iRiver PMC-120 review


Intro In the past few years, Korea-based iRiver has been a contender in virtually all portable media categories, including flash, microdrive, and hard drive-based MP3 players, as well as portable video players (PVPs). In fact, it's the only company in...

Responsive processor; ergonomic; removable battery; intuitive Windows Mobile operating system; impressive integration with Windows Media Player 10.0 and Windows XP Media Center Edition (MCE); built-in kickstand; decent battery life.

Poor built-in speaker; pricey; no recording capability; no programmable preset buttons; no higher-capacity option; as with all PMCs, you can't create video playlists.

Although the PMC-120 is a much better device than its Linux-based brother, the PMP-120, it's not the best Portable Media Center device available.

iRiver PMP-120 (20GB) review: iRiver PMP-120 (20GB)


iRiver PMP-120 Personal video players (PVPs) have become segmented into two camps: those that run Microsoft's Portable Media Center (PMC) operating system, and those that don't. Witness iRiver's PMP-120, which has a nearly identical PMC sibling, the...

Decent screen; built-in kickstand; includes a voice recorder, a line-in audio recorder, and an FM tuner; stylish carrying case; removable battery.

Doesn't record video; doesn't play DRM-protected WMA or WMV files; confusing controls and interface; below-average battery life; won't sync with desktop music managers.

With its maddening interface, its missing features, and a lack of video content sources, the PMP-120 needs to go back to the drawing board.

iRiver PMC-120


The iRiver PMC-120 is a solid start in the PMC market.

Included kickstand for video watching. Proprietary base connector cable included.

Not quite as well-developed as the Creative Zen PMC. Output quality to TV is less than desirable.

The Techie's Player


This device isn't as pretty or easy to use as the Apple iPod, but when it comes to features, the iRiver iHP-120 delivers. The 20GB player offers an FM radio tuner, optical in and out jacks, and more than twice the battery life of the iPodfor the same...

Small Player, Big Features

iRiver H120 (20GB) review: iRiver H120 (20GB)


Analog and digital optical inputs/outputs; 20GB hard drive; line-in and voice recording; in-line remote with LCD; long battery life; FM tuner; high-resolution display; line out can be used as a second headphone jack.

Display text is small; slow scrolling; slight learning curve; limited Mac compatibility.

Feature-hungry music fans will find their appetites whetted by this supercharged, high-capacity portable music machine.

iPod wants to know who stole its thunder.

As always, iRiver installed a massive menu system. There are plenty of knobs to turn. Check it:
