iRiver Clix

 

We hereby decree that every new media player should henceforth be equipped with an instant-on feature, like that of iRiver's Clix. You push the power button and—bam!—the Clix is up and running.

The Clix sounds great, and its 2.2-inch color display delivers spectacular image quality even when viewed off axis. The player supports Microsoft’s Plays For Sure music, so it’s compatible with a wide variety of subscription music services, but iRiver...

iriver clix Rhapsody

 

You may have read my recent review of the iriver clix gen 2 flash player. Less than two months after its release, iriver is offering an update, the clix Rhapsody, designed specifically to work with the Rhapsody music subscription service. Many of the...

Syncs with Rhapsody accounts for custom channel playback, purchase, and account info. Excellent user interface. Easy "direct click" navigation. Screen is bright and sharp. Flash games. FM radio/recorder. Voice recorder. Good sound quality.

Terrible earbuds. Volume controls seem to operate backwards. Can't use while recharging or loading. No shuffle or repeat modes.

This Rhapsody-optimized 4GB version of the second-generation clix from iriver is a feature-packed, beautifully designed flash player. If you're not married to iTunes, the clix is an excellent option, and it looks pretty damn cool, too. And if you are...

Clix 2ND Generation

 

The small, sleek Clix 2nd Generation from iRiver has pretty much everything you'd want in a flash-based media player, starting with a beautiful, easy-to-read display and good controls.

Beautiful AMOLED display Simple, intuitive controls

Easy to accidentally click controls

The Clix 2nd Generation is a fine player, with a great display and intuitive controls. Its storage space can't match that of a hard-disk-based player; but if you're looking for a light, portable, flash-based device, it makes an excellent choice

Lightweight, easy-to-use flash-based player has a nice display and fairly good sound.

iRiver Clix gen 2

 

Remember when the click wheels found on portable media players were innovative and unique? Yeah, now they're about as exciting as 3.5-inch floppies. Thankfully,

Click-screen navigation makes scrolling through menu fun (seriously!) über-slick user interface. Customizable SRS WOW HD settings for remarkably crisp audio, even at painfully loud volumes. Supports MP3, WMA, OGG, Audible books and some subscription...

Video software is PC-only and won't convert Quicktime movies. External buttons difficult to press. Drive gets formatted when switching from mass storage device mode to Windows-only MTP mode. Spotty music subscription support – consistently crashed...

The Clix offers an easy-to-read screen and a novel user interface.

High audio quality Supports many file formats

Lacks equalizer presets, Expensive

For a flash-based audio player, the Clix is a little pricey, but in return it offers a big screen and a generous amount of storage

iriver's 4GB Clix caught slumin' in special black

 

What's this, a press shot of the rumored 4GB "special black" Clix perhaps? Well, that's what Swedish site Min Hembio is reporting and if true, makes for a notable bump to that hotly reviewed Clix (U10). Expected in Sweden at the end of this month for...

A bright display and refreshingly simple controls make the Clix a serious contender.

Expert review by:

iriver Clix

 

The iriver Clix is a rebranded version of last year's iriver U10, which offered a groundbreaking new design in an overpriced package. The Clix is physically identical to its predecessor, but its interface has been overhauled, its performance improved,...

Cool-looking design. Very good sound quality. Lots of extras, including Flash video games. Long battery life

Click screen can be annoying to use. Nonremovable battery. No lossless compression or Audible.com support. No included video-conversion software. Video frame rate is only 15 fps

The Clix is a nice player that offers very good audio and photo quality, long battery life, and a host of extras.

iRiver Clix (2GB)

 

Early and late adopters, as well as design heads, will fall in love with the iRiver Clix's clean, futuristic look. The compact player measures 2.7 by 1.8 by 0.6 inches, weighs 2.5 ounces, and features a bright and colorful 2.2-inch display with...

Sleek and stylish, the iRiver Clix offers a unique, intuitive interface and comes with extras such as an FM radio; a voice recorder; an alarm clock; support for OGG files and subscription content; and photo, video, and text viewing. The Clix includes...

The iRiver Clix's ample screen is a magnet for fingerprints, and the cool and useful cradle is sold separately.

The iRiver Clix is a superbly designed MP3 player that's easy to use and packed with pretty much every feature in the book. If you're looking for a stylish Janus-compatible device and you don't need a boatload of storage, this is your player.

Product Specifications

With the second-generation clix, iriver delivers a versatile player that can be used with any PlaysForSure service to provide seamless downloading of videos and music from leading content providers including Rhapsody, Napster, EMusic and URGE. The redesigned iriver clix display is thinner and larger than its predecessor with a convex shape for a natural feel. The iriver clix is easily customizable to facilitate horizontal or vertical display on a vibrant 2.2" QVGA AMOLED (Active Matrix Organically Light Emitting Diode) screen, a new type of display that provides better video performance with a wider viewing angle than the previous LCD, with significantly reduced power drain on the battery. The second-generation clix was designed to be highly compatible with both Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) and Universal Mass Storage (UMS) operating modes. The MTP mode is for use with Windows XP (with Service Pack 1 or higher) and newer operating systems such as Windows Vista. The player can also be converted to UMS mode for compatibility with Windows 98 SE, Windows ME, and Windows 2000. The iriver clix works with both subscription and pay-per-song music services, providing for the widest variety of content available online. Among the other notable features of the new clix is improved FlashLite game support, with a variety of flash games pre-loaded on the player. In addition, the latest version of the clix device features even greater capabilities of FlashLite, such as FlashLite wallpaper and themes, enabling a new level of user personalization.
