Written on: 31/05/2009

The iRiver H10 device is the worst media device ive ever had. it is nearly impossible to sync files from the device to my computer. i have decided to go with the ipod. every time i try to sync nothing is recognized until i disconnect the iriver and it says that the device is nearly full and i have 7.2 gigs left out of 20. i paid 300.00 dollars for this device and apparently lost about 2700 songs. i will never have another and will continue to give bad reviews until this problem is resolved… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/02/2009

Overall the iRiver H10 is a brilliant little device, not only for those who like listening to music, but musicians who need to listen to themselves or others. Excellent sound, ease of use, ability to manipulate sound to ones musical taste,FM Radio a plus, ability to record from Fm Radio brilliant.
Plenty of storage
Not over fussy in design. Quite chunky, but that's me being a bit fussy.

The battery life could be a little better, but overall it is a quality and sleek MP3 player. The battery can be replaced, meaning that when one battery is losing life fast, all you need to do is buy a new one, not a whole new iRiver H10 MP3 player… Read Full Review

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

The sound on the iRiver H10 MP3 player is brilliant, the batteries are fairly good and the screen looks really clear. It was value for money at the time (€150), but looking back, this is now the second one broken, and a lot of time spent transferring songs on to it. I guess I will be heading to the shops tomorrow, but this time I will try another brand… Read Full Review

“I really like this device, but I wish it wouldn't hang...”

Written on: 09/10/2006 by markuk (6 reviews written)

I really like this device, but I wish it wouldn't hang so much. I have updated to the latest firmware which helped a little (you can download a tool that searches for the latest update for you). I sync with Windows Media player 10 and 11 beta. It isn't a bad experience, but it can drive you mad at times when it decides to hang for no obvious reasons. Surely it's not that difficult to get this sorted?

Once you have your media files on the iRiver H10 MP3 player it works great, and it has given… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/09/2006 by Rudecat (1 review written)

I must be the unluckiest man in England! After buying 2 Sony NW-A 3000's that crashed on me, I was looking for an alternative and decided to buy the 20Gb iRiver H10 MP3 player.

Like Ronseal, it does exactly what is says on the tin which I liked. It's no nonsense drag 'n' drop facility makes copying music simple. But alas, it was too good to be true. After a days play I decided to add a large music file (various artists) and it didn't keep the file together, so I decided to delete the file. On… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/08/2006 by localplan (1 review written)

The iRiver H10 MP3 player has all the features that I wanted when I bought it; including, FM, FM recording with timer and scheduler and line-in recording. At the time this player first appeared on the market it was the best player out there, but now, iRiver has some newer models that have more features and are smaller in size, so if I was going to buy another player right now, I wouldn't buy the H10. I might go for something like the iRiver Clix. I am however very satisfied with my purchase… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/08/2006 by Jamiecasey37 (2 reviews written)

If you download most of your music, I don't think this MP3 player is for you. I rate the H10 very well, 8/10 I've given. However when it comes to synchronizing downloaded tracks it becomes a pain in the backside. Lucky enough for me about 80% of my albums are ripped off CDs, but with the 20% downloaded I just get frustrated when it comes to the iRiver. You see every column in your media library must be exactly the same spelling otherwise you end up with lots of different files for one band… Read Full Review

“I could never recommend buying an H10 because the unit...”

Written on: 19/06/2006 by Jerry2006 (1 review written)

I could never recommend buying an H10 because the unit is just not reliable enough
- The first unit I bought didn't work (and I mean nothing) straight out of the box.
- The second worked for about 3 months and then had a "catastophic system failure" after reasonable daily use and had to be returned.
- The third has just done exactly the same thing after 6 months of hardly being used at all and I'm not looking forward to the upcoming argument with the supplier.

The iRiver H10 is pretty, it's… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/02/2006 by tompetty (3 reviews written)

I bought 2 iRiver H10 MP3 players and had them delivered to me whilst I was serving in the Middle East. This may have been the reason why one of the players stopped working within 24 hours of receiving it.

My retailer replaced the unit for me, and I have never looked back since. The player is so simple to use, and you only really need to use 4 buttons in order for it to do everything:

On/Off button: won't explain this one!
Scroll Pad/Button: to change the volume, scroll through… Read Full Review

The iRiver H10 is a really really really really really good MP3 player! Trust me, I did all the research before buying my MP3 player, and when I got the H10 it was all that I expected and more. It is the best player you can get at the moment, especially for people with a fair amount of music, that also like features to keep them entertained, and a little bit of style too. I've got two friends with Apple's cliched players, and my player is a lot better… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/08/2005 by emovert (1 review written)

The iRiver H10 is an awesome player. It's easy to figure out, and it worked from go. Good volume, good sound quality, heaps of EQ settings, and not overly complicated but not boringly simple. This player has heaps of useful features like FM radio, FM radio recording (record your favourite radio shows or steal any cool songs you hear), photo viewer, voice recorder, line out recorder (this means you can record songs off a CD player), and a 260 colour screen. This player simply outsmarts the… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/08/2005 by karlaj (1 review written)

The iRiver H10 comes with software which becomes the default music player on your computer, which is annoying as its not a good player. Not easy to load songs onto the player and if they come from your own cds it shows up as "unknown artist" which you can change by going into the properties of each song - long and irritating process. You have to create playlists in the software then tranfer them over and if you want to skip from the song playing to the next song there will be a gap of about… Read Full Review

I think that the software used is very good. Personally, I find it easy to use and wouldn't swap it for anything else.

“The iRiver H10 MP3 Player is the best of all worlds. ”

Written on: 02/08/2005 by razzmar3 (3 reviews written)

The iRiver H10 MP3 Player is the best of all worlds.

Firstly, it's small and lightweight. It fits in your pocket a dream and doesn't look like something obscene like other, bigger players.
What's more, the H10 comes with a rubber cover which slips snugly over the player and has a belt clip attached.

The player is what I believe to be the best looking player currently on the market. Its design is easy to use and doesn't compromise on style. Although the scroll bar-which is the same as those… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/04/2005 by bav (2 reviews written)

I brought my iRiver H10 as a replacement for my Creative Zen Micro and was expecting 'better than iPod performance'.

The player looks the part, small light weight, sleek metal finish in a small range of colours. The colour screen is the same quality as the first colour screen Nokia phones. This means that it will display jpeg's but only the files it can handle anything more will result in an error message. The screen resolution is OK so don't be expecting digital quality display.

The radio… Read Full Review

The latest firmware upgrade now allows album order playback, so that objection has gone.
