iRock 830 MP3/FM afspiller @ Subzerotech



A Pricegrabber search on the iRock 830 came up with results around $89! Very cheap for a product of such stellar performance and features. I admit there are a few downsides such as only a few pre-set EQ's and lack of a expansion slot. However, there are many features to make up for it such as the FM tuner, long lasting battery life and the VERY affordable price tag. iRock continues to develop some budget MP3 players for the average consumer, packing in as much as they can for as little as they can. But what's the verdict? It's a toss up, due to its limited expandability, its hard for me to say go out and buy one. 128MB is a lot, you can pack a full CD and one or two extra MP3's onto the 830. Still, this may not be enough for all, juggling in the FM tuner is also another factor. If you feel 128MB is enough for you, by all means I'd say go for the iRock 830, however, with all the growing music service out there and the popularity of pay-for service MP3's, the music collecting population will be growing. Personal music collections will be growing as well and its hard to see many people feel 128MB be enough for them to carry around. I know many people with gigabytes worth of MP3's and less less people with megabytes worth. When I saw that even my 40 yr old relatives have a bigger MP3 collection than I do, that's when I knew a 128MB MP3 player is not enough for everyone. Gigabytes worth of MP3's are not only found on computers of audiophiles anymore, soon, your uncle, you aunt, your parents, even your grandparents may have a larger MP3 collection than you. As scary as that may sound, it is just what these MP3 services are hoping for and it's only a matter of time before it happens. Still, with this in mind the iRock 830 is a must buy for anyone who can live with 128MB of music at a time, all you others thinking that is too little, then you are looking for a hard drive based MP3 player, which might I add will cost A LOT more. The trade off is like carrying one LONG CD with a 128MB player and with a HDD based player you can carry one LONG CD on top of an entire book full of CDs. The choice is yours, choose wisely but do remember you can always buy from a store with a good return policy, like BestBuy so you can return a player if you feel it doesn't meet your needs. Just don't tell them I told you to do that.
