gigabeat vs ipod display

so i was interested in the gigabeat. but the thing is that the screen is only 65000 colors. yesterday, i watched a video clip on my friends ipod, and it looked great. i think the ipod has around 250000 colors?

so the question is, can the video for the gigabeat compare to the ipod? will it look as good?

ipod and gigabeat have same colors.

In reply to: gigabeat vs ipod display

the ZVM has the big amount of colors, the gigabeat and ipod both have 65,000 colors.

The ipod screen is .1 inches bigger than the gigabeat screen, but the gigabeat has widescreen.

they both will look fine.

amazon is incorrect

In reply to: really

if you look around, you will see that only the creative ZVM and some PVP's have 262,000 colors. There are also many shots comparing the screen of the ipod to the ZVM. you can see a pretty big difference.
