The volume isn't loud enough some times, and the battery life could be better. I learned to take the battery out before I plug it into the USB port in my computer, because that drains the battery, and you don't need the battery when it's in the computer.
I never did figure out how to delete songs, other than by plugging it into the computer and using Explorer to delete them.
It took me a while to understand how to use the buttons. One thing I kept doing was skipping to the next track or the previous track when I wanted to back up or fast forward. I use mine to listen to talk radio and interviews, and sometimes I like to go back over something that I missed the first time.
I really like how it remembers where it was when I turn it off. When I turn it on again, it starts up right where it left off. That's great.
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.
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)
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.
I recommend this player:
You're looking for a basic MP3 player on a budget
You're new to MP3 players
You don't want the hassle of iTunes
You want to just copy off your CD collection (no podcasts or new music)
You want to use an auxillary input from your stereo or car
Somehow I developed the idea that the Coby and the Fuze were 'overworked' by moving too much data at once, so I only used 4gb to 6gb at a time with the Clip. After a while I also developed some sense of confidence and abandon and purchased another Coby as a 'backup,' moving small amounts of data at time. I liked the Clip so much that I gave it to a friend and ordered another for me. Then my 'backup' Coby went on the blink. Perhaps I tried to delete too much data at once. I dunno. But the stuff I left in the device only totaled about 1gb while the device properties showed there was no more room. The same week, my new Sansa Clip completely "froze up and died."
Now that the price of Sony Walkmans has dropped to a fairly reasonably range, I bought an 8gb "S" series and a 16gb "E" series. Both are working quite nicely, thank you. I especially like the equalizer options and the 'clear base' feature. Better than acceptable sound quality too. I've been working them hard and so far no problems (knock on wood). The only difference I can detect between the "S" and the "E" series is that the "S" series has an external speaker feature that I never use.
Scorecard: 2 out of 2 Coby 4gb devices bit the dust. 2 out of 3 Samsung products bit the dust. 2 out of 2 Sony Walkman products appear to be working well ... ... ...
