Thumb Up Need a new mp3 player, and while searching, I fell upon the clix2...

Yep, my ipod is in a coma at the moment. And probably forever. So the two main mp3's I'm now considering are the Sansa Fuze and the iriver clix2. I'm not gonna ask about the Fuze HERE, but I have a few questions about the clix...

1) Is it worth it for the price? I'd probably be going for the 2GB model.

2) Is it a touch screen or just a clicky-thingy? I can't tell in video reviews I've seen.

3) Would the software be Mac Compatible? I know it's Vista compatible, but what about Mac?

4) Is it good for working out in the gym and traveling?

Thanks in advance for your help!

1) Depends on what you think is worth it for that price. I'd say it is.

2) It's not a touch. It's called the D*click interface, which iriver uses on some of it's players. More info at the clix2 review: http://www.anythingbutipod.com/archi...ix2-review.php

3) No. However, you can set the firmware on the device to MSC/UMS. This means it will appear on your computer as a drive with a letter, such as your hard drive. Then you can use iriver's plus3 software, which I believe works on a mac. Even if it doesn't, though, you can always drag and drop your music files onto the drive.

4) Traveling, yes, I'd say so. Gym, depends on what you think. A lot of people like small, wearable players (such as the shuffle, the clip, or the stone) to use in the gym. The clix2 is larger than those players, and so many people might not like it for the gym. You might, however. Try it out and see what you think.

Just a small note: the iriver clix2 is discontinued by iriver. They discontinued it in favor of the SPINN. This doesn't mean that iriver will cut support, oh no. They are still supporting it. And, you can always get help here if you need it .

Sorry for sounding like a n00b, does this mean it's not being sold anymore?

No, some people are still selling it. For example, amazon has the 4gig in stock (1 8gig is being sold by a person, don't know about 2gig). What it means is that iriver is no longer making new models.

Try Advanced MP3 players. I know they had some in stock, and ship internationally.

Well there is the SPINN,LPlayer and E100, the Lplayer looks like the successer to the clix2 but its a bit thicker.

The technical successor of the clix2 (U20) is the SPINN (U30), however, the LPlayer is more similar to the clix2 than the SPINN is. (The LPlayer is the successor of the S10, incase you were wondering)

Just looked at LPlayer. That thing look pretty closer to the clix versions.

SPINN looks ugly. whats with the thing to the side?

I think Im gonna look more into LPlayer if I dont get the clix2.

The thing on the side is the wheel that you literally spin to navigate through your files.
