MP3 Players

Anyone know who has the best prices, and if any are still available that don't do video.

Im looking for a 60 GB mp3 player that does not do video and is not an ipod.

Re: MP3 Players

In all honesty, the iPod is one of the better ones on the market.
You can get the iPod photo for a a good deal used.
Zune is only 30GB, The Zens from my experience tend to suck, and do not last very long. Archos makes one, I had a 20GB for a while, but the cost was a tad high for me when they 2st came out. Toshiba has the Gigabeat 30& 60 GB models, I haven't seen anything negative about them, they use the same hard drives as the iPods.

Re: MP3 Players

Im sure the ipod is one of the better ones, but on general principal I wont get one. I know its stupid, but what can I say. I'm quirky.

My friend bought a Creative Labs one a few years back, I think it was a nomad, I'd like to find one of those, his will slow down songs, which would be helpful

>_> *_* my friend use to be like you, he got a creative labs. Then he tested my ipod and in one week he got one and scrapped his creative labs crap. sorry to say man, yes ipod. Also my friend has a zune which yes is only 30gigs. It is alright but he only got it over the ipod because he has a 360 and he wanted to play the music while playing games

Re: MP3 Players

there are more repair parts available for iPods, the Zen's suck... you can't find anything for them.
My sister has one of the 1st nomads, it lasted all of 6 months and Creative wouldn't support it. 90 day warranty. At least Apple has a 1 year.
I don't recommend the extended plans as they are a scam (plus I repair them much cheaper using the same parts )

Trust me, before I got my iPods, I had (still have) the Rio products, riot and nitrus, the riot is still cooking along, the nitrus again, they wouldn't support it past 90 days when the cornice drive took a dump, their tech told me to slap the player.

Re: MP3 Players

i think you should go with an iPod, repair parts are much easier to find, the software is much better than the competition, simple controls, all that good stuff.

Re: MP3 Players

I'm with ya brother. I HAAAAAATE the idea of getting an ipod. But....my Dell DJ, which I have loved for years has finally gotten tired of being dropped and the hard drive now clunks.....more than it did after the last time I dropped it. Dell reported a 20 hour batt life. and it was at least that. I liked everything about the DJ. But now that I'm sadly in need of a new mp3 player. I have noticed that over the years, many accessories have come out for the ipod. And itunes, which I do like, is set to go with it. So I'm going to wrap duct tape around my head and buy the freakin ipod.

The 1st accessory on my list is this: http://www.bose.com/controller?event...318&src=k15318

We can have a support group for reluctant ipod users.
