Coby MP-837

January 28, 2011

I recieved the Coby MP-837 as a Christmas gift, and as soon as I turned it on I hated it! The touchscreen was jerky and as I have large fingers, whenever I would touch the screen, it would select something else. I was fed up and ready to send it back before an hour passed. BUT, the longer I used it, the easier it became. It calibrates its screen to the user and employs resistive touch technology. Once it calibrated to my fingers, it was completely enjoyable. The screen smoothed out and it works perfectly. I do have some complaints about the Photo feature, as it takes FOREVER to load pictures. I found it to be easier to just select the photo I want in the Explorer file. I have had good quality from COBY electronics in the past, and I would recommend this MP3/MP-4 player to anyone who doesn't require all the features of the Fruit brand, but still wants a stylish, functional, and dependable media player.
