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: 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).
