  • Excerpt: I LOVED my Iriver H120. I would never have parted with it and would never have bought another mp3 player ever but then sadly my other half charged it with what he thought was the correct charger but actually turned out to be the wrong voltage as it was the camcorder charger. Gutted! I loved it. I loved the fact that you didnt need itunes or windows media player or even iriver software to manage your music collection.

  • Excerpt: I have owned this player for many, many years now (I believe it was known as the iHP120 back when I bought it). It really is a quality player. It has a robust metal casing housing a 20GB hard-drive. That is plenty of storage to fit most people's music collection. It also couples as a great portable hard-disk drive.

It's an oldie, but definitely a goodie

  • Excerpt: I have owned this player for over 5 years now, and what an absolute cracker it has been. Yes, in this day and age of video players, MP4, wifi etc it has fallen way behind the pack leaders, even from iRiver's own output, but the fact that it is still going strong 5 years later with a battery that lasts and lasts (and lasts) is real credit to the great design and build of this device.

FLAC, Apple lossless, APE, WMA....................................................long long list.........A little bulky, not the fashion one now, however, the best MP3 I own ever.

  • Excerpt: Brought this back in jan 2005 from ebay. Simply amazed by its standard firmware functionality. Couldnt quite believe that it could record from an optical in source in different formats at first until I tried it. Remote is a saviour, suprised its ommited from so many new MP3 players?! Keep it well out of site this way. Sound quality is excellent via my Sennheiser PX100 headphones, and the Sennheiser earphones that come with it arent bad either!

Pushing the limits of the MP3 player format

  • Excerpt: I bought my H120 from Amazon and have not looked back since the day it arrived. So much is possible with this piece of machinery! I found that though it is bigger than the iPod, it still fits comfortably in my pocket. Indeed, one does not need to reach into the pocket to work it due to the intuitive remote control included in the package.
  • 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: This is an excellent mp3 player, from one of the best names on the market. The sound quality is excellent, and the display on the front of the player tells you what you need to know. It comes with various features, including the ability to record using an internal or external mic, or line-in feed. This means that, for example, you can convert your vinyl into mp3 format and burn them to CD, or leave them on your computer. The player can also recieve radio.
  • Pros: Reliable, good quality mp3 player
  • Cons: File layout may not be to everyones taste

  • Excerpt: I won't regurgitate everything else that has already been said, instead here is 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.
  • 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 software.
  • 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

  • Excerpt: I purchased the Apple ipod (yes, I mention that one too) as I needed a hard disk MP3 player and, after reading the many positive reviews on the unit, felt that this, albeit pricey, had to be the one to go for. I even got it engraved with the name of my mobile disco (how sad is that?) but, anyway, it worked beautifully with it's limited features but great quality sound (via the white earphones oooh, how trendy).
  • Pros: Crammed with useful features
  • Cons: Can NOT record from radio
