Ebay has ones called Mercury for about $20, i have 2 and they are great. They hold about 120 songs each.

People don't like Dave Mustaine because he created something that owned Metallica in just about every single aspect of thrash metal.


it's true

I still think the I-POD is great even though many people hate it. Bu tanyway, my friend has a pretty good sony 20 gig thing. Its alright, but I think the I-POD is the best. It is easy to use, and I have had mine for four years and havent had a problem.

why to get an ipod if you can get a 2 gigas cheap no mark 50 bucks mp4 player?
If you are an elitist of quality, ok. But I don't see why to spend THAT much in an IPOD while you can get a 2 gigas mp3/mp4 player for 50 US$ =\

wow that's the fist person i've ever heard who had an ipod that didn't break within months!

My iPod lasted two years, it still works, but I upgraded to a bigger one because I filled up the 20 GBs.

When you're looking at iPods and Creatives, the only differences (aside from looks, software, etc.) are that the Creative displays more colors on the screen, and has a radio and voice recorder.

I personally like iTunes and the looks of the iPod as well as its navigation and interface. I can't say the same for the Creative. I used one of my friend's and I hated it.

I would go for the iPod.

you left one thing, the price. with ipods you pay for the brand name

I reckon you should go with the Creative Zen, my sister has one and it's really good. She's never had any problems.
#20
I don't know why everyone hates the ipod so much. They are in my experience by far the easiest of all the mp3 players to use. Get an ipod.

i had a creative zen touch, but are there any like that but newer?
i want 20 gigs at least
#24
I have a sony circle thing. The battery life is outstanding and It refuses to break. But sonic stage is so annoying. I wish I could just drag and drop mp3's into the device instead of converting into some weird format through the program supplied.
WHY DID I BECOME A HOBO!?

zunes seem kinda bulky to me, ipods get outdated too quickly they seriously come out with a new one every 6 months to a year. i think they plan the obsolency. they had the mini, then a 6 gb mini, then a little while a nano, a year later a new nano, and now iphone. they're probably gonna come out a with a new iphone at the end of the year that has like a coffee cooker or something
#28
get another creative
I hope it doesn't seem, like I'm young, foolish, and green.

As someone else said, with an iPod you mainly pay for the brandname. Go on, make the wise choice..... go for a Creative Zen Vision M...... DO IT NOW.
#31
I have a ZenVisM, and I am honestly very happy with it.
Not having owned an iPod, I can't say which is better.

I hate iPods.

Overpriced, pieces of crap IMO. Much better players for cheaper out there.

I have a 30G Creative Zen Vision: M. It cost me about.. £150?-something like that, but it was cheaper than the 30G Ipod video... anyway I love it! It's easy to put songs/videos onto. I bought some Senheiser headphones and the sound quality is great. The only thing Ipod has over it is the clicky wheel, as the navigation on the Zen takes a little while to get used to. I think you should go for the Zen.

thanks a lot for the link, atm im decidin between teh sony one or the zen. and thanks a lot to everyone, this is why i love ug, theres very few flamers and trolls and most people are genuinly nice people. i think it must have something to do with playing guitar....
#38
You people are idiots. If you actually looked up the prices, you would see that all three 30 GB mp3 players cost $250.

Best Buy:
iPod
Creative
Zune

Circuit City:
Creative
Zune
iPod
(They're all the same without the sales going on)

You're not paying any more for the Apple name than you are for the Creative name.

The Zen is a fairly good unit, my dad has one

the iAudio was good when I got it but thee new video iPod will be better....
