Sound quality is very good as is normal with iRiver players.
G. C. Robinson
I ran into problems however, because I could not sync the device to my Windows Media Player.
Melanie Gallant
Poorly designed, poorly executed, and downright user unfriendly.

I got this one from Bestbuy and have enjoyed it for three days.

Pros:

--the sound quality (and the recording quality) is great, not less than or even better than iRiver iFP 700 series and iFP 800 series which use Philips chips;

--the design is very cool, far more than the above two series;

--the size is amusingly small;

--the battery life is great ( I am still using the one that came with the player);

--If you have installed Windows Media Player 10 in your computer, it can be used directly as a UMS, without the need to chage firmware.

Cons:

--Unbelievably, no FM tuner!!!

--No armband or belt clip!!!

With Christmas appraoching I wanted to beat the rush and get a MP3 player as a gift for my son. I read reviews like this till all hours trying to decide. I have an I RIver 795 that I have used for over a year with little trouble and still works fine. I thought about an I-pod shuffle, but I think this is a much better value with a display and settings and most importantly a battery. The thought of having to recharge a player on your computer like the I-pods is just not practical. I asked about a wall charger at Best Buy - 40 extra dollars - no thanks. My I-River runs forever on a double A. I already loaded all the songs he wants on with Windows Media Player 10 - which comes with the player if you don't already have it. I think MP 10 is relatively easy to use but I know some people don't like it.

I got the 512 MB version for 100 bucks, not bad. It is very small and has a nice blue display. Sounded good and has an eq to adjust to your liking. I didn't see another disc to manage the songs once they are on the player so I will have to figure that out in December. The I-River is a good value for the money and with the protection plan at Best Buy your covered for 2 years so they say. I would add that I use WMA files only - this just makes things easier. I tried Rhapsody and could not get any files onto my player. Napster takes only a few minutes so I use it. If you need a basic player and can do without the hype of an I-pod, this is worth a look. I think if you read the reviews of the other brands that will help narrow down the choices. Happy hunting....

Overall, apart from the USB protocol, I'd like to rate this player as good. Audio quality is outstanding, Ogg Vorbis support nice, battery consumption bearable.

Unfortunately, iRiver decided to make a nicely anti-competitive deal with Microsoft to use the Media Transfer Protocol (a [in Microsoft terms] standardised protocol for transferring media based on the Picture Transfer Protocol) instead of the USB Mass Storage protocol popularised by USB flash drives. Due to the open nature of the UMS standard, most USB-compatible operating systems support it, whilst the support for MTP is heavily lacking at best: the user is confined to Windows XP (and Windows Media Player 10, even though more MTP-compatible players for Windows are popping up). Primitive support is possible with gPhoto under Linux and Mac OS X users can just stay out.

If warranty is not a sacred term to you, the website [...] has the Hongkong-Australian drivers to make your T30 UMS-compatible. The instructions can be viewed on-site; the list of benefits and sacrifices is as follows:

Benefits:

* UMS support (i.e. compatibility with Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and any other inclined system)

* Vorbis Comment (Vorbis's IDv3 tag equivalent) support (MTP seems to be transferring this data outside the file, so the player doesn't seem to feel obliged reading it from the file)

* EU versions: French law limiting maximum volume worked around

Sacrifices:

* Warranty

* Player itself if firmware update is aborted before completing (e.g. due to power shortage)

* The player "name" (can be reset via menu)

(* I'm not sure about DRM-encumbered WMA files...)

The player still seems to have the long list of languages even after the update (you aren't confined to English and Cantonese).

If you are a Linux user, DON'T be fooled by the lure of this players ability to play OGG-Vorbis music files. This player uses a Microsoft only interface called "Music Transfer Protocol", or MTP, and can only be accessed by Microsoft Windows Media Player, version 10. (And by what I have been reading on the blog groups this player is also not usable by Macintosh Apple - MacOS-X users.)

It would seem that the Iriver Corporation has "partnered" with Microsoft and have turned their backs on their Linux customers by not producing a comparable Linux upload utility or even making it so we can convert the unit to a UMS device (USB mass storage) so we can use it too.

I am VERY sorry and disappointed that I bought this music player (based on my good experience with my IFP890, UMS enabled) only to find out that I can't use the unit because I can't upload music to it.

If you are a Linux user, the Iriver T30 (and possibly other later models.) is NOT the music player for you! SAVE YOUR MONEY AND DON'T BUY IT!!

Thank you for reading this review.
