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.
Summary: this unit rocks, dont pay any attention to the bad reviews, the menu took me all of hmm...2 minutes to learn flat!! the earbuds are certainly good quality, only way to get better ones would be to buy a $40-$50 pair!!!

Summary: best micro hard drive player on the market in my opinion. i wouldnt buy anything from iriver though. they brag about how their products are updateable by firmware, but they release no firmware updates, also , when the battery goes in 2-3 years time iriver told me , after many many ignored e mails,...
Summary: Poor reliability. Poor interface and menu design. Poor button action. Poor documentation. VERY poor support. I don't normally write reviews on any product, but this one has disappointed me so terribly (not even in comparison to my Creative Lab Jukebox or my Apple iPod), that I wanted all to know to...
Summary: This product is a very good player with only a few minor flaws Pro's -Great battery life(@11 Hrs.) -Storage space for at least 30 cd's -Very small and light -Radio a very important feature lacking in the ipod -No included softare (just drag&drop from windows explorer) Cons's -No built in recorder...
Summary: My co-worker and I both bought one of these, and we love it. It is the perfect size to fit into the palm of my hand and is light as a feather. The pleather holder has a belt strap (downside-no buckle, u must undo belt to put on) and it also has the hook on top to attatch to a chain while in the gym.
Summary: I bought one of these last November for my son's 22nd birthday. He wasn't sure what to make of it, but as soon as he plugged the USB port into his computer and Windows Explorer came up, he "got" it. He was so enthused about it that I convinced by husband to get me one for Christmas.
Summary: I just got mine this week, and I like it a lot. It comes with a sweet case, which is basically the same as people put on their cell phones. Thin and black, doubt any scratches will get through.
Summary: I received this as a gift in Nov 03, loaded it up and used it four times before putting in a drawer for a month. Then I got it out and the hard drive had failed!! Just popped up with an error message of "Check HDD" and that's it. Emailed IRiver tech support, never heard from them.
