I can honestly say this Diamond Rio Riot 20GB Digital Audio Player is a superb bit of equipment, I did my homework and purchased my Rio Roit on Ebay for £120'ish' bargain!
Campared to most Portable MP3 Players this has an excellent display screen, with a mass of information.
20 Gig storage is plenty. I've only filled about 10 gig of mine and have 160 albums stored.

My first Diamond Rio Riot portable MP3 player would not hold a charge. The battery went dead within a half hour and the charge indicator did not work at all. The second unit had many hard drive errors and I could load only three CD's before it crashed. The third unit works like a charm.
I travel abroad for weeks at a time and the Rio Riot is a wonderful way to pass my time on the trains. The only major negative to report is the lack of quality control by Sonic Blue. Had my wife not insisted... (read more)
