Summary: this mp3 can do it all. it has a battery so if your on the road just pop another in dont have to recharge, it has a line in jack that records at a great quality and the mic can record audio well also. not to mention it is an mp3 that has a fm radio that allows you to record your latest songs or exclusive dj mix from ur favorite station, i had one of these ifp and a samsung fuse and an ipod, well ipod is just a status piece, the fuse is ok , but this blows them all away,...
Summary: No one has mentioned the recording capabities, that's what sold me on this one. I plug a stereo Rode NT4 mic directly into it and set it to record at 44Khz and 320kbps. It's a mini recording studio I can take anywhere.
Summary: This is very close to mine, I just don't have the radio and the buttons are along both sides. It has awesome sound compared to a CD player - the sound is stronger and the volume doesn't have to be half as loud. The Sound isn't fuzzy at all. Iriver is one of the best that you can buy - my parents saw a thing on TV and how they were talking about it being a "Top of the line" product. All I can say is that it has me sold as to how awesome it is.
Summary: when listening to FM radio can press one button to record songs if one of your favorites come on,also can reord songs without computer with line-out feature,can be used as an alarm clock,needs only ONE AA battery which last up to 40 hours,has many other great features but most of all sounds GREAT!!!!!!
Summary: Controls: This product is simple to control, despite many negative reviews I read about it. It takes some getting used to, and a little memorizing, but I got the hang of it pretty quick and I like that there are just a few buttons to do everything. I guess if you have a horrible memory, or you just plan on using it a couple times a year it would be hard to navigate thru the different menu's.
Excerpt: This is a very compact, light, good looking 1GB flash memory mp3 player. Having previously owned a hard disk player which broke, I decided to go for a flash player - i.e. no moving parts inside --> will be less likely to break. So far, despite having played sports (e.g. snowboarded) with my 799, it has had no problems. 1GB is plenty of space in my opinion - you could easily fit 10 albums on there. However, if you want, say, 20 or 40 GB you will need a hard disk player.
Pros: Small, good looking, briliant sound quality, good storage size for a flash player, good earphones, good features, durability, battery life - the whole package !
Cons: none - unless you want more than 1GB (go and look for a hard disk player in that case)
Summary: Baladeur numérique extremement compact et très complet au niveau des fonctionnalités, le i-river IFP 799 présente une qualité audio hors du commun qu'il est important de souligner. Il est également caractérisé par une des meilleure autonomie du marché (40 heures en lecture, en moyenne) et son poids est de seulement 39 grammes. C'est un des appareils les plus petits actuellement disponible, ce qui lui permet de se faire oublier dans la poche de la chemise.
