Mp3 player: what do you have?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Curious on what others have.

I've had a Sony 1gb for a few yrs now. Very basic... I think I paid 30ish for it, maybe 40. I bought it for work.... fit nicely in my pocket.

I went shopping for a larger one, as I'm going to be making a very long drive soon, and need more than 1gb.

I went with another Sony, http://www.trustedreviews.com/mp3/re...Z-E436F-4GB/p1 . It was on sale..... although I don't need the video screen, this will work....and I've had good luck with it.

I'd like to hear what others have as I am searching for ideas for one for my daughter, she would like one that docks....but its not on her priority list because the one she has works still

I have a SanDisk Sansa Exspress 1GB but it has a micro SD card slot so I can have many Gb of music on cards.
It also has a built in digital fm tuner and a recorder.
It was $7.99 on woot.com, but you can usually find one somewwhere for around $25-$30

0.

I broke 3 ipods in a year. Broke 2 sonys in a year.

I got a few from the dollar store so I could at least listen to the radio while I worked.

I don't think I was overly rough with them, I just found out they havn't quite figured out how to keep making them work if you go skiing with them on, or even just sit on a beach!! :P.

Think that's what I had. Now I use my iPhone to store and play music.

SanDisk and Creative tend to have the best user reviews for price, audio quality, and how long they last. That would probably be a good starting point.

I have a Sony Walkman 4gb. I like it alot, it is user friendly and easy to charge!

I have a Sony, I think it's a 2 gb. I really like it. It's easy to charge, easy to load, and it's small. I also bought a SanDisk Fuse that plays videos but I've never used it.

I have an iPod classic. It's has a lot more space than you're looking for, though.

iPod! I think they're durable, easy to use, and Apple's tech support is awesome (great customer service and very helpful) if you end up needing it.

I have one of the first gen ipod nanos and I love it. Its only 2 gig but It definately works fine for me! I bought it new and have loved it. It even survived going for a bit of a swim.... our hot water heater (which is in my closet) busted and leaked water everywhere and my suitcase had my ipod in it (also in the closet floor) and was soaked but the ipod survived! LOL!

I've got an ipod as well, 30gb I believe. I've had it for over 3 years, and use it everyday to watch movies on my lunch break at work. I my Ipod!

I have nothing against ipods, except for the price

Here is the trick though, Apple has a huge following of trendy type people. So everytime a new style comes out there are usually very nice used ones on craigslist or ebay! I would try there! I think the week after I bought mine I saw one on there for $60 because the new style was released

Or refurbished ones from Apple because then you still get a one year warranty and the option to buy apple care.

I can't believe anyone would go through the trouble to buy a whole separate player for just 2gigs. 2 gigs is nothing - maybe a dozen albums unless you encode them at low quality. Sure, some may think "thats enough for me", but that leaves you either changing out albums frequently or listening to the same thing.

A separate mp3 player is low on my list of priorities (isn't even on it in fact), were I to buy one SanDisk would probably be what I'd go with just because they're cheaper and outlive most "trendy" players.
For those who don't have a lot of money, look at your cell phones. Some have expandable memory. A 2 to 8 gig card is fairly cheap.

I have an ipod but I also use my phone as an mp3 player so that I don't have to carry so many things. I need my music at the gym but I definitely can't be taking both and ipod and a phone in there with me, i'd lose one for sure. My ipod is pretty old and I think it has 30 gbs on it and about 15 are taken up with music, and it mostly just sits in my room on one of those stereos for ipods and I listen to it at home. I wish I had the itouch or an iphone because there is so much more you can do with those..

I have an Ipod, I think it's 30gb, since the retail price was $180. If you do go the Apple route, I recommend the extra Apple care protection plan.

I have the 4gb and I love it too !! I've had it for a long time and have nothing bad to say about it.

I have the first gen. ipod nano, my major complaint is that it scratches easily.

I plan on getting a newer mp3 this year, one that can record songs, and has radio. I don't care about the video capabilities, my eyes are bad enough - what's the point of watching movies on a 1 inch screen? LOL.

I love the idea of using SD cards to expand memory, I will probably go that route!

120GB iPod.... love it - got everything in it... movies, photos, music, podcasts... just love it.
post #22 of 26
I use my Envy2 for music...I have the storage card for an extra 2 gb (im going to get a 4gb card soon) and it holds all my songs and photos on there and then makes easy transfer from the computer to the phone or the other way around since Im always putting pics onto my comp for here...

I have a red ipod nano 8gb. I LOVE it. It's engraved from my husband. I really wanted a red one, but Jon kept telling me they don't make them! But they had a limited time special where they were selling red ones.

I have a 2nd generation IPod Nano. Which is currently not working!!!! Every since Apple did a new software update a few months back several on the 2nd gen nanos have had this "white screen of death". It will play, but I can't see the screen, thus have no earthly idea what I'm selecting.

However, I've had it for 2 1/2 years and have been very satisfied with it up to this point. So, I'm starting to shop around for another MP3 player and will stick with IPod. I really want an IPod Touch though....

I bought a Sandisk Sansa E series 4gb almost 2 years ago. No problems and I have dropped it a few times! It has the MicroSD slot so you can always add more later. However, I want to get one that will hold all my music at once, so I would probably get the 60gb ipod when I can afford even a used one!

I have a creative zen v plus. I have the 2gb one in pink and white. It works for me, I don't need anything that holds video and a ton of music because I also have an sd card in my cell phone with music on it. Usually it is hooked up to the stereo in my bedroom. It has a spot on top that opens and you hook your mp3 player into a cord that is built in.
