As were many others, I was reluctant to purchase an MP3 player from a company that normally manufactures microwave ovens, dehumidifiers, and other home appliances. I watched reviews and comments about the ibiza for a month before jumping in. I've owned several hard drive MP3 players in the last year, culminating in an Archos 504 WiFi that was working pretty well for me until Urge and Rhapsody merged, and I lost a compatible subscription based music service.

The Haier Ibiza is the first player I've owned that hits every major requirement I have. Subscription based music with a broad, deep catalog, unprotected music, unrestricted WiFi, bluetooth, a reasonable, quick, well designed UI, etc.

Additionally, the development team at VariaMobile, the folks who are developing the software for this device have taken a very open, community driven approach to making this device better.

Downside? There are no accessories yet, (specifically a docking station). The player cannot be used while connected USB to your computer, (my previous Archos models would prompt, asking if it should connect, or simply charge).

Haier and Varia have put together a potent combination of features that more than justify the price, (some have complained it is too expensive). Anyone looking for a player that does music, subscriptions, and pod-casts will not be disappointed. I haven't even dug into the video features yet.

I'm almost 70 years old and wanted an I-Pod or something similar to listen mostly to podcasts and secondarily to music and FM radio. I've never owned an I-Pod before so don't have a great basis to compare with. But I do love the Ibiza Rhapsody. I didn't care for the provided earbuds because after a while they hurt my ears. But I found a nice headset from Wal-Mart for $7 that's just perfect because the "buds" don't stick inside the ear but rest on the outside (they're secured by an ear loop). The quality of the music is astonishing to me. Fats Domino never sounded better (told you I was 69!). I was mostly super pleased at the wide variety of podcasts that were available and that I could load onto the Rhapsody with just a click--and no PC needed. I like downloading all that are of potential interest to me and then deleting them after I've listened to them. One last, big point for me. I got the Ibiza for Christmas and four days later it stopped working. Amazon shipped me a new one even before they had the "broken" one picked up from me. I didn't have to do anything and had a replacement within a few days. The "new" one has worked perfectly. And with this kind of service available from Amazon, why would you ever order an Ibiza anywhere else? Hope my experience helps you make a decision. I'm thrilled!

I've had this player for about a month and I truly do love it! I became hooked on Rhapsody when I bought the Sonos system about a year ago - no need to buy music, and I know that I'm not stealing it. I quickly upgraded to "Rhapsody to go" for my Creative Zen micro; mostly for gym use. I've been looking for a device like the Ibiza since then. Early reviews knocked it for not having an equalizer.

There have been two firmware upgrades since I've owned this unit..the first one was fairly transparent, but after the second one, there was all of a sudden an equalizer; no need to connect to the computer for this. The sound quality was excellent when flat, but I've kind of liked the "jazz" setting. There are no custom settings, but it should satisfy those that must have some sort of ability to tweak the sound.

It's actually fun to grab stuff right from Rhapsody, but it does drain the battery faster than listening from the hard drive. This should be no surprise to anyone. Dragging songs from my computer's hard drive to the player via WMP is a breeze, and it's very fast.

This is a great device. And for those who think it's ugly, I have the black one and it looks much better than the pictures would suggest.

This is an outstanding player that does it all. With a great screen and features. the wireless connect to Rhapsody is amazing, it updates player and renews licenses with out connecting to your PC. The ease of use and touch pad makes it easy to scroll.

They way the Album art appears in dual background is really cool. Soubd quality is outstanding, earbuds come with 3 different sizes so they are very comfortable.

Puts the iPod to shame.

The ibiza has great potential:
1. It has wifi and a web browser, but - the web browser is hard to use with the touch pad; the wifi drains battery life (<10 hrs even if it not in use)
2. Podcast support over wifi, but some of the podcast subscriptions just don't work - I'm sticking with my iPod for now
3. Streaming video, but many of the videos just give error messages
4. Streaming Rhapsody music is great
5. The touchpad interface is GREAT - I like it just as much as the iPod, but - it is not used for FF/REW and volume control when it could be (like iPod). The dedicated FF/REW buttons are horrible when trying to FF/REW
6. Customer support is GREAT, much better than Apple.
7. No accessories - just try to find a decent case.
8. Good looking and solid case
9. A lot of features to play with for the buck

For now, this is a work in progress. If the great programmers keep working on it and Haier continues support, I think it will deserve 5 stars soon.
