Anyone have any Cowon players

by Frizzel / December 14, 2008 2:53 PM PST

I'm looking to buy more of a PVP, that plays video smoothly(i know none are perfect), and has a good TV out display. I've been looking into Cowon and thought I narrowed it down to a couple players but would like an opinion between the A3 and O2 and Q5w and how they play video. I read the o2 doesn't have great screen res, but I'll be using more of the TV out function. The Q5 can drag. And the A3 doesn't play H.264 as advertised, and had a audio sync issue at one point. I'm not so much concerned with the looks, buttons, etc. I'm looking for more of the video perspective, because I'll be using it to watch shows and movies(mostly TV out), and I know Cowon can handle many video codecs. Thanks for any help.
