Excellent basic MP3 player for rec. use
bought this mp3 player for listening to music during exercise. It's absolutely wonderful, and easy to figure out. I have no problem using the Music Go software with it, as I don't care about Media Player or any of that. I import my own CDs and send them to the mp3 player, and create playlists. The earbuds, I dismissed without trying, and used my own headset for a couple of days. But, the earbuds were nice for listening to music in bed, and I realized they are better than my headphones!
I have been looking for a good iPod replacement. The iPod is a great music playing device for sure, however, I did not like the way to use iTunes to put and to manage my MP3 files on iPods. I just wanted a MP3 player that can be connected as an external drive and did not need to worry about loosing all my music libraries by synching a MP3 player to a wrong computer accidentally. Then I had a change to have the Creative ZEN X-Fi 3.
Ropey interface and navigation
The Creative Zen X-Fi 3 MP3 player sounds good, goes very loud and comes with an unusually good set of earphones. However, problems with the design and interface hold it back. The touch-sensitive buttons are annoying, screen quality is unimpressive and it's surprisingly thick for a device of its size.
Affordable, versatile and compact MP3 player
All things considered this is a good deal for a low end MP3 player. For the price it's difficult to go wrong with this device. Is it perfect? No. Could there be improvements? Absolutely. As I mentioned earlier, my biggest disappointment was the lack of the audio recorder. I'm guessing this probably won't be an issue for most people however. Other than that I'm very satisfied with the Philips GoGear Vibe. Satisfied enough to consider purchasing the 16GB GoGear Muse.
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.
A lovely sounding, capable player
The Cowon iAudio 9 is not a media player for everyone. While its user interface is intuitive for the most part, the sheer number of options means you'll be navigating a lot and at some point you may will end up lost in a sea of sub menus. Comprehensive audio format support makes up for this to a degree, but the lacklustre output when left un-tweaked might irk the casual listener. Once configured though, it's a lovely sounding, capable player.
Native Xvid support
I still find the UI a bit awkward and it will take most first time Cowon users a bit to get used to, but the UI is taking some baby steps on improvements. I guess one of my major complains though is the proprietary connection and odd video cable that accompanies it. I would really like to see the micro-USB phone manufactures have agreed upon as a standard and video out built into the 3.5mm audio jack.
Well designed .
The Cowon iAudio9 is available in three capacities â?? 4GB, 8GB and 16GB which come with price tags of Rs. 6750, Rs. 7750 and Rs. 10,000 respectively. Incidentally the 16GB model comes with a
free leather case that's worth about Rs. 1000. Thereâ?? s nothing wrong I could find with the player from the price to the features. It supports commonly used video and audio codecs for copy paste playback and the unique UI will take no more than a couple of tries to get the hang of.
