5 out of 5 eggsGreat little player

Pros: This player has been going strong for me after years of constant use. It has excellent battery life and simple controls.

Cons: The headphones that came with it were not very comfortable, but just plug in your favorite pair of headphones and you are good to go.

4 out of 5 eggsGood MP3 player / Bad Software

Pros: Mp3 is sleek looking, half-decent brand, good storage.

Clunky software mentioned in cons section is very easily bypassed (Just drag and drop albums directly to the mp3 player's directory, like a you would a thumbdrive.)

Cons: Software application that comes with (the install is on the player itself) is ridiculously counter-intutive and, moreover, clunky. Clunky is the only word I can conceive for it. You can either send it sweeping for audio files on your system where it grabs things like audio files for games and creates duplicates of files it's already swept OR add files, painstakingly, one at a time. There's no clicking a folder and having it add the entire contents, because the "find" feature can only target media files, not folders. Was going to rate a 2 before I realized I was being a moron, and should just try dropping the files directly onto it. The program will recognize files added in this fashion as synced, making for no problems.

Other Thoughts: Clunky software is not the vendors fault, and this review should not reflect on them negatively.

No soulsucking use agreements, fairly user-friendly once you know how to slam it against the counter properly, all-in-all, slam dunk for the money.

1 out of 5 eggs100% Junk, not worth anything

Pros: It worked for awhile
Simple controls

Cons: Wow, newegg should NOT be selling this sort of merchandise. I knew right when I got the package open that I'd made a mistake buying this player. It was well below even my lowest expectations.

If you do buy one, be ready for a few things:
1) Disappointment
2) Terrible build quality. Really.
3) Blah sound, with No Volume Control at all.
4) Returning the unit for another c r a p p y replacement, cuz your money is gone.
5) Writing a c r a p p y review.

After working in very average capacity for all of about 2 hrs total, this unit just died. Should have known, it weighs almost nothing, it's like an empty shell of cheap plastic. The display looks like it was designed in 1974. The controls, while simple & straightforward, are old fashioned & archaic.

Coby, never again will you rook me on anything. If someone wanted to give me this unit out on the street for nothing, I would say No Way.

Other Thoughts: Don't even think of buying this.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Small, easy to use device. Has a good amount of storage, and rechargeable battery.

Cons: FM radio is more of a feature than a functioning option.

Other Thoughts: You can ask more for the price of this thing, its easily the best little mp3 player I've ever had. I sweet allot when working out, and this thing has yet to die on me. The only thing that drives me nuts about this thing is that if you can use the radio and move around to much.

1 out of 5 eggsCoby = Junk

Pros: Great Price, and Fast shipping with Newegg

Cons: Screen was dead out of the box.
Not worth shipping back for new junk.

Other Thoughts: It has been 20 years since I have last purchased a Coby product. Do not laugh, but the last product I purchased was a portable cassette player. That product would play the tapes too fast, and when the batteries started to wear down it would play the tape too slow. 20 years later I thought I would give them another shot considering the cost, and wow! Same junk they were all those years ago.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good sale price, small enough to fit into small jean pocket, seemingly sturdy as I've dropped it twice without it breaking/bugging.

Cons: Slow to respond, small low resolution screen, bad seals, unable to edit or add playlists for some reason.

Other Thoughts: Although I didn't expect much I was still happy with what I payed for. Bought on sale to replace my busted, dead zen. Kind of a big step down but is getting me through the work days. Probably the biggest thing I dislike about this is that dust has managed to get between the screen and the case so I always see it but cant clean it without breaking it apart.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat player for the price

Pros: Compact
Adequate sound quality

Cons: Buttons are not as responsive as I would've liked
Menu is not intuitive
Audio port is at the bottom of the player

Other Thoughts: I use it to workout and it's perfect for its job. Would not use it as my only mp3 player. Have not tried video, but with such a small screen, it's not worth it IMO.
