Default what to buy 02 or A3?

I dont know which one to buy. as i personally care more about vidoe quality other pmp are out of the question. i read a lot about both pmp and both of them have a great range of format and file support but non can read 720p. I dont care waiting for firmware upgrades as long it will support 720p. so what should i buy A3 or O2?

I have both and have relegated the A3 to video recorder. Since the O2 does not record video. I like the A3 for it's hard drive capacity, but the O2 has become my favorite. They both sound the same to me audio wise, but I'm no expert. As for video the O2 plays mpeg4 videos that my A3 would not. Video looks great on both screens, but I'm using 55 year old eyes with glasses, your vision may vary.

When i owned the A3 720p didnt play very well if at all. You can check out my thoughts in the Cowon A3 Review.

To me, the bigger differences between the two are the dvr(a3), touch screen(o2), clumsy joystick(a3), battery life(o2). I think between the 2, you will have a better chance at getting upgrades from the o2 seeing its newer. Cant imaging the a3 getting many more updates, especially really good ones. I think they will work with the o2 a little. The screen quality on the a3 is a little better, but you do pay for it with battery life.

So you dont see the 720p work as they should work even in the o2.
