iriver P7


iriver's pretty P7 offers a large display and strong file support, but it's missing some key features that Apple and Archos players include.

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!

iriver P7 review


The Iriver P7 is an attractive touch-screen portable video player, offered in 8GB ($169) and 16GB ($199) capacities. Like its smaller cousin, the Iriver SPINN , the P7 sports an aluminum design and offers music, video, radio, and photo playback, as...

The Iriver P7 is a gorgeous portable video player that packs in music, movies, photos, radio, voice recording, and a text reader.

For a PVP, the P7 is relatively inflexible when it comes to video format support, the touch-screen response is sluggish, and the included PC software is nearly useless.

The Iriver P7 is like a beautifully crafted concept car with a frustrating lack of horsepower, but the price is compelling.

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...

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...

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
