Default Re: Ipod Or Creative?

The Zen Vision M owns the iPod Video. Unlike the one obscure video format that the iPod supports, the Vision M supports the formats that people ACTUALLY use, such as AVI, DivX, XviD etc. And yes, the Vision M's screen quality is WAY better. The images are sharper, more colors are produced and you get a better video than what you'll get with the iPod Video. Oh and even with the increased screen colors, at least the Vision M lasts longer in terms of battery life.

Well Atrac3 is a pretty good format, but I hate how it's proprietary so you have to convert if you want to play it on any other player.

Yeah, I hate how it works... I just wanted to throw the mp3s on the hard drive and listen to it.. like REAL mp3 players...

if I wanted to use a different computer to load music on this thing, I would have to format the player's hard drive, bah.

Yeah but what I do love about Atrac, especailly 3, is the quality is amazing, and when using this, you get around 50 hours battery life on the latest model. Thats just fantastic, becuase Atrac uses up so litle power compared to MP3.

So I don't blaim Sony for wanting to use the format. Wanting to use MP3 of course also is a good choice, but I would convert my collection just for the battery life quite honestly.

You know what surprises me is that there are school that are restricting MP3 players. My school doesent restrict any kind of music player.

My personal thoughts on that is that school should allow music players, music is a huge part of society and i believe it is a very important part of it.
