I got a samsung yep flash based player(1gb) but it beats the ipod nano in features. They now have a 2gb yep out that looks like mine and side by side with the nano 2gb it beats it! Video,music,radio,text reader,record radio,record from your voice and record from a external source such as a cd player. Its got good features.
But you want a hard drive player for storage. There not good for running like the flash ones are and HARD DRIVES DO FAIL ON THEM!
A flash player will last longer and is made for movement.
I would not get a ipod other makers have way more features and ipods are ugly next to most of them. Ipods are simple and thats why people like them but I think people like easy function and style now days.
I mean you walk up with your new ipod. Show your friends and they say "Oh I have that one too"....
You want to walk and up show them what yours can do that theirs can not!
I would go for this one:http://www.circuitcity.com/ssm/Creative-La...roductDetail.do
It has a better rating than the ipod does! And it looks cooler to with a radio the ipod does not have! Read the reviews on that site.
I havent checked this site but I like this site for reviews its one of the best.
The itunes and ipod has to much fame when other players are better. I can get songs for 88 cents at walmart.com or I can go to allofmp3.com and get songs for like 10 cents or less for some songs! Who wants to pay .99 cents for a song when you can get it for 12 cents or even 88 cents?
