Best player for spoken word, music's good too though

Summary: If you copy the files in one-at-a-time from your computer, they will play in that order. You can set it to pause for up to an hour. It's tiny, fits in the front pocket. I can download youtube videos, convert to mp3, and listen all day long with lots of pauses and not start over.
Not perfect, but it's convenient and takes a beating

Summary: I've had my T30 for two years, and it's still playing. I had no trouble setting it up, really, just a plug and play or plug and upload and I've got plenty of music for a bike trip or a long hike. And when I'm tired of the selections, I just erase what I don't want and download new selections.
Summary: Update on 05/12/08: I bought 2 players for the church to do sermon recording. Everything is good except the power consumption. It doesn't matter whether I use regular Alkaine batteries or the high power (NimH?) rechargable batteries.
Summary: Good little player with excellent sound. Easy to navigate. A little different to upload files to it since it isn't really treated as a flash drive (doesn't display remaining drive space if using drag and drop in "My Computer". A little on the spendy side but a solid little player.
Summary: I've had my T30 for about 3 years now. I love the sound quality! It's the best I have ever found in a player of this size. I've tried the SanDisk c150 and another no-name brand which neither could equal the sound quality here.
Summary: PROS: The T30 makes a great voice recorder. The mic and line-in sources both produce quality results. Both WMP and explorer modes are supported (with firmware change) CONS: WMP mode is slow with WMP11 Menu navigation takes some time to learn
Summary: i purchased this device about 6 months ago for one thing: recording. you can plug any music source into the jack and record for up to 3 hours at 320k. i dabble in DJing and i can take an RCA to Stereo mini Y-plug directly from the mixer into the T30, bypass the computer, bypass any other...
Summary: The iRiver T 30 1 gig mp3 player combines great sound with small size and large storage. It comes with Windows Media Player 10 and no other software . At first the tranfer procedure was a bit confusing since the onboard firmware deletes any files you have as you add new files .
Summary: I got this little player several months ago and was a little worried about a few of the reviews I read here. While its true it eats batteries like crazy and doesn't hold as much music as stated, it still holds quite a bit!
