Excerpt: The iRiver iFP-180T offers MP3, FM tuner, and microphone functions in a compact 1.6-ounce device. The 1.1- by 3.8- by 1.0-inch player holds the standard 128MB of internal memory for storing MP3 and WMA formats but doesn't offer any way to add memory. With a prismlike shape, the iFP-180T is a break from the boxy MP3 players on the market now. Best of all, it remains simple without sacrificing usability.
Conclusion: The iFT are quite advanced models among compact players, though some of their features look superfluous. There are two really bad disadvantages: little memory and a high price - the iFP-180T will be available at approx. $200. At the same time, its direct competitor Cowon iAudio CW200 with the same memory size is $50 cheaper, and at $250 you can get the iAudio with 256 MB memory. What could we lose?
Conclusion: L’iFP-180T mérite vraiment l’appellation de baladeur. Tout petit, assez endurant, il lit toutes sortes de formats et permet même d’écouter la radio dans de bonnes conditions. Il peut donc se transporter dans n’importe quelle poche.
