Yeah, but there you go. I mean, Itunes is a good program. I have used it, but thats only to play music on my computer.

I'd find it very hard to syncronise my music using it, and especially syncronising pictures from my Pictures, which I dont store them on, and videos which you have to buy on Itunes unless there are some clever methods that the manual doesn't tell you of getting them on. I tried many different movies, even Quicktime files on a mates I was staying with, and it wouldn't accept them!

Just wait though a year or so, and ask your daughter how much life shes getting from it. i'm sure for one thing liek most, she wont care about the naff audio quality.

I'm sorry about my last post by the way at the bottom, but I do get really stressed at people choosing Ipods over something good... again, my opinion, but you know?!

Seems alright actually but shame it stops at 6gb...

Anyways, based on looks its good, but for an audio player, you shouldnt really base it on that... and oh look... no more information on specs

And yeah i agree with Pink Flloyd. If you want a nice looking piece of crap get an ipod. Personally if my local store were offering ipods at £5 and Zens at £100, I would take the Zen everytime...well maybe i would take a couple of ipods as well. Seems there are millions of lemmings out there to sell it to that wouldnt know a decent player, if they heard it....

I suggest an iRiver H10 20GB. It has great sound quality and is easy to use.
