Good and Cheap

 

I bought this MP3 player because I'm in college and am on a budget, so at the time I don't have the money to spend on a Zune HD like I really want, and I refuse to buy any Apple product. This was a cheap alternative that I purchased with some spare...

Cheap ; Light ; Small ; Easy to transfer music to ; Holds a lot of songs for the price

Doesn't have internal battery (must replace with AAA's) ; Screen is a bit small ; Packaged earbuds aren't great

Its a winner

 

I loaded this one up with two levels of directories and 1425 WMAs. I just used the normal explorer software to transfer the files from my notebook. Sound is very good for an inexpensive player. I had no trouble using the buttons once I found out that...

Nice Little Player

 

Very compact and easy to use just like a pen drive. The player got into a mode where it would play about 15 seconds of each song (ie. play briefly and then go to the next song). This bad behavior was cured by extracting the battery and reinserting it...

Works for me

 

It uses a AAA battery so I don't have to throw away player when the battery dies. Plays well and easily transfers music files using Window Media player. Doesn't have a lock on it, but I've never had a problem with that. It still works after a year

Isn't compatible with downloading audiobooks using online libraries. This is my only complaint. If you load audiobooks on your mp3 player using your local library online downloads, forget it

COBY Black 4GB Micro MP3 Player With LCD MP301

 

it works

this thing is total garbage, bad sound quality and i dropped it TWICE when running and it just died on me and never worked again. Also cheap material, feels like it's going to break on you in an instant. Not good, not even for a simple workout mp3 player

Good product, great service

 

I previously purchased Coby\'s 2GB mp3 player. I wanted a simple no bells and whistles\' mp3 player that uses regular batteries. The device was an easy plug & play and decided to get Coby\'s 4GB mp3 player. With the mp3 player, I can listen to music,...

Great Compact MP3 Player

 

Bought this as a replacement for an identical one that didn\'t survive a cycle through the washing machine :-(. Used mostly when I go running and just want a simple player that will fit in the key pocket of my shorts. Surprisingly good sound for such a

Overpriced memory stick
