What mp3 player should i buy

by Lemonio / November 9, 2006 10:54 PM PST

i wanted an mp3 player for my birthday. I was looking at different choices. Ipod, Creative Zen, iriver, Sandisk, Zune and so on. I'm not sure what i should buy. Id rather have something with a lot of space. Radio or video or photos and so on would be nice although i don't have to have them. Please reccomend some mp3 players and say why.

iRiver the BEST

I just say that iRiver has the best suond quality, Crative is just good (not the best, but good) with normal price, iPod better is one of the best, but it's stupid with his itunes (you cant' play there songs from your library on computer)!

i did more research and ipod looks dissapointing. creative zen had the most positive reviews and although zune sounds good i don't really need video or stuff like that if it will cost lots of money in a brand new product at first release before prices go down. please reccomend more

If you're looking for a high-capacity, great-sounding, monochrome-screen, low-cost mp3 player, check out the Zen Touch (pretty old, but I've got it and the extra controls are wonderful and the sound is great).

it depends

the ipod isalways a good choice. although the ipod will only take music from itunes and cant put movies onto the ipod without buying a program, i think, everything else is fairly nice and the battery life is incredibly with 6 hours of video in the new 5G 2.0. the creative zen on the other hand is very nice looking featurewise but the battery life is not as great and there are not as much cases(/hookups) for the creative as there is with the ipod. the toshiba gigabeat also looks nice but its very similar to the creative zen vision m in those same aspects. i was faced with this decision and i got the ipod against my will but im enoying it more then i thought possible. thats my suggestion (to get the ipod, kinda) and i strongly advise it but its ur choice.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
