Good design for such a small size with largely simple interface (manual is on the packaged mini-CD in pdf). Optional UMS is a godsend as it bypasses proprietary software. Just plug it in and your computer recognizes it at as big floppy (have to install the software first for installation though). If you don't like that, there's another option to transfer from Windows Media Player 11.
The sound quality is about par for mp3 players but depends more on the quality of the mp3s. One thing for audiophiles is the option for FLAC, or loss less audio, but they may want to go for the 8 gig if planning on large amounts of FLAC. Headphones that come with it are pretty decent. Transfer rate is quick. Around 3.7 gigs rather than a full 4, but that was expected. The ability to store and read text files is pretty awesome, especially for students.
Video quality depends largely on the video you're adding. Same goes for pictures. Radio comes in loud and strong. Player comes with an area for a lanyard strap for securing it to your body.
The packaged software allows you to manage your music that way and can look up songs to fix the Mp3 tags as well as get cover art off the internet which also appears when you play the song. Personally, I think this is pretty cool, but in practice the software is extremely slow in finding, updating and saving the tag and cover art to the player, so thus I don't use it. That said, the feature is still pretty nice in theory.
Also, there is a capacity to record from the radio and spoken speech like most Iriver mp3 players.
Battery life for the internal rechargeable battery is not really their alleged 12 hours. More like 10, which still isn't bad, but not good compared to other players'.Read more ›
I bought the 8 GB version back in January. I was debating between this and the Sansa Clip, and boy do I wish I'd gone with the Clip.
I was swayed by pretty looks and a strange thought that I might someday want to watch movies on a tiny 1" screen. Beyond the appearance, I can think of no way to make a worse mp3 player. My basis for comparison is my Creative Zen Micro from 2005, and honestly, with exception to the screen and capacity, it wins hands down.
Honestly, you've got a pretty basic mp3 player here, but there are a couple of things that make it absolutely worthless.
The iriver LPlayer arranges your tracks alphabetically. Want to listen to an album in its proper order? Unless you stick track numbers (01, 02, 03,...) at the start of the file name, you won't be able to. I can't tell you how infuriating this is given iriver has had all the time in the world to fix such a little things. EVERY OTHER MP3 PLAYER ON THE MARKET READS ID3 TAGS PROPERLY. (ID3 tags carry information in the mp3 file that tells artist, album, etc.) There is absolutely no excuse for this, and it's a pretty clear sign that iriver doesn't listen to their customers at all. (I've emailed them on this issue to no avail.)
The next two things are not as infuriating, but still quite vexing. There is no gapless playback, and, at least with the latest firmware, iriver seems to think they can "fix" this by making fade-ins and fade-outs universal. Despite there being an option to turn fading on/off in the options, the option does nothing. And then second, the music quality is only average. If you have high-quality mp3 tracks, FLAC, Ogg Vorbis, etc.Read more ›
I got this a couple of weeks ago. It is not bad--looks good, sounds good (on Shure 210s, anyway).
Unlike some reviews the d-click seems fine to me.
My issues are:
a) it doesn't order songs well. There is no (easy) way to order things by Artist and then Album for example. Ever worse, Albums are not in alphabetical order. This is a real pain!
b) it doesn't play nicely with linux...you can get it to work, but out of the box it needs a little tweaking
Now all the reviews I read only delt with the music, video, & pictures. These are great features and easy to use. The only reason I purchased this was for the FM recorder feature. So very easy to use. The only problem I had was where I set the unit I would have trouble with reception. An easy fix. Now transfering to WMA was very easy and once it was transfered the files were not automatically deleted. A bonus for me. I wish there was a charger available that would recharge using batteries for travel. Maybe some day. When I contacted iriver they were very helpful and quick to respond to my questions;this was before I purchased the unit. You can set the record quality. The higher the quality the more memory it will take up. I would recommend practicing with it before you have a special recording to do. If you are looking for an easy to use mp3 player and FM recorder I would recommend this one for the price. I am very happy with my purchase.
