      Anything but ipod

      I like my Zen Touch, but it's a bit out of date (2½ years old)
      This space is empty... or is it?

        'Bout the same age as my Zen Micro. If I still had my other, more-paying job I'd've bought a newer player by now, but my micro still suits me just fine. Hell, my old RCA Lyra still works great and it's around 5 years old.

            You'd have to be moron to not to get an iPod these days. Its complete dominance assures that it has more accessories than any other MP3 player and that its the MP3 player used in innovative new schemes to integrate personal audio/video into everyday goods and services. Refusing to buy an iPod now is like refusing to use Windows...

              Since all I particularly want it to do is play music, I don't see that accessories are important.

                The iPod plays music just as well as any other MP3 player and gives you the option of buying accessories down the road, even if you don't think you'll want any at the moment. Buying another MP3 player limits your options for no discernible gain.

                  Except cost. iPods, due to their fashionable status, cost more than similarly speced MP3 players. Moreover, they don't play WMAs or oggs. There are a few reasons to get a different player over an iPod. For the price of a 1GB iPod Shuffle, I can get a 2GB player that plays WMAs and oggs and has a small screen showing track listings. For the price of a 2GB iPod Nano I can get a similar (but less pretty) 8GB player, saving me £60 over the 8GB iPod Nano.

                  That's enough reason for me not to get one.

                    And you don´t have to bother with crap applications like iTunes and having your mp3s locked to the iPod. And then there´s the battery issue and the lack of radio and microphone...

                      I use my Ericsson K800i with 1 GB card as an MP3 player.

                          Could you explain a little more about this?

                            If you buy music through iTunes they´re in the aac format that only plays on iPod. And while it plays mp3 just as well, it doesn´t support either .wma or .ogg (which really isn´t a problem, but still... ;-) )

                              I have a cheap SD-card based player. Marvelous little device, 15€ or so. I could also use my phone to play music.
