I bought this for several reasons: I wanted a music box a little more discrete than my aging CD player, and I wanted to be able to change my playlist easily and accomidate all the music I would want for a week. At this price, I got all I wanted and more. I can wedge this in my pocket, the batteries last very long, the sound quality is top-notch, and it comes with an FM radio and an excellent voice recorder.
When I encode the songs as 128kbps 44khz MP3s, I can fit about two hours of music on this jewel, which is enough for me. At that quality, my ears cannot discern the difference between that and a CD unless I'm deliberatly looking for the difference, which I never am and you probably won't be. I once fit 4 hours of music at 64kbps (long car ride), but I was able to discern an annoying degragation in quality.
A word of advice: in today's world, this particular MP3 player is taylored for me, but might not be for you. I have a modest CD collection which I can count on my fingures, and I can listen to the same song a hundred times and still enjoy it. If you have fourty CDs and can't bear to listen to the same song twice in one week or demand that your music be uncompressed, spring for an iPod. If you're someone like me but with a larger CD collection, consider this only a model with more memory. Also consider the new 700 line of MP3 players from iRiver. They seem to be basically the same as this one only different aesthetics and twice the battery life, at least according to the ads.Read more ›
And then there is the line in recording feature. It sounds complex but it is really simple. Just use the supplied cord and convert all CD, LP, tape collection you have into MP3.
The price of course is much better than any other premuim player on the market. Do not confuse this with cheap imports that are marketed under big company names.
128 MB is barely enough for 2 CDs; lacking for today's music collections, especially when compared to similar products with 1 GB and 2 GB storage capacities. Also, this player does not support USB 2.0, which means waiting a relatively long time for file transfer. Luckily, iRiver made a smart move by allowing savvy users to reflash the firmware with experimental UMD support.
Sound quality is decent, but don't expect it to match a certain shuffling competitor's near-perfect square wave reproduction. Frequency response is not flat, and extraneous harmonics are introduced into the output signal.
A third thing I would like to mention is the use of AA batteries. This thing goes through them like nothing, with minimal listening time (2 to 3 hours). If batteries are as hard to come by for you as they are here, you're going to find yourself being without music often.
The durability is sorely lacking. A month after purchase, the buttons and the joystick had lost their responsitivity. You would have to press the same button repeatedly 3-4 times for it to register. The battery case no longer wants to stay shut without tape. The last straw is when the joystick broke off and stopped functioning completely, causing me to write this review.
This is an on-the-go music player. It should be able to hold up to the stresses of being in a backpack. If you are looking for an up-to-date, functional MP3 player, "shuffle" to another brand.
