General Comments
The iRiver H320 is a lovely unit. So many people seem to go for the ipod for style rather than functionality, and really this model wins hands down.

I have read reviews that say that the H320 is complicated to use. Is it heck! I am no computer expert but this took very little effort to use. It uses the method I like the best. Copy music onto your computer via WM. Then drag and drop the music onto the player. Dead simple even for a novice like me.

The file tree search facility is very easy to use and does not take ages like several reviewers have said. I love just putting the unit into shuffle mode and then seeing what it chooses for me to listen to.

I stated battery life as a bad point. I have to say I have only charged the battery twice, so it's optimum condition may not have been reached yet. However I am very confused about what is the best way to charge it; from flat every time or regular half charges. There seem to be lots of differing opinions, and as it is fixed in the unit and I am not confident to change it myself (it is possible), I want to make sure I get the best life out of it.

Definitely worth getting if you can find one!
