I need to upgrade from my zen nano which doesn't hold near enough songs on it and I'm deciding between a 30GB ipod video and a 30GB zen vision m. The zen has more features but I only really care about music,videos,and pics. I just want to know which is better and how easy it is to put songs on them.

People seem to like iTunes but I think it's terrible, because of fact you can't get music from it onto your PC, or plug your iPod into someone elses PC. I HEARD that it deletes all your music if you do that.

i love my creative zen, it works great with windows media player and has never given me any trouble. i've had to reinstall windows a couple times since having it and it works great for backing up all my music as you can take ur music off of it later, i could never do that with an ipod.

If you set it up right....Just downloading your music is all you have to do with an ipod cos it does it auto-style.

I had a Zen, and it was alright...


You have to use Creative Media Player though, which sucks ass.

Zen all the way, they're far more durable than iPods, I find them more user friendly, and the sound quality's better too.

It doesnt delete your music it actually copies over if their itunes syncs the music.

Get an Ipod. I have both, and the Zen might have more features, but the videos are choppy and not good quality.

The Ipod on the other hand is great. I love it, wouldnt ever replace it.

And Zune is ****. Im not paying 14 bucks a month for music.

Get a zen, iv had mine for about 3 years now and it still works perfectly, much better value and they play WMA too. And you can change volume whilst choosing songs to que up

Ipods are overpriced peices of ****.
Considering you can get a better, more reliable, and with more features mp4 of the same price and memory, you have no excuse to buy one. Get the Zen.

I had a 30gb ipod video that broke 2 months after the warranty expired. As many of the horror stories go, they're designed to break after the warranty dies. Battery life was appalling, froze every five minutes. Just dont do it...

you need to switch off the synchronisation, after that you can delete all your iTune songs and the songs on your iPod are still there. same goes for plugging it into another pc. its also worth downloading software that lets you take music off the iPod and onto the PC

The ZEN is the BEST thing ive ever bought, it has more features and happens to be cheaper
(because of the name of course) than any dumb ipod

go to you local Best Buy and do a side to side comparison of and ipod and Zen
I am almost certain you'll pick a Zen


Zen is also much more compatible with a PC

in think most people buy Ipods just for the name,

if you dont want to be a conformist buy a ZEN!!!

I just bought a ZEN vision M a week ago, picked it over the ipod 30 gb, the great thing about the zen is, NO ITUNES, and you can get music from almost every where, mainly rhapsody, bestbuy music, realplayer music store, etc, etc.....everything else is the about the same in comparison to the ipod except the battery life for a movie lasts half an hour more than the ipod.

Remember to buy the warranty no matter what, for the zen, my warranty will give me the new version for free when it comes out , all I gotta do is swap it with my old one, not sure if that is featured with Apple warranty or not.

lol, cause thats the most important thing

But seriously, I have a Zen Vision and I absolutely love it. The only problem is its a bit big, but for what I use it for its great. My dad and bro both have iPods and I cant stand iTunes at all, it ends up running slow and I don't like it as much as the Window Media Player.

haha yeah if you have a PC get the vision.
if you have a mac get a ipod.

that's why apple products are so good. they were made to work with each other.
ipod, itunes, mac. it all runs so well together. they make both the hardware and software for ultimate awesome-ness.

but yeah if u have pc stay away from apple.
itunes sucks on pc as well.


get a zune or creative or whatever else made for pc.

i actually own the zen, and the only downside is that it doesent support mp4 video, if u can deal with that, get the zen
#38
couple questions about the zen, might as well ask them here:
can i put my Itunes library into windows media player (or whatever the zen uses)

and also, can i use "DVD decrypter" and "videora" to rip dvd's and put them into windows media player, or do i have to use something else?
