We already picked the iRiver Spinn as a Top 100 Holiday Gift Tip as it is one of the few interesting iPod alternatives. Engadget has now published a review of the iRiver Spinn giving it a thumbs up for the X-Factor, but a thumbs down for everyday usability.

Quote from the review: "The music player is just a little disappointing for a device of this stature. Everything is there like on-the-go playlist creation, EQ, and even some fancy options under the hood like altering playback speed, but actually interfacing with the thing requires a lot of drilling into categories and then backing back out, something the player just seems particularly unsuited to do with either its physical controls or the touchscreen. It's great scrolling through long lists with the spin wheel, but that's just not enough. The player also fails to rely on the rich imagery of album art that Zune and iPods have been taking advantage of late -- it's even a bit of an afterthought in the now playing view."
