toshiba support Rating should be 1 star

Palmetto girl "Palmettogirl39", Amazon
29 December 2008
  • Summary: My entire family has IPOD's and I chose to go with Toshiba gigabeat. Up to now I have been happy with it other than the battery life is not very good. The battery will die even if you aren't using the gigabeat. My biggest problem is finding Toshiba support for this model. I called an 800 number given to me by another toshiba division and was told that they don't support the older models.

Great - when it worked

C. Davis, Amazon
21 August 2008
  • Summary: I had this player for a year and a half. I loved it when it worked. Easy to use, great sound. I loved that it worked with Windows Media Player. Probably less that 9 months after I had it, the player quit - dead. Since it was still under warranty, I sent the player in. I think Toshiba just sent me a refurbished player that they swapped the serial number on. When I got the player back the serial number sticker wasn't even completely stuck on the player.

True Ipod Killer

Sanjay Shankar, Amazon
28 September 2007
  • Summary: Micrsoft might have pulled the plug on Personal media center by going the Zune route, but this device is a nice implementation of PMC. I have an ipod and I bought this for my sister as a present and spent a few weeks loading music and testing it out. It beats the ipod classic on many fronts. It was $50 cheaper for the same capacity (30 GB). Dedicated controls beat the wheel any day. I know the wheel feels cool for exactly 1 week, after that its a pain.

High Quality, Battery Problems Fixable

F. Adamek, Amazon
20 September 2007
  • Summary: Before purchasing this product I did some research on it, and heard it was a high quality product but that the batteries sometimes lasted only about 4 hours. I ordered my own and am very pleased with the device. Everything works well, nice interface, and I was extremely impressed by the resolution of the screen. The primary reason I am writing my own review however is my issue with the battery.

Great idea, terrible performance

1918NOT, Amazon
2 September 2007
  • Summary: First, let me start with the things I really DO like about the GB30. The user's interface is simple, the graphics are crisp, and it is ridiculously intuitive to manage and transfer music as a Napster Ready-to-Go device. However, the battery performance is pitiful. After 10 days (painfully aware that I am outside the window to return this for a refund from my seller), the battery would drain despite the fact that the unit was turned off.

six hour battery life for audio

Aaron Breer, Amazon
31 May 2007
  • Summary: I've had this gigabeat for several months now and I'm very happy with it. The battery life is about what I expected. Every manufacturer out there lies about the battery life so I knew what I was getting into. My previous MP3 player a Creative Zen Micro 5 gb got four hours of battery life and they claimed something like 16 hours. I get six hours of battery life for the gigabeat for audio no matter what I do.

Great portable media player!

L. Caldwell, Amazon
22 May 2007
  • Summary: This little portable device gave me just what I wanted...something I could carry on a plane or in a car and watch a movie of my choice. I've had as many as 23 movies downloaded at a time...along with about 1,000 songs--and I still had plenty of room on the device. It fits in my purse and is just slightly bigger than my Motorola RAZR. Even though I bought a clear case with built in stand for it, it doesn't stand up at an angle very well, but that's a small inconvenience.

Love it so far

V. Orcutt, Amazon
21 April 2007
  • Summary: After being introduced to the Gigabeat by a family friend, I read a lot of customer reviews since I did want to replace my 2 Gb Apple iPod with something a little larger, and decided to go for the MES30VW, which I've had for a little over a week now. It literally does everything, although I haven't yet tried to download videos but will soon...anyway, on to the features...

awesome player

KaGe, Amazon
19 April 2007
  • Summary: i just bought the mes30vw after trying out a friends mes60vw over the weekend. I was impressed by the overall form factor of the thing and mostly for the disk space to price ratio!! i'm surprised these aren't selling more... one of the main reasons i went for this was that "everyone else has an ipod" and this one is much better on the disk space: i can fit my entire collection in 30gigs + photos + a video or two depending on what i'm in the mood for.

Terrific

Overstock
1 April 2007
  • Summary: This is a terrific item, easy to use and a bright screen. Holds a pretty long charge. Only thing I wish is that there were more accessories available. It seems Ipod has cornered the market on accessories.
