if you like watching videos, the video is pretty good but the battery life for it is terrible. after a couple of weeks the battery life will probably last 2 hours which is not good enough for me. if ur mostly gonna listen to music, tha nano is probably better to get. thats just my opinion.

Better in your openion. Eveyone is not the same, what may be better for you may be the opposite for him. For instance I think the iPod is better because it suits my personal needs in a DAP better than the Zen:VM.

i'm not questioning you, you're just the first one to not say "ZOMG! My friend has one and it's cool!!11!11!":P

It depends on your activity and your music collection. If you run, DEFINITELY get the nano. If you want all your music at once, get the Video.

Make sure you look at other possibilities too. Explore your options. You may find one that suits your needs better than an ipod. Then again, maybe not.

My Needs?
by daveworld / August 15, 2006 1:35 AM PDT

I look for simplicity over complexity. I think it's a very good player besides its annoying sensitivity issue and size. But it does not work with iTunes, that clever Apple got me traped, but no complaints. You want podcast, you have to use a seperate program. TV shows, music videos, soon movies, seperate program.

Again a good player but the word better is subjective.

Normally I'd say neither and tell you to get the zen vision:m or the sandisk e270 but frankly I've grown tired of trying to persuede people that Ipod's arent the only player there, so like that other guy If you run get the nano, if not get the video, your choice but personally I would get the sandisk

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?
