I've only had it about a week but so far I've been impressed, with the exception of the picture viewing quality. I haven't tried the video, but the pictures look "pixely". Sound quality is great and there is plenty of storage for whatever you want. Radio works well too.

Pros: Able to organize everything in folders. It's small and compact.

Cons: It tends to blank out/skip for intervals of a couple of seconds to several minutes. The volumn lower itself automatically. When these 2 annyances occur(and they occur frequently), I would have to rewind to the spot that was skipped/blanked out.I would have to press the pause and/or readjust the volumn. Because of this, I will return this Coby Player.

    Comments about Coby MP620 MP3 Player (Black):

    Needed a new mp3 player for the gym, this one is perfect. It's very light and hardy, making it perfect for more active use. The battery has plenty more time than I'll ever need it. I would like a little more than 4 gig but that's hardly something I can complain about. The only real issues I have with the thing is the directional buttons are a little clumsy to use, but not terrible. It also takes a little while to boot up, but otherwise a great little product.

    Comments about Coby MP620 MP3 Player (Black):

    I had a really old & crumby MP3 player so anything new was going to be an improvement. But after using this one I realized the interface was much simpler and easier to use. Volume is good and controls are simple. If your looking for a simple & inexpensive MP3 player for working out or leisure this is a perfect buy. Only con is that it did not come with a usb charger/adapter.

      Comments about Coby MP620 MP3 Player (Black):

      It was the cheapest MP3 player in the store and I needed something until I get a high quality player. I like that it's small but the headphones fall out my ears and they shock me sometimes. I like to be able to browse files while I'm listening to music but this does not allow that and everytime I want a new song I have to start at 'A' and scroll through. It's a good choice for joggers or those who are not big music lovers but for those who have a lot of music and like to constantly change songs I would not recommend it.

        Comments about Coby MP620 MP3 Player (Black):

        It seems to be a fine player if you just want to put it on random or listen to a specific album/artist. It does not however allow you to load playlists. You can create one playlist on the player, but that's it.

        It also plays albums in alphabetical order instead of track order.

          • With my sony dream machin

          Comments about Coby MP620 MP3 Player (Black):

          I use this player to listen to music through my Sony Dream Machine alarm clock over night. I needed a cheap mp3 player for it and this fit the bill perfectly.

          It plays through the night no problem. Easy to transfere my music from my PC easy to program my play list and the battery life has been wonderful so far.

          I charge it during the day and run it 7 to 10 hours over night.

          For my needs it is perfect.

            I got this for my fiancee, she wanted something to listen to music on her break at work and while reading. Easy to use, sounds good. The included earbuds don't stay in, but it's inexpensive enough to go buy some better ones.

              I cant say much about the player itself as it was a gift for someone that i dont have much contact with. Although, they were pleased with it the last time i talked to them. I can say that shipping was fast despite it being around the holidays and the player came in perfect condition.

                    It's the only mp3 player I've ever used/owned so obviously I have nothing to compare it to however; it works, seems to hold battery life for several hours, easy to operate. I did replace the ear bud things with sligthly louder ones. *I'm only using this thing to learn Italian via mp3 format so..haven't heard any music with it, haven't dwnl any pics etc. It's fully functional, I downloaded the mp3's from a win7 pc with zero problems. I drive a truck and use it at work to learn Italian..why not right?

                        Comments about Coby MP620 MP3 Player (Black):

                        It works great! It's easy to navigate, holds multiple file types, and best of all it was affordable! If you're not into having an expensive name brand mP3 player, Coby is a good choice! I also like that it has FM radio. The battery life is great. I can listen to it all day and all night.
