This player really has a great set of features starting with the interface. The interface is very user-friendly, since it is easy to learn and straightforward. The menu system may be navigated very easily and also very smoothly. I would say the iRiver has really hit the nail on the head in terms of usability with this player, and I would give it a 10 out 10.
Transferring music to this player is easy with the use of Windows Media Player 11, which is included in the box. Here is the full list of what you will find in the box:
The Clix player
earbud headphones with foam covers
software (Windows Media Player 11)
You get everything you need to begin transferring music to your player and listening to music on it. The one accessory that I highly recommend purchasing separately is the cradle dock station. This will run about an extra $50-60; it gives the user a place to set the player when it is not being used.
This docking station has multiple functions. One of these functions is to recharge the player. It also has built-in speakers, so the user may play music through the docking station via the player. The docking station also has a USB output so that you may make transfers while the player is docked. The final feature of this docking station is the alarm button on top, which allows the player to be used as an alarm clock. This is a really cool feature, because it allows the user to wake up to whatever songs they want; it makes a great back-up alarm if the power goes out. The docking station also includes a remote for hands-free operation of all of the player's functions.
The Clix 2 GB is much more than just an MP3 player. It has a built-in FM radio, which allows the user to have up to 20 presets. The built-in microphone enables the user to record voice messages. This player has an integrated calendar and alarm clock. You'll also get a very cool SRS WOW audio option, which enhances the sound of the music being played. On top of all that, it supports flash games which can be played directly on the player.
The 2.2 inch LCD screen is awesome; it has a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels. You can upload pictures onto this player to use as screensavers, or you can use one of the included screensavers. Photo browsing and storing is excellent, and is among the best in its class for MP3 players.
If you like to go beyond still shots with your MP3 player, then the Clix player will satisfy you with its video options. This player supports MPEG4 video, so videos from your computer must be converted to this format before being uploaded to the player. I recommend using the iriveter software for converting all of your video to MPEG4 format, because it is quick and easy. The video playback on this player is surprisingly good, and video moves pretty smoothly.
The minimum operating system requirement for this player is Windows XP. The player comes with a pretty standard one year warranty which covers service and support.
