iRiver LPlayer review: iRiver LPlayer

 

iRiver LPlayer

The Iriver LPlayer is packed with features, including an FM radio, voice recording, bookmarking, subscription music support, multiple sound-enhancement options, and support for both Mac and Windows. It also offers an ultracompact design with a nice,...

The LPlayer's buttons aren't always responsive, and our test unit came with a bug that caused album names to be displayed in a foreign language. Videos must be transferred through software, and the rated battery life is not great.

The Iriver LPlayer is a pint-size version of the well-received Clix. You get most of the same features in a smaller package offered at a pared-down price point.

iRiver LPlayer

 

The Lplayer from iriver will seem familiar to some people. At first glance, it looks like a smaller iriver Clix. The two players use the same D*click technologythe company's term for its innovative, practically button-free design. You navigate the...

Compact design. Good-looking graphics. Easy, push-screen navigation. FM radio and recording. Voice recording

Tiny screen. Some menu options can be difficult to find. Video conversion software can mess up aspect ratios

A worthy follow-up to the venerable Clix, this iPod nano-esque player is a viable alternative for those not tied to iTunes.

Review: iriver Lplayer

 

The latest digital media player to be released by iriver in the US is the super compact Lplayer. Boasting OGG, FLAC, and XviD support, the flash player packs a 2-inch TFT display, D-Click navigational system, FM radio, and other extra features into a...

The iriver Lplayer has a lot to offer in a compact, attractive, and affordably priced package. It sounds great, has more extra features than many of its competitors, and is easy and fun to use. The player is a good choice for consumers looking for an...

iriver LPlayer Review

 

iriver announced quite a few players at CES 2008 and now they are starting to tickle out. First was the E100, now the Lplayer- next the Volcano and SPINN to follow in the next few months. I was a bit concerned that iriver lost its way with the E100...

If you like iriver products you will like the LPlayer, since it's the same great formula iriver has used on the popular clix line of players. But by the same note, there is nothing innovating. The lPlayer is the clix/clix2 minus some features and in a...

iRiver Lplayer

 

Petite portable media player with D*click interface

Great quality screen, slim, interesting control scheme, extras such as FM radio and voice recorder, lots of file formats supported

Controls can be unresponsive, track sorting not perfect

The iRiver Lplayer is an impressive portable media player. It offers a host of features, has a good quality screen and comes at a low price. Just a few niggling interface and control issues detract from what is otherwise a strong iPod nano competitor.

If you care about your music but you want a compact player, you won't go far wrong with iRiver's Lplayer.

All this adds up to an impressive package that makes the Lplayer one of the best compact players around at the moment. It's very pocketable, beautifully made, has an excellent control system and screen, and a very good range of features.

iRiver Lplayer 8GB review

 

iRiver's Lplayer is the cheapest 8GB player here, costing £10 less than the same company's E100 and Philips' GoGear. Despite this, its distinctive controls make it look more expensive.
