5 out of 5 eggsExactly what I was looking for!!

Pros: First off the D2 is smaller than I thought it would be. I thought the packaging was great. The sound and picture quality are exceptional. Bundled Software is useful, but I use other audio suites. I used the included software for video conversion for the D2. Touch screen is nice alternative to the other PMP’s out on the market. I really like being able to pop in a SD card. These were the TWO main reasons I went with the D2.

Cons: Phones that come with it aren’t that great, but they do what they are supposed to.

Other Thoughts: Takes a little to fully familiarize with the functions of the D2’s. A few quarks, but I mastered them in about a day or so. Make sure you visit the Cowon D2 online forums. Very helpful and TONS of advice. Of course three day delivery by New Egg was on time as usual! Kudos

5 out of 5 eggsTop notch Media Player

Pros: What else can i say that others have not? This Media Player is just excellent. From the built Quality to top notch sound and video.

Cons: Absolutely none.

Other Thoughts: 3 weeks before i bought this player, i bought the SENNHEISER PMX100 headphones, which is claimed to be one of the best low-end headphones out there, but i wasn't very impressed with them. That all changed when i paired with the COWON D2, It just sound awesome! The player's sound enhancements features such as BBE and Match3Bass really makes a difference.
I'm extremely happy with this player. After weeks of doing research on different players, it all came to this one. You wont be disappointed by this player.

5 out of 5 eggsJust wow

Pros: Very light and small. Excellent screen clarity. Works just fine with Vista. Works with 8gb SDHC card out of the box. Great audio quality. Auto FM scan, notepad, reads text files, insane battery life. Overall, outstanding.

Cons: Shuffling songs on the fly only by the touch screen could be a problem for some. There's a lack of accessories designed for it, but that's to be expected.

Other Thoughts: Currently deployed in Qatar, only took a week plus a day or two to get it delivered here. Newegg is just plain great.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks FIne

Pros: The device works fine and the JEtAudio software that comes with it is awesome. Guess what the COWON F1 I needed to replace due to the fact that I let sweat run down into the in inconveniently placed has COMEBACK TO LIFE after leaving it connected for a month

Cons: COWON does not utilizes all of the devices ability or their ability when developing the software

Other Thoughts: Buy one!!!!

5 out of 5 eggsBest mp3 player for the money

Pros: Well, I've had this for about 2 or 3 months now. I'm very please. The periodic firmware updates is something that all mp3 manufactures should be doing. The interface is very user friendly and the touch screen is a pretty cool touch. There aren't many buttons so navigating blindly will be difficult, but they added a feature in a firmware update that allows the volume buttons to act as fast fwd. rwnd. and pause/play. The sound quality is phenominal and it's a pretty durable peace of equipment.

Cons: Not many, but a screen protector would be a good idea. You also have to get your own case or your screen will scratch. I found a necklace/ring box was sufficient for mine.

Other Thoughts: Great mp3 player, has frequent updates, customer service is awesome (online chat :D) great for the price, highly recommended over the ipod.

5 out of 5 eggsFLAC Support

Pros: Firmware updates are being released soon for support of FLAC 1.1.4. Also these updates will allow for larger SDHC cards to be supported.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Def. an iPod killer! "PC Magazine" ran an article that ranked iAudio players 2nd to iPod based on user reviews. The iAudio won out in sound quality however. I beleive that the iAudio users are more intelligent and therefor able to give a more accurate rating than the iPod users (no offense guys! I just happen to see a lot of ppl getting iPods as part of their "image" rather than as mp3 players.)

4 out of 5 eggsIpod killer for technophiles

Pros: Stunning, responsive touchscreen. Compact package. Unreal battery life. Expandable up to +32gb (eventually, currently only +8gb) with SDHC. Loaded with features. As always, newegg rules: low price, promptly shipped.

Cons: Black plastic backing scratches easily. Buggy 2.41 beta firmware - doesn't recognize newest FLAC version (1.1.4). SD or SDHC shows up as a completely seperate directory... slightly annoying.

Other Thoughts: This is NOT a overly simplified white mp3 player for the masses. I would not recommend it for technophobes, as it is loaded with features which could be intimidating to the technologically incompetent. For we geeks, the endless features are great. Buy some PDA screen protectors and cut them to fit. The virtual scrolling feature in the latest firmware is a great addition. The bundled video conversion software is lousy. Use GOM Encoder, free until June... has a preset for the D2 and encodes at 4X or faster. Use Greasemonkey and "Youtube to me" add-ons for Firefox to capture flash videos (music videos!) from youtube and encode them with GOM Encoder.

4 out of 5 eggsCool Player - Latest Firmware Buggy

Pros: Solidly built, compact, responsive touchscreen, excellent battery life, SD card slot, does not require proprietary software to load files.

Cons: The user documentation is very limited. The video conversion software does not easily recognized DVDs. I found that iriverter SW configured for the IRiver Clix works well and it's free. I upgraded the firmware to ver. 2.41 beta for SDHC compatibility. This version of the firmware is full of bugs.

Other Thoughts: Beware if you are ordering this to use with a high capacity SDHC card. I'm currently using an 8 MB card, but due to the lack of good user documentation and all the bugs in the software, a novice user will get very frustrated.
