Best player, money no object

by dougbma50--2008 / December 1, 2004 12:26 AM PST

I am happy to pay a bit more to get a great player that I will have for some time. Last Christmas I got the 20G IPOD figuring, how could I ever go over that. Well, guess what, I backed up my entire library and I'm over it. Now when I try to add something I have to first delete stuff that I think I won't listen to.

So, key factors are hard drive space, size and battery life. I have seen 60G and even some 80G and 100G. The 80 and 100 I only saw on Ebay so I'm not even sure if they are real. 40G should be enough for my music although I'm happy to pay a few extra dollars for the piece of mind of having some extra space. Music is the main need but if I can get video in a similar size unit just costing a bit more then I would definitely consider it. That being said, I saw a post of one of the video players and the user said they got 1hr tops when watching video despite the manufacturers rating. I do like the IPOD and have been leaning towards the IPOD Photo 60G but I am a techie guy so if one of the others offers cool features then I would definitely want to consider it.

Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
