Toshiba Gigabeat F60


15,000 songs, a stunning 2.2-inch colour display and 16 hours of playback are alluring, but beware the Gigabeat's music management software and quirky navigation control.

High-res, colourful display for photos and album art ; Customisable screen themes and wallpaper ; Solid design with brushed aluminium faceplate ; Massive storage capacity

Plus-sign navigation fails to impress ; Slow, clunky PC software included

Although there is a lot to like about the Toshiba Gigabeat F60, we'd have a hard time recommending it to beginners, due to the clunky software and awkward navigation. However, if you can live with the no-click navigation and are willing to use Windows...

Toshiba are finally serious about taking on the iPod and this F60 Gigabeat has all the right tools, so can it pull it off?

Do not buy!

60GB is a lot of space for music. Nice screen and case. Still works after dropping it and the whole thing still looks pretty nice

Cannot add any more songs onto it because I have Vista, tried to download the update but it wouldn't work, then said corrupt. Even when it's turned off it seems to waste all the battery (I do put it on hold) then next time I go to use it it says...

I have had my F20 for over 3 yrs now. It has never failed once. I love it, i have dropped it a million times and it still works brilliantly. The best money I have ever spent with regards to audio/media products (i also recently purchased an ipod coz I...

The battery still lasts longer than my ipod despite it's age ; Easy to use and navigate ; Great durability despite rough treatment ; Excellent sound and picture quality ; Compatable with and through WMPlayer ; It's not an ipod with a touchy click-wheel

Original software - update gigabeat room to 3.0. Much better ; They don't make 'em anymore

I have had this MP3 for over a year now, its great.

Awesome Memory ; Holds images (you can use as background) ; Good screen ; Easy to use (once used to it) ; easy to use shortcuts ; (they take a while to work out though)

quite large ; as any other mp3 its not a cd its an actual hard drive so you can't drop it too much ; touch screen after time loses sensitivity ; (by time i mean years) ; expensive (but worth it)

The display is very nice and the sound seems pretty good, but the software is "tricky" and often splits up albums into separate files, which is very frustrating.

Nice screen

Awkward software and occasionally unresponsive controls

ABSOLUTELY worth the money. got my f40 for $180 online. my sys was antiquated so i bought a new cpu on ebay for $50. all-in-all still a great value. i've never had any problems with it unless i've gone too long w/out a charge. bought a spare usb...

i've never had a skip that wasn't on the cd. i've dropped it and it's kept playing without missing a beat. i have normal display on landscape so i can set it on it's side while i'm stationery. display is amazing! the preset photos are beautiful and...

can't sync protected files so i downloaded "fair use" to remove the tags and it sync's 'em fine. and i haven't found a gigabeat specific device to allow me to play my mp3's through my radio. case has an odd texture. seems to attract scratches, but...
