This review is from: COWON Q5W 5" Dark Navy 60GB MP3 / MP4 Player
Pros: Great for on the go Photographers, able to connect compact flash on it and offloading memory unto it.
Great picture quality, sound is amazing no matter what you use to listen to it, great way to watch videos and slideshows with your music, great picture quality when plugged on to HDTV.
INTERNET CAPABILITIES ARE AMAZING, BEING ABLE TO WATCH FULL INTERNET IS A BLAST, I WATCH YOUTUBE AND IT SHOWS THE VIDEOS IN GOOD QUALITY.
Cons: Buttons are still a bit small, even when setup to use with fingers, stylus works well, but a hazzle (at least for me).
does not read TIFF files, H.264 and AAC files(these are files I use the most).
Heats up a bit when watching videos and or charging.
I had to return my fist one because of MAJOR OVERHEATING problems( The replacement works well, but still a little bit hot at times, but not as bad, this one is more on the allowable side. Does not come with a case or pouch for it.
You are able to control videos and music once connected to the tv with the Cowon Remote Control, but you cannot control anything else, for instance if you want to watch you picture slideshow while listening to music, you can't control it with the remote, in other words it only has the capabilities to control music and videos......SAD.
Slow start up, and even slower when looking at the thumbnail picture style.
Other Thoughts: Quite honestly if they can fix the size of the buttons on the screen to be a bit bigger as well as to ADD more file formats, and the Remote control, this Would be the Ultimate PMP!!!!!
Dispite some of these issues, I have been very well pleased with it. I use it everyday, I take pictures all of the time and not having to carry my laptop with me is just great, transfer of files into it, is reasonably fast.
I would definitely recommend it to everyone.
If you want to use the Bluetooth, I definitely recommend to buy Motorola S805 Headphones, they work great, being able to listen to music and receive phone calls without the need to take them off is great. Great sound quality, specially when you play around with the great Cowon's Sound Effects!!!!!
Just make sure that if yours heats up, get it replaced.
