iRiver X20 MP3 Player

melonb1089, Ebay
9 February 2008
  • 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.

iRiver X20 (8 GB) MP3 Player and Recorder

vbrown330, Ebay
15 January 2008
  • 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.

iRiver X20

  • Summary: Needed to replace my battered RIO Carbon. Thought I would get a Creative Zen but product felt clunky and not very durable. Passing through Hong Kong found this gem. Easy to use, small enough to slip into a pocket and sound quality (albeit with non-Iriver headphones) excellent. WMA file format ideal as straight transfer from RIO. Does not feel as if it has the same tough quality as the RIO, but nonetheless a worthy successor. Extra 3Gb space welcome.
  • Pros: WMA format, not an IPOD, sound quality (with Sennheiser headphones), ease of use
  • Cons: No AC charger supplied with player. Not able to find a maufacturer website that has any info on product and accessories!

Iriver X20 4GB

  • Excerpt: Sound Quality Excellent Ease of Use Simple - too simple, needs a little more choices on the menu. Look & Design - looks like an average phone!, not very classy. Range of Features Excellent but....... Value for Money - depends on where and how you buy it really. Advantages: record fm radio, play videos, micro sd expnasion port. Disadvantages: will not handle Apple aac files which rules out 95% of my library.
  • Pros: micro sd card slot, fm radio, volume, videos
  • Cons: main control dial, menus, equaliser, Apple unfriendly (no AAC support)

  • Excerpt: This is a great product, I chose it as two of my previous mp3 players had faults. I looked for an mp3 player with a decent sized screen, a good quality screen, a simple to navigate menu, an fm radio and most importantly, good sound quality. The iriver x20 has all of those and much more. These extra features would certainly be ones that I would look for in another mp3 player.
  • Pros: Great sound quality, internal speaker, good screen .
  • Cons: No playlists availible, poor quality headphones, scroll wheel atracts dust

My new friend

Achtel, Ciao

  • Excerpt: When facing the idea that I would spend most of the upcoming 5-6 weeks in the library to prepare my final exams, I decided I needed some sort of incentive to stay motivated. Since I still hadn't bought an mp3-player (I know, but I never really felt I needed one...) I figured it was time to do so.
  • Pros: stylish design, SD card slot, changeable battery, long battery life
  • Cons: not many accessories (yet), can't delete or edit files directly from player
