The resistive screen is actually pretty good and is almost as smooth as a capacitive one. Plus, I just found out that scrolling through long lists is a snap by dragging on the far left side of the list of artists, etc. It is also quite slow compared to some other players
But...the Cowon J3 is gorgeous! That ARMOLED screen with the superb UI is very hard to resist. Also, IMO the now playing screen on the J3 slightly edges out the X7. It also appears to be snappier than even the iPod Touch.
However, I also have a pretty good capacitive player, the iPod Touch 4G, 64GB, and using EQu to customize the SQ. And to top it off, I also have a 160GB iPod Classic. I got the Classic awhile back to store all my music but so far I only have about 27GB.
So, if you were me, which player would you keep?
P.S. I cannot keep both because my wife is already at the boiling point, but that's another story.
I would probably keep a high capacity one and a low capacity one if i had to choose between all the devices you have. But since you're asking for a cowon one, i'd keep the j3 even tho i had one fail on me... main reason being that you do have a huge capacity player (the classic) not even nearing it's full capacity.
Also, i know it's a bit out of topic but, could you tell me what do you think about the sq of the j3 vs the touch 4g? since you have both, i've always wondered about that but i don't have enough money to get a touch 4g (not yet at least, lol)
