Okay. I finally need to buy some sort of portable music player. I've been putting it off because I havn't needed it but do now.

so atm I have 2-3 main ideas of what to buy.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-WALKMAN-NWZS739FB-Video-Walkman/dp/B001PLE7KW/ref=amb_link_83380213_1?pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=asin-coop-gp-1-D&pf_rd_r=1JCYCBN21E63RCD5EEBZ&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=466728833&pf_rd_i=560884
it might not be that price as I would buy instore

http://www.amazon.co.uk/New-Apple-iPod-nano-8GB/dp/B001E97GEE/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1238096509&sr=1-3
again price would be more due to buying instore

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-NWZ-S639FB-Video-Player-Tuner/dp/B001FB56PC/ref=pd_cp_ce_1?pf_rd_p=136153791&pf_rd_s=center-41&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B001PLE7KW&pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_r=17HMMDZAJ48EHRPKDF7M

which is best? my mum has an Ipod nano 8gb and I like it but Itunes can be tricky with having to use playlists all the time. and the Sony's seem to have better features and quality from what I've heard but they get little 3rd party support for docking stations etc.

What's your budget? How much memory do you need?


well I wouldn't want to spend over £140 really. so anything under that is good. as for memory it depends on what one is best. I wouldn't need a 16gb ipod cos it can't play vids from iplayer and other sources like that which are what I will use. also 16gb seems like good headroom to have especially if I will use vids

Get an Ipod. A lot of people are going to disagree because of it's popularity, but it's popular for a reason, it's the best thing for the job..

Thats the problem with asking these sort of questions on a guitar forum. Generally, were a breed that likes to against the masses. And thus, often vote for the least mainstream.

Not really, in terms of features.

...modes and scales are still useless.

ipods are good for the reaon that theyre light and that they can store alot of data [ bigger models]. however, they break easily, and ive had issues with the mechinics breaking in the past.


creative products are bigger, but sturdier and i think alittle more reliable then ipods. personally like them more.

dont bother getting a zune. its like the younger less efficient brother of the ipod.

Yeah, I reckon creatives are pretty good, although I don't have one,

why not just get a Sony Ericcson W595 and have an 8gb memory card like I do, works well for me.

I got the 30GB model, that's all i need. I have an 8 GB music library and a 15-20 GB library of movies.


EDIT: Here's a trick to know; hide your porn in the "downloads" folder, nobody will see it at a glance.

The fuze looks amazing, if I were looking for one I'd get that.

I have a Fuze, my only complaint is that I can't go to a band, get a song (which is hard if I don't know what album it is off of, as there is no "All"), and continue to listen to my whole library, it stays within that album from then on.

Other than that, it's great.

iPod. They get a bad wrap, but I've had one I got for christmas in 2006 and it still works fine, even after a cycle in the washing machine.
#25
atm I think its between the Sony and the ipod. they seem to be the best way to go imo. Sony has more features that appeal to me and for double the gigs of an ipod nano they onlycost like £10 more

I can appreciate that they are pretty good but yu get loads of people complaining about faults with them. and having used them they arn't all they are cracked up to be. only reason people don't buy the products from creative,sony and all the others that are sometimes better, is because they havn't been marketed well and don't look as good (not bad though) and they don't have names that stick in your head
