Creative zen micro VS HP ipod help please!

by jimmy7327 / November 26, 2004 3:14 AM PST

Okay, my mp3 player is finaly starting to have problems on me, and now I'm looking to invest in a new mp3 player, but I am still conflicted on which to get, the ipod is a very nice looking olayer and I've heard it works well also, but the battery is not replacable and after a year it loses its ability to hold a charge, which is a major draw back, aslo I hear that it no longer comes with a cradle or case. On the other hand the new zen micro seems like a very solid player even though it only has 5 gigs compared to the ipods 20 gigs, but I only have 2.5 gigs of music so it really doesnt matter, but the zen aslo features a radio and a replacable 12 hour battery. So anyone have an opinion of what I should get?

The ipod battery issue has been addressed and is on the Apple web site.

Some makers do understand how to take advantage of this gaffe.

I actually like the ipod, but I'm not sure if I want one if the battery will only hold a charge for a year and then I have to pay $107 for a new battery, but is the zen micro a solid player?
