Comments about Cowon America Cowon D2 4 GB MP3 & Video Player with 2.5" LCD, JPEG, WAV, MPEG, TXT, FM & Line-in Recording, Black:
Purchased M3 in 2004 because of reviews and did not want to be tied to iTunes. The play back on that player had me, I was amazed that audiophile like sound could be produced from something so small. Then the built in extras that were options with iPod, mic, radio, in-line recording, and playback formats- MP3, WMA, ASF, OGG, and WAV.
I have been buying Cowen products since with the same results more bang for your money and that unmatched sound quality. I only had one Cowon product not live up to expectations, iAudio 6, due to mini HD not good. i6 replaced by i7 using flash now very good.
D2 easy to use software easy to convert video to format to play in player. Just place in DVD and let software do the rest. Now the Q5W is different just up load movie of many different formats and go. This is a fine machine.
BTW, all of the players had been purchased for teen girls and they have used and seen many others. They like the iPod touch GUI better, however, they will not take a iPod over Cowon. Purchased a creative zen micro to replace the i6, mini HD kept locking up, and then ended up replacing that with the D2 all within a year. The creative did not give the sound quality and it had to be returned for repairs several times.
I have purchased the following Cowon players M3, U2, i6, D2, i7, and Q5W to replace, still in use, M3. Q5W user getting a D2 to carry around when the Q5W is just a bit much to carry.
Would have given 5 stars if it had WiFi, Blutooth or both.
