iRiver Lplayer

 

If you care about your music but you want a compact player, you won't go far wrong with iRiver's Lplayer.

All this adds up to an impressive package that makes the Lplayer one of the best compact players around at the moment. It's very pocketable, beautifully made, has an excellent control system and screen, and a very good range of features.

Great look, poor battery

Handy software ; Easy to use ; Compact and lightweight ; Nice price

Buttons can be unresponsive ; Rubbish battery life

A cute and well-featured device, let down by its woeful battery life

iRiver Lplayer 8GB review

 

iRiver's Lplayer is the cheapest 8GB player here, costing £10 less than the same company's E100 and Philips' GoGear. Despite this, its distinctive controls make it look more expensive.

iRiver Lplayer review

 

iRiver's Lplayer is an 8GB portable media player so small and cute you'll want to take it home and adopt it. And at 41g, it's no heavyweight, either.

A petit and stylish player with extensive format support and good audio quality, it's not without its faults, but we do like the Lplayer. And while it's unlikely to have Apple quaking in its boots, the iRiver Lplayer is a well priced media player that...

iRiver L-Player 8GB review

 

Good old iRiver's back with another Nano-baiter. Can the titchy L Player charm our eyes and ears?

A novel and talented player at a great price, but not class-leading

iRiver L Player 4GB

 

The iRiver L Player is essentially a multimedia player. It only consists of a high resolution display. There are no knobs or buttons that can be seen on this device. It can play music, videos, photos and even open up documents. It also has an FM tuner....

The L player never really threatened the new iPod nano. But for any Apple-phobes or fans of lossless FLAC music (if there are such people), this is a decent alternative. iRiver L Player 4GB is tagged with iriver, MP3 player and FM radio. Select a tag...

iRiver Lplayer

 

Petite portable media player with D*click interface

Great quality screen, slim, interesting control scheme, extras such as FM radio and voice recorder, lots of file formats supported

Controls can be unresponsive, track sorting not perfect

The iRiver Lplayer is an impressive portable media player. It offers a host of features, has a good quality screen and comes at a low price. Just a few niggling interface and control issues detract from what is otherwise a strong iPod nano competitor.

iRiver LPlayer review: iRiver LPlayer

 

iRiver LPlayer

The Iriver LPlayer is packed with features, including an FM radio, voice recording, bookmarking, subscription music support, multiple sound-enhancement options, and support for both Mac and Windows. It also offers an ultracompact design with a nice,...

The LPlayer's buttons aren't always responsive, and our test unit came with a bug that caused album names to be displayed in a foreign language. Videos must be transferred through software, and the rated battery life is not great.

The Iriver LPlayer is a pint-size version of the well-received Clix. You get most of the same features in a smaller package offered at a pared-down price point.
