"Amazing Features, Sonic Quality, Simple to Use"4.5 starson by Lawrence Lee
Pros: Clean & Customizable Interface, Features, Sound Quality
Cons: No Line-In Recording, Middling Battery Life
Summary: Had a lot of players. Tried the iRiver iP700, Clix 1, Creative Zen, Nano, Cowon D2, iPod Nano.
By far the Best Non-iPod player made. Not much functional change from the first generation. But then again they nailed the features on the Gen 1 player.
This is the only player that rivals the iPod in the user interface department. Screen themes and fonts are totally customizable. Amazing and Beautiful. Check it out on Youtube.
It blows the iPod away in terms of features.
FM Radio and recording, SRS WOW, Voice recording.
The sound quality blows iPods away. In fact in terms of sonic quality iPods a decidedly worse than practically every player out there.
Shame on you Steve Jobs!!! Why can't you made a decent sounding player.
Let me stop my rant...
This player would rate a 10 if it had Line-In Recording. The Gen 1 Clix had this feature. What gives?Updated
Had a 4GB Clix and Upgraded to the 8GB model. They've Improved it.
The new Theme GUI is a thing of beauty and improves the "Now Playing" manu and other displays.
Now the orientation can be rotated 4 ways instead of just 2. An important feature if you want to use the player on a neck lanyard.
Pay the 50.00 extra and get the 8GB you won't be sorry. I'm elated.
I'd now give this player a 10, but Cnet does not allow that to be changed...
