Looking for a feature-packed MP3 player without the iPod price?
Buy.com has the iRiver H10 5GB MP3 player (refurbished) for $33.99 with free shipping. The player works with Windows Media Player 10 and supports MP3 and WMA, as well as Secure WMA for online downloads and services.
The iRiver H10 is supersleek at 3.7 by 2.1 by 0.6 inches and 3.4 ounces. This model is a few years old but still has a 1.5-inch color LCD screen for viewing photos and a swappable battery that the company claims delivers about 12 hours of continuous listening.
When you get tired of listening to the same albums over and over again, you can switch to the FM tuner, which features 20 autoscannable presets. It also sports an integrated voice recorder with FM recording capabilities.
A CNET reviewer gave this model a rating of "very good" back in 2005, saying that the "iRiver H10 truly outclasses the competition in the features department...however, its controls aren't as intuitive as they look, and battery life was disappointing."
It's available only in Trance Red at this price. No word on how long Buy.com will be offering this deal, so if it sounds good, act fast.
