“At first, the Carbon seems like a great buy, but time...”

Written on: 25/06/2007 by tydawg2 (1 review written)

Good Points
The Carbon is a small, stylish mp3 player. It packs 6 GB of memory, or about 1500 songs. The menu is also very easy to navigate.

Bad Points
Well, where to start. First of all, it is hard to use Rio Music Manager. Sometimes you will have a song on your Carbon, the Manager will not read it, so you can't edit that song. Also, the Music Manager will divide music into multiple folders with the same name, and there is no way to combine them. The scroll wheel, although easy to use, is extremely fragile, and if dropped on a carpet from around 1 ft., will break. You can then no longer control the volume, and will have to buy a completely new Carbon. Last, but not least, is Rio's tech support. It sucks. You cannot even talk to a real person after the first 90 days without paying $20 a call. And the internet help doesn't help at all.

General Comments
At first, the Carbon seems like a great buy, but time will show you that it is a piece of rubbish, and no one can help you with it.
