It got an Editor's Choice.
But, do you really need to have a that large of a player? And are you really going to watch videos on such a tiny screen? Sure, you can use a hard-drive based player at the gym or while walking. And you can strap it to your arm.
Have you considered a flash-based player? They're a lot smaller and because they're flash-based, no moving parts. And they come in capacities upto 8GB.
Some examples (these support subscriptions, so no iPod):
Creative Zen V Plus:
Sandisk Sansa e200 series:
If you don't care to view photos and videos, the Creative Zen Nano Plus:
I don't own any of these players, so I can't tell you from personal experience how these players sound. And I'm not an audiophile either.
I own several iPods - 30GB video and 4GB pink Nano, among others. I use the smaller and lighter Nano more often than the Video, especially when I work out.
I just wanted to give you something to think about. I hope I didn't confuse you any further.
choices out there. I spend allot of time on my pc since my work is on my pc. I listen to yahoo music allot. I like to watch the videos.Anyhow, I was looking at the mp3 they recommend. The creative zen vision:m looks good. Okay, so here's why I want the mp3 player: I want to start going to the gym or atleast start walking. I want to get an mp3 that I can strap on my arm or place in my pocket or something. Yahoo seems to be the least expensive subscription service. I use to download songs from peer to peer websites to my pc but that scares me now. So, any thoughts on what I should look for? Yahoo gives glowing reviews for creative zen m and even directs you to a website that says cnet gives it raves. But when I went to cnet on my own, I couldn't find the same info. Ugh, this is so frustrating and confusing. If i'm going to spend that much money on something I want it to be worth it. Help
