Pros Good sound quality etc.
Cons Service - noneexistent to terrible
Summary If anything goes wrong, they have no phone number. Only weird support on website. I then had to send my player to California (from NY), it is still in transit back for the last week. You can't talk to anyone, they are sending it by snail (10 days delivary time California - NY when US post did the other way around in two days). They have the best sound quality but if anything goes wrong you are screwed. I am seriously sorry I purchased their product.
Pros The cowon s9 has loads of special features like flash utilities and good sound quality ,it"s major features are it"s design, build quality and bluetooth for wireless transfer of files.
Cons Ther are no major drawbacks of this mp3 player.
Summary just take a lok at it"s specifications and featurea and take alook at it"s official website you"ll understand evrything about it.(www.jetaudio.com)
Pros 1.Incredible battery life
2. Amoled Screen
3. Awesome Sound quality
4. Awesome Video Playback (just drag and drop..dont require conversion for avi's etc) and top notch quality
6. Radio and Voice record
Cons 1. Lightweight (feels cheap at first)
2. Default UI is slow (u have to change it)
Summary The S9 has the best audio and video playback with awesome presets, custom equalizer and BBE+. Fully customized UI (default GUI is ugly). the player is sexy looking but do feels cheap at first..radio and voice record really comes in handy at times.Forget to mention the scratch resistant screen..u can watch the youtube video on how durable the screen is.
last but not least..AMOLED SCREEN is BEAUTIFUL. alot of settings. Cowon s9 is well supported with regular firmware updates and really good dedicated forums.
Some of the drawbacks is that player feels really light (well not really a con) at first until u get accustom to it. 3.5mm jack is located at the bottom while the skip buttons on top which is kinda goofy when placed in pocket. flash player could be better.
After changing up the UI, s9 comes to life. Really good browser (Klaus browser) and music UCI (dark evolution).
I do not regret spending on this mp4 player. If you are into wifi and apps, get the itouch, well recommended. BUT if you are into top notch sound quality and video quality and awesome battery life (LIKE ME). I strongly recommend this player. I have my laptop and blackberry for apps and wifi. This is an AWESOME MP4 PLAYER.
