Cowon D2+ quick review!

So quick, you won't even know what hit you.

User details
  • 99% on linux - 1% on Vista to print photos
  • Collection of mp3s, some flac
  • Only needs music playback.
  • *quality* music output, not interested in what's popular.

Cowon D2 review points
  • Works with linux - shows up as storage device
  • Feels slightly cheap, sadly
  • Good price
  • Audio quality - comparable to the IAudio 7 - hard to say as the 7 died, hence the D2+
  • Touch screen seems to be resistive, so using tip of fingernail or the included stylus is the way to go.
  • Menus generally quite intuitive, though it took me a few minutes to find the "back" button on the browser ;-)
  • Almost double the size of the IAudio 7 but still pocketable. I worry about the screen though.
  • Startup somewhat slow

Bottom line: awesome player for the price.
