Cowon O2 Personal Media Player

 

Can Cowon's new O2 player give Apple and Archos a run for their money?

Audio file support is just as good, with out of the box playback for FLAC, OGG Vorbis, ASF, Apple Lossless and several others on top of the usual MP3, WMV and AAC formats. The only time we saw the O2 struggle was with one H.264 file and with...

Cowon O2 review

 

Cowon's O2 is going after the Archos 5 in a big way. Can it win this toughest of PMP wars?

A worthy attempt at dethroning Archos, but an infuriating interface sees it fall behind the leading pack

Cowon O2 review

 

With its gorgeous touchscreen and crystal-clear sound, the flash-based Cowon O2 is sure to please customers looking for a fairly inexpensive PVP. But several gripes we've had with previous models - such as lack of ID3 tagging and no support for...

Cowon O2 review

 

Mobile operator O2 offers broadband at three different speeds: 8Mbit/s, 16Mbit/s and 20Mbit/s. However we had only enough respondents in our survey to judge the first two.

Cowon O2 16GB review

 

Though the O2 has broad format support and a decent battery life, the screen has a low resolution and the controls are fiddly. It simply isn't good value when compared to Archos's 405. If you're looking for a 4.3in display, we recommend Archos's 605...

Cowon iAudio O2 personal media player

 

A touchscreen flash-storage version of the excellent A3 is a great idea, but it's let down a little by the screen resolution and lack of support for ID3 audio tags.

The O2 is very much a game of two halves. Format and codec support is superb and it'll play pretty much any resolution video file you throw at it. The sound quality is excellent if a little on the quiet side, it is Biblically straightforward to use,...

Cowon - O2

 

Much like Archos with its successful Media Player series, Cowon is one of a handful of companies that has remained quite active in the Portable Media Player market, regularly updating its devices with new designs and ...

Overall the O2 is a tidy package that offers excellent audio with an impressive degree of format support and control. Despite the rather basic design of the chassis it should provide some healthy competition for the other PMPs currently doing the rounds.
