Pushing the limits of the MP3 player format

  • Excerpt: "...where Apple falls behind iRiver - It is easy to believe that Apple's machine is more fun, as it has so many accessories available for purchase - what one realises in buying the iRiver is that equivalents of most of the accessories available for the iPod are *already included* with the iRiver H120, thus increasing the already significant price margin between the iPod and the iRiver: I bought my H120 for £199. An equivalent iPod with 20 gigs of HD ...
  • Pros: Practically anything is possible !  (as far as recording/playing music is concerned)
  • Cons: Some may find the H120 hard to use

iRiver H120

  • Excerpt: "...default file system for the iRiver is layed out in files and folders, exactly as you would view them on a computer. This can be changed using firmware downloaded from the iRiver website, or various unofficial websites. Overall, this is an excellent choice for an mp3 player. It is more expensive than some, such as the Creative range, but the price rise is well worth the quality and excellent controls. ...
  • Pros: Reliable, good quality mp3 player
  • Cons: File layout may not be to everyones taste

  • Excerpt: "...what I have to add: The Iriver has many things going for it. As other users have mentioned, it does several things that the IPod cannot. The sound quality is good (although not as good as some later models, and the earphones are not brilliant that come with it). It is easy to use, most problems are solved in the manual. You could typically (although it depends on file size) fit around 5000 songs on this beast. Sizewise, it is portable and ...
  • Pros: Fairly easy to use and navigate songs, high storage capacity, good sound quality
  • Cons: Likely to break if used while exercising or in damp conditions as I found out .  This is the problem of HardDisk players in general

The official iPod Killer!!!

  • Excerpt: "Move over Apple, the iRiver is the 'must-have' MP3 player now! Here are the main points why. 1) Build quality, The iRiver is constructed of solid magnesium with polished chrome ends. The iPod is delicate white plastic with a thin silver veneer that scratches easily. 2) Simple drag-and-drop. To load songs onto the iriver, simply drag-and-drop to the iRiver's hard drive in My Computer. To load songs onto the iPod, you must use the clunky iTunes ...
  • Pros: Sleek metal body, superb sound quality, a wealth of recording and playback options, simple drag - and - drop interface and lots more too many to list here .
  • Cons: Nothing whatsoever

iRiver beats all ... hands down

16 September 2004
  • Excerpt: "...a magazine review about the iRiver unit which featured more disk space and an FM radio. Oh, and it had an internal and external microphone along with the ability to record live and directly to the hard disk drive. This just had to be the one to go for now. I abandoned my ipod after listening to the sound quality of the iRiver unit. I actually use the white earphones with the iRiver now as they are better quality ear phones. You can load ...
  • Pros: Crammed with useful features
  • Cons: Can NOT record from radio

A superb multi-function personal music player.

  • Excerpt: "...songs. DESIGN & BUILD First off, the IRiver HP-120 is about 6cm wide, 3cm deep, and 12cm long, without the carry case. This is slightly larger than Apple's iPod, but I have never had any problems with fitting it into a pocket. The unit is very stylish, and feels very well made. The buttons are solid and the screen is large, which after 3 months of use, remains scratch-free (this is due to the superb padded leather carry case, which is a style ...
  • Pros: High capacity, Excellent sound quality, Easy menu navigation .
  • Cons: No on - the - go playlists .

iRiver HD 20 Gig

26 July 2004
  • Excerpt: "...net I discovered that the iriver got much better reviews. I needed a portable hard drive which I could record lectures and interviews on as well as storing data. The mp3 player is just a nice extra for me. Unlike the ipod, the iriver has external and internal mics included in the price plus it has fm radio which you can record (why?). The whole thing is very simple, just plug and play. It crashed once on me a few days after I bought it but ...
  • Pros: records audio and radio, external and internal mic, good design, updates available from website
  • Cons: internal mic picks up whirring noise of iriver itself

  • Excerpt: "...the firmware available from the iRiver website as soon as you receive your unit. I understand from browsing on the web that there were glitches with earlier versions. The only very minor concerns that I have is firstly with the control joystick. I do find it a little awkward to use at times, but then that could be my sausage fingers. This is obviously a personal thing and I'm sure that there are many others who find the joystick immensley usable. ...
  • Pros: Features
  • Cons: None that I can think of

  • Excerpt: "...for this memory storage, this Iriver was the best. I then went on their website in America to check the prices there. I discovered their latest mp3 player, the IHP-120 which is actually a hard drive (20GB), with radio and voice recorder for about £250. That’s where it all began. Some little stars appeared in my eyes and I then thought, “I want one”. My girlfriend got jealous, and she got one as well. Their latest now is the IHP140 which is ...
