    "Simple and Easy"

    September 3, 2011  |   By iskeptical

    Version: Quintessential Player 5.0.121

    Pros

    Its really good if you want something simple just to play music

    Cons

    Nothing I've noticed so far it's pretty straightforward for anyone to use

    Summary

    My windows media player 11 recently had issues launching so i needed a music player just to listen to my music mostly, It's simple and has a lot of skins to choose from if you like personalizing your computer, it's a small file too so if you're looking for something small and simple I would recommend this:)

    "This is a great product!!!"

    June 13, 2011  |   By Jon4374

    Version: Quintessential Player 5.0.121

    Pros

    It is easy to use, quick to set up and adding things to it is fairly simple. I like the play que, you can set up a list of stuff to listen to, and change it depending on your mood at the moment.

    Cons

    It can be a little confusing until it gets itself completely set up. It has no burn disc feature. It doesn't like things in Winamp format.

    Summary

    This is one of the best media players I have run across. I have recommended it to several of my friends already. With the downloadable skins it can be made fit fit just about anyone's taste.

    "Old version was better"

    March 19, 2011  |   By zaivala

    Version: Quintessential Player 5.0.121

    Pros

    This used to be a great product. It still runs like the old one. But...

    Cons

    I have no clue why, but QP scans many of my files and renames them. I did not have this problem with QCD 3. Some of the artists and song titles it comes up with would be hilarious, if it weren't MY STUFF. I can't find a forum or contact address.

    Summary

    I can't find anything better to use. Any suggestions? WMP sux, WinAmp sux, RealPlayer REALLY sux, and I hate Apple products.

    "All around great media player."

    December 27, 2010  |   By blur57

    Version: Quintessential Player 5.0.121

    Pros

    Simple and nice looking. Pretty green and silver look.

    Cons

    For some reason when I adjust the volume it also changes windows XP volume too.
    This is annoying. And I have not found a solution.

    Summary

    Great. Losses a star because of volume issue.

    "I like it, good interface."

    September 2, 2010  |   By don.pittman

    Version: Quintessential Player 5.0.121

    Pros

    It works well for me.

    Cons

    I haven't used it long enough to find any but, I'm sure there are

    Summary

    For me it does everything I need. The first thing new users should do is go through the advanced options. It is not as techie as foobar. I tried it and it seemed I fought it all the way. The tagging is done through grace. I have always had luck with them. I read one review that said it took a long time to load, but I loads faster for me than Winamp or Media Monkey. Even with a large library. I have not tried the video and probably won't, VLC does anything I ask it to. I realize there are only a few people that read the reviews, but if you read this; try it. No cost and if you don't like it uninstall it. No harm no fowl.

    "Original was better"

    July 31, 2010  |   By mr_de_01

    Version: Quintessential Player 5.0.121

    Pros

    It works ok

    Cons

    Loads way to slow- dosn't want to load codec's for file coversion such as mp3 so have to use old one to convert from cd or wave to mp3

    Summary

    I still use the old one on 3 of my computers even though i have the media player one on them also because it lags to much.
    Only use the media player on 1 laptop because I can't find the original one to reinstall.

    "Awful Tagging System"

    July 5, 2010  |   By DaturaOnFire

    Version: Quintessential Player 5.0.121

    Pros

    Attractive Skin
    Small CPU Footprint

    Cons

    Slow, Inaccurate Tagging System

    Summary

    I've been looking for a media player to replace the infuriating iTunes; it seems all I can kind is more programs to infuriate me. QP is a nice-looking program, runs clean, but when it imported my library, I let it automatically look up the info for my music collection; big mistake. I have a lot of j-pop and foreign music, and it slapped the most random labels on the songs it didn't recognize. There is an option to update using the song's own tag, but it's been slow to respond, and frankly, I do not feel like re-tagging a couple hundred songs. I'll stick with FooBar and give this one a pass. Will be good for someone who doesn't have unusual files to tag, though.
