    New MP3 player advice

    I am looking to buy a new MP3 player I am currently looking at buying one of the two but I am open to ideas as well (other than ipods).

    The two I am looking at are:

    Creative Zen V plus (8G)

    Creative Zen Vission M (30G)


    I am undecided on if I need a large memory or not which is why I have the two choices. I am going from a Carbon Rio 4GB which I did find the memory a little small, but I loved the compact size. In fact I loved my Carbon and I would be tempted to buy the new 6G one but the battery has failed on the old one which has put me off, and I want somthing new. Oh It must have a radio as well

    link to creative ones (click on the two mentioned and compare for specification on them):

    For the record I hate Ipods, I dont like the way they have the monoply on Mp3 players, I hate the fact they are expensive and come with nothing, and most of all I hate itunes so I will not be having on of those

    any gen would be great thanks

    I couldn't agree more on your ipod views, saw the title and entered to make sure you were not considering one.

    My brother has a 30G creative of some sort (unsure of the model) but it's really good to use and he hasn't had any problems with it.

    Ipods are naff. I heard the batteries die after a short period of time.

    My friend bought an MP3 player from Argos not so long ago. It wasn't expensive at all and could hold many of songs. A browse around Argos might be worthwhile.

    I have a Rio Carbon Mat. Absolutely great Mp3 players, great sound quality long battery life. Only thing I would say when you get your's don't upgrade to the latest firmware. It turns down the maximum volume for public health concern rubbish.

    Cant recommend them enough though. Charge through USB also

    If you can live with 4GB, get the SE W950i instead. Top phone and touch screen MP3 player too. It's bootiful.

    It depends on budget and if you need more memory than 8gb.

    I aggree about IPods, let the consumer deside on music source and file format not the manufacturer.

    One thing I have discovered that mine can not do is ply the music via the USB, pity because if it could then I could connect it to my X-Box 360!
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!
