If you need easy and reliable then buy the Iriver MP3 player
10 August 2011
Summary: I purchase the Irivier to replace the one I own that was damagedand could not be repaired. This mp3 player is the better than the one it replaced. The updated capibility for down loading music is so easy a cave man could do it.
Summary: i had one of these players before and I only got this one because I lost my original on a trip this player is small, reliable, and useful for many things other than just listening to music. it is also a good voice recorder and a mp3 encoder.
Summary: this is a great mp3 player its only downfall is that it doesnt have a very long battery life of about 24 hours but it is bearable dont let that stop you from buying the product though its great for storing mp3 files and the voice recorder is a nice touch i also like the fm recorder and recorder it also has a radio for a change of pace great for jogging or wieghtlifting if you do use it for jogging or lifting i suggest the sport armband a great all around product
Summary: I originally purchased this item because I only needed the armband case (I already owned this exact MP3 Player, cut did not have that). I was rather pleased to get an extra MP3 player (which I was able to give as a gift), however, was slightly disappointed to not get headphones. But that was an easy purchase from the local Target.
Summary: I bought mine in April 2004 and it broke just today (5 Dec 06). Not bad, but I wish it lasted longer. Turns out that inside the device, the power connector broke off the circuit board. Now it is out of warranty, and I'm trying to find a replacement. But it has been GREAT for recording lectures at school, and 256mb is plenty for that. Not good for music so much because you can only fit like 2 songs on it. Kidding. It was also great because it was so light!
Summary: i love this player but take note: it does have a design flaw with the three side buttons. if they are abused they will break and you won't be able to power on the unit. if you want something to be small, durable and loaded with features then expect to pay over 300.00, not 30.00. this is an excellent device but it must not be treated like a toy. how many mp3 players are this small, use only one AA battery, and can record via mic or line input. the list is small.
Summary: This model is a real dud. Most of what you see on ebay are broken units that will not power on. The problem is the on/off switch which breaks off the circuit board. I got stuck with a DOA purchase that was described as "lightly used.
Summary: I love this mp3 player. The only problem I had with it was the fact that I am an iTunes user and it does not play mp4--they have to be converted into mp3 and then put on it. I currently own a iPod Shuffle and what I miss about the iRiver is all it's features (timer, equalizer, customizable and lit display, FM receiver, voice record, line-in record, and so on).
Excerpt: Este fué mi primer MP3, parece que hasta ha subido de precio. lo mejor de este MP3 es la radio y la grabadora de voz, de radio y de entrada.

Excerpt: Los disc-man había sido un boom antes de los mp3. En el momento en que todo el mundo compró su primer mp3 yo me sumé tambien al boom. Y acerté. Es un mp3 pequeño y ligero que cabe en cualquier bolsillo de chaqueta(por eso creo que es bueno para mujeres), se escucha maravillosamente, ya que los bajos tienen un sonido estupendo. Respecto a las contras, no le encuentro demasiadas.
