I'm looking for a portable media player and I don't know which one to choose. Either the 30 gb ipod video (300 dollars) or the Creative Zen Media Player (330 dollars).
I only know a few things about each one for instance with the ipod you can only use itunes to store the music and can only put Quicktime format movies on the ipod. Also, What music and videos you have on your ipod must also be on itunes for when you plug the ipod to you pc it automatically updates the music on the ipod to match itunes.
Now with the Creative Zen Media Player, its pretty much the opposite of the ipod video. It can store a lot more formats for the video and music, but not quicktime and can use other types of media player on your computer to store the music, but yet again not itunes. It also has an am/fm radio which you can record from directly to the hard drive and a microphone if you feel like going on a monologue. It's also bigger but not much and has a longer battery life for the videos.
Thats pretty much all I have so far. If any of its incorrect can you correct me and most importantly can you help me decide which one to get.
