User reviews for Diamond Rio 600
7.0 / 10Combined Score
poorly made, bad quality, bot durable, brakes easily wears and chips through regular use
I bought a rio 600 and was extremeley happy with it for the first week or so, i mean who wouldn't be? it had great innovative features such as customisable eq settings and a phat blue back light. I was also very pleased with the fact that it supported WMA format as i feel this to producr much better quality sound then mp3 does, it also enabled me to fit a whole album (instead of just 30 minutes which mp3 allows) of music on to just 32mb of memory. On the surface the Rio 600 appeared to me to be the obvious choice, but the problems occured when a fualt devoloped in the player and the sound had all of a sudden become incoherant and sounded muffled. I had not mistreated the player in any way what so ever so I thought that it must just be a one off fault and immediately arranged for an exchange of the faulty product through the Rio customer care c...
The bad stuff is probably the memory it holds, 32mb.
Now the Rio500 holds 64mb.
But then again you can add more memory to the Rio600, like the Rio500.
Overall I think it's a great Mp3 player. I give it a 4 out of 5 because of the memory it holds, but on all other qualities of it its a great mp3 player. Het I am getting on this Christmas, it sounds great!
eats batteries, very limited memory, and no upgrades to be found
Everyone who complains about the missing backpacks is right. STAY AWAY from this thing until you have absolute proof that there is some way to upgrade. And I don't mean company hype either. The player is great, but without some way to upgrade the RAM or get some sort of rechargeable battery (both promised by S3, but never deliverd), this thing is as good as worthless (almost).
If backpacks existed, I would give it a 4.3
