Well, I really like the iPods. They're great for what they do. If you want video and games and all that a Nano probably isn't a great choice, but you can't go wrong for the music.

I've had 3 iPods before, always been awesome. A shuffle, a 1G Nano, and a 2G Nano.

It really depends what you're are looking for. If you already have a large catalogue of mp3's then maybe just go for the ipod. However, if you want to use a greater variety of codecs, id choose the creative, cowon, archos or iriver players.

I voted for the walkman as a nice middle ground- its a fantastic player. If you like to watch video then the archos 405/605 is a no-brainer.

Cool. Try upping the bitrate on your MP3s. Well, if you're using the crappy iPod headphones, it won't matter...
