For what it's worth
For what its worth, I like the unit, the battery last long enough for me to make my 18 hours in flights. This unit has but one down fall, You can not create a play list with it. You have to create the play list on your computer and then load it in. I find this very inconvenient. I like to play music I am in the mood for, not plan on what mood I will be in. If this unit had that I would have rated it higher.
Decent bundled earphones
Not quite cheap, but definitely cheerful, the NWZ-E463 combines a natty design with a good-looking interface and a wealth of music-related features. There are some significant bits missing, such as lossless format support, expandable memory and a standard USB connection, but this won't bother everyone. The key to this player is that, thanks to its thumb-friendly physical controls, pleasant interface and decent earphones, it's a device that's enjoyable to use.
Battery life, Easy to navigate menu system, Sound Quality
For a fairly low budget price tag, the NWZ-E463 model offers a snazzy design with a great range of music-related features. There are some minor niggles such as too small sized buttons and menu issues, but overall, a pleasing interface along with a solid pair of sound isolating earphones. All of these features make this music player an attractive little device all round.
This mp3 player has an input jack, which is rare, and very handy. Plays well, has external speaker, which is also hard to find. Music saved to internal memory plays back nicely. The only drawback so far is that it is very slow if you try to play from a micro SD card. I have tried several class 10 micro sd cards with the same extremely slow result. I've decided not to bother with the micro sd card and just put my most important music on the internal memory.
Poor build quality
The MP870 is priced at Rs. 4,150 (MRP) for the 4GB version and Rs. 4,850 (MRP) for the 8GB version. For that money, the only decent feature it provides is music playback. There are a few other options with similar features that might appeal to potential buyers like the Philips GoGear Spark priced at Rs. 2,697, and the Creative M300 priced at Rs. 3,499 with Bluetooth as an added feature. A mobile phone could be another alternative for those who want added functionality along with music.
Huge Storage Capacity
Cowon has carved out a niche within a niche with the X7. It offers better sound quality and superior video capabilities than an iPod Classic, but it's also much bigger. The sheer size of the player is a tricky issue to scale, but if you can it offers surprisingly good value - with far greater storage than its series rivals, like the J3, at a similar price.
Touchscreen is very sensitive and responsive, makes getting around the UI easier.
The Cowon X7 is an upper mid-cost portable media player. This player has a 4.3" LCD display with 480x272 resolution, as well as a TV output. The Smart Widget user interface of this player allows you to view all your favorite widgets and info on the same page.
The X7 is a bit of a disaster
The Cowon X7 is priced at Rs. 17,500. Now let's be clear, the X7 is a bit of a disaster and we wished Cowon didn't cripple it so much. What is good about the X7 is the massive storage space, the great audio quality, customization options and the incredible battery life. But once you look past that it is all one royal mess. Its titanic dimensions make it hard to carry around. The display sucks, period. The interface sucks even more and the image gallery is a disaster.
The sound it produces is good, the screen is a pleasure to watch and the battery life is superb.
Though it only supports standard definition video and doesn't really advance the PMP breed at £230 the 120GB version the X7 is still reasonable value. The sound it produces is good, the screen is a pleasure to watch and the battery life is superb. If you have a massive media library, want a big screen and hate iTunes it's a solid enough choice.
Cowon X7 - A Costly Mistake
The Cowon X7 is a huge disappointment. Its massive storage capacity and amazing battery life coupled with FLAC support and stellar audio quality makes it a great device for audiophiles, but its negatives far outweigh the positives. A poor UI, a Resistive Touchscreen that's sluggish with its responses and lack of H264 support really hold the X7 back. If you factor in the lack of Wi-Fi or any kind of web support, the price tag of Rs. 18,000 becomes a slap on the face.
160 GB storage space
X7's design is lovely as usual but two disappointing facts about the X7 are the low resolution and the included non-standard data cable. We sure need to applaud the battery life offered and the 160 GB storage space. Finally the X7 is not more than a media player in any way as there is no WiFi support which means that you cannot web browse or have access to any of the apps. If this is a major concern for you then Zune HD or the Apple iPod touch is definitely the one for you.
Large storage capacity
The COWON products are rated highest in almost all the technical aspects of audio, video and multimedia. Let us look in detail one such amazing product from COWON, the X7. For you to make a wise decision on the product here we brief out few aspects of its predecessor, the V5 HD. X7 retains most of the features of V5 HD, say, world-beating audio quality, insane battery life and more. However, the V5 lacked Web browser, Wi-Fi and support for apps.
