Default MP3/Video Player

Possibilities

Which do you think is the best? I want one that can play avi/mp4 if possible. Has to be in that price range.

I liked the $120 ZEN. Is it any good?

If you can wait for it to get back in stock, you should consider this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16855604004

Brown is sucky, yes, but it is 30 gigs and only 100 bucks. Zunes are awesome, IMO, much better than IPOD.

Oh, and Zens are alright, but I honestly don't think its worth 120. Only 8 gigs?

i own a Y2-P2 and its a touch screen and their awsome, the sound is SO PERFECT!!! i recommend the p2, I hear gps firmware is to be released soon on it, you can now download firmwares with games on and new looks(p2 skins).

their reliable imo

if you buy one then pm me, i can tell you how to convert stuff and things.

I normaly download youtube vids and convert them to .svi for my p2 and then it plays them well

i've always used Ipods. I have a 30gig video ipod, and it works wonders. I haven't had a single problem with it yet, battery life is amazing...so i really don't have any complaints, except that they are a little expensive...and that you must use Itunes.

I would of said get an ipod as i have the ipod 30gb which are okay but I've had far to many problems, but the zune is so much cheaper which is awesome shame about its look though. I also would say the ipod touch but they are a bit expensive

Well, the P2 sounds very interesting. I'm short on cash so I'm want the best bang for the buck. I only have access to say around $200. This is even a gamble. As my parents want to buy my share of the PS3. I own the least and I play the most. So they're trying to make it so I need permission lol. With this $200 I need to buy some soccer cleats and the mp3. I also have $20 on me + $40 I will get in July/August (allowance since I'm not allowed to work yet). I can get the cleats later, as I have a crappy pair that can probably hold out atm. So total, I guess you could say I have $260 to spend on cleats and mp3.

I have a cheaper version of the Sansa and it works fine. Only thing that sucks is that the randomization isn't great. It picks favorite songs that you will quickly tire of, and you'll never hear other songs at all... No other problems so far.

I wouldn't get a Zune because, well, its a Zune, and even if its old or new its always gonna suck, so I wouldn't go with that. Plus, we don't know if the topic creator has that much stuff to put on, so maybe he wants something small.

That 8GB Creative player looks EXTREMELY nice.
