    Written on: 15/08/2008 by lionman (1 review written)

    I love my iriver, stores heaps of music and can easily be used as an external harddrive. I installed 'rockbox' as a dual boot firmware which has better sound and games and stuff, i reccomend this to any iHP-140 owner.
    I fried the motherboard on mine buy charging it off an inverter in the car... woops, got it fixed and has been running sweet for even more years.

    what a great device, they should make more of them!… Read Full Review

    It blows iPod's away!!

    The iRiver iHP-140 is simple to use in Windows. It does not use iTunes. The battery lasts longer than 1 hour, unlike my friends very expensive iPod, and it still looks like new, even after 3 years.

    Nothing better to match it!!… Read Full Review

    Written on: 11/03/2006 by Quadraspaz (1 review written)

    The iRiver iHP-140 is a Brilliant MP3 player! One of the best ever made in my opinion. This is aimed more towards those who like to use their MP3 collection how they want to, and not how iTunes or some other annoying peripheral software attempts to tell them. Simple drag & drop file system using native Windows. No messing around with software also means you can UPLOAD to a hard drive (a feature seriously lacking on an iPod). I upgraded mine to the Rockbox firmware so I can now record radio… Read Full Review

    i have the same player and was told that you could not change the battery? as mine is dead and won't hold the charge, if you can change it where do you get a new one and how do you do it? i would be very grateful for any info. regards Albie.

    Hi Albie, In order to change the battery you will first need to purchase a T-5 torx wrench which you can get at Sears or on ebay: http://www.sears.com/sr/javasr/product.do?BV_SessionID=@@@@0676904705.1148997100@@@@&BV_EngineID=ccghaddhliljejfcegecegjdghldgfk.0&pid=00941707000&subcat=Screwdrivers&vertical=TOOL&ihtoken=1
    The battery you will require is a 2200mAh (or thereabouts) 1st/2nd generation ipod battery available off ebay. Here is a forum where I discovered how to do it with all appropriate links etc.

    http://www.misticriver.net/showthread.php?t=39796

    The changing of the battery is not particularly difficult, however there is one thing that you must do carefully: this battery requires you to reverse the polarity of the two wires inserted into the white connector (red now becomes black & vice versa). When I did mine I accidently touched the wires together & saw a spark, luckily no damage was done & my battery duration normally runs for 24-29 hours. Enjoy

    iRiver iHP-140 is a Perfect6 in every way...

    More than enough memory for any music lover I have well over 300 albums on it and its so easy to navigate and the battery lasts about 14 hours... dont believe what ipod users tell you they all die in a couple of hours unlike the iriver. I dont need the radio because It holds all my music but its handy for listening to the cops hehehe cos it has no signal limiter. Oh and it comes up on your computer just like any other hard drive and uses the windows… Read Full Review

    Written on: 27/05/2005 by RichardB (2 reviews written)

    I've had my iRiver iHP-140 for a few months now, and its truly a great MP3 player. 40gb of disk for the price is excellent. It has more features than you can shake a stick at too - FM radio, recording via built in mic or external (supplied) mic, optical in (another recording source) and out, fully featured remote control, support for numerous file formats, firmware upgradeable, great battery life, fast file transfer and lots more.

    I've not been disappointed by it yet. As mentioned above, my… Read Full Review

    The iRiver iHP-140 is REALLY good value for money and you will not be disappointed with it. It has tons of useful features such as the tuner, recorder and its massive memory (40gb). Still, it also can play different music formats and comes with lots of options for different types of music (WOW surround sound). It looks stunning and has provided me with faultless reliability and is well worth the price… Read Full Review

    Written on: 13/11/2004 by chrisf (1 review written)

    I have owned the Iriver iHP-140 for five months now and I don't know how I got by before buying one. I have a large collection of albums 900+ that I'm converting to MP3 for my home network/tv/hifi system, but I needed something to play my music away from home. After a little surfing I went and bought an Iriver due to it's large hard drive and features.
    The sound quality is excellent now that I junked the original earphones and bought the In-ear units made by Sony. This gave the unit a wide… Read Full Review

    Hey, the iaudio also supports the mega-cool OGG Vorbis format! The sound quality of 128kbps in OGG is easily as good as CD quality! (which is 1141kbps!!!)

    Written on: 14/09/2004 by WSD (71 reviews written)

    I have only been using my iRiver iHP-140 for about a week and already I love it! It only took about an hour and a half to slap 16 full albums onto the hard drive, as opposed to making MP3 CD's which would have taken me about 3 times longer (this did, however, run the battery down VERY quickly, but it didn't take long to recharge). It would have been even quicker via USB 2.0 but for our outdated computer having an older port. Apparently you can buy a card with 2 USB 2.0 slots for under £16, so… Read Full Review
