iriver P7


iriver has made some excellent and innovative portable media players, like the Clix, and some disappointments, like the E100. The new P7 falls somewhere in between. Offered in the United States in capacities of 8GB ($179.99 list) and 16GB ($209.99),...

Sleek, minimal design. Large screen. MicroSD slot for storage expansion. Supports several audio, video, and photo file types. Includes voice and FM recorder

Touch screen requires stylus for optimal performance. Large for a low-capacity player. No Web access ; Watch the iriver P7

The iriver P7 is all about "buts": It's the size of a hard disk-based media player, but is slim on built-in memory, and there's no Web access. And the sprawling 4.3-inch screen is great for movies, but you'll need a stylus for navigation.

iriver P7 unboxing and review


We've been getting friendly with iriver's latest touchscreen masterpiece over the past few days, and have a few impressions to share. In many ways, though, the P7 is exactly what the pictures and spec sheet make it out to be: great design, great specs,...

Review Of Iriver P7 8GB silver MP3 Player


The world has changed and so are the tendency and the business of the people. Previously, people were having time for all the social works and also for the people of the society but these days there are so many cases where the people are not even...

Iriver P7 is the visual revolution of the world that has got various features that can rock your life!! The video player is portable and also it has got the finest features of music, video and also the text recorder

The P7 is a portable device but still it has got some of the problems in handling that makes the device inflexible. The function of touch screen is quite weird. The PC software is not of use and there is no use of it

:The video player is one of the most valuable and device but the efficiency is too low and the sped is affected by it. Still, whatever features are appeared are the best comparing to the prices.

Review: iriver P7


When the iriver P7 was first announced at CES 2009, it was easily my favorite portable media player on display at the company's booth. I was intrigued by its magazine-like interface, pleased by its microSD card slot, and impressed by its wide array of...

Except for the extensive video codec support and microSD slot, nothing about the iriver P7 really stands out to me. It's a solid device that does everything it's supposed to do reasonably well, but there are simply better DAPs/PMPs on the market that...

iRiver P7 8GB


How does iRiver's P7 PMP fare against the likes of the Cowon O2 and iPod touch?

Finally, the right hand side brings us the current photo image and a panel for text. Click on any one of these, and you go straight to the relevant function. These sub-pages are also well designed, providing - in music playback, for example - access to...

iRiver P7 review


The iRiver P7 portable media player has one of the stranger designs we've seen. Its aluminium case has an unpleasant texture, and the edges are square, so it's not the most comfortable device to carry in your pocket.

The P7's great audio quality is let down by a frustrating touchscreen interface and a lack of physical controls.

iRiver P7 review


Multimedia portables are at last making the sort of impact that the first MP3 players made, with truly versatile machines finally finding their way into high-street pockets. iRiver is a name that's been on the scene for some time and the P7 is a PMP...

Stuff magazine


The P7 brings a stylish design and fresh ‘magazine-style' interface to the PMP scene. Will it become a cult alternative to the iPod Touch?

A refreshingly original design and interface, but greater functionality and performance can be found elsewhere

iriver P7


iRiver has jogged along behind Apple's offerings – and the gap seems to be widening on this evidence

Smart exterior ; big 4.3in screen ; decent file compatibility ; FM ; decent sound and vision

Fussy and basic touchscreen ; no web browsing ; poor off-axis

Review: iRiver P7


There's no doubt that iRiver have always placed a high emphasis on style for their media players – but perhaps at a cost to substance. When the iRiver P7 was launched during the summer it initially looked like it could be a serious competitor to the...

The iRiver P7 may not suit everyone in terms of looks, but it has enough to offer in terms of performance to attract the average user – particularly at the price. There are a few gripes – video performance and a slightly lacklustre touchpad – but audio...
