"Recommended MP3 Player"

I really wanted an MP3 player ever since the iPod became popular, and for a long time was saving up for an iPod itself before seeing the iRiver 120. It seemed to match the iPod in so many areas and also had a great battery life which I have found to be true to its word. The size of the hard drive is very good at 20 GB, and in fact although I have had it for six months I still haven't found the time to use up even 4GB of this space. I was also very impressed with the ease of use of the iRiver navigation buttons and it took me no longer than a good look at the manual and a couple of minutes and I felt I had been using it for ages! The iRiver looks very good in silver and is complemented by a good remote unit and I have no arguments with the case supplied. The headphones are the only thing I feel that particularly lets this MP3 Player down although they give a more than satisfactory performance. The database manager on the iRiver is a good feature although it took me a while to realise that the only file category the catalogue stores is MP3 making it only slightly harder to locate and playback the other supported file types which is extensive. The record function is also good and I shall certainly be using that function so I don't have to be awake in lectures at university later in the year! Overall I am completely chuffed with my iRiver MP3 Player and am very pleased I bought and furthermore would have no hesitations in recommending it to anybody else.
