There were easily 2 options in front of my. iPod Touch 32GB vs Cowon D3 32GB. Following is the reasoning why I went for Cowon.
My expectations from a video mp3 player were:
1. It should sound great! No compromise.
Cowon is well known for giving the best possible sound output any device can give. And it stood true to it. It's sound quality is much much better tha$
2. It should play FLAC files. (Just listen your fav song in FLAC format, then you will know why is this a criteria)
I have my favorite music in FLAC format. I just can't convey how great it sounds in Cowon. iPod on other hand, converts music files to be stored on it$
3. It should play video.
I can simply drag and drop the avi movies in cowon. and it plays wonderfully even 1080p HD movies! the AMOLED screen is bright and crisp. Also, the wi$
4. It should have a FM radio.
FM Radio. This is a must for any music player. I just don't get it, why iPod doesn't have FM in it.
5. I should be able to download games on it.
Games. The only reason I bought Cowon D3 instead of Cowon J3. Their is a way by which you can put android market on it which offers many free games to$
6. It should have flash memory (not hard disk). Yet should have lots of space on it.
Cowon D3 has internal memory of 32GB and you can insert a 32GB card in it. So basically it is a 64GB music player!
The ONLY downside of D3 is it offers 21 hours of continuous music playback against 40 hours of iPod. But you can enjoy a 1080p HD movie on it for 10 h$
Bottomline: Even though there are many goodies which are offered by iPod and Cowon D3. The single most important thing is the better audio and video experience. And I found Cowon to excel in both these.
