The Coby MP727 is a mid-cost MP3 player, available in a 4GB, 8GB or 16GB capacity. The MP727's 3.5mm headphone jack allows you to play your audio out loud from a stereo system. Besides MP3/WMA files, the 2.4" color TFT LCD screen of the MP727 (with 240 x 320 resolution) allows you to view JPGs and video (in MPG, VOB, MP4, AVI, FLV and WMV formats). With the built-in tuner, you can also listen to FM radio. This USB 2.0 Hi-speed device is compact (1.85" x 3.87" x 0.37") and allows you to transport media files from Windows 7/Vista/XP/2000 to enjoy on the go. This player differs from the lower cost MP707 model in that it has a larger display with a higher resolution (compared to the MP707's 2.0" display at 176 x 220), as well as a higher lithium polymer battery capacity (550mAh as opposed to 350mAh) with more audio play time per charge (twelve hours as opposed to the MP707's eleven hours). The Coby MP727 is FCC certified.
