Summary: I've owned this player, the IFP 180t, for 2 years now (READ: Since it came out), and I dunno what the problem is with the other people (Maybe they truly have problems with their players, or maybe they just own IPODS(Try viewing other mp3 player 'reviews' for an idea of how hardcore ipod users are)),...
Summary: I have had this player for more than three years now, and I have never had any sort of problem whatsoever. This is an excellent player; the buttons and joystick are solid and sure so you are always positive that you are pushing them correctly.
Summary: great mp3 player! lots of controls and functions. the manual tells you all that you need to learn. its very lightweight too. the battery cover is a little flimsy, as when something knocks into it, in my pocket, the cover slides out.
Summary: I have owned this player for 3 years now, and I can honestly say that it is the best piece of equipment I have ever owned. The interface is simple and intuitive, and everything works perfectly. The player and the controls all feel solid and well made, and only the shiny end pieces feel plasticky.
Summary: I bought this product one month ago and it used to be good. HOWEVER, the problem happpend exactly one month after the purchase. The FM tuner, for some unkown reason, didn't work suddenly. No radio, no signal but just noise. (The other part seemed fine.
Summary: This player is super fantastic, once you know how to operate it. It's my second player (1st one another brand) and of course I thought I could immediately "work it", but you must read the book first if you're new to mp3 like me.
Summary: I've used this little player for well over a year, almost exclusively for frequent jogging. Overall I'm pleased. Some good things: 1) Battery life is better than other players I've used, and volume can go plenty loud for one AA battery. I estimate I change the battery every 10-15 hours of use.
Summary: This unit lasted about 3 months before it abruptly stopped working. Kudos to iRiver for replacing it with no questions asked, however the replacement unit broke after 2 months. The power button simply stopped working.
Summary: My 8-yr-old daughter and I share this little iriver. It is perfect for our needs. It holds about 65 songs--sound quality is great--it's super easy to add and delect songs. Our files are easily managed using iriver's manager.
