Summary: I have an iFP-799, and man, it's a GREAT unit. Excellent sound quality, very solid construction, excellent battery life. With a firmware upgrade, you can even convert it into a stand-alone unit that hooks up like any old thumb drive. The down side is that it always requires power, and that it does not charge off of the wall... Come on though, if you can switch batteries, why would you need a charger anyways?
Summary: This item works very well for recording and playing back, and it's fabulous that you can record both FM radio and ambient sound with a mic. It works great for music demos, although a real piano can drown out your voice. But, if you want to actually hook it to a computer to send files back and forth, you might be in for a major headache.
Summary: I have two MP3 Players.....A Nano 4gb and the iRiver iFP-790. Hands down the iFP sounds better and louder. Slap a set of Shure E2c ear buds on your unit in it will blow your mind. The iFP battery hase better, navigation just to name a few. For example if you are in the middle of a run or workout and want to hear the song again it takes one button set a loop. No need to traverse the menu like the ipod. If you want to skip a song its one click.
Summary: This is the most awesome MP3 player. I am a certified cave diver and this unit works better than I could have ever expected. The sound is incredible and crystal clear. Can't see myself ever diving again without it. One of the best diving "toys" ever invented and I have one. If you get the chance try one and you will be hooked yourself. These people are geniuses for inventing this.
Summary: The I River is the best ever! You get the best of both Worlds. It's a MP3 and you can also listen to the radio. It also records and you can record from the radio. I bought mine and aftr using it bought 3 more for family members. The price is also a great deal.
Summary: Very dissapointed in this MP3 player. Buttons were confusing and would not work properly. Player would not turn off, only on. Broke completly after two weeks. Bought a cheaper brand to replace that works much better and function buttons are clear. I have bought several items that were refurbished and never had a problem, so was suprised to have a problem and couldn't return after only 20 days! Save your money.
Summary: I was a little scared at first for purchasing a used item. I thought that as soon as I would recieve it that the product might not work. But to my surprise it did work absolutely well. I am no techie person, I have a hard time working my satelliete tv, so I was scared that I might not understand the operation of using an MP3 player, but the instructions were very helpfull for a first time user and the ease of operation is good also.
Summary: I bought this 256MB MP3 player for my 11 yr old son as his first own music device. It sounds great and is easy to use. The FM reception is not very good, though, but we are approx. 40 miles outside of NYC, where broadcast signals come from. Overall very happy with this device.
