I had one bought for me for a birthday present then the next day I was informed that Rio were not producing MP3 players anymore. I didnt want to be left with a device i couldnt get a decent level of customer help with if it went wrong. Best stick to a brand that is still going strong. Like creative or sony.
I sought advice from this forum on this very subject. In the end I bought the Rio 5GB and I was aware that they were not being made any more. It is a brilliant mp3 player. Compact size, good screen and facilities, very easy to set up, simple to transfer music in various formats, good quality sound, earphones OK, battery lasts well, charges up quickly. All in all an excellent player. Get it! You will not be disappointed.
Hello, I've bought a Rio Carbon about 6 months ago and found it to be one of the best purchase I've made in a long time. The sound is superb and it's better looking and longer battery life than the current Apple nano. On top of that, I have an hearing impairment so volume and quality of music is very important to me. In my view, Rio outdid all the Ipods in these aspect.
