5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best, 27 Aug 2006
This review is from: iAudio X530L-30GB MP3/4 Player-Black (Electronics)
I got hold of this about six months ago and can't fault it. I had been looking for a player that would play non proprietary formats like (ogg) vorbis as vorbis is much better than MP3. I also wanted to avoid an iPod as I have heared some bad stories about unreliability and the attitude of Apple when they stop working after 13 months. I am very happy with the sound quality (I also got some Shure earphones) and the battery life is excellent. I can't recomend this highly enough, forget any other player, this has USB on the go (so you can plug it into another USB device, like a digital camera and copy files to the hard drive without a computer) and also has an FM radio. I have encoded my CDs to ogg vorbis, which saves space on the hard drive for the same sound quality as MP3, but I still have some MP3 tracks on my player. A work colleague only uses the FLAC lossless format on his X5 player, and this reproduces CD quality playback, though you will fit far less music on the player. Don't give Apple your hard earned money, their products are poor quality relative to this in my opinion.
