What kind of MP3 player do you have?

What kind of MP3 players do you people have (if you have one), and are they any good?

Me, I only own a discman with MP3 function. But I don't mind since it almost has all of the same functions of an MP3 player and it's a lot cheaper. The only disadvantage is its size.

thiamshui
erm.. is this thread allowed? Can any moderator reply here?

anyway, mine is a Creative Muvo^2 1.5gb..

I have a rather good discman: Sony D-NE9

HAHA! I have a SanDisk 4GB Mp3 Player, and that rips the pants off of the cheap MP3 cd players.

Transcend T-Sonic 610 1Gb with Fm radio. Neat little beast that's the size of a matchbox and doubles up as a memory stick.

Apple iPod Mini Silver, 4GB. I'm using about half of the space on it currently. I was comparing that to the size of an Apple iPod Nano, it's about the same size but as half as thick.

BTW, this is part of my portable device collection. I have a Palm M100 and a Handspring Visor Deluxe that's not shown.

I used to have a Creative Zen Micro, But now I just use my original Dell Axim with a Memory Card to listen to music.

I used to have a Zen extra, but I did not need the 40Gb space, and needed the laptop drive inside it for extra space.

As of now, I use a really crappy Creative player that is so old it is not even on their site. It has a 1 gig SD card in it though, so it has plenty of music. It is also 1/4 (maybe even less) the size of the extra, so no problem on portability.
TheGeek
I have a Zen Touch, though the "Touch" part doesnt really work anymore so i have to put it on random and just skip through and listen to what i want...which in a way is good cuz usually i cant decide what i want to listen to anyway so having it decide for me is good in a way.

Also, has anyone else had this problem? I was wondering since i know im not under warranty anymore and i need it fixed, how much will it cost me do you think to get the thing fixed?

i like ipod,want to buy but now do not have enough money for it

I've got a Sony Network Walkman. Its small, kinda like the bean, but its memory is a bit small. You have to use the Sony software in Windows to put songs on it, which sucks. But I got it for free in a draw, so I'm not complaining.
Jerimiah40
I've got a 512 MB iPod shuffle. It's extremely small, holds plenty of songs, and has a great battery life. The only downside that I can find is the need to constantly change what songs are on it, as it doesn't hold a whole lot of songs.
The only MP3 player that I'd rather have would be either an iPod nano or an iPod video. Both are extremely small and slick, and they come in black!!! They also hold way more of my music collection.

I have a MobiBlu DAH-1500i. It's boasted to be the world's smallest MP3 player (1 x 1 x1 inch) but I'm not sure it is. Anyway, I got it after reading an article about it in Popular Science. Now I'm trying to program my own firmware, but I'm not having much luck.

Most MP3 players are terribly overpriced, and I'm not bothering to get one on eBay.

I currently have this Ipod player, this is an excellent mp3 player. i simply love it Razz

iPod 5G with Video 30GB:

Like every iPod that has come before, this “iPod with video” is a surprisingly awesome music player, surely smaller than you’d imagined, better feeling in your hand, and just plain cooler than the sum of its features.

But because of its increasingly ambitious design, it will be reviewed differently by consumers with different tastes. With each finding things to like and dislike. For instance, as a digital music player, it is unquestionably superior to each of its full-sized predecessors, but it also drops support for certain top-mounted accessories that have become extremely popular. Similarly, it is even better at displaying photographs than last year’s iPod photo, but remains slow at direct-from-camera photo transfers, and drops compatibility with two of the iPod’s three bottom-mounting photo add-ons. And as a movie player, it is several major steps shy of what video fans have been hoping for.

Which of these perspectives is right? For me, All of them. Your appreciation of the new iPod will depend precisely on the lens through which you view it. If you are a new iPod buyer looking for a “music player with video as a bonus,” as Apple has pitched it, you will love it. By the same token, if you are expecting a sophisticated portable video player, you will most likely be disappointed.

Since 2004, iPod boxes have continuously shrunk in physical size, and even dropped the exciting “origami art” unfolding process that once hid each iPod and its accessories in separate compartments for the user to discover. But like the iPod nano, the full-sized iPod has largely recovered in class from the multicolored silhouette boxes released last year.

The fifth-generation iPod’s box is a slightly larger facsimile of the nano’s: a shallow matte black outer enclosure with silver foil iPod and Apple logos, plus a top marking of the iPod’s hard disk capacity, song storage, and PC + Mac compatibility. On one large side, Bono from the rock group U2 sings into a microphone on the iPod’s screen, while the song Feel Good, Inc. from Gorillaz plays with album art on the other. The new iPod’s slim profile is shown on one thin outside, an Apple logo on the other. If you purchase a black-bodied iPod, the unit on the box is black, otherwise, it’s white.

In a move that should delight iPod owners, Apple added one other unexpected new item into the box: a simple gray and white neoprene case. Users have previously disliked the cases that were included with iPods. But as the 5G iPod shares a controversial physical design trait with the scratch-attractive iPod nano - namely, a thick clear front surface that can show more fingerprints and scratches than 3G and 4G iPods - the inclusion of a case is very much appreciated. And by Apple standards, this is a good one: made from the same vulcanized material as the iPod nano Armband, it’s thin but not too thin, embossed at the top with the iPod logo, and stitched on the sides to snugly hold the 5G inside.

The most notable piece of hardware missing from the new iPod’s box is a wall charger. a part that has been included with every full-sized iPod since 2001, but gradually disappeared from other models over the past year.

Thats all for now.

I have a 30GB iPod with Video. I got it for Christmas last year, and it's one of my prized possessions. I had a house full of people arguing with me about it when I told them I wanted it. It took about two months of me having it and showing its capabilities off before everybody who originally argued with me was jealous. It's a pretty awesome little device.
cavey
I have a Creative Zen Nano Plus - 1Gb.
Its small (perfect!). you can add songs like an external harddrive. No extra programs needed. You can sort your music in folders +++
Uses AAA-batteries.
Joe944
I use my PSP as my mp3 player. Not quite as effective as a standalone MP3 player but breaking out Lumines when you are tired of listening to music is pretty awesome.

Once the prices drop a bit I'll pick up a 2GB memory stick and that will suffice for mp3's.

I have a Dell MP3 player. It works just fine.

I had a VisualLand 512mb mp3 player (a cheap one from ebay) which died (think the battery leaked too much, not paying for a new one) after not a great deal of use.

When thinking about buying a new one (ipod knock off from ebay again Smile I filled out a survey at work & won an Ipod Nano!!! 2Gb, fantastic! Would be nice to have a radio (not buying a $75 genuine ipod attachment when i can buy a whole new radio unit for about $10).

But then again, free is free!!!

Has anyone put ipodlinux on their nano? Aiming to do it but wondering if I can still use itunes with it?

Yes you can put ipodlinux on your nano but it's unsafe as ipods from the 2G or 3G onwards are not officially supported by iPod Linux so you'll have to find some alternative way to install ipodlinux on your nano. I tried installing ipodlinux on my ipod video but the firmwave got screwed up. In the end I had to restore the whole firmwave... Sad
exarkun
well, mine is a small one, about the size of a iPod Nano. However, it has no brand on it, and I wondered why Rolling Eyes . But, it can play videos in .amv format, and the graphics were good too.
thuganomics
! I got a creative muvo v200, this thing is same size as IPOD Nano but 3x as thick =\ The sound quality is excellent even though when you use lame head phones that are 3 years old LoL. I bought this for $120 Canadian at XMAS sales. O btw, this baby holds 1GB.
The bad thing is that this thing cant computer charge so you have to buy cheap battery that lasts for 3-5 hours !

I am using my Nokia 6680 mobile phone with 1Gb multimedia memory card as MP3 player. It has loudspeaker aswell as stereo headphones.

Cool. I was thinkijng about getting an mp3 phone. I also want a camera on it too. That combo is still quite expensive here.
anthonygerbils
well i got a creative zen micro and it so cool the best as it has a long battery life and can hold loads of songs as it 4-5 gig and it is also a removeable disk for holding just about everything

I have an Ipod mini. It was excellent in the first 6 months of listening.

Pros: Great for transfering files from one computer to another (I used to download and transfer torrents from my school computer to my home computer when I had no inet access). Great sound, has an equalizer.

Cons: Less than 8 hours of battery life (To get 8 hours you have to set on one song at a constant low volume with no EQ), Crappy headphones, and worst of all the battery lasts less than a year! I have to buy a seperate battery now because the Ipod won't charge anymore!
marioflory
Hello there!
I got the first MP3 Player that was available here. It was the Creative D.A.P, Digital Audio Player. It has a 6GB notebook harddrive which makes it kind of bulky and heavy. But it still works. I got it a loooong time ago.
This year my mother bought me a cheap flash Player as a present. With 512MB. The brand will be a chinese no name factory, because it says M-Budget on it, which is a swiss supermarket series of cheap products.
The Flash player is ok, but I had problems copying MP3 on it using Ubuntu Linux, because it also created a recycle bin on the flash partition, which I could not see at first. I have to take care that I empty the recycle bin before I unplug the flash stick.
rusayub
I've got a 512 MB iRiver iFP-795. It's very small, has a long battery life, I can full it with few hours of my favourite songs. And this beatiful player supports a lot of codecs ( MP3, OGG, WMA ). Quality is rather good, I think. T sure it is the best mixture of price and pleasure Smile
edit_text
I started out with an old 32MB Rio and eventually put an extra 32MB card in it. People used to ask me if it was a pager... I next moved to a Classic mini CD MP3 player, It was total crap, but had a huge wow factor. My next move was to use my Dell Axim as an MP3 player but a 2hr battery life just didn't suit me very well.

My life changing momment was when I get a 512mb iPod shuffle. The player was decent, but iTunes was beautiful. If you have never used iTunes, you can not imagine what you are missing. This is the single greatest piece of software I have ever used. Then tragedy struck... I lost it. Sad To this day I keep looking for it, but I'm sure I will never see it again.

After that I began to look at other MP3 players, but I knew I would only be satisfied with an iPod. I know own an ipod 4G 20GB with the b&w screen. I have over 2500 songs and still growing. It is the love of my life, I use it almost every single day.

Hammerfall288
my discman works fine. it plays mp3 cds so pretty much all you need is 10 cd's if you wanted about 1400+ songs or so. it was about 50 bucks and since its a cd player you dont have to recharge it, just change the batteries. if you use it correctly the batteries can actually last 2-3 days too. ive had it for about 5-6 years now and it doesnt skip or anything. only con about it would be that when you press play it takes about 30 seconds to start up. other than that it stomps the crap out of ipods and other mp3 players due to the low cost . it cant, however, be as loud as an iPod.. but its max is loud enough and doesnt kill my ears

I have a 60GB Cowon iaudio X5, and it's a fantastic MP3 player. It also plays videos which is a nice little addition, so I've got some Simpsons & Futurama on there for when I'm bored on-the-go. The videos play suprisingly well on the screen, and the player even comes with a program to automatically convert videos/DVDs for you.



I'm not a big iPod fan, so this was a great alternative. Check the user reviews out - the sound quality on Cowon players is especially good.

I have MuVo TX se 256mb, using it only when i'm going to school (about 45 minutes from home). one battery / 2 weeks

I had a Diva MP3 player with a CF card, but now that I bought a Samsung Z300 phone, it completely replaced it.

I carry my phone everywhere (unlike the Diva player), and I can download the songs to it from the PC via bluetooth without the need of using any cable/plugging anything in (the PC's bluetooth is always on). If I'm just sitting in front of it like right now, I'll pick up my phone, tell it to connect to my PC (without having to touch the computer), browse to My Documents -> My Music folder, and download the songs I want. I can even do it from the toilette or the living room, lol (10m range). And the same applies to download music from any other mobile phone or computer.

The quality is superb and I have a 512mb TransFlash card.

I have a Sharp Net MD Very Happy


Each MD can play upto 300 minutes (Via PC Recording its just 150 minutes) The sound quality is great. The only drawback is that the MDs cost a bomb. Another drawback can be that it uses a AA battery instead of internal rechargable one.

i have a zen vision m by creative. it's better than the ipod vid. If anyone is looking to buy a hard drive video playing mp3 player, go w/ the creative zen vision m. it has features that the ipod doesn't.
william
Since I rarely listen to music, my mp3 player isn't so great. (I barely use it.) It's a small 128 MB mp3 player from some brandless company. If you're wondering why I have it to start with, it's because I received it as a gift. I normally don't use it to listen to music; I use it to record voice, and as a flash drive. Razz

By the way, I'd like a Toshiba Gigabeat 60 GB. Not solely for music, but mainly for video. I'm not very fond of the Apple iPod, though it's still a great device.
prozacnation
I Have the Zen Vision: M which is the highest quality mp3 player avaliable right now. They have a SNR of 97 which beats the ipod as with previous generations creative has been ahead. The 30Gb is great because it plays divx, xvid and wmv which is more than the ipod video as well as a much longer battery life. Ipod has the edge with its interface which connects to things like car cd players etc and a more scratch resistant screen. The good thing about the zen is the shorcut button which you can customize and the quality of the screen. For audiophiles i recommend the creative range as an owner of the original zen and an ipod user.

Not the best picture but this is what I've got.

Black Zen Vision M

I LOVE IT. I'm pretty glad that it doesn't have many additional accessories like the Ipod ...or else I'd be investing so much on those!

This awesome gaget hold about 30 GIGS of media (music, videos, and/or other electronic files) and the battery life is really great too.


d_curry_09
I gots a Sony PSP, I use mostly for MP3 and Movies. Though I do have Killzone Liberation and GTA for it.

Goods are how much it can do with internet and mine has the Open Firmware stuff so I can mod it and make it look the way I want it to look. Even run homebrew.

Cons are even though it can do all the stuff it lack some major features like I have to turn it on and select a song and put it in random every time. It doesn't just have a button that I can push then it skips through all that so it's not very easy to just wipe out in class and start listening to music.

Next flaw is the general size. Yeah it's portable but finding a pocket to put it in sometimes becomes a hassle. Though the 4in screen is worth it.


Now I'm looking at getting an iPod Video but I hurd rumors of the touch screen iPod which looks really cool and I want to wait for that.

I have a 30GByte white Ipod video (5g, not 5.5g). I am very happy with it. And it actually is the fastest usb external drive I have. By far!

I have a black 1st gen iPod Nano, 4GB. It runs iPodLinux and the original Apple firmware side-by-side, and I can switch between them. I've even been able to put some short video clips on the Nano and watch with Linux. iTunes worked fine with it. I use Winamp to put my music on it now though, since iTunes was crashing at me.

Lol, it's firmware.

EDIT: It wasn't the iPod that was making iTunes crash, it was just doing that by itself. Generally it would freeze my entire machine for minutes at a time between changing songs Sad
