Well, sort of. My principal need was a machine that would play music WELL and hold a lot of it. I got what I paid for: the Coby 610 has copious memory (more than enough for my needs) and seems to be able to play my music just fine. So my complaints here are technically superficial. But I think they are worth considering.
First, if you get a Coby 610, you will be amazed at how light and chintzy the plastic case seems. My Nano had a sturdy, flashy, beautiful metal case-- this one FEELS ready to crack in my hands (note: actual cracks have yet to appear). Second, you will notice that the font used on the display screen is a blocky system font-- easy enough to read, I guess, but far from sleek or stylish. Next, you will discover that the "fly wheel" on the lower half of the front panel does not "fly" at all: the Nano had a wheel that actually "swirled" allowing me to scroll and navigate through the Nano's various menus: here, it is just a directional up/ down/ left/ right button placed on a silver wheel.
Okay, more good things: I was blown away by the fact that, for about $30, I could watch a full-length movie on the [tiny] display screen. I mean, it's really, really small, and the practicality of watching ANY movie on a screen so small must be considered questionable, but there it was, right there: a movie on the LCD display. My Nano could never do that.
Am I happy with my purchase? I guess so.Read more ›
This small, inexpensive device that features an equalizable Mp3 player, with a capacity of up to about 4 GIGS of songs/music, depending on what else you might throw onto it file-wise, along with a good FM radio receiver (with the ability to set pre-sets), was something I thoroughly did my research on, before parting with my bread. And I cannot say I was/am disappointed too much, except for the cheap earbud headphones included, but this is easily solved by using a better set of headphones. In fact, in some ways, it has and does exceed what I expected for the money. Besides a good Mp3 & FM radio player/receiver, other things I looked at before buying such a unit was whether it had some sort of rechargeable energy source (besides non-rechargeable batteries), as well as something which could perhaps exhibit photos, videos, text, and so forth. Ease of setup and use were also primary. According to expectations, this was and is, a nice purchase. Again however, I have been using it with a set of better headphones than what is included here.
While I can't say this product is totally five star, it does almost everything, almost perfectly, for which I bought it, and so I have to give it at least five stars, though it's closer to a four and a half rating than five. The GIG limits level may be well below requirements of some, or they may be looking for something a bit more substantial with a larger view screen, but I think for most casual users, and for the price, this is a pretty fantastic buy.Read more ›
The sound quality is excellent. The charge lasts a long time. I was concerned when I read a few reviews that stated that you couldn't listen to it while it was charging. I found that I can use the player when I am charging it with my Motorola phone charger. I have not tried listening while it is charging from the computer. The menus are easy to find and navigate. My only complaint is that it does not have a shuffle feature. I have discoverd, however, that loading it full with MP3s from different groups and just selecting "Play All" what you get is almost as good as having a shuffle, as it sorts the files by title. It also rememmbers the mode and last song you played when you stopped using it. This is great so I don't have to always start from the beginning of my playlist every time I turn it on. I can resume where I left off the previous day.
I have not used the video playing feature. I did not buy it for this use so I cannot give any review on how well that part of the player works. I just wanted it for listening to MP3s. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good player who is on a tight budget. I find I-pods ridiculous and a waste of money and I refuse to buy one. One doesn't need to when there are good products like this one available on the market - unless you are one of those materialistic types who equates having lots of expensive stuff with being a good person.

This is great mp3 player
And it has a good price and performs just as good as more pricey ones.
This is a Coby brand 4GB mp3 player. I did not care for this at all. 4GB is not enough at all to hold any decent amount of music. The MP3 player itself only lasted a few months. Read morePublished 12 months ago by MeLin
