Against Low battery life looks and feels cheap sound and vision performance is bettered elsewhere. There’s a 4in screen with an x resolution. The Good Price; image quality; sound quality; amazing video and audio codec support; support for DVD VOB files; direct video and audio hard disk recording and encoding.

Cowon A3 review: Cowon A3 – CNET

We’ve changed, we promise. The mind seriously boggles at this oversight. And, if you’re bored of your own tunes, there’s an FM radio, and a built-in microphone for recording. The Cowon A3 seems a dated, plastic, lumpen figure, and it struggles, too, to sell itself as cown portable.


First impressions of this multimedia player are underwhelming. Images up to 15 megapixels in resolution are also supported, with zoom controls s3 you need them.

Beautiful screen for watching movies and excellent sound quality, but you pay for this in terms of the size and weight of the player; it is not something you will go jogging with. The interface is rather dowdy, while the joystick control method is erratic and fiddly.


Still, we could look past at least some of these foibles if the rest of the player delivers the goods. Post a quick review now to join the conversation!

See any errors on this page? And video and cowpn is okay, but it doesn’t quite reach the heights of the top dogs in this sector. Advanced Overlay Navigation An overlay navigation function that shows the playback screen during video playback lets you enjoy the convenience of navigating through other contents in your player. This screen has x resolution and is powered by TI’s new Davinci Chipset. JetAudio, by itself, wouldn’t play the recorded videos.

Excluding the ‘back’ button, the coeon of each of these buttons change depending on what mode the player is being used in — on-screen displays always tell you what does what.
