Just have a suggestion about a couple quotes. In the support area there are two firmware updates, one for people who want to use the iRiver software and the other which turns the T into a large capacity USB storage device so it comes up as a hard drive in My Computer when connected. Certainly the output specs while ahead of MD’s are behind the more popular iPod and Zen. Software limitations and solution. Karma may be a good candidate for now but where is it? A player can have every feature in the world, but if the design doesn’t match your lifestyle or if the interface is impenetrable, you still won’t enjoy it.

It’s intuitive enough allowing you to copy from your hard drive to the player. Oct 6, at 4: My review of iRiver ifpT Pretty Fip-395t.

iriver iFP-395T

ifp-395r My first thought was to ivp-395t the iHP, one of the hard drive players with 20 gigs of music storage. Micro hard-drive players such as the TrekStor Vibez are becoming rare, but they still offer an appealing compromise between hard drive and Flash-based MP3 players.

Very good informative review. These devices are anything but one-size-fits-all. Yes, yes, you are of course right. Zen’s too humongus and iPod sounds too medicore. Slide scanning for ZAPP and other digital jury systems.

It would be so nice if iRiver could continue to make this model with bigger memory capacity like 8GB or 16GB.


Being as great as it is, it still can’t compete with the zen, new ihp and maybe not ipod as far as sound quality. Best of all, it is powered by one AA battery I use rechargeable AA batteries which is almost free in a long run so that you never have to worry ifp-395h the mp3 player will be no good after the built-in battery can no longer hold charges like most mp3 players on the market.

Originally posted by JaZZ But of course you know that there are two things a human needs: Very well-designed and well-built mp3 play er.

It has a built-in microphone for voice recording and a line-in jack for line-in recording or external microphone recording. You’ll want to look closely at performance; sound quality and battery life can make or break a player, especially if you travel a lot or have the so-called iffp-395t ears of an audiophile. You can blast your selected grooves and melodies at your desired volume as the iRiver iFPT music player features faithful audio fidelity.

Oct 5, at 7: Post 7 of It had been featured in the latest PC Magazine that came the other day. I just love mp3 players that powered by external AA batteries. They’re smaller and lighter than high-capacity players but still hold more tunes than flash-based models with the same price.

First, there’s the question of design. I’ll definately be upgrading to the new generation of USB2 capable flash players like Nomad Muvo2 mb 2 the shape needs to be slimmer.


A few of the best things stick out in my mind: I agree with your findings, and although I never had a flash player before, so can’t compare it to others, I’m very happy with irp-395t iFPT in every regard. But there is a work around on iRiver’s web site that isn’t intuitive to find. Get the UMS update here. IFPT seems mighty tempting!!

iRiver iFPT MP3 Player

Micro hard-drive-based players Straddling the line between full-size hard-drive-based MP3 players and compact, flash-based players, these models aim to give you the best of both worlds by using miniature hard drives about 1 inch or less in diameter with capacities of up to 12GB.

You get fewer megabytes per dollar than you do with a larger player, and these models have many of the same disadvantages of larger hard-drive-based units, including ifp-3995t moving parts that limit physical activity and nonremovable batteries that eventually wear fip-395t and need to be replaced.

The built-in radio tunner and radio recorder are great. Oct 6, at 8: Software limitations and solution iRiver’s software has a limitation. Post 9 of The sound quality is very good.
