Multimedia, AV Everytime we feature a multimedia device review here at OSNews the question is always the same: "...but does it support OGG?". Well, this time we do have such a device in our lab to test out for you. Geeks.com sent us in the iRiver E10, a powerful multimedia music and video player.

I think it's nice

I have the E10 since December and I think it's great. Most of my music is vorbis so I was looking for a vorbis compatible player. The E10 hasn't had a single problem with any vorbis file I've thrown at it.

I only had a look at the windows media manager that comes bundled and I hated it almost instantly, nothing would work right. I'm using the E10 only under linux and it does work as a UMS device. Only difference is that once I fill it with new music I have to run easypmp (pmplib) to update the database - easy and takes only about 15 seconds with 6GB of music.

The battery life is great and the interface is weird at first, but you soon realise that it's really intuitive.

The only things I don't like about it is lack of gapless playback and the proprietary cable, I'm being really careful not to lose it.
