Summary: Every month, manufacturers unleash even more MP3 players to an increasingly confused public. Not only do these devices have wildly divergent features, but ongoing format wars mean the MP3 player you choose dictates where you can buy your digital music. These devices are anything but one-size-fits-all. First, there's the question of design.
Pros: great sound quality, can clip it right to my belt, the fm tuner is very nice for when i am working out and want to listen the tv's in the gym that are hooked up that way. one of the best things is that you don't need to install any software to transfer so
Cons: smaller storage capacity but it's not too bad, a few menus are kind of confusing (ex. repeat mode) and the manual doesn't explain them very well
Summary: When I got this is Jan 04, I had to replace it once a month for 4 months various electronic reasons. Hard drive crash, electronic issues, etc. Customer service is a bit of a nightmare. They are a small company here (bigger in Japan), and it shows. I think one of the issues is the player has some conflicts with Macs. While they say they are compatible, sometimes it has issues moving file, and that resulted in two of the four crashed with my system.
Pros: great features, sound, storage capacity, and price
Cons: Horribly unreliable. Hard drive keeps breaking. We return it to iriver, they send us a new one and the harddrive breaks again. We are currently on our third IGP-100 and it was shipped to our house broken. We are not abusing the device. It usually bre
Pros: Even if it holds less than an iPod mini, I don't think I even know a thousand songs that I'd want with me all the time. The iRiver iGP holds more than one hundred songs, and that's all I need. It's also very reliable and sturdy. I can go jogging with it i
Cons: I went through two of these babaies. Neither of them ever was recognized as an external drive by my computer. iRiver's conclusion was a bad harddrive, whcih means two bad harddrives in two weeks. Skip it!
