Cowon D2 2 GB
Advantages: Everything worked like it should
Disadvantages: Too hard to get videos on
I got given the Cowon D2 as a christmas present. At first I wasn't too impressed, I thought it was complicated to use, weren't that many features, and a bit bulky. How wrong I was! The music player was decent, it did take a while to get used to, but I eventually did get there. The sound quality was good, and it could go really loud. Another thing I loved about this was the fact it had an ordinary SD card slot, so the memory was expandable by anything up to 32GB, and the cards are really cheap. On an iPod it costs a good £60 to add 24GB of memory from 8GB to 32GB. The video player on it was good, and the quality of the videos on there were good. However, the only video that was ever on there was the demo video, I never managed to get other videos on there because I could never get it onto the right format or something, which was extremely annoying. Photos are also present, however I never really put any photos on so I cannot comment on the quality of the photos. A text reader is also there, however I never really used this. I managed to download firmware with a dictionary on it, which the default player didn't have, and this was pretty decent. The FM radio was pretty decent, however I didn't use it too much, but it's nice to have it there. A dictaphone function is also there, which I used a couple of times, and is pretty decent. The sounds it picked up when played back were clear and loud. There were also apps that you could download on the internet, such as games, a paint app and even tube maps and things like that. The D2 has a huge 52 hour battery life, and a touch screen, which you cannot really get fingerprints on. It also comes with a handy stylus, which also doubles up as a stand. That's about it, this player really was like the iPod touch of today when it first came out, but today, it doesnt really stand up to iPod touches.
Summary: This really was the equivalent of an iPod touch when it first came out, get an iPod now
