  • Expert Rating

    4.00 / 5

Pros

  • Beautiful AMOLED display, simple, intuitive controls

Cons

  • Easy to accidentally click controls

Bottom Line

The iRiver Clix 2nd Generation is a lightweight, easy-to-use flash-based player, with a nice display and fairly good sound.

Would you buy this?

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.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
