That's unfortunate. Personally, I have a Nano that's almost 5 years old that still works fine, most my mates have also had theirs for a few years. I'd be surprised if Apple hasn't perfected the Ipod by now.

Why would they perfect it? Then you wouldnt need to buy a new one.

I have the first gen iPod video since like... 2005. There's nothing wrong with the screen

Never get an iPod Classic. Navigating is slow and tedious. I used to have a beasting Creative Zen, but it drowned in my pocket one day RIP

It's only slow if you have it full or have the EQ on.

True, I just don't like the scroll wheel that much. It's possibly just because I'm so used to my iTouch, which is way more intuitive imo.

That makes sense then, the touch screen is a lot nicer.

I have an iPod nano from hella long ago that stil works fine, I probably wouldn't buy any of the new generations, though.

I like iTunes, it's easy to use.

Have I missed the point of this thread? Probably.

Out of those two, get the Sony.

Otherwise get one of the Ipods, they are solid even though Itunes is wank.

If you don't have a Mac, there are alternatives to iTunes.

I use Winamp for my iPod classic, and for my iPhone I use CopyTrans Manager. iTunes takes up a lot of processing power and shit on PCs.

Personal experience - my creative has lasted for years 4 nearly 5. My SONY one didn't last so long, but I did abuse it.

You know the sony one will be pretty damn good, and I have found my creative to be good too. Try and find them in a shop to try them?

Find it yourself. I don't know what you want and what you don't. It's not that much effort to find a 16Gb model on their website, y'know.

It's more common on the older models.

A bit late but i can vouch for the sony. I have a similar player (8gb) from the same model line and its worked well over the year i've had it. The battery life is far superior to most other players I have used...I use mine often and i charge it maybe once a week if its just music. I f you play videos or use the fm radio then it will obviously shorten battery life but its a great player really.
