Summary: I've owned the iriver 140 for a couple of years now and would buy it again without a second thought. The battery really does last 16 hours (or very(!) close to it), managing the files on the disk is no more difficult than managing files on your hard disk, and you can store anything on the device...
A great device; and yep, the battery is user replaceable

Summary: Have had this player for a good stretch of time and it is my gym-in-a-pocket, not to mention provider of much sanity at work, while flying, in the car, etc. One of the best electronic purchases I've made, and it's only too bad that iRiver never gave it all the continuing support it deserved and...
Summary: Almost perfect. ipod comes nowhere close. I mean really, this thing RECORDS. Cons: The joystick design is really dumb. Doesn't have gapless playback, but this will hopefully be available in a firmware upgrade. For all you people having trouble with the menus- geez, what the heck do you want?
Summary: I couldn't be more delighted with this player. Upon receiving it, I opened the package, connected the AC Adapter, and connected the included USB 2.0 cable. WindowsXP immediately recognized the player as an external drive. I flashed the BIOS, and then started copying files.
Summary: 40 gigs is a lot. not only coes my iRiver carry all the music i have ever owned. it also carries movies, pictures, school documents etc etc. it really nice to be able to pick up the player at a friend's place and start watching some movie... it supports ogg.
Summary: I have been using IHP 140 for 3 months now. It is excellent. There were no issues with installation and start using the device. Initially did not install any of the software that came with it. And everything worked fine.
Summary: Bought my iHP-140 in June after extensive research on the various competing products. Great battery life, and the support of Ogg Vorbis files was big for me. The record function is a nice feature, although I haven't used it that often, but mainly I wanted something to listen to on my bus commute and...
Summary: Have owned this unit for approximately a month. Battery life hasn't yet reached the slated 16 hours, but doesn't fall short by much - can squeeze 12-13 hours out of it with intermittent backlight and lots of manual changing tracks in between.
Summary: I have looked at many mp3 players over the past 6 months and the IHP-140 has everything I was looking for and more. The 18 hour battery life is the main reason I bought this mp3 player but the FM tunner is also nice feature I wanted. The sound quality on this mp3 player is awesome.
