Its easy to download music but...
It is ridiculously hard to download video, the screen is unresponsive, and tit wasn't very durable. Very cheap plastic, like a cheap knockoff child's toy. Now I have a Pyrus MP3/MP4/MP5 Player I got for 40$ and i LOVE IT. Search for "Pyrus Electronics 4gb Mp3/mp4/mp5 Player with 2.8 Inch Touch Screen and All Stainless Steel Casing - Black" instead, MUCH better buy.
Has a major design flaw
Used it about 6 times and was fairly satisfied. Sound quality for this type player good, easy to load (can not seem to change songs once placed though, not good) fairly comfortable to wear when swimming. The plug to access the plug in port, popped out on it's own. I had put it in correctly. Water got in and I hope after it dries out it will come back to life, but for now it's dead.
Very cheaply made. Touch-screen is mostly unresponsive and the product I received was defective (I assume). The battery held maybe 10-15 minutes of power when fully charged. The software CD that came with the player was not "Windows-verified" and caused several errors when used. I order ALOT of items on Amazon.com, and I was compelled to write this review as a warning. For forty+ dollars, you would be better off with something more reliable.
Everything is within expectation
I bought this for my Mom because it is small, easy to carry and simple to use. The voice is good enough. It is nice that it has an analog volume control. The battery runs out quickly but charging is fast too, so it is OK for my Mom who only listens to it half an hour a day. It has internal memory which is more than enough for music, but I wish it would take micro SD card too.
Never buy this product or you will regret it
The earbud headphones did not work and neither did the usb charger that came in the box. The user interface on the player is absolutely unintuitive and a nightmare. I could go on and on but I don't see the point. In my opinion, every other mp3 player in the same range would probably trump this one. So learn from my mistake and avoid this product altogether.
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.
Screen is absolutely fantastic
As a video player and web surfing tablet, the Archos 5 is the cream of the crop. The screen is absolutely fantastic, and large enough to really enjoy a movie and read web pages without constant zooming. Yet the player is small (albeit heavy) and slim. There's plenty of storage, ranging from 60- 250 gigs to hold a large video and music library.
The Theater+'s on-screen interface is attractive; however, the text and some of the icons are a bit small.
Seagate's media player performs admirably, but its lack of HDMI makes it less than ideal for serious home-theater buffs. Seagate's media player performs admirably, but its lack of HDMI makes it less than ideal for serious home-theater buffs.
Disappointing audio DAC
When Western Digital introduced its smart WD TV HD Media Player earlier this year, which is designed to mate portable hard drives with big-screen TVs, we knew it was only a matter of time before rival disk manufacturer Seagate would come up with something similar. Second-to-market products are often better than the ones that create a new niche, so expectations were suitably high around the office.
As one of the most comprehensive media players launched in India yet, the Seagate FreeAgent Theater+ is a satisfying product for its niche. The array of connectivity options and multimedia file-format support hold it in good stead.

The fourth-generation iPod Nano is more attractive and colorful than its predecessor and includes Apple's new Genius playlist tool, a tilt sensor, and accessibility features for the visually impaired..
The bottom line: The fourth-generation iPod Nano is easy on the eyes and the wallet, and you can't beat its hardware and user interface design. Just be sure to give iTunes 8 a spin before committing.
