iRiver SlimX CD & MP3 player - A solid workhorse gracefully going out to pasture

byjkafer Jan 2, 2006
27 Helpfuls 28 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros excellent features, MP3 and WMA support, lots of hardware goodies, fantastic battery life
Cons No DRM support, outdated storage method.
Recommended it? Yes

Before the days of inexpensive hard drive based MP3 players, there was a line of MP3 players that were CD based. Since was the far more economical way of storing music because of instead of paying $500 for a gig, I could pay half that for roughly 700 Megs multiplied by however many CDs I could...

Slim X is a great player

bymplezia May 13, 2005
7 Helpfuls 8 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros compact size and good battery life
Cons a bit of a learning curve with controls, not entirely intuitive.

I've had my i-river Slim X for a few months now and really love it. I haven't had any problems at all and once I got used to operation of the unit it's been clear sailing.

I would recommend this player to anyone considering a CD based MP3 player.

Good player but not Durable!

Pros Great Remote. Rechargeable batteries, small size.
Cons Not durable, skip protection could be better, takes a while to load.
Recommended it? No

I got this cd player about 2 years ago. I decided on a cd/mp3 player because I didnt want to spend the $500 on an ipod and I also liked the idea of not having a fixed amount of space for storing music. I researched the features I wanted and decided on this iriver. I was very satisfied during the 2... Read full review »

Pros Appearance. Remote is useful. Decent sound quality.

Recommended it? No

I've had mine for about 2 years. Very solid. I've treated it like crap and it hasn't really lost any steam. The sound quality is pretty good and the real metal shell is really classy. One problem is that because its so thin it can't take AA batteries in the actual unit. If you want to have the unit... Read full review »

How Can My Experience Be SO DIFFERENT?

Pros Cheap, plays MP3, WMA, CD
Cons CHEAP, plays MP3, WMA, CD, FM, POORLY, wires everywhere

Geez, what great reviews on this product on Epinions. My experience has been slightly different. The bottom line (in my opinion) is this: if you're going to be moving around (exercising, painting, doing other chores) that involve motion, don't waste your money on this player. The i-350 boasts...

Cons The remote.

First of all, I like to say that I am a music enthusiast. That being said, I love my new Iriver SlimX 350. I have so many mp3 disks and I wanted something to play what I already had burned and not have to mess with Flash players. I also have a Sony Psyc/NF400, which I recently purchased only...

Pros No much skipping
Cons buttons and controls are onerous
Recommended it? No

I don't know what all the rave is about. My worked fine, but it was a pain to have the battery and the display outside of the player -- feels like some the guts are hanging out of the body. The designer also try to fit too many functions into just a few button and if you push the wrong button the... Read full review »

I bought iRiver Slim X iMP-350 for two reasons: design and positive reviews. Now when I got the unit, I don't think I would've ordered it again. Don't take me wrong: it is a great CD/MP3/etc player and if you are a music enthusiast, you may really like it. My problem is that I don't use it very... Read full review »

I bought my iRiver 350 six months ago and haven't regretted it a bit. It is a must have on my daily hour long bus commute to work.

I don't think I could ever live without this machine. I truthfully go everywhere with it. The convenient size, storage space, and amazing features make this player a great buy. I think one of the best features is it's ability to play MP3 formatted files.

Whether or not you use mp3/wma or not, this is the last portable CD player you'll need.

it's difficult to decide what kind of personal audio player to buy with so many different types on the market. it seems like an average cd-player that does nothing else just no longer cuts it, and the reason why is because of machines like this.
