Summary: I bought more than one of devices due to as I fix them & then sell them again as they are one of the best MP3 player / recorder I have ever heard! The main reason I like this device is because of the functions & the sound quailty it produces. I have tried many makes of MP3 players & none seem to come as close to the sound quality that this device produces.
Summary: Bought it used and really like it so far. It didn't come with a manual, so I'm still figuring things out. What I like about it: It records, with an internal mic or your own mic. It doesn't require any program to pull music from a computer - it acts as a hard drive, so I can download music anywhere. It has 40 gigs, plenty of room for all of my music, plus pictures. I don't think there is any device that can do all of these things this well.
dummies at iriver need to create a device with a capacity beyond 16 gig

Summary: Love Iriver. Make great stuff. Had an IPod and hated it. First person to return it in history. I have an archos 5 now. Doesn't shuffle. Drives me mad. Had a h320. LOved it but sent it to the Buzzard in Cali. I wish these guys would make something larger than 16 gig device. H340 doesn't play videos but that is what the computer is for.
Summary: it is an unbelievable Mp3 player ever you can find in market. I tried a lot of different player after died mine. ( HDD is broken after a lot of upload and download music on) .Right now I am trying to find right HDD for it. The quality of music is excellent .it is a little bit big to carry but gives you very nice sound especially with right speaker.
Summary: I'll get the bad out of the way. It's a bit outdated now since Itouch and other more sophisticated interface mp3 players are available and scrolling through the inventory can take some time until you get used to it. Still, this is a great piece of hardware. I've had mine for about 3 years and it's been fantastic on many levels. The sound quality is excellent. The screen is bright with clear bright colors and graphics.
Summary: Yes, the battery has definitely quit on me, but for it to last this long is quite a feat. This is a product of great quality. I've dropped it too many times to count, but the mp3 player still works perfectly. And as a few people have mentioned here, the sound quality is just GORGEOUS. Yes, it's bulky, but this was definitely the best buy when I first purchased it.
Summary: An amazing product. I have it for three years now. The sound quality both for recording and playing is excellent. Very reliable and solid. All features work fine and are quite useful. Changing the battery is relatively easy once you know how to proceed. I'll probably upgrade the hard drive to a 60G soon...
Summary: Yes, it is little bit thicker then other players but it is 40GB HDD, very nice bright screen and I think has the best sound from MP3 players. As somebody said before a little confusing navigation. I really like this player and recomend it.
