Excellent sound quality, flexible player, able to play multiple codecs...
Overall a great legacy player, may have been the best sounding mp3 player to date.
Well recommend iRiver H340. (read more)

The iRiver H340 is not as stylish as other MP3 players but a lot more features than most. Big online community, Korean firmware upgrades give extra features. Handy for easy recording of vinyl to MP3 and recordings sound surprisingly good. (read more)

The iRiver H340 player was my second mp3 player after Creative Zen. I found that this MP3 player is much superior than Creative's Zen. The sound quality is very excellent. The accessories with this player are of high quality: it comes with Sennheiser headphones, a very good cover, an external microphone, wired remote control and a male-male 3.5mm cable for line-in/out. All these accessories are necessary for any mp3 player.
I still find this player the best. Although it is larger and... (read more)

Run, run away quickly. I have had my H340 for just over a year and so just out of warranty. It went reasonably well for the first 6-8 months, then started freezing, skipping songs, not finding songs, shutting down. It then starting dying a slow painful death and was not recognised by any computer meaning I couldn't get any of my 40gb of data off it. It is now completely cactus. iRiver have been spectacularly avoidant and not one of my many many emails, phone calls has been answered. (read more)

I would not recommend this to anyone, I will never purchase an iRiver product again, and I can barely say one good thing about it. I gave it an overall rating of 2 because the sound quality is at least half decent. There is nothing else I can say about it that is good or positive. (read more)

The iRiver H340 is, in many ways, a superb player which I would wholeheartedly recommend in most departments, but with one HUGE reservation. Its shortcomings in navigating a large collection are so dire, I can only assume those who have had no problem with it only have a few tracks, a very limited number of different albums and artist, or the patience of a saint (and yes I do know how to use it properly!). The problem is that there is no fast scroll mechanism, and the scroll speed is slow... (read more)

I wanted an MP3 player and basically got more than I bargained for. iRiver H340 plays full length movies!!!
Everyone raves on about Ipods but all my wife's one does is annoy me in it's cumbersome useage.
I have had up to 9200 files (36 Gb) loaded onto my H340 with no problems. The only time I had a problem was when I switched on the indexing, it too so long (2 hours to boots up) that I haven't used it since. The player has a very powerful microphone that I use for record my guitar and... (read more)

The iRiver H340 is my first MP3 player and I have to say it is very good compared to what I have seen from my friends iPod and Creative players. The quality and sheer sound far exceed those other well advertised machines.
It couldn't be any easier than a simple drag and drop of an MP3 to your iRiver H340 which is recognised as a portable device by windows XP..
Well worth the money and the added features of a radio, text viewer and radio is an added bonus.
With it's whopping 40GB HDD and the... (read more)

The iRiver H340 is by far the most frustrating piece of junk I have ever had the misfortune to buy.
It is slow to navigate through tracks...In a race with an iPod it took the iPod 6 seconds to scroll through 1029 tracks.. The H340 didn't get passed the letter A in that time!!!!
Can't work out how to play an album in the track order on the CD, the H340 always plays back alphabetically... Dark Side Of the Moon in alphabetical order....I don't think so!!!
If you want my advice...
DON'T BUY... (read more)

I have an iRiver H340 mp3 player and I am very satisfied with my purchase. it's easy to add and customise your files. Also the firmware updates that you get from the iRiver global website alows you to add some more features to an already jam packed piece of equipement. Just the other month I got the latest version which allowed me to watch movies, I was very pleased about that.
Where I think the iPod is better is with the design, the Hseries its too big and bulky and its harder to put into... (read more)

The iRiver H340 is my first portable digital music player - I have been waiting for some years for the technology to mature and was looking forward to entering the brave new world of digital music.
Your appreciation of this device will depend solely upon your expectation. I was expecting to be able to plug the device into my PC, download and synchronise the music files on the device and on my computer, easily create playlists to suit my mood and take them with me, and browse the music on...

After much deliberation and dwelling upon the I-Pod, and only hearing negative comments from owners I was guided towards the iRiver H340 portable MP3 player. Now having owned the HD340 for nearly 3 months Im more than happy with it and have road tested it on lengthy bus journeys, you get the full 8 hours from the battery life and thats without the battery back up.
The photo storage is fairly usefull too, depends on how you want to use the I-River.
The radio is pretty naff, hard to get a... (read more)
