Pros: THE BEST MP3 PLAYER HAVE EVER HEARD

Cons: THIS DOES LIKE MAC'S !!!

Fairly new to mp3 players, tried the Ipod Nano 6th Gen. Never would shuffle worth a damn.

Same 150 songs over and over. Researched this J3 here and purchased it. Followed ALL instructions as to installing the newest `firmware' using my Mac. Wrote a polite letter to those people in the country it was made. Too old for this nonsense. When the songs change the volume blasts louder, plugged in the Pico amp, sounds better, BUT CANNOT install firmware.

Much nicer then the Ipod but has different items to learn, right?  Please help this  feeble old guy 

with the  updated firmware.OK?

Now a week later, it does, if your careful work with a Mac, all the comments and data above is 

right on the money, this is heads and shoulders ahead of the IPod. You can by a simple `click'

turn any song into a `live' recording with reverb large rooms or small, the settings are almost unlimited. And playlists are IMHO gone, I found a very simple way to place your mp3 or better

into the J3 with making the `lists'. I did have to use an older pc to install the 2.29 firmware.

Then back to the Mac for all other projects. Caveat: Install `BlueHarvest' in your Mac first___

otherwise the J3 very well might `brick'. Before using with a Mac clean ALL caches & cookies.

I use OnyX to Clean the Mac, it is free. This J3 will make your listening so much more enjoyable. After the  first few recharges it will play music for over 2 days non-stop.

Since finding this and reading all reviews here, I have yet to turn on my large system, "totally-tubes" the only way to fly, analog. FYI: When attempting to understand, it think Asian and go from there because Cowon will NOT answer your questions. Cheers!
