Cowon A3 (60GB) review

 

First impressions of this multimedia player are underwhelming. The A3 seems a dated, plastic, lumpen figure, and it struggles, too, to sell itself as

Good-sized screen ; excellent file compatibility, including HD content ; SD card and FM tuner

Low battery life ; looks and feels cheap ; sound and vision performance is bettered elsewhere

As one of the most expensive units we've tested it needed to be special; despite solid specs, it’s decidedly average

Cowon A3 review

 

The Cowon A3 is also an overall improvement over its predecessor, the Cowon A2. Unfortunately, the A3's bulky size and unintuitive controls are frustrating.

If you're looking for a single portable device to carry both your audio and video files, the Cowon A3 probably isn't your best choice. But as a portable video player, the A3 has just about everything you could want - if you can tolerate the tiny...

Cowon iAudio A3

 

Cowon's iAudio A3 is a portable media player with a 4 inch display and a 30GB hard disk built in. These relatively generous specs make it well suited to watching films on the move

High price is justified by the excellent screen. No, not Audi A3. That's a car, silly.

Cowon A3 (30GB) Portable Video Player

 

If you can get past its bulky design and unintuitive controls, the Cowon A3 shines as a portable video player.

Supports many audio and video formats ; Big, 4-inch wide-aspect screen

Bulky design and unintuitive controls ; Limited online music support

Cowon A3

 

This portable media player does it all—and beats Archos at its own game.

Records audio, video, voice, and radio content. Sharp photo and video display. Strong file support. Excellent EQ.

Poorly designed joystick controller. Big and bulky. Mobile TV options are not available in the U.S.
