A bit expensive, Feature-poor in some respects, Low-res screen
Most formats didn't play too well
Touchpad interface didn't work efficiently
Sound could be better, quite bulky
'Summary: The design flaw in its A/V out connection cable made the Zen X-Fi2 a terrible disappointment after the great success I had with the old Vision M as a teaching tool.'
'And the player's interface, despite its clear and colourful design, felt sluggish and did not properly respond to touch input. '
'troublesome touch interface'
'the screen was bright and the contrast just about right.'
'excellent video format support'
'We became very skeptical of Archos's claim after we noted that a fully charged battery became 30 percent depleted after watching video for about an hour.'
'It was necessary to press the buttons slowly and forthrightly, and I found myself needing to repeat touches far too often.'
'The latest firmware (1.3.05) was very stable and worked in conjunction with the ARM Cortex processor to produce a lag-free experience when moving about the system.'
'Cons Interface is far from perfect.'
'The interface isn’t all that difficult to master, but it looks and feels a little too hokey for our taste.'
'It makes it easy to make changes on the fly without have to dive into the menus.'
'most natural, full-bodied sound possible'
'Weak internal speaker . '
'Support for open source audio formats (OGG and FLAC) . '
'For casual movie-watching on the train or bus it will be acceptable.'
'The Cowon A3 isn't the slimmest or lightest portable video player we've seen'
'The A3 is big'
'short battery life'
'Bulky body that's just a tad heavy.'
'The lighter Zen Vision by virtue of its shorter length can be comfortably held and controlled using the right hand.'
'Poor supplied software.'
'Unfortunately, there's no kickstand, so you have to hold the device while you're watching video.'
