which mp3?

by m3sews / November 20, 2007 12:08 PM PST

I want a mp3 more to use at home than on the move. Our 5 disk cd changer died and I thought it may be better to get a mp3 and docking station than new cd player. I want to be able to just play one group of music from several cds sometimes and a mix of all my music other times, i.e. just Christmas songs or all songs. Is this possible on a unit that you can change the batteries, instead of having to send to unit back when the battery dies?

here's a link to CNET's roundup of some smaller capacity (2GB or less) players that take regular AAA batteries:


If you're looking for something with a larger capacity (30 GB or larger) with a removeable li-ion battery:

Archos 604 or 604wifi (the newer Gen 5 players do not have a removeable battery)

or Creative Zen Vision W

Try the Sansa e200 Series

concerning the removable battery, the Sansa e200 has a user-removable battery, all you need is a philips screwdriver to take the aluminium back off and you're ready to change that battery (this doesn't void the guarantee by the way)
Hope that helped
