Default Cowon J3 or Zune HD or Cowon V5 or something else

Planning to buy a PMP in the next two days.

i have the following
requirements : (Additional)

1. Good Sound Quality.
2. Good Video Playback.

3. No need of WiFi or additional Applications.
4. Good Battery Life.
5. 720p Video playback.
6. smooth Interface.
7. Good customer support.
8. Document Reader (txt, ebooks, pdf files).

9. Looks of the player doesn't matter.

Please help me out guys.

I aslo had considered the S : Flo2 for its awesome sound quality, but a weak interface and a probable lack of proper Customer support made me delete it from my final list.

Thanks everybody in advance, and sincere thanks to the Site Admins and Webmasters for this wonderful helpful site.

God Bless All.

The J3 wins for battery duration.
The V5 wins for Video size and formats.
The J3 isn't quite as smooth as the Zune UI, but it is closer than any previous Cowon.
Your best bet for ebooks would be the V5.

If you're willing to buy a V5 though, I recommend the Archos 5 internet tablet running Android. Same size, but far more potential.

These are two different beasts, RAMDAS. Get the big V5 for a windows CE based PMP with no Wifi but the ability to run win CE apps. Get the J3 for easier pocket-ability and the potential of custom flash-based menus and media apps.

@ RAMDAS

Let us know how the J3 rocks, man. Did you go with the 16GB?

I've got $200 burning a hole in my pocket. It's gonna be a J3 or 1/3 of the way to some woody Grados.
