Post by: tenspeed on November 21, 2006, 06:30:44 AM
I have an H320, I use it for music and videos.
It is really worth it get Rockbox, is it THAT much better?
What other significant features would make me concider it? ???

It it THAT much better for music playback but doesn't do video with sound (yet).

Why don't you just read the website before asking every basic question in a new thread? There's a FAQ, and that covers all your questions.

I have read about it but I wanted some opinions from people who use it.

If you're asking what significant features it has, it's pretty clear you haven't read very much.

I'm not asking about the features, I'm asking people opinion on how good they think it is. You can't ask a manual that...

I think it's very good. I installed it the day I got my H320, and haven't looked back.

Anything else?

You asked specifically in your question what other features might make you consider it. I'm sorry, but we can't read your mind and know that you didn't mean to ask that.

I'm not asking about the features,

Sure looks like you're asking about features.

And you can find a very informative page in that respect here:  http://www.rockbox.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/WebHome?topic=FeatureComparison

Is Rockbox worth it?  Yes.  To me.  I can't tell you whether it would be worthwhile to you.

I think rockbox is totally worth it, for both its recording and playback versatility.  

As far as recording, it is a small and stealthy and reliable device, and a great bang for the buck.

As far as playback, all you have to do is drag and drop files from your computer onto the rockboxed iriver -- so you can play flac, shn, wavpack files.
