Which is better? I have my mind set for the iRiver, but I would like your input. I just need 1 more person to sign up.

Better sound quality, battery life.

iRiver color, FM radio, recorder, watch movies, browser, pictures. Pretty much all features of photo ipod but more.

i actually chose the Iriver when i completed mp34free because of all the nice features but also, i hateeeeeeeeeeeeee the iTunes software because it is terrible with arranging songs into your ipod and hard to use. plus the iRiver has longer battery life which is also a plus.

iPod. iTunes rules. I have no problem at all with using it and find it very simple to arrange over 25 gigs of music.
iRiver has a lot of flash, but it's made by Creative and uses Windows Media format. Yuck.

Are you kidding me? The battery life on the H320 blows ipods out of the water and sound quality is just as good if not better.

lol both are good..

Just depends if you want a solid mp3 player, go with the ipod,

If you want an mp3 player with extra features, the iRiver...

Thats my 2 cents anyway,

and im a ipod fan
ipod looks cool and is cool but iriver is better

I like the ipod because its easy to scroll through 5,000 songs with a click wheel.

I said above that I would choose the iRiver, that's if you are going to get the 20GB iPod that is not in color, it kinda sucks. But I chose iRiver because I was getting the 40GB Photo iPod anyways. Plus I eventually got the regular 20GB iPod from freeipods, so basically I would have had 3 iPods... What's the point of that, mix it up a little ).

i'm leaning heavily toward iriver, because of the FM function

how well does the iriver work with mac's. im pretty sure i read on their site that irivers are compatable but does anyone know if its a pain in the ass?

iRiver blows the ipod out. no competition. the video feature is just awesome(only if you download the international firmware)
