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: 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
IRiver X20 A+quality, endless features, great value
6 December 2007
Summary: I bought the IRIVER because it has virtually every feature you would want in an MP3 player. 8 GB flash memory, quality display, FM radio, Line-in, Voice recorder, removable battery, built in speakers that are not exactly high-fidelity but are nice to have just the same, Micro SD expansion slot and solid, clear sound.
Excerpt: "...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. These are; expandable memory (micro SD card slot), line in socket, internal speaker, built-in mic. and recordable fm radio. Pros; Great sound quality, internal speaker, good screen, easy to navigate the menu and the abily to record fm radio. Cons; No playlists availible, poor quality ...
Pros: Great sound quality, internal speaker, good screen .
Pros: Price is excellent, Easy to transfer music, Has radio, Great with playing videos, Great size screen, Speakers!,
Cons: Screen smudged very easily!, Takes FOREVER to scroll through all my music, Don't have as many artists so no where near as bad, Can only convert videos with actualy program and that takes forever but minimizes the size because it only goes on a small screen so you can fit lots, Still can't figure out how to make a playlist,
Summary: Just wanted to add to my previous comment. Transferring video files is indeed slow but that is when you use the iRiver Plus 3 software. I believe this is because of the way it transcodes video files to make it 'compatible' with the player. I think this software needs a lot of improvement. A simple workaround would be to use a different transcoder and then transfer the files thru drag and drop. But in fairness to this software, transferring other files is ok.
