iRiver Clix 2nd Generation
- Beautiful AMOLED display, simple, intuitive controls
- Easy to accidentally click controls
The iRiver Clix 2nd Generation is a lightweight, easy-to-use flash-based player, with a nice display and fairly good sound.
Price$ 295.00 (AUD)
The small, sleek iRiver Clix 2nd Generation has pretty much everything you'd want in a flash-based media player, starting with a beautiful, easy-to-read display and good controls.
The iRiver Clix 2nd Generation plays MP3, OGG, and WMA song files; and it's compatible with eMusic, Napster, Sony, Urge, and Yahoo online services. Not to mention also supporting files saved in WMV or Mpeg format for video playback.
Video looks crisp and bright on the iRiver Clix 2nd Generation's 2.2in, active-matrix organic light-emitting diode (AMOLED) display. The iRiver Clix 2nd Generation can play and record FM radio, too, and it can handle voice recordings.
The iRiver Clix 2nd Generation's entire front panel functions as a directional pad. By clicking up-down or left-right, you can quickly navigate the menus and make selections.
Unfortunately it fared poorly at handling harmonic distortion and cross-talk; our test of the latter measure assesses whether sound from one channel leaks into the other. In informal testing, we got reasonably clean sound through the accompanying ear buds.
The iRiver Clix 2nd Generation is a fine player, with a great display and intuitive controls. Its storage space can't match that of a hard-disk-based player; but if you're looking for a light, portable, flash-based device, the iRiver Clix 2nd Generation makes an excellent choice.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!
For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
