Summary: I had this product a few years back and it was GREAT for the time period. It worked wonderfully and even had a radio option (unlike most electronics at the time). Now, since we are in 2011, this electronic might seem a bit outdated (along with the zune)- but still, I think the product was very efficient and i was very happy with it!
Summary: This was my first mp3 player, and I've had it for at least four years. Sound is excellent, battery life is fairly good. (Mine is starting to be pretty short, because it's so old.) I heavily abused mine for those four years, and it is finally showing that abuse. I've dropped it in lakes, put it through the wash, run it over with bikes/cars, and dropped it long distances. The case and screen are indestructible. The software is what is finally dying.
Summary: I don't know why this product has Ogg Vorbis support, since it is almost impossible to use it with anything but Windows. Charging requires a running Windows system - not Mac, not Linux, not suspended - Windows with the screen open. Since it requires 5 hours for a full charge you end up running your computer overnight, so it takes a kilowatt hour of electricity to charge.
Summary: Over-all, the player is a smart design. A few glitches though, with the subscription service. Having trouble syncing music or audio books and flash games to the player. Dont know if its on my end, or a glitch in the player. The player is easy to navigate, easy to use, and is a lot more advanced than my old Dell player that I bought several years ago. It just isnt syncing well with the Urge subscription service.
Summary: 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.
Summary: I would highly recommend the IRiver Clix (1st generation as I haven't tried generation 2). After doing much research and discovering the IRiver was rated higher by CR magazine, I selected that one. It has a large viewing screen, great color, games, etc that I use frequently. I have noticed the games seem to drain the battery life a little more than the music. Battery life is still excellent.
Summary: This is, to my way of thinking, a top of the line device for carrying pictures, music, and books. But... and this is the biggest problem, books will only be accessible if you use the elongated method of scanning and if the book is longer than 18 hours it will scan back to 0. This means for a 21 hour book, you are forced to listen to the next three hours or to turn it off and never listen to anything but the book for the next three hours.
Summary: Although I had to order it with one day shipping, this mp4s' MUCH MORE BETTER THEN IPOD NANO. I have owned a Nano before, and IFP-890T mp3, so this is my second time using a products of Iriver. I RECOMMEND getting this mp4 rather then a Ipod Nano.
