Amazon.com Product Description
Measuring just 2.7 by 1.8 by 0.6 inches and weighing a mere 2.5 ounces, the Clix is about the size of a business card. But don't be fooled, as the unit features 2 GB of internal flash memory, which is capable of storing approximately 32 hours of CD-quality MP3 music (encoded at 128 kbps) or 64 hours of WMA tracks (at 64 kbps). The Clix also plays MPEG-4 Simple Profile (SP) files at a maximum of 384 kbps and 15 frames per second, with audio encoded in MP3 format. Should you need to convert other formats to MPEG-4, simply download the free iRiverter utility and you're set.
The display also doubles as the control interface, so you don't have to mess with any cumbersome buttons or controls. And unlike the touchscreens normally found on PDAs, the Clix's direct-click feature responds to gentle fingertip pressure, eliminating the need for pens or control keys.
Meanwhile, a built-in microphone makes the iRiver Clix an ultracompact dictation machine. The recording quality is freely selectable and is controlled automatically. And listeners who hate to miss their favorite public radio program will dig the built-in FM tuner. Finally, the unit comes with several free Flash Lite games, including Launch Fighters (a Space Invaders remake, Log Jam, Barn Baron, and Sudoku.
Audio-wise, the Clix offers 10 EQ settings along, a user-defined EQ option, and SRS WOW virtual surround sound, which creates a 3-D soundscape and a superior bass performance. In addition, the Clix, which is compatible with Windows XP operating systems (SP1), sports a fast USB 2.0 interface for speedy file transfers. The device comes with a rechargeable lithium-polymer battery that delivers up to 25 hours of battery life per charge and is backed by a one-year warranty.

iRiver does a good job with their packaging by making it simple and clean, probably taking note of Apple's packaging strategy, though not as refined. All the included accessories are placed in clearly labeled paper boxes making it simple and easy to find what you need quickly. There is no foam padding of any sort to protect any of the accessories or the player itself but I do not think this will be a problem because the Clix is a flash based player. The Clix itself is protected by a sticker with a printed on animation of the "now playing" screen. There is a "starter kit" that comes with the Clix that contains the manual, quick start guide, software CD, various documentations, and a neoprene case with a screen cleaner. The case fits the player very snugly and is padded enough to ensure proper protection. The screen cleaner does a decent job though I sometimes found that it just smeared the oils from my skin instead of absorbing it.
The packaging for the cradle dock contains a series of boxes as well with no foam padding to protect anything but everything came out of the box in perfect condition. The cradle comes with a line-in cable, 3.5mm extension plug, the dock itself, and an IR remote.
I enjoyed the packaging but it did not wow me as Apple's packaging does. I was concerned with the lack of protection for the components though none of them were damaged. I would like it if iRiver included some plastic molds to hold their components to make it seem more professional while adding some protection at the same time.
The Clix is one of the most beautifully designed MP3 players I have ever seen.Read more ›
1. The size is 2GB obviously, so it replaces the nano more than the large ones.
2. You can buy the iPod outlet chargers and use it for this. Simply take out the USB cord that runs from the outlet charger and would go into the iPod, and instead use the USB cord that comes with the clix. Works just as well. I bought the Griffin PowerBlock.
3. I think a review here said that you can't use this as a storage device, but you can. Simply follow the instructions on page 11 of the manual booklet. (All you have to do is add a folder).
4. To convert videos to the acceptable .avi files for the player, go the iriver.com and search for 'iriverter'. The first link will take you to a page to down the program. You can even convert DVD files.
5. When you go to delete files from windows explorer or my computer, delete the free stuff, but don't delete the iriver folder under music. The player just uses this on its own.
6. WMP 11 is fine. It's tries to do more than it should, but you'll be set up within 5 minutes. Also, if you delete songs, make sure to do it from WMP 11 only. All other files can be deleted from explorer, but music must be deleted from WMP (or whatever you use to sync up.)
These are just useful notes about the player, nothing that distracts from it at all. Simply put, this is the worry free mp3 player. You won't buy it and then fret that you are missing a key feature or that it will crash on you. And the interface is so intuitive, the iPod should be ashamed.
Don't get me wrong, the ipod nano is a beautiful player but the Clix has a different approach with its original design. The controls are quite different, but work flawlessly with the player. The synchronization with the computer is easy and fast. The video playback is really nice (even if it's 15 fps, it's enough for musical videos, tv series, cartoons, etc.). The ability to read Text documents is a handy addition. Pictures slideshows work fine. FM radio may be helpful (not for me really). And the games are cool enough to pass some time (Sudoku is great!).
Anyway, in my opinion this Clix is one of the better players I've seen. The features are great, but the design is truly breathtaking. It's goood to see different and original designs.
