iriver E100 review: iriver E100

 

iriver E100

The Iriver E100 is packed with pretty much every feature in the book--photo and video playback, an FM radio, all recording capabilities, compatibility with both Windows and Mac, extensive audio file format support, bookmarking, microSD card expansion,...

The Iriver E100 has a cheap, plastic feel, and the interface is very basic. The clickpad is not totally responsive, and some navigation is sluggish. D-Click navigation isn't optimal for the control pad setup. No integrated podcast support.

The Iriver E100 is a decent choice for people who want a ton of features in an easy-to-use package, but if you're after speedy navigation or top-notch sound quality, look elsewhere.

Click pad irritation We wouldn't necessarily say that the Iriver E100 completely fails in the design department, but it could definitely use some work. The main issue is the control pad--it's just bad. It's plastic and feels cheaply constructed. The...

iriver E100

 

This slickly styled player is easy on the eyes, but it's simply frustrating to use.

Slick design. microSD slot. Strong file support. FM radio and recording. Voice recording and line-in recording.

Photos and video don't look so great on the not-so-sharp screen. Uninspired user interface. Difficult navigation. Many settings and options are difficult to find.

iRiver iRiver E100

 

With its cream-colored plastic casing and minimalist controls (the entire area beneath the 2.4-inch display is a four-way mechanical rocker with a small center button), iRiver's E100 resembles a slightly overweight Apple Nano--or maybe a small...

Versatile media player ; Competitive price

Mediocre audio ; Unintuitive interface

The E100 handles lots of media types, but falls short in playback quality and usability.

iRiver E100 MP3 Player Review - Intro

 

The iRiver E100 is an entry-level media player that looks a bit like a slider-style cell phone. The E100 doesn't have many frills and it does have quite a few issues. The software looks downright dated, especially for a device sharing its market with...

Small and portable ; Big screen for its size, external memory card slot ; Basic layout ; Media libraries have simple, intuitive layouts ; Above average frequency response, good noise control, very little crosstalk. ; Good; Don't need to use sync software

Tends to get dingy-looking easily ; Really bad controls ; Unintuitive menu system.; Navigating the library is annoying.; Has a huge problem with distortion, packaged-in headphones are garbage.; Bad; The sync software is strictly worse than free options

The iRiver E100 is expensive for the functionality it provides. In the current media player market, which is utterly dominated by iPods, very few media players choose to challenge Apple at its main price points. Archos, for example, makes high-end...

iRiver E100 Digital Media Player

 

iRiver's new E100 digital media player offers a several terrific features, including a MicroSD memory slot, FLAC and OGG support, and the ability to record audio (there's a built-in mic and a line-level input). Unfortunately, all that goodness is...

Mic and line-level input, MicroSD memory slot, OGG and FLAC support

Crappy display, problematic software, sloppy buttons

With so many very strong digital media players on the market, there’s just not much of a reason to give the iRiver E100 a second thought.

iRiver E100 4GB

 

The iRiver E100 is an entry-level media player, available in 4GB, and 8GB sizes for about $60 and $80 respectively. As you might have guessed from the price, the E100 is a basic device. It doesn't have the frills and level of extensability that many...

The E100 had good battery life for music playback: you can squeeze out about 17 and a half hours from a full charge. On video playback, however, expect your batteries to die after about 3 and a half hours

iriver E100 became just a revelation for me, it seems like engineers and marketing specialists of this company read attentively the reviews of journalists who described  their production.

iriver E100 Review

 

The E100 will be iriver's first player to be released in the US since the clix2, which I was very fond of. This player comes in 2GB, 4GB, and 8GB capacities in several different modern colors. Audio codec is supreme supporting all the major licensed...

I understand that iriver was targeting a lower end market with the E100, but I can't help but feel let down by this player. Maybe I was just too excited to get my hands on a premium brand MP3 player as iriver has always been. This is a text book...
