Summary: I give this company 5 stars for their excellent customer service. The product I recieved did not hold its charge and digideals was extremely prompt and professional in the way they handled and responded to my concerns. Their customer service representatives very responsive and helpful and issued a full refund.
Summary: the Toshiba Gigabeat F series have terrible firmware, but when you install Rockbox firmware from rockbox.org then this its quite great. The Gigabeat then becomes a tiny little linux running computer and can do many things as well as play music and videos.
Summary: I'm so sick and tired of hearing about apple products so I wanted something different! I bought this player for my wife and is the Greatest player I've used so far! It's stylish, easy to manage, and after 3 years of ownership I can tell you it still kicks i-pod's .....!!!
Summary: This is my second toshiba gigabeat, and as the last one, I love it. Not only is it a great MP3 player, but it can act as a portable HD. So if there is music I have on it that I want to put on my laptop or my work computer, then I can, not like an ipod, where you are a slave to their rules. Toshiba and Windows Media Player make music that much easier to enjoy!
Summary: I just got a toshiba gigabeat F20. it is awesome. the screen is big, the controls take a little getting used to but are awesome. the plus sign control completly beats the iPod click wheel. its software is alright but i kinda hard to use. but who cares?! once you figure it out, its a piece of cake. wonderful mp3 player. i cant find anything wrong with it except that lack of features. no fm radio, no voice recorder, no line out.. but its good anyways.
Aplha prototype sold as real product, with surly inept tech support

Summary: I will never buy any product from Toshiba ever again. I have two gigabeats (one for me one for s.o.), well now I have one because the other has completely ceased to function. I obviously bought them at the same time because no one would get a second once you've seen these. These are shoddy untested prototypes sold as working models, for example: if you ever let the battery charge run fully out, it forgets what time it is and has to have the time painstakingly reset, and...
Summary: I recently purchased the 20 gig Toshiba gigabeat and I have to say that I am very happy with it so far. This is my first mp3 player since owning the orginal Nomad from Creative Labs. Wow! Quite a step up. The Gigabeat is very stylish and has an amazing screen for its size. The ability to use it as a hard drive is a definite plus. The player capabilities are more than adequate with plenty of different EQ settings that I haven't even touched yet.
Summary: The price, sound/image quality, and portability of this player are all great. The gigabeat is a good size and tough enough (mine has survived a few drops on concrete w/out huge scratches). The quality of the sound is very good--lag time is also minimal. Pictures look awesome on the large screen. The touch pad control takes some getting used to, but works well enough. The interface with the computer and software, however, are terrible.
