d) none of the above
I'm a poor college kid, so I really can't afford a dedicated MP3 player. I use my Dell Axim PDA and a memory card. It isn't as trendy as an iPod, but it works just as well, and even is more functional than an iPod would be. I'd rather save my money for a Xbox 360 anyhow.

PS: Good luck on the whole blogging thing.

I have an 5G iPod 60GB. Love it.

Before that I had an iPod mini 4GB.

My MP3 player is a (portable) CD-player which can read mp3s from a CD.

Never got into the mp3 player craze. Since I work at a computer all day I just store them on the machine and beyond that I have an mp3 disc reader in the car.

My MP3 player is embedded on my Sony Discman. I wish I could have an iPod like yours :)

I have a Zen Micro that I haven't used in a while. It's a great device, but now I have something better.

My Pocket PC Phone. Sprint PPC-6700.

It carries 1GB of music everywhere I go. It can stream every piece of music and video from my PC using ORB at full quality over EVDO at home, work, and anywhere in the Seattle area. It can also connect up over WiFi.

If I'm outside the EVDO coverage area, and don't have WiFi, I still always have a 1X connection that can stream the same media at a reduced bit rate.

Oh, did I mention it can stream Live TV from my Media Center?

It came with a great set of earbuds that double as a handsfree headset.

Who needs storage? I have a network.

I use ptunes on a Treo650 Why carry more hardware around than is necessary? and with the 1G SD cards plenty enough choice for one day.

I have a 40Gb iPod. It's fun to use, but to be honest I've found it a little irritating at times parts. I wrote about it here.

Ipod 5G with Vid of course.....Steve Jobs will control us all....

iPod photo, 60GB. Second iPod, as I outgrew my 10GB after 18 months. Love it.

I try to like other players, but they just... ick. But then I have the same feeling when using Windows, so that's not surprising.

I have an iPod nano 4GB black and an iPod mini 4GB silver. The mini is awaiting being sold on ebay.

In my life I've owned 5 iPods, 40GB 4G, 512MB shuffle, 4GB 2G mini silver, 4GB nano black.

I've also owned countless other macs (got 5 up and running in this house atm)

I have used both a Zen Touch 20GB and a 4th gen iPod 20GB. I prefer the zen hardware (mainly because there is more choice out there for music stores and it supports windows media file).. but i prefer the itunes software cuz it just works well enough - its not great - but then it doesnt crash like my creative jukebox software :( oh and using windows media 10 to manage everything was useless - the software was so unintuitive.

Scoble's son, no fair you get traffic just because he linked you lol.

Anyway, I am 19, and I love my 1 GB Creative Muvo TX FM, it has a radio, it has a voice recorder, my favorite reason, main reason ipurchased it actually because it acts like a usb key. Just take out the mp3 module from the battery pack, and boom you have a usb key. Drag and drop MP3's onto it (and WMA's if your into that) and it will play perfectly! Even comes with an arm badn so you can use it while running.

You should ask yourself weather you want a solution like this, or something like a hard drive based MP3 player that stores an entire lifes collection worth of music.

If you want this option then i highly highly recommnd the iAudio X5. My friend just got one the other week, and it is a solid product, much more so then an ipod.

Here are links to review:

Creative Muvo TX FM: http://reviews.cnet.com/Creative_MuVo_TX_FM_256MB/4505-6490_7-30906242.html

iAudio X5: http://reviews.cnet.com/Cowon_iAudio_X5_20GB/4505-6490_7-31383684.html

both of those links are video reviews so you can actually see people using it and get an idea how big it is.

Enjoy mate!

I have a 30GB iPod and a 1GB iPod Shuffle. The Shuffle is only used when cycling, my trusty 30GB one is going to be exchanged for a new 60GB iPod.

 
At 5:02 AM, Blogger Jess said...

I have a zen micro. The battery is really bad as it barely lasts 2hours and can't be charged up unless it has completely run out. It's only 2 months old. Anyone else had this problem or have I just received a duff one?

 
At 5:25 AM, Blogger Sean said...

I have a Dell DJ (Gen2) 20GB player. Works well, has an interface very similar (actually identical) to the Creative interface. Solid, fairly inexpensive MP3 player. I use it mainly becaus eit plays WMA files.

 
At 5:47 AM, Blogger Denise said...

I have an iRiver, H10 (20GB)

Our 10 year old got one of those new tiny samsung (YP-T) from her "other parents" and she's getting a Zen from us today (for her birthday)

My two older children are dying for ipods, but with the nano scratches and such I'm trying to convince them that my iRiver is the way to go.

I believe I'll get my 15 year old an iRiver for Christmas.

My latest MP3 player is the original iPod Photo, a 60GB one. It was the first color iPod, first to do photos. I don't know if I'll get the latest iPod, the one that does video. But I definitely want a black iPod nano!

 
At 6:23 AM, Blogger Kodo said...

I currenty use a 3G 20GB Ipod.

 
At 6:37 AM, Blogger zealot said...

I have a Creative Zen Micro. I do not have the battery life issues that the previous writer does. It doesn't last the promised ten hours, but I can easily get 8 on a charge. Plus, it'll take mp3 or wma files (none of the iPod format craziness...it's flexible). Plus, it's got a voice recorder and an FM tuner.

There are some small changes I'd make to the design (like changing how to adjust the volume, but I overcame that by using volume-adjustable headphones).

It holds 5 gigs, which is plenty of space for me. I'm told that 5 gigs on a Creative holds much more than 5 gigs on an iPod because of the compression format that iPods require.

I bought a 4GB nano a month ago. I love this thing! I recommend the Invishield for it.

I had a Dell Jukebox (15GB) when they first started doing it, ended up getting a 6GB iPod Mini and love it.

I have a 40GB Nomad Zen Xtra. A little old-school but it's never once crashed, flickered or rebooted.

I have a 3G 40GB iPod, I love it. The 5Gs are appealing, but not fitting with my current portable media desires.

 
At 8:10 AM, Blogger Kevin said...

I have a 20GB iPod. I've tried the Dell DJ and iriver H10 and was dissatisfied with both. In terms of usability and interface design, the iPod is the only way to go.

Patrick, now you just need to get an iMac to really piss your dad off. ;)

 
At 8:34 AM, Blogger Nishi said...

iPod hands down, before buying a MP3 player I did my research. Apple's iPod is the best MP3 player out there.

Also check your budget, how much do you want to spend on an MP3 player?

Also iTunes is a very easy to use software, which recognizes the iPod as soon as you connect it.

Hands down "iPod" rocks!!

I've got a Zen micro and in less than a year, I've had to send it back twice and each time it returns I've had to reload my music - which isn't as easy when using a music organizer other than iTunes.

First Gen iPod -- still awesome

I have a 20GB 2nd Gen iPod & a 1GB iPod Shuffle. And, I'm planning on getting the 60GB 5th Gen iPod Video sometime in the next month or so (and will sell my 2nd Gen iPod).

I have a Creative Zen, it's very nice.

 
At 1:55 PM, Blogger Chris said...

I have the Creative Zen and take it with me just about everywhere. My only complaint is that it's a little hard to navigate, but considering the iPod was more expensive and had less capacity, I think the Zen was a much better purchase. I can deal with the navigation if it means having more songs with me for less $$

Good to see you have a blog going. I suggest you make more podcasts. I loved those ones you did with your dad but i think just ones with you would be good. Your dad seems too enthusiastic about it for me....

Hi, I've enjoyed visiting your blog. I am trying to get my mp3 players site up and running. At the moment I am concentrating on the Zen Touch and Zen Sleek. Sadly, the Zen micro does not appear to still be available from Creative.

I've certainly got some way to go before that site meets the standards of your blog.

Have new Creative Labs Zen Nano Plus (1G) and it's been working really well with my challenging life style. It's flash memory so doesn't skip when I'm jogging or biking. Has FM Radio - and you can record programs, or even meetings or memos. And you can plug it in and drag and drop - even data files you want to transfer.

I don't have much money to waste and I've heard mp3 players can be really fragile so I thoroughly researched them and then lucked into a deal where I was able to get one for just $75 after rebate. I've put all of the information in this listing on eBay. Just enter item number 9717288495 in a search window there.

Anyway, I have about 300 songs on here and they say you can put 500 on in WMA format. It came with a case, belt clip, sports arm band, Creative Labs earphones; in-line connector; 2.0 USB line; software for coordinated player on your computer and access to all the MS PlayForSure media sites; and a couple free Audio Media files - I got a book and a Radio program I wanted for a long time. The player itself is about the size of one of those rectangular Bic lighters. For me - I also like the AAA Battery idea. You can get rechargeables if you like, but I'm usually so on the go, I don't remember to keep recharging things - so I just pop a new battery in - runs about a week on mine - about 18 hours. The sound is outrageous for something like this. But that's where Creative's experise is - they've been producing high performance sound cards like Sound Blaser and speakers for years. Great Audio!

try it out! See what you think. Check out my research on the eBay listing. Hope you can get one. Lemme know?

Forever, T.S.
