I would like opinions on MP3 players. I would like one with an FM tuner as well. Does it make a huge difference if you get one that requires you to change batteries? I don't really care about the format. And, I don't need one with massive amounts of space. Any help would be appreciated.
TOP RATED Mp3 players are :
* Apple iPod 30GB (with video) : about 300$ battery life 900min no radio
*iRiver H140 : about 370$ with radio
*Creative Zen MicroPhoto : about 300$ with radio- 8G- battery life 895 min
• Archos AV 500 : about $598.00 - $740.00 - Battery Life: 3000 min-no radio - 30 g capcity
• Apple iPod nano : about $233.00 - $270.00 - Battery Life: 840 min - no radio - 4 G capcity
a lot of creative products have integrated fm radio. i like their zen micro (not photo). mines only 5gb but its still a lot of tunes. always good for when im in my car listening to sirius radio and i discover a new band or rediscover one i used to listen to. then i can upload a bunch of stuff there. i got it instead of an ipod cuz i was sick of everyone blabbing about how its so awesome. personally i think its okay, nothing special. and the not being able to remove the battery sucks too. when it really craps out you have to shell out like over $50 to get it repaired. and all the accessories out there for it which are all overpriced. the usb-ac charger the apple puts out is like 30 bucks! i got one off of ecost.com for 5 bucks and it works perfectly.
i know it turned into a rant about ipod but they are way to expensive and doesnt come with nearly as many features as a creative mp3 player. so just keep your options open and you might find yourself a real beauty. also head over to cnet.com as theyve had a lot of mp3 columns as of late
