Summary: An exelente has sound the headphones are fragile I am thinking q not saves about using this unit it(he,she) has exelentes options (1) you can use rechargeable batteries(sinks) they are mas economic and durables (2) the volume of the recording is automatic and has 5 options of sound recording (3) when you record it is possible to use the option of pause were you wrong?
Summary: iRiver's little AAA powered MP3 players always deliver amazing sound but the T60 is no different from the previous versions in the series: confusing operation and the joystick breaks. My T60's joystick control broke after less than a year of use. And as of July 3, 2009 someone on the market place is selling a 1 gb model for $200. $200? Seriously? This item is worth $50 tops.
Summary: I use this to listen to local radio at work, it is small and the sound is good. It replaces an iFP-890 which died finally, I found it easy to use and has a good sound.Folks, for [$], I challenge you to find something better.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Good Sound, Lots of Storage, Reliable Performance, Simple Controls, Sleek/Compact
Summary: My T60 sounded really nice but stopped working in 10 days. Contacted iRiver and they could not get it to work. Finally they said to return it to Amazon!!! It sounded great, can do FM radio recording like Tivo (record at a set time). Has built in Podcast app (podcast-ready) that works great but It eats batteries. It does not use power via USB when downloading songs/podcasts which drain batteries. The stock headphone are of poor quality.
Summary: I use this with a Mac- when the T60 is plugged into the USB2 outlet, it shows up as a drive on the desktop. Then I just drag MP3 files onto the drive, and right-click to remove them. AAC files are not supported, so anything from the iTunes Store will not play on this player. Also the player runs off the battery & not the bus when managing the files in this way (which can drain the batteries needlessly).
Pros: Affordable, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound, Reliable Performance, Simple Controls, Sleek/Compact
Summary: iRiver's designers are asleep at the switch, kinda literally. The sounds is bang on, iRiver's eternal strength. But the little push knobby control seems to randomly choose your intent. Did you really mean a push down or did you really mean a push up? I'm not sure what happened to the once mighty iRiver company. This is stuff that should have been weeded out by some field testing.
Summary: Iriver T60 reviewI use MP3 players mainly for listening to talk shows and occasionally for music. Talk shows may be up to 3 hours long. It is tedious and annoying to try to fast forward or reverse through a 3 hour file at a slow rate. If I inadvertently bump a control (I know, I should use the "lock" button) and skip to the next file, then I have to sit on the fast forward for a long time to get back to where I was.
Pros: Battery type selection, Can delete files, Easy To Set Up, FAST fast forward, No copy protection, Resume feature, Sleek/Compact, Standard AAA battery
Summary: I bought this mp3 player just to see if really iriver is the best brand in digital audio players for the sound quality.i recenly used Creative,Cowon,Apple but they didn't satisfied me for the sound quality issues.So i wanted to find out wht iRiver is so popular? When you play the music with the default eq you get a standart sound.But when you set the EQ to SRS WOW HD,and calibrate the options FOCUS,TRUBASS,WOW,DEFINITON you get an amazing Clear,powerfull sound from what...
Summary: I am very happy with this product now, but when I first started using it, I was pretty frustrated. I had not bothered to use the software CD that comes with the MP3 player, and so had not yet upgraded the firmware. Without the upgrade it takes forever to boot when you have lots of files on the unit. I had the first disc of Max Mclean reading the ESV Bible on my MP3 player - about 300 files taking up about 650MB.
Pros: Great Sound, Plays Ogg Vorbis, Reliable Performance, Simple Controls, Sleek/Compact, Takes a AAA battery, WMP Not Required
Cons: Can't do m3u playlists, Difficult to Set Up, Requires Firmware Upgrade
