Amid a slew of MP3 players of late, iRiver has continued to release quality products that stand out from the rest of the crowd. iRiver’s latest offering, the iFP-180T, is a small compact player. It has dimensions of 31x28.5x82mm (WxDxH) and weighs only 32g without the battery. The player features a green backlit LCD screen, which provides a large viewing area for a player of this size, and can support up to 36 different languages. The main control buttons are recessed into the player and are of a noticeably strong build in comparison to other players. Connectivity is via a USB 1.1 port at the top of the player.

A supplied neck strap can be attached to a swivelling keyring loop. An in-built FM tuner and a microphone support recording of FM radio and voice.

The iFP-180 can support three main file formats: MP3, WMA and ASF. The player is firmware upgradeable through downloads form the iRiver Web site ( to support newer file formats as they emerge. Power is supplied by one AA alkaline battery and continuous playback resulted in approximately 15 hours during the longevity test. Sound quality proved to be great, with a signal to noise ratio of 90dB and a frequency range of 20Hz to 20kHz.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
