Sorry, but on that cybergun comment, they are actually great guns...well, some are at least. I just bought a new uzi AEG from them for 289.90 from pyramidairsoft.com,and its way better than my marui mp5k. I've probably got about 2,000 worth of airsoft if you combine everything (batteries, mags, guns, bbs, chargers, etc), and it's very rewarding. I can honestly say if cybergun ever made more AEG's i would probably buy more of them. They hired marushin to make the guns and i am very pleased. The problem is only they only make one more AEG, and thats an M4 or M16...can't remember, and i can't stand M16/M4 looks. Anyways, just wanted to make it clear that cybergun is finally cranking out some real good airsoft guns now. And i know that this article is old, i just wanted to clarify that cybergun has better quality than they are given credit for.
Or you are buying from CYMA, Well, or Cybergun.
I do know what i'm talking about most of the time. Even my sister, who works for apple as a tech, agrees that ipod firmare sucks. You are correct regarding upgradable firmware (albeit sucky firmware)(my bad); its been 2 months since i upgraded to my h320 and i at least was never able to upgrade my firmware no matter how hard i tried...not even my sister could get it to. HOWEVER, DRM is (or was) a major issue on ipods. I haven't been able to use that much if any downloaded music and even music from some actual cd's on my ipod when i did use that piece of shit 40 gig...waste of 400 bucks. IN MY OPINION, and many of my friends', ipod firmware does, in fact, suck. And it isn't neccessarily the interface i don't like, its everything about it. The architecture of itunes and the ipod are incredibly undesirable to at least 15 other people who actually know software, not including myself. And i wouldn't trade my H320 for any other mp3 player; they're the best of 4 MP3's i've tried (ipod 40 gig 3rd gen, sony hd-3, dell jukebox are the others). So, yes, i will admit i was wrong regarding the firmware upgradeablility. Otherwise, please prove me wrong. Which i'm sure you will.
Ok, it's been a day since I last posted and alot seems to have happened. Grinch, they don't say anything about playing movies because they don't out of the box. However, if you go to www.misticriver.net, there are many forums and an FAQ's section about how to upload movies and use it as a web browser for each type of player. You just have to upgrade the firmware. Another plus of the I-river, cancelling out the "mini-computer" minus--IPOD FIRMWARE SUCKS. You CANNOT upgrade ipod firmware unless you get someone who works at apple and is your friend to do so. I know a good deal about programming and how it works, etc., and iriver has GREAT firmware which is upgradeable. I upgraded to the 1.27 korean version because it ELIMINATES DRM, which is impossible on ipods. You also don't have to use windows-based firmware, i just chose too because i'm good with windows. There are many different types of firmware which you can upgrade, both by iriver for free or by private companies for a cost. And talio, the Zen Jukebox was my second choice, they are fantastic as well and are very cheap. However, i went with the h320 because of the color screen. And if, just to clear things up, ANYONE chooses to get an ipod mini, for the love of god get a gateway photo jukebox or an iriver h10. Color screens for the same price. --Fishman
yep. movies. pictures. anything. its even got an internet browser if you have the right connection. it's semi-based on xp, so it's almost like a mini-computer. You can record the fm radio too, and make favorites on your channels. AND it has a mic right on the side so you can record yours and others' voices. Comes with a free case, usb cord, great manual, free earbuds, ac charger and some other goodies. Its awesome...to be honest its the shit. Kicks my ipod's ass any day.
H320's ARE BOMB! This coming from a previous ipod owner. I've had my H320 for a little bit now and i can honestly say they are the best mp3 player i've ever owned (gone thru 4). The only thing i don't like about them is the lack of a wheel. Apple has that on the ball, i really miss that thing. However, it doesn't compare for the amount of features the iriver has. Amazing piece of work. Flash to korean firmware though, American firmware sucks. I really do suggest you change your thoughts of ipods, i used to have one and i am so glad i got rid of it. Oh, and H320's are only 285 on amazon. 20gb Ipods are a constant 300.
