The Cowon X7 looks like an old-fashioned PDA, and its touchscreen isn't significantly more responsive - but appearances can be deceptive. The X7 proves its worth on long journeys with a huge battery life and rugged build quality, both of which are...

The X7 isn't as pretty or as glossy as some of its rivals, but if you want a big, good-quality screen, great sound and an unfeasibly massive battery life, this is the media player for you....

The X7 is looking to challenge the iPod Classic as a roomy source for media. A 120GB hard disk drive (and 2GB of flash), large, PDA-style screen, and exhaustive features and format support are its key selling points.It also has an FM radio, sound...

The Cowon X7 is priced at Rs. 17,500. Now let's be clear, the X7 is a bit of a disaster and we wished Cowon didn't cripple it so much. What is good about the X7 is the massive storage space, the great audio quality, customization options and the...

Though it only supports standard definition video and doesn't really advance the PMP breed at £230 the 120GB version the X7 is still reasonable value. The sound it produces is good, the screen is a pleasure to watch and the battery life is...

The Cowon X7 is a huge disappointment. Its massive storage capacity and amazing battery life coupled with FLAC support and stellar audio quality makes it a great device for audiophiles, but its negatives far outweigh the positives. A poor UI, a...

Cowon's X7 is the definition of a mixed bag. The overall design is lovely, but the low screen resolution, quirky UI and use of a propriety connection cable dampens our excitement. That said, we looped a video for around nine hours before seeing any...

Le X7 prend le relais du mythique X5 avec difficulté. Le produit fait correctement son travail mais il présente tout de même quelques défauts...

Cowons mobile Jukebox überzeugt weniger durch Design als durch innere Werte. Starke Akkus, breite Formatunterstützung und guter Klang gehören...

International Review By hardnsoft.ru on -

Теперь становится понятной природа загадочных мяукающих звуков, издаваемых плеером время от времени: это не сигнал из динамика, оповещающий о неком действии, свершившемся в железных мозгах аппарата, а звук остановки или разгона шпинделя диска! Не...

Macht unabhängig Der Cowon X7 macht seinen Besitzer unabhängig: Von der Steckdose durch den großen Akku und von der Musikindustrie durch das eingebaute Radio mit Aufnahmefunktion. Beim doch recht hohen Preis ist es allerdings schade, dass...

Mit dem X7 besetzt Cowon eine Nische, die klar definiert ist und bisher kein nennenswertes Konkurrenz-Modell hervorgebracht hat. Mit einer großen Festplatte sowie einem Touchscreen ausgestattet, betritt man in dieser Hinsicht Neuland. Allerdings...

Comme vous avez pu le lire dans ce test, notre avis sur ce Cowon X7 est assez mitigé. D’un côté, nous avons un baladeur avec une grande capacité et une excellente qualité sonore, de l’autre un baladeur encombrant qui...
