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.

Love it so far

V. Orcutt, Amazon

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.

I LOVE IT!

Anthony Campana, Amazon
23 February 2007
  • Summary: This is a terrific little pod. I'm very pleased with it. As with all Toshiba products I've owned, it's built well, looks good and does everything it's supposed to. The only hitch is using that awful Windows Media Player 11 as the sync software. I switched to Real Player to do my syncing and file maintenance, and it works great.

Great player, lacking accessories

D. J. Schwartz "purplestriker", Amazon

  • Summary: As a standalone product, this MP3 player is top notch, I'd choose if over the new 5.5 iPods. BUT: lack of accessories makes me almost wish I had gotten an iPod.

Move over, Apple!

Rajesh Jhunjhunwala, Amazon
27 January 2007
  • Summary: The Toshiba gigabeat is the best alternative to the iPod i have ever seen. One of the main things that is so great about it that the iPod completely fails to match is the Graphical User Interface (GUI). The iPod has very poor song organization while the Gigabeat uses Microsoft's Windows Media Center. Toshiba has mastered the art of software compatibility.

A great alternative

Sam Laney "Samtallic", Amazon
17 January 2007
  • Summary: The gigabeat turned out to be a wonderful alternative to the ipod for christmas giving this year. I'm really impressed with the storage space and capabilities of the player, especially considering how small it is, and the low price point. Only the forced Windows Media Player compatiblity holds it back from being the end-all be-all player in my opinion. But after frustratingly re-learning how to sync and add playlists through WMP, the whole system worked well.

Anti-iPod...

Teresa L. Rench, Amazon
3 December 2006
  • Summary: I really didn't want to buy an iPod because I use a subscription music service every day and wanted something that was compatible. Since I am paying a monthly fee for a subscription, I didn't want to also have to buy each song. The Gigabeat was one of the highly recommended devices for my subscription service. Not only does it play music very well, but as an additional bonus, I can download my Tivo recordings to it.
