The nomad's advantage is that it has all that memory for a low price, it's a good value, allbeit big and ugly. But 30 gb for $220 is a good deal. If you have a ton of music you might actually want this one.
I can choose between the Creative Zen Micro, Creative Zen Touch, iRiver H10, and Creative Nomad. My only real requirement for the player is one that can work as data storage. I want to be able to take all my music off my computer, and then transport it to another. I am getting a new computer and would like to kill two birds with one stone, move all my music and have an MP3 Player. I would really like to stay away from the Creative Nomad, but if need be that's what I will get. Thank You all very much.
