Summary: I have had this for a couple of months and I love it. I was going to use it as a back-up (for traveling, etc.), but I ended up taking it with me everywhere. Pros: 1) Really nice screen, makes watching videos bearable. 2)SD slot 3)Great battery life-- I've watched an hour of video, then listened to music all day, and still had a charge. 4) You can flip the screen to use it left handed. 5) Although really quiet, the speakers are sometimes useful, and don't buzz or hum.
Summary: Intuitive, veresatile player (my version is the 8Gb player). I have a large collection of WMA files, so the Apple players were non-starters. Even without that, I would have chosen this because it has a removeable, replaceable Li-ion battery - a vast convenience when compared with the Apple approach. Pros: Clear 320x240 movies, which you can create with the supplied converter software. Picture viewer with zoom-in. Radio with presets. Voice recorder.
Summary: The iRiver X20 is a good buy. I bought it specifically because it offers line-in recording. I use it to record in MP3 from my home stereo. I have an extensive collection of old cassette tapes I plan to convert. I may convert my vinyl LPs as well. And some old reel to reels. I also like the FM radio. I recorded an internet radio station by connecting the headphone jack of the laptop to the line-in jack of the X20.
Summary: Pros: removable and therefore user-replaceable battery equipped with a memory card expansion slot has an FM tuner recording options, including line-in supports Ogg Vorbis and XviDs has a comparatively large screen built-in speakers reasonably priced Cons: control wheel is not so accurate like iPod touch weel no games

Excerpt: The iRiver x20 is a very reliable mp4 player. The sound quality is perfect and the material that it's made of is strong it can withstand minor shocks with out any problem. The screen is not intended for the owner to watch movies but for watching short clips is perfect a nice, clear image. It is easy to use and the mp3 player can be used as a flash memory stick.
Pros: good inage, good sound, resistent, easy to use
