GADZOOKS Yeah, too bad you can't like take songs off and put new songs on.

I'm not even going to bother with a rolleyes, come on people.

Divisible by Waffle There are bigger MP3 players put out by Zen; I just couldn't afford them, so I went with Nano Plus. Check out their line, though, they use flash memory and are pretty durable.

I've also heard that you can mod iPods so that they just behave like a normal MP3 player when hooked to your computer...but I don't have an iPod, so I couldn't tell you how to do that, or if whoever told me was just bullshitting.

MLE I would get bored because I listen to music about 3-4 hours a day -not counting driving time, and that would mean that's less than 4 days of music by my standards. plus, I have very different music moods, so I would definetly need more. 2 gigs isn't enough for me. I was considering getting the largest i-pod that has flash memory instead of a hard drive. I drop things. A lot.

Fathom Zero I don't know what I'd do with 16 hours of music.

MLE one gig is around 16 hours of music at an average bitrate, or 240 songs on average. that's not a lot.

Divisible by Waffle I have a Zen Nano Plus, and it's pretty fucking badass. If you're like me, all you'll really need is that one gigabyte...assuming, of course, you go by the standard bitrate. Though those things can only play .mp3 and .wma, so beware if you're an Ogg Vorbis faggot like me.

MLE then... just don't use i-tunes?
Feb 25th, 2007 07:14 PM
Fathom Zero I am very, very sure that they can, but I-Tunes can't be used on any other .mp3 player besides the I-Pod.

MLE can't ipods use regular mp3s as well? ;<

These Zen .MP3 players look really good.

zeldasbiggestfan Stay the fuck away from Sandisc. They break. Alot. I had one and it locks up and gave it back. Same thing happened to two other people who had them and it happened to another but it was with an I-pod. Get the Zune.

MetalMilitia I've got a Samsung YP-Z5 and it's a solid player. It only comes in 2GB and 4GB flavors which are small if you have a large music collection but if you don't mind swapping albums around frequently it's not a big problem. Battery life is good and it has a swish interface.

It's hard to recommend though as it's a bit overpriced. I only really bought it out of brand loyalty and this might have been a bad decision considering how much more space you can get on similarly priced players.

Fathom Zero The Zune's got a Wifi thing, though I'm not quite sure what the purpose is.

It can play movies, too!

Actually, I just remembered what the purpose of the Wifi is. I heard your Zune can communicate with other Zunes. I guess you can listen to other people's music.


It says you can share EVERY song gotten through third party methods, i.e. ripping a CD and such, but not every song from the Zune Marketplace.

Honestly, I'm looking at these now that I know more about them.

I had an .MP3 player, it was shit. Do not under any circumstances buy Memorex. I've had friends that have had theirs crap out on them, too.

So I want to buy an Mp3 Player

Ya ya ya I Pod but I'm looking for something that doesn't use gay I Tunes. I've checked out the Zune (I work at Staples so I get to check it out a lot.) and it looks pretty cool. Almost too good, like, there's got to be something sucky about this thing. Theres a Creative one I've been eying, but they're both the same price. The Zune's screen is bigger and I like the FM tuner. Anyone have any opinions? Maybe one I haven't listed here?
