whats really worth the money are the chinese knock offs, you can get like 4gb players for about 50 dollars which have video and audio playback quality like the ipod. everything is drag and drop no special programs needed and no propriatory anything. like 200 dollars is alot i would put it to something worth more like a laptop or a console or computer thats just my own opionion though

Well the Meizu M6 (has a review on this site), is actually pretty good. I don't trust other Chinese brands, but Meizu is good. But I think the Sony is a great choice. Go for it. Other than Sony all I can really come up with is any Cowon (great sound quality). The new Creative Zen is meh. I saw one in person and I'm impressed by the size, but the plastic fells cheap (especially compared with the Sony's, which I've seen in person also. I loved it) I don't know about the Zune 4gig.

Get the A815. it's a nice mp3 player, with the added benefits of awesome sound and nice screen. You can, later, buy the bluetooth adapter and synch it to the PS3, prolly.

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?
