best mp3 player?

i realize the ipod thing is gonna get mentioned a lot here, but please be subjective.

i know there's a lot of good mp3 players, and my brother got a good one recently. something "river" or whatever. it's got lots of cool features, though it can't carry that many songs.

you people should help me out. what should i get?

No pics available right now but I have A rio nitrus for the price (150) and how many songs it holds (1.5 Gigs) it was well worth the buy for me.

my friend has a rio, and you can store about 30 songs on it. i took it with me to europe now, and it was alright, 7ust not nearly enough storage space.

come on people, i want suggestions!

what my brother got was an 'i river', and it kicks ass. i want something i can also connect easily to my car, so keep that in mind.

don't deny me, people, or you will b

mm ive had a 30GB ipod for 2 years now and it has worked fine, it froze once about a month after i bought it but it unfroze quickly other than that i havent had any problems ( i have a mac laptop if that makes any difference) the only problem i would say is that 30GB is not nearly enough space for my music collection but i connect the ipod to the car easily and it has withstood many falls on concrete floors so for me personally the ipod has been wonderful

shit, 30 gigs isnt nearly enough? wow, you've got a lot of music.

there's no way i'd need that much, i wouldn't think. do you put everything you have on there?

The worst thing about the iPod is that it just has too many options. I can never make up my mind about what to hear.

I heard the iriver is good. The ipod shuffle is also good and decently priced.

If can't afford one of the higher end ones, I'd suggest going with one that has the slot for a SD/MMC card, I think the rio ones have expansion slots.

In terms of connecting to your car, Belkin makes a good radio transmitter. It's about $15-20, plugs into the headphone jack and you can set it to one of the lower end "blank" stations.

Mine was given to me, I have no idea how much it is. A Creative mp3 player, you can make voice recordings in wav files which I find useful when I am writing to see how it reads. Also has radio and... other stuff I have not explored but I get the impression it is a basic and functional mp3 player. Still, better to get one than lose all of one's U2 collection on an aeroplane.

I was given a Dell DJ 20 gig. Holds 10,000 songs, and it has worked great. Never had any problems with it. I'm planning to buy an iPod soon, but I can't make up my mind whether I should buy the U2 edition or the iPod mini.

i have an ipod shuffle

it only holds about 125 songs, but that seems to be more than enough for me

i never seem to be anywhere long enough to need even that many

plus, the price was nice, and it's pretty

it may not be what you're looking for, but i at least i have a picture
