i've never tried a Zen Micro (looking into getting a red one) but right now after my IPOD mini breakage(mentioned some time ago) I currently am using an ipod shuffle 1gb. besides being hardly bigger than a stick of gum, it holds a gig of music, and best of all it's completely random ( i like randomness) also, I didnt want another Ipod mini and didnt want to get a regular ipod, but I needed something to play my LEGALLY PURCHASED mp4's , which wont play on a zen (sniff) and my only other option would be to burn them to a cd ( to bulky for me). but Ipod Shuffle 1gb is my current favorite. ( I just wish they had one in black )

I like the Zen Micro's design and stuff, but the software it uses sucks. I'd rather go for a iRiver H10: http://www.iriveramerica.com/prod/hd/h10_red.aspx

Haha, Rio's are ok. The Carbon and the Forge are nice, but the Karma is hideous and the software for the Karma sucks.

I don't think I have ever came accross a Sony player. I know there out, but never came across any.

Personally I don't like Sony. Half there products are manufactured by them, by the other half are just rebadged garbage most of the time. They do this simply to cover the market gaps that are there without needing to use too much resources in the process.

The fairly new Sony Network Walkman MP3 player is pretty nice. It's aluminum, and very compact. In fact, it's the smallest 20gb hard drive based MP3 Player out in the market today. The only thing I don't like is the user interface and the screen.
