Summary: This player does what it says it will do. It has some nice features, the sound quality is good and it was easy to use. The 128 megs holds just under 2 hours worth of songs and I usually take it with me on flights.
Summary: When I bought this a year ago, it was even more expensive than what now I got the T10 512MB for. T10 lasts longer, looks more fancy with colored body and colored LCD display. But for some reason, I like 180T even more. Sychronizing MP3 to T10 is a pain. The T10 went dead now and then when connected via USB to my IBM T40 laptop. Struggling for an hour, I got only three songs in.
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)), but this is the best series to own for flash players, unless you need higher then 512 megs. Now, read on, I'm not kissing Iriver's ass.
Switchs on player not durable (MTBF about 1-2 years)

Summary: I owned one of these units and it work quite well for about 16 months. Then the unit stopped working- as it was out of warranty and I could not get it repaired, I disassembled it (I am an Electrical Engineer). The system stopped working because the on/off switch fell off it's pc board- it was not glued or otherwise anchored in way to the card! The switch components are plastic and even moderate usage will produce fatigue that renders the unit useless in 1-2 years.
Summary: I have owned this mp3 palyer for over a year now and would like to say this - I am happy with it. There are a few problems but if you are willing to overlook those, then it's a great little product. Pros - Great Sound. Good battery life. Can store approximately 20-23 (128 kbps encoded) mp3 files. Plays .wma and .asf files too. Has built in equilizer settings and you can create your own eq settings as well. Backlit display is good.
Summary: (...). This is a great player for a first-time MP3 player buyer. The software was easy to operate and transfer music, once I realized I needed to push the USB cord into the player a little further than I had it. That cord is kind of touchy. Once it makes a connection you have to leave it alone or it will disconnect. Other than that, I've had no problems what so ever with hardware or software. The player is very light and is great for exercise.
Summary: This is my first MP3 player and I did not know what to expect. All I can say is "AWESOME"! It is very tiny, light weight and has great fidelity. The controls are a little intimidating at first, but are no problem once you go through the instructions a time or two. The earphones are fine, no need to throw these away like on so many other units. The FM works great. I am getting stations from 50-75 miles away. The FM sound quality is outstanding as is the MP3 player.
