Cowon iAudio U5 Now Available, See it in actioncomment: 22 | Thursday, January 10 (2008) 11:50PM | Posted by Michael
Perhaps just as disappointing as Creative's pitiful showing at CES, was Cowon's no show. Sure they had a booth, but nothing in it that we haven't seen before. Sometimes I just wish DAP companies pulled an iriver, and released a bunch of prototypes. At least it shows us they're working on something. Just do me a favor and make sure they're better than that lackluster iAudio U5. It just recently went on sale in the US, and Cowon America has provided this walkthrough video of it:
Coming from Cowon, we can be confident that sound quality will be well above average. But everything else just seems so 2006 to me. From the small screen, to the lower capacities, and worst of all, the codec support. You won't find FLAC here, not even Ogg. The U5 supports just MP3, WMA, and WAV files. The design looks pretty plain, but I've seen much worse. The 4GB retails for $119, and the 8GB for $159.
