Looking for a cheap video player...

by TechyDRGuy / November 20, 2007 6:33 AM PST

I have an old iPod Nano. I've been wanting a video player, but I don't want one that is too expensive since I'm probably going to just be watching videos on it. I was thinking about the Creative Zen V Plus, but are there any other players around it's price range that I should consider?

Well I'm not sure I really want to try a Chinese knock off. The Meizu seems nice.

the Archos 405 is good for that
it only comes in 2GB for $140 but comes with an SDHC slot so its expandable

a better idea might be the 404 camcorder instead of the 405
on Amazon they got it for $180. Its 30GB harddrive and even has a nice little camera built in for pics and video taking

If you want flash look also look at the Creative Zen and Sansa View
