MP3 Players


Recommended Posts

I got this one a few months ago.


Nothing but praise for it. No problems at all. Sounds great, long battery and YOU CAN replace it. Just gotta do it yourself.

Nice features are the remote control, support for ogg, and the easy to use usb drive. Plug and play in any xp system ( no drivers needed or re-boot just plug and go). Can store ANY kind of data. Very nice for moving files around from work and home.

They have a decent forum too for questions.

You can get one around $300 if you search the web. I got mine at pcmall.

They are coming out with a 40gig with jpeg support, full color screen this spring I may upgrade. I dont work there ( no spam )

Ipods are boring. They were just the first to do it. They have none of the extra features.

No Fm, No remote, No easy file transfer, No ogg, No firmware upgrades, No voice recording or direct file encoding, nothing really just a plain old mp3 player. Oh ya it has optical connections too for lighting fast transfers.

Plus the battery is only good for 6 hours in an Ipod vs 16 on the iRIVER.

Another thing about the Ipod was the way the dealt with the old battery issue.

NOT COOL. Just buy a new one. Thats it!

You can buy a battery for the iRIVER and stick it in yourself. Theres a tut link in the forum.

Plus the remote is very nice. Does everything the main unit does.

So you can stick the unit in your pocket and nobody ever sees it. Just the little remote that just looks like a cheap FM radio. You know if your worried about packing around an expensive piece of equiptment like that. Pretty easy to just snatch it off you.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
