Help Potential d2 buyer: need some feedback regarding the touch screen

Hello all,

So I'm close to getting a d2+. I have read many reviews, and the vast majority of them consider the touch screen not very easy to use and the whole interface quite unintuitive. There were some reviews stating this as a big annoyance.

Could any regular d2+ users give me some feedback on this thing? Is it really such a big issue? Your opinion is very much appreciated!

Thank you in advance.

I owned a D2+; I use the touch screen with the stylus pen. It took me two days to figure out the whole interface, so I don't think of it as a big problem. Besides, you can also have a different look of the interface by installing many themes and flash skins.

I have the D2, and it's a breeze to use. Navigating the library is actually quite easy & fast, and I use my finger - no stylus for me. Plus, as mentioned, you can load UCI's on it and have a completely different look to suit you mood, and it can be flashed to the D2+ firmware.

Mine is older, still in excellent condition, a pleasure to use, and even with all my players I still love it.

Hi and thanks for your feedback!

Actually what happened is that amazon.com won't ship to Canada (where I reside right now) and after extensive searching, I couldn't find it anywhere else for a reasonable price.. So, no D2 for me I bought a sansa fuze and I'm happy so far, but I'll keep an eye on Cowon prices for Canada..

Thanks a lot!

You can get many D2s from eBAY. Touch screen's responsiveness improves with use. And SQ is just great.
I have the Fuze & Samsung P3 too. But I feel D2 BBE very configurable. Get Rockbox onto your Fuze. Its OF supports Sandisk slotRadio cards.
