IRiver IFP-195T

IFP-195T Mp3 Player

 

This small flash-based player is shaped like a prism with rounded edges and has 512MB of storage (enough to hold about 130 average MP3 files at 4MB each). The IFP-195T also sports straightforward controls and has a built-in FM tuner and voice recorder....

iRiver iFP-195T (512 MB) MP3 Player

 

Kids eat batteries, especially AA and AAA batteries. Never mind trying to get them to use rechargeables (they’re dead, I need juice now). I have enough trouble trying to understand teenage fashions and social issues. Since my constant complaints ...

Memory size, easily operated, excellent sound quality

Old USB port (1.1 VS 2.0), pricey

AWESOME MP3 player from IRiver

 

What can I say about this item? Half gig of storage, built in mic for voice recording, line jack for direct MP3 coding plus a FM tuner and you can record what is playing on the tuner. All this for 299.99. Now for some history. I was looking for ...
