They are the same.
They just look different bar the fact that the 895 comes with a one year sub to AudioFeast (i think).

Edit: Links 795 895

and the AudioFeast thing

They both came out around the same time. I chose the 7xx series because I felt it looked more stylish on the front. Just my opinion.

Thats true. It's almost always in my pocket anyways. Let us know how your purchase goes.

I used to have a ifp-7xx and it was a quite nice player, except the fact that there was a bug in the firmware which caused the player to sometimes restart when playing mp3-vbr files. It might have been fixed since I sold my ifp, otherwise it can be ‘fixed’ by using the eq. There’s a thread about it somewhere on this board.

Anyway, except the flaw in the firmware it’s a great player!

well i got it... only problem i've run into is for some reason it won't let me add another 45MB of songs when the thing has like 58MB free

and i don't think this vbr mp3 problem you speak of will affect me too much... there are only 2 mp3s on the player, both CBR... everything else is q5 vorbis

I've been using VBR with no issues, so latest firmware probably fixed it. My recommendation necropimp: Max out the firmware updates at iriveramerica.com, and then go to iriver.com (the world site) and download the UMS update which allows your player to be used as a removable drive (no more software needed for xfer). The downside is that you can't use the software anymore. Just windows explorer. The only thing the software was good for was setting the FM stations anyways, heh.
