Hi Glen,

You make an awesome point dude! I have an H140 and other then the current
voice UI grief I have found it to be an awesome very reliable player. So
much so that I sold all three of my Archos players to that hardware Ninja
George!

I have also held an H340 in my hot little hands but unfortunately it arrived
DOA so I cannot really comment on the functionality. I can say that it was
very similar in size to the H-140.
The H-140 felt like it was made of sturdier material then the H340. There
is one difference in that the H-140 has a short joy stick sometimes called
the nobby button here on this list where as, the H340 just has push buttons.
The leather case that comes with the H140 is much nicer then that of the
H340. In fact, it was hard to tell if the H340 case was indeed leather
because it felt like vinyl. In my opinion IRiver sacrificed quality for
video in the design of the H340.
I hope the rockbox crew doesn't forget about the H-140 because it is a real
little gem if you don't mind monochrome.

I have noticed some Blind users here looking for and getting some iRivers of
the 300 series.340. It was hard to tell if the H340 case was in fact
leather.

There you go man...rocker
I know that the 300 series have 2 U S B ports, but aside from that, and the
video capabilities, is there any other good reason to get one?
The hard drives are the same size in the H120/140s , and the 300 series
devices as far as I know.
And many of us would not care for the better display, so are there any other
features that might interest the Blind user?
I know that some Blind users might like the video capabilities, for viewing
with others, or maybe themselves, if they have some usable vision.
But I am just wondering if they are getting the 300s because they are newer,
and not realizing that the H120/140 may meet their needs as well for much
less money?
Maybe the 300 series models have features other than video that I would
appreciate.
I would like better video myself, but I would not care to pay substantially
more fore it.
