Can not read by folder, so it is hard to find a music if artist is not referred.

The software and UI aren't very polished, lockups aren't entirely uncommon.

5 agree

Questionable build quality--feels platicky and seems flimsy.

5 agree

not very intuitive or user friendly

A little on the bulky side.

The Coby MP828 is a touchscreen, video MP3 player featuring a 2.8” touchscreen display for quick and easy access to media files. Technically, its in the same category as the iPod Touch, but lacks WiFi or Internet access, and does not support any new apps to be installed. The top unit in the MP800 series, the player features a camera for capturing photos and videos, support for Xvid video playback, support for MP3 and iTune audio files, and support for FM radio with tags. Plus it includes a miniSD memory expansion port for upgrading past the 4GB/8GB storage limit. Like its 800-Series siblings, it has a 25-hour rechargeable battery, and stereo/USB connections. Users report that the Coby MP828 performs well and is easy to use. However, its screen is weak and prone to shattering if accidentally dropped.

Bought this for my 7 year old and he is overly excited about it. Does what he wants. Do I recommend it for an adult It is cheap quality and doesn't do a whole lot. But It puts a smile on my son's face and that's all he wanted :)

Could someone tell me how to set date on mp828..get to month and day but can't seem to save it..



03/01/2013 12:42

It's set up as a European date: day of month, month, year. So today would look like 010313. We figured that out because when we tried to set up February 28, 2013 last night, the middle field would not go past 12. Eureka - it's for month, not day of month!

How do I get text on it? I've put this freaking book in the ebook folder, deleted it, and put it back more times than I can count, and the stupid thing won't let me read it.

02/26/2012 07:27

So I've gathered this device is very comparable to an iPod, excluding the capability to access Internet or download new apps. My question is, will it work anywhere u can dock an iPod? Meaning does it fit? Thinking about getting a coby mp828, also looking for compatible DVD/ sound system, but nothin refers to docking a coby mp, only iPod docking



04/14/2012 07:02

it does not fit ipod docking stations, it does not appear to be able to dock on anything, must use the USB cord...trying to find a work around myself- received as a gift...I would not recommend it at all.

What is the explorer icon for if you cant get wifi on it or internet?

12/03/2011 03:18

No, It's just a feature to insert/load a text that you would like to take with you type of thing.
