U2 iPod or iPod mini?

my cousin said U2 iPod's impractical. first it's space for mp3s are quite large, and i don't need all that space; it's bulky; expensive.
He suggested iPod mini, it's smaller, cheaper, and it has just enough memory.

but I want a U2 iPod!!!!

anyone of you has a U2 iPod? please tell me your comments about the iPod.

Thanks

I am the proud owner of a U2 iPod. I love love love it. I was wanting an iPod for awhile and was vacillating between sizes - but when I heard about the plans for the U2 iPod I waited and got that.

I am only up to 2815 tracks but with all the enhancements possbile [photos, voice recordings] I can imagine I could fill it up eventually. And I am still adding old CD's I haven't put on iTunes yet.

As for the self cool factor - it's worth it. Every time I pull it out I still look fiddle with it and go 'cool' to myself. Party due to the Apple technology and partly due to the U2 design.

I would take a quick look on how much music you have before you make a choice. I bought a 20 GB (Not U2 ) and thought I would fill it pretty quick. Right now after 1100 songs I am less then a 1/3 of the way through mine. I am starting to think I should have gone with a mini.

Also remember they have the 6 GB ones now too!

I absolutely love mine. I've had it for a little over a month and I'm only up to 1000 songs, but that's only due to space on my hard drive. If I wanted, I could easily fill the rest of it up (which I'm sure I'll do eventually.

I've used it or iTunes at least once a day every day since I've had it. To me, it's essential, plus it's got the cool U2 colors.

Neither.

Get the regular iPod for $50 less than the U2 iPod.

The mini's a huge waste of money.

it used to be, prices have gone down and memory has gone up. I'd say the mini is the best bargain nowadays

Get an iPod Photo, at this rate. A 30 GB iPod Photo costs $349.00--the same price as a 20 GB U2 iPod. You'll at least get a color screen and photo capabilities with the iPod Photo and it's 10 GB larger!

(Of course, I see that you're in the Philippines. I obviously quoted U.S. prices, so you'll have to compare the two. Here, at least, they cost exactly the same.)

I think iPod minis are a waste of money. Too expensive for what you get.

i'd personally forget iPod altogether - the only thing going for it/them is popularity (i.e. to a degree they're future proof) and that you can get one in a U2 livery.

there are better products available that are cheaper, offer more storage, have a longer battery life and have a superior sound quality.

I don't know why I bought the U2 ipod, I didn't know that U2 weren't making any money off of it. Looking back in hindsight now, I wish I had bought the mini ipod, because it would fit more with my lifestyle. I do have a lot of songs so far, but not enough to fill 5,000 to capacity.
I am going to buy the U2 collection as well, because, well, that's quite a deal, all their rare and unreleased stuff for just $100 (IF you bought the U2 ipod of course).
I do like my U2 ipod though. No complaints here. Except that it just lasts for 10 hours. Then you have to recharge it. Can't have it all now can you.

The u2 ipod is a better deal. More space to fit as you gain more and more songs. It also is a piece of u2 memorabilia that you'll be glad you have in the future. Plus, it's a better deal.

Checkout reviews or side-by-side comparrisons with the 'Creative' line in players. If you're fashion conscious you'll go for the iPod, if you want the best sound quality - without any doubt you will choose a 'Creative' player. Creative specialise in building soundcards for PCs.

If I was to choose the iPod it would be only because of the U2 livery.

I believe the Creative Zen Touch (even though an ugly bastard and heavier) has a 27 hour battery life and superior sound quality.

I like listening to mp3s

FM radio to listen to and record
Not that you will ever get tired of your Zen Micro's music library when it can hold up to 3,000 songs. But, if you find yourself in the mood for some 'Radio Ga Ga' for variety, simply tune in to the built-in FM radio. Set up to 32 station presets so you can catch up on the latest sports results, listen to your favorite talk show, or navigate your way out of traffic problems down Route 66. Your Zen Micro will even record your favorite radio shows, so you can listen to and enjoy them later.
