Its very well built, and has a large display. SOund qaulity is amazing - much better than my ipod, and it slips into your pocket easily. The Rio Music Manager software that it comes with is fantastic too. Battery life is said to be 20 hours - I haven't actually timed it, but so far its a hell of a lot better than the 6 hours I was getting with my ipod.
For 120 quid, you really can't go wrong with this device - BUY IT NOW!
But apart from that I am in love. Over Christmas I am going to Eygpt. I will be listening to my rio carbon as I float down the nile....
Its such a shame because I really did fall in love with the little fella but all of the plus points about the Carbon come to nothing if the thing stops working. And the worry is that whatever went wrong with my player is a potential problem waiting to happen with every player. Lets face it, they all use the same components. I think the whole micro-HDD technology is still very young and because of the level of competition between MP3 player manufacturers, they are rushing their products out without proper testing etc (iPod Nano a case in point). So i'm back on the market for an MP3 player. I may still go for another Carbon and hope for a better experience but at the moment i'm edging towards buying a non-HDD player to avoid all those potential HDD problems.
It came at less than half the price of an Ipod and had DOUBLE the storage capacity.
Out of the case it looks sleek and slim and has a nice light up feature when in power. It is able to read MP3 and WMA formats where as Ipods can only handle MP3. It will ALSO WORK WITH ITUNES!!!!
The software included makes it a doddle to manage your music, giving you options to create playlists, (great for the gym).
Also when this system is plugged into your pc it shows up as an E drive allowing you to quickly and effortlessly to send music and other files to it. (handy for the office take word Excel and powerpoint files home).
Final word on this product would be to buy it! I PROMISE you will NOT regret it!
Rio music manager, the best music software for an MP3 player around at the moment. Of course, you can sync it with Windows Media player too, another huge advantage, if the music manager isnt too your liking.
The Rio case cover with Belt clip is another great piece of equipment included, fits to the Rio Carbon like a glove, with screen protector, alost allowing you to access all the controls.
The Battery life is absolutely fantasic, and well worth the 20 hours described by Rio.
Sound quality is top notch, and flawless. The charger provided is a great tribute to Rio, and their thinking. Provided is 3 travel adapters allowing you to take your Rio anywhere.
The only slight disadvantage I can think of, is the fact I dint buy one before, but now I have it!
Oh and yeah, whats an ipod, cause this surely eclipses it!
