Can you give a link to that CNET review? I only found some photos and a standard press release text...

FWIW, the player isn't released outside of Korea yet. But I told you that already in another thread.

(Korean release date was 5 days ago.)

For the umpteenth time: What part of THE PLAYER IS NOT YET AVAILABLE don't you understand?

CNET is a multinational site and got their hands on a player directly from Korea... ABI is run by Enzo, and he has no convenient contacts in South East Asia. There isn't even a release date yet for the international market.

According to the cnet.co.uk review it scores a 7.9. Not bad actually, but they also have a pre-production unit. This means that it's still an incomplete review.

I'm already very sure that the CNET review got at least a few things wrong, as usual (kickstand is included according to Cowon, there's certainly ID3 browsing, the Creative Zen comparison is just plain wrong, etc)... ah well, can't wait to get mine.

I can't wait either, as a REAL review would be nice. It just that we'll have to settle for the shills (cnet,etc) doing it for the time being. Hope your O2 gets here soon DFKT!!!!

It lost two points for.... uhhh? Screen maybe not being as good? Awesome.

See this is why I hate Cnet so much. They have interesting articles from time to time but their reviews are so damn bias! All the poor lesser known brands get shafted for no real reason and their sponsors (and other big name brands) seem to get a lot more praises than they deserve.

I can't wait for a real unbias (well, not really unbias since apple gets no love here) review of the O2.

Maybe not lead.... more like a shiny gemstone like a diamond or ruby or something. Nice to look at BUT COMPLETELY POINTLESS.

They usually have very good design but always seems to be missing features.

its a play on words silly, GOLD standard gold being the important part, lead being one of those things they have always wanted to be able to turn to gold, the whole magic and alchemy stuff and that ability. And the fact that lead in comparison to gold is worthless.

So the GOLD standard that is being praised as ZOMG AMAZING is carp.

and many precious stones and gemstones have their place in industrial environments, diamond cutting tools, garnet used in water for cutting super hard materials as well.
