Summary: This is a brilliant music player which competed with the erstwhile Ipod nano from Apple. It matches the nano well feature to feature and has additional features like a built in FM radio and a voice recorder. The brilliant intuitive UI makes it so easy to use for anyone. Have owned this product for 5 yrs now and still works like a charm with battery life >18 hrs on audio. All in all an awesome product and feel proud to be owning one.
Summary: There is absolutely no customer support! If you can not find what you need on their poorly designed website your outta luck. I emailed and call numerous times and no response. Got answering machine and left messages but no response. Buyer Beware!
Summary: I bought this player in Jan 08 because I was going to be working in the bush where there was no radio or TV (Gawd what is this world coming to?) Anyway, I plunked in 1200 songs and hit the road. Actually that's what the player kept doing. That was because I couldn't get a holder for the player and it kept falling out of my shirt pocket everytime I bent over. Here's the good: 1. The player is easy to use albeit it took a bit to get used to.
Summary: I bought this mp3 player for my wife. I'm more a fan of the Cowon D2 , but for her, this player was perfect. The player is surprisingly small, about the size of a credit card, and a third of an inch thick. It is small enough that my wife can hold it with one hand and still use the controls. This is really useful for when she rides the El and needs one hand to hold on. The best feature of the player is definitely the interface.
iPod killer? iPods are not even in the same league.

Summary: Have had (1) Creative Zen 20GB (the early version with metal casing): Crystal clear sound, solid bass (not your artificial upper base boom). A 5-foot drop unto concrete killed the hard drive. (2) Creative Zen Micro 4GB: a step-down in sound quality from its older brother. Headphone jack's internal wiring came lose after about 9 mo. Lost a channel. (3) iPod Nano 4GB: Worst sound among the three, but, hey, my wife got it as a gift, and she doesn't use it.
Summary: I've had the Iriver Clix for several months now and the sound is amazing. I've had an H10 prior to this player which was stolen from me and personally I think Iriver has the best sound quality of any mp3 player. That's saying a lot when you consider the fact that mp3 files are compressed anyway. Some sound quality is being lossed simply because information is being stripped during the compression process.
Summary: I love my Iriver Clix2! Here's what I love most about it: - plays ogg vorbis (fully compatible with tags and all); thus you can fit more high-quality music onto the player; with a mix of ogg and mp3 files, I've got it nearly full with about 130 hours of music - no touch screen, so I can easily work it in my pocket, or while I'm driving (i.e.
Summary: The reviews on the Clix2 were great, so I bought one "sight-unseen". Big mistake. After the first Amazon recommended seller failed to have any in stock (despite being listed as such) I managed to get one through JetAudio, another Amazon recommended seller. Their shipping was slow and expensive (USPS turned out to be much cheaper and faster, see below), which is surprising for a business based on shipping things online.
