Product Description

Product Description

The iRiver Clix features an eye-catching direct-click interface that makes it easy to fly through your media collection and find the right song video photo or video game. The unit is centered around a vivid 2.2-inch color LCD display which delivers remarkably clear 320 x 240 (QVGA) resolution for watching videos and playing flash-based games. With support for MP3 WMA ASF Ogg JPEG MPEG-4 and Flash Lite 1.1 files users can choose from a ton of other audio and video formats. The iRiver Clix even works with Windows Media Player 10 and its variety of affiliated online music stores and subscription services including PlaysForSure services such as Napster and Rhapsody. 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

I am a tough reviewer and rarely give 5 stars, but this product earns it.

When I first opened the package and saw the Clix, I thought that it was too small. How can they put much into a small and light package like that?

Well, they definitely did. The interface is better than the iPod's. You push an edge of the screen to navigate and set options. It is very intuitive and I have done a lot without reading the manual.

The FM capabilities are amazing. The auto-tune to set the presets automatically picked up all the stations in my area perfectly -- no mistakes. I could then delete the ones I don't want. The high-resolution display does a great job of displaying all the presets with a verticle line and indicators where each station is. When reaching the highest setting, just push up again and it goes to the lowest, which is what one would want. ALL the stations in my area came in very clearly.

For Audible books it's great, and loading to the device doesn't require iTunes (desktop) which is inferior to Audible's [...] desktop program. With 4G of storage, I can put all of my audio books on it.

It works great as a MP3 player. The sound seems better than my 5G 80gig video iPod.

For me, I am going to use it for audio books and FM. I use the iPod for music because I can store 80gig on it.

I definitely recommend this product.

Personally, I really like it and I kind of had a hard time finding things I didn't like.

+ Great sound quality.

+ Beautiful screen, a little small but it does the job. Very high resolution.

+ Intuative interface. The controls are very easy to learn.

+ Clock is displayed at all times.

+ Many preset equalizers and one customizable.

+ Pictures can be applied as the background.

+ The screen's orientation can be portrait or landscape.

+ Smart button: It can control one command, that is cuztomizable on the fly by holding it down. (Play/pause, Main Menu, Shuffle on/off etc.)

+ Text viewer. It's just plain handy.

+ It's very small, convenient to hold, and very, very sexy.

+ Displays next track, progress in to the song and total song length.

+ Album art is displayed on the Now Playing screen.

+ The battery meter seems to be reliable.

+/- 4 gigs. For someone with a huge colleciton of music, this may not be for you. If you want access to all of your music on a whim, then go bigger. For people (like me) who have smaller collections, it's great.

+/- Rechargable. One cannot change batteries when they are dead, so it has to be plugged in, and eventually, it will be a paper weight because rechargable batteries die.

- Having to use Media Player to synch files (although that seems to be a falsehood. Opening the directory allows one to drag and drop files to the device. They seem to play normally. (So + then?)

- Movies are in AVI format only. Find a converter for other formats. : (

- The text viewer does not have word wrap, so it breaks words up.

- Text viewer does not recognize enter spaces in documents.

I have an IPOD nano and this Iriver Clix 4G and I now prefer the Clix. It's simple to use, light, small, and encapsules a lot in one device. The display is crystal clear, and by my non-expert standards, has great sound quality. I absolutely love it. The accessories choices available for the Clix are also excellent. It works great in my car and has excellent battery life.

My only mild concern is that it is not a truly cross-platform product and depends on Windows Media Player.

I did a lot of research and found the perfect MP3 Player, the iRiver clix. It is everything I read about and more. Here's my comments on it's different features...

*Sound: Best I've hear from any MP3 player.
*Interface: Unique and very simple to use. Looks very cool. Displays the actual album cover. Comes with cool wallpaper that can be set to automatically change daily. Easily synch from Windows Media Player.
*Video: You can download a converter from the iRiver wesbite that easily converts any video. Very nice.
*Tuner: Has an auto preset feature. Sounds great.
*Photos: Look great.
*Extra features: Text reader is nice. You can record external sounds and input from another device. Has an alarm clock. Comes with several Flash games. You can download more free one's from iRiver.

I highly recommend the cradle device accessory. It comes with a little remote and turns your MP3 player into a very cool alarm clock. You can wake to different sounds or music. You can also play music and watch videos out loud.

I have two players. The more elaborate Creative Zen W and this one for the gym walks and I keep it in my purse when I am stuck somewhere. It is the easiest interface and ssooooo easy to use in the gym. No stopping on machines to move to another song just a click and you maneuver through the menu. Can't be more user friendly. I love that it's light and adaptable and now that they make the plastic clip holder I am in heaven.

This is my second I-River and it is making my friends think twice about the cult that is Ipod.
