. Simply create folders named any way you choose, in a logical manner so that you can locate your music easily. In operation, choose the "browse" option, and direct the player to the folder containing the music you want to hear. If you shut the player down in this mode, play will resume where you left off if you select the "browse" option after boot, and then accept the defaults.
3. Personally, I will use this player for mp3 audio files only since the display is so small. The screen is big enough to give very easily read menu items and control options.
4. It takes only a few seconds to turn on or off, and a few more to set itself up after changing the on-board files, but takes nowhere near as long as many complain about, as long as you use the "browse" mode, which is the most useful mode anyway.
5. All mp3 players come with poor ear-buds, so just fork over another $5.50 for a really good set of Coby ear-buds, which work great.
6. The design of this player is excellent. It is very thin and light in weight, with very well thought out controls and menu structures and a very easy to read display.
7. The audio socket is very tight with most of my earbuds/earphones, so I will be careful when plugging and unplugging.
8. Durability is not so important when you buy a player that cost so little, and it's too early to know, but my feeling is this is a really good unit. My last one, a $75 RockMee, lasted only a year before it's charging system failed.
My only negative criticism is that it's shape is different from my other players, so I will need to get a new carrying case to fit it. I would have gladly paid a little more if it came with a good carrying case! Buy this mp3 player!
First, I did not buy it from Amazon. I trust Amazon, especially with books, but I often find electronics cheaper elsewhere. Since this is Amazon I won't name where I got it ($20 on sale in a store).
First, the sound quality is good. It's better than my 1gb iPod Nano, second generation, in that respect. The headphones that come with it are adequate.
Second, it's easy to install media. First, you'll need to install the software that comes on it, there are no CDs; all you need to do is plug it in with the USB connector that comes with it. Then let the software scan your computer for media, or add specific files and drives. You can then sync the files to your player. All of the files that show up for Itunes does show up for the Coby software. It's not necessarily fast in adding it completely but you can add things simultaneously in each content area; they are separated in the categories, but you can view them other ways as well.
Third, the radio can be slow or choppy, but it will work. If you hit the middle button twice, you can switch it from Manual mode to your presets. It's easy to switch between modes and add to your presets. The presets will jump in the order that you made them, not according to frequency on the scale.
Fourth, the video is, obviously, small but I like it. I don't plan to watch movies on it, just shorter content such as news podcasts. The software will convert the video file from the kind it is in. Watch out, the file converted might end up bigger what the software shows.
Fifth, if you pause the player, or go to another feature and it auto pauses, you can hit Now Playing when back in the area and resume playing whatever you were listening to or watching.
Sixth, the photos are small, and you should really only use it as a place to back them up, if that.
Seventh, I have not tried the text mode, so I cannot comment on that now.
Eight, it charges with the usb, and mine came fully charged out of the box.
Lastly, it has no clip. So if you're running or working out with it, you'll need to have it in your pocket or get an accessory that is compatible.
Overall, if it doesn't get buggy or freeze, it's worth the money. Even if it only lasts a year (dividing the $22 I paid, that's tax added, by 365, would mean I paid 6 cents a day for its use), that'd be worth the price paid.
If you have something that lasts over an hour (I specifically have a NPR All Concerts Considered podcast playing that is that long), for the showing time played and time left featured, you cannot tell your exact time. This is because it shows minutes and seconds but not hours, 59:59, instead of 1:00:00, would be what gets seen. But there is a bar and you can see where you are at in relation to the beginning and end.
You can listen to specific artists or albums, but it's not necessarily intuitive. The first track for A Love Supreme, by John Coltrane, is fourth in the list, and it goes backwards. But, again, it's cheap and worth the price.
Cons: There are no clips or anywhere to put a strap or something to hold onto it. Hope you have pockets.
