Summary: My eleven-year-old sister found this iRiver and paid for the auction with her money; her big sister has an mp3 player, so naturally F. wanted one, too. The iRiver iFP-180T is a basic, straightforward player that also picks up FM frequency stations. 128mb can only store about 60 songs or so, but if you only have a few favorite artists or are willing to trade out music fairly often, that won't be a problem for you.
Summary: For an inexpensive, tough, light little mp3 player, this is a great choice. It doesn't hold all that many songs, but I can record a song playing on the radio to replay and ask my husband who sings it! Very handy for me. The FM tuner is great for what it picks up, but is somewhat limited in range. We're in the country, so the closest station is the one we'll hear. On the interstate, it has more range, but not what the Suburban picks up.
Summary: I have used my iRiver 180T for almost two years now. I use it mostly on the construction site. It is exposed to dust, sweat, vibration and just general hard use. My 15 year old son also uses it, and he manages to break almost everything. I like to use the MP3 player, but find the conversion of files to be somewhat laborious. But that is not a fault of the iRiver. Although take into consideration I am not much of a computer geek and some of this takes me several tries.
